Honda has revealed the color details of the BR-V compact crossover for the Indonesian market. The car will be offered in six graceful colors. The color monikers include Taffeta White, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Misty Green Pearl and Passion Red Pearl. Honda also claims that silver, green and red paint schemes offered on the new BR-V are brand new colors. The car will tread on 16-inch alloys and will rival the likes of Hyundai Creta.
Honda BR-V will probably feature 1.6-liter i-DTEC motor, which is currently being tested in India. The same powerplant finds its application in Europe and is capable of producing 120 PS and 300 Nm of torque. Other than this, the car is also expected to feature the same 1.5-liter i-VTEC motor that finds its application in Honda City. The engine produces 120 PS @ 6,600 rpm and a max torque of 145 Nm @ 4,600 rpm. These engine options are expected to come mated to either a CVT or 6-speed manual transmission.
If Indonesian pricings are any indications, then the car is expected to be priced a whisker under Rs. 11 lacs, falling in the price bracket of Rs. 10.80-12.40 lacs. Dimensionally, the car stands at 4,455 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width, 1,650 mm in height and 2,660 mm in wheelbase with a ground clearance of 200 mm. The carmaker is expected to start the production of BR-V in April 2016 at the Tapukara, Rajasthan, plant.
