Hot on the heels of the HR-V compact SUV which was introduced last year, Honda South Africa has launched the BR-V. It joins the HR-V as the third member of the Honda SUV family. Bearing all the hallmarks of an SUV with styling cues such as a slightly raised ride height, wheel arch cladding and roof rails, referring to the BR-V as an SUV would be a slight disservice to the common use of the term, which for the uninitiated stands for Sports Utility Vehicle and usually refers to far bigger and more capable machinery. Crossover would be a far suitable classification, perhaps even Station Wagon. Either way, the BR-V fills a gap in the market for growing families who have outgrown the confines of a hatchback and who are looking for increased interior space and functionality from their family transport. Lifestyle is a word often used to appeal to buyers in this segment and with the BR-V, it certainly does offer an element of travel and escape with its SUV pretensions.
