Exterior Features

Elegance design


The striking design of the BR-V exudes the stylish SUV character that you’ve come to expect from Honda. With silver front and rear bumper garnish, as well as upmarket chrome-finished door handles and side door protectors, it’s designed to give you the appeal of an SUV while still maintaining a look that’s fit for the city.

Elegance profile


The sporty appeal of the BR-V Elegance is further enhanced by the sleek, silver-finished roof rails that not only highlight its versatility, but its looks too. The clean lines and sculpted design, which look good in all the various colour options, are complimented by the uniquely styled 16-inch alloy wheels, which truly emphasise the dynamic physique of the BR-V Elegance.

Rear Styling

The rear of the BR-V Elegance features a connected tail-light design, finished with an LED light guide. The sporty black-and-silver bumper demonstrates the ideal balance of function and form, and brings an air of sophistication to the model.


Interior Features

The BR-V is kitted with a sophisticated yet sporty all-black colour scheme, modern dashboard design and high-quality materials. A highly versatile, spacious three-row 7-seater cabin allows for comfort and convenience.

The silver accents and piano-black finish on the instrument panel, combined with the white-lit 3D speedometer with multi-information display, give the interior a sporty appeal. The BR-V Elegance is fitted with luxurious leather seating.

Space and Versatility

Designed with style, versatility and comfort in mind, the BR-V features three rows of exceedingly comfortable seating. The second row of seats features a 60:40 split with slide and recline options to give you the power to adjust the space for ultimate convenience. The third row is a 50:50-split folding type with reclining options for extra comfort. For any extra passengers, accessing the third row is easy with a one-touch tumble lever that folds away the second-row seat. What’s more, the third-row seat can be tumbled forward quickly and conveniently to give you ample space for any extra items in the back.

br v comfort


The BR-V Elegance hosts a number of added features for your convenience. It boasts a multitude of interior technologies, including the engine start/stop button and Smart Entry System, which allows the key to open the door from the driver’s pocket. The Elegance also comes standard with an Integrated Bluetooth Audio Streaming System with Hands-free Telephone (HFT) and steering-mounted controls. That, in addition to the automatic air conditioner and power-folding side mirrors, ensures that you always have the ultimate combination of comfort and convenience. The Multi-information Display (MID) allows the driver to monitor all important trip and vehicle information.

Safety Features



In order to ensure your safety on the journey, all models come standard with front airbags for both driver and passenger.



When it comes to stopping during an emergency, you can rely on the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) to ensure superior braking performance.
