Honda BRV I-VTEC 2018
Finally after years there has been started some development in Pakistani automobile sector, companies in Pakistan have started to develop vehicles other than sedans and hatchbacks. Honda BRV is another vehicle which is not SUV but a MPV (multi purpose vehicle) with 7 seats whatever are the pros and cons of vehicle thanks at least Pakistani “nationalist” has another option to select for their families other than Bolan. There were no options in this segment and the available ones were so much expensive, this is a good step taken by Honda as price of vehicle is still little high but there is no doubt it will give little relief to Pakistani families now they have another vehicle in which they can sit and travel together.
Design dynamics and Build Quality of BRV:
Design of vehicle is not so much impressive as like SUV’s, it is an average looking vehicle that is designed to full fill the purpose only. If you found this vehicle without badge you will be able to determine that this is of Honda’s company because its exterior looks more like the combination of Civic and City. One important thing that is new to the design of this Honda vehicle is the ground clearance as all other cars of the company have low ground clearance while this one has enough to travel off road. Overall exterior design of vehicle is fine but not extra ordinary as this is an MPV and expecting more from MPV build in Pakistan is not a good thought.
Moving inside the BRV the first thing you notice is lot of plastic that is everywhere on doors, dashboard, steering wheel and transmission. Again like its exterior if you are familiar with city and civic interior than you will surely find out that it is the combination of both, Right in the front of driver it has simple meters that give usual information as we see in other vehicles not much information usually found in advance and expensive vehicles. It has infotainment screen as well that is also of old generation and didn’t have advance tech like android auto or apple car play.
Engine and Power:
This is not a performance oriented vehicle; it is a simple vehicle that full fills the purpose. It has been loaded with 1.5 Liter four cylinder engine that produces 117 horse power which is not good but enough for traveling in city and to some extent for off road journeys. Top speed of vehicle is 180 KM/H and for doing 0-100 it will take about 15 seconds that clearly defines the capability of the vehicle.
Comfort and Safety:
Comfort zone of vehicle is okay as we Pakistani’s didn’t expect much from local build vehicles, seats are fine and at least have position adjusting option otherwise even the centre arm rests are not present on front and rear. As mentioned it is a seven seated vehicle but if we talk about adjusting adults than it is a six seated vehicle because on second row adjusting 3 adults comfortably is not possible. For passengers on 2nd row only one thing in their favor is the head and leg room at least they can expand their legs on long journeys. It has climate control air conditioner that has nice air throw for front seats and for rear passengers there has been given air vents in the roof those are okay but many not be good enough in hot sunny day especially if there sits 7 passengers all together.
From the safety point of view if we compare this to the vehicles in international market than there are not even 10 percents chances of being approved for driving because the basic safety features are missing like air bags for all passengers are not present, only one air bag is present for driver embed in steering wheel and only other safety feature present in this vehicle is ABS brakes.
This Honda BRV I-VTEC is made only to full fill the purpose, Number of safety and other features in vehicle not match the price tag that is why price of the vehicle is considerably high. Only reason that can make it successful in Pakistan is “having no competition in this segment and only alternative vehicle to Suzuki Bolan for adjusting seven members”
