The Honda BR-V will be equipped with the Honda Sensing safety package, similar to other Honda models such as the CR-V and Accord. However, to match the price of popular MPV models, Honda may select specific technologies from the Honda Sensing package for the BR-V. Currently, Honda has announced that lane monitoring technology will be available on the highest trim level, L.

The Honda Sensing package typically includes advanced safety features such as automatic braking to minimize collisions, automatic adaptive headlights, adaptive cruise control (including low-speed range), front vehicle departure notification, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

The pricing for the Honda BR-V has not been officially announced, but Honda dealers are indicating a price of around 700 million VND. If this price is confirmed, the BR-V will be more expensive than its main competitors in the segment, the Mitsubishi Xpander (priced at 598-698 million VND) and the Toyota Veloz (priced at 658-698 million VND). It’s worth noting that Honda models often have slightly higher valuations compared to their peers, except for the Honda City.

Like the Mitsubishi Xpander, the Honda BR-V is also developed in Indonesia, the largest MPV consumer market in Southeast Asia. In Indonesia, the BR-V comes standard with LED headlights. The dimensions of the BR-V are 4,490 mm in length, 1,780 mm in width, and 1,685 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,700 mm. These dimensions are comparable to the current best-selling MPV model in the segment, the Mitsubishi Xpander, which measures 4,695 mm in length, 1,750 mm in width, 1,750 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,775 mm.

Inside, the BR-V offers a 7-seat configuration and comes with a standard 7-inch touchscreen entertainment screen. Behind the steering wheel, there is a 4.2-inch TFT screen providing additional information. The BR-V in Vietnam will be powered by a 1.5-liter engine delivering 119 horsepower and maximum torque of 145 Nm. It will be paired with a CVT automatic transmission.

Customers in Vietnam can start placing orders for the Honda BR-V in June, and deliveries are expected to begin in July.
