      Hi Anil

      It depends upon you. If you are looking for a five seater SUV that offers good performance in both city and on highways, than you can go for Duster or Terrano. Else, BR-V will be a good SUV for both city and highways. Moreover, it will also offer a seat for seven adults.

      We suggest you to go for Creta, as it is more comfortable and premium in compare to BRV. However, BRV is the only car in its league to offer seat for seven adults.

      May 13, 2016

      Hi Manish

      We suggest you to go for diesel version as it is more fuel efficient than the petrol version. If you are looking for a powerful petrol model than 1.6 petrol unit could be a right product to drive home.

      Hi Aditi

      The BRV is the only SUV in its league to offer seven-seat option to buyers. We believe the compact SUV will be a practical SUV for Indians looking for a family car.

      Hey Thakur, You are wrong.. I have Hyundai Creta SX(O) and it is a perfect SUV. Mostly I drive on rough roads and within 9 months I had completed 40000 kms and still feels like it’s a new car.. From comfort to driving everything is excellent in Hyundai Creta.. Only think I don’t like in Creta is Brakes.. Apart from it everything is good in it.. 🙂

  14. Sreejayan

    What about mileage? I know creta gives only around 9 to 11 kmpl.. what about the vitara brezza? That is also offering tough competition I hear.

      Hi Sreejayan

      The Vitara Brezza is claimed to return an ARAI certified fuel economy of 24kmpl, but in real condition the SUV will give you around 18-20kmpl.

      Hi Padam

      The Honda BRV is a practical SUV that offers high fuel efficiency, spacious cabin and decent power. It solely depends upon you. If you are looking for styling and comfortable cabin than we suggest you Creta else Duster is also a good product to drive home.

      Hi Sohan

      If you are looking for a practical seven-seater SUV, we suggest you to buy BRV. For luxurious and spacious cabin then Creta will be a right product for you, while Vitara Breeza will give you high fuel efficiency and affordability.

      Hi Deepak Sharma

      You can opt for Hyundai Creta or even Maruti Vitara Breeza. The Breeza is a sub-4 metre SUV that will be easier to park and offers decent space to accommodate five adults.

      Hi Zaheer

      We suggest you to go for Ford EcoSport or Maruti Vitara Brezza. Both sub-4 metre SUVs offer high fuel efficiency and have appealing looks.

    I want to buy brv CVT petrol. How is it? Will there be maintenance issues being automatic? I took a test drive it looks like too much noise. But the sales guy told me this is test drive vehicle. Hence the sound. I currently have Honda city petrol SMT. Wld Brv CVT be a good choice?

    • Editorial Team

      Editorial Team
      June 10, 2016

      That noise in the BRV is due to the rubber band effect of the CVT transmision, and you’ll find that in all CVT-equipped cars irrespective of its age or usage. It happens when you rev the engine too hard, but once you’ll get used to of its functioning it will be fine. The idea is to match the speed and RPMs. The BRV VCT is a decent option.

    Boss what about brv 3rd row leg space and comfort…..it’s suitable for long drive

    • Editorial Team

      June 19, 2016

      The third row seats of the BRV are fairly comfortable for regular roads. It’s not an off-roader though.

    I have book Honda Brv-Smt last month how long will it take to reach a dealer.

    • Editorial Team

      It should ideally take about 8-10 weeks to be delivered. Though your dealer will be in much better position to tell you the exact delivery date of your car.

      Hyundai Creta for its comfort, feature-rich cabin and pretty decent ride quality.
