What’s it like to drive?
The outgoing BR-V had its fair share of outdoorsy styling features, but the long body shape and boxy rear end screamed ‘MPV’ from the rooftops. The BR-V’s placement towards the more affordable end of the market also meant customers didn’t expect a lot of luxury either. People loved it for its practicality and durability, mostly.

What is the Honda BR-V like inside?

Honda has kept to a functional interior but has stepped up the trim level with full leather upholstery and some decently detailed plastics. Updated tech has also found its way into teh dash with a updated infotainment system and digital gauge cluster.
