2022 Honda BR-V debuts in Indonesia, to launch in Malaysia soon

The all-new 2022 Honda BR-V has been launched in Indonesia today in a digital world premiere. The new 7-seater rivals the Mitsubishi Xpander in Indonesia and will rival the Perodua Aruz when it reaches Malaysia.

The 2022 Honda BR-V is launched in four variants, with all variants powered by the same 1.5-litre engine. Power is transmitted to the front wheels either via a CVT or a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Compared to the current Honda BR-V in Malaysia, the 2022 Honda BR-V sports a more aggressive look. Performance-wise, the Honda BR-V ditches the old 1.5-litre SOHC engine to now share the same DOHC 1.5-litre engine (121 PS/145 Nm) a the GN2 Honda City that we get in Malaysia.

On the outside, the all-new 2022 Honda BR-V gets LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. In its range-topping 'Prestige' variant, the Honda BR-V sits on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Convenient features in the all-new 2022 Honda BR-V include Remote-Engine-Start (with AC), walk-away auto lock, Honda LaneWatch, and Smart Entry System.

For the first time, the Honda BR-V is equipped with Honda Sensing and gets full airbags (current BR-V only gets dual front airbags). The Honda Sensing suite includes 

  1. Lead Car Departure Notification System (LCDN)
  2. Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  3. Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  4. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  5. Auto-High Beam

5 colour options are available for the Honda BR-V in Indonesia, namely Premium Opal White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Lunar SIlver Metallic, and Taetta White. The 2022 Honda BR-V is expected to arrive in Malaysia next year.
