As recently revealed at the 2015 Bangkok Motor Expo, here is another look at the new Honda BR-V for Thailand. Available as a five- or seven-seater there, the Active Sport Crossover is expected to go on sale in the Thai market early 2016. In the meantime, Honda Thailand has revealed a new video showcasing its BR-V in action.

Having shown you the exterior of the car on several occasions already, it is safe to say that not much has changed since we last saw the new Honda BR-V. The only difference between this and the model we snapped in Thailand is that this one doesn’t wear the brand’s sporty Modulo styling kit.

For power, the BR-V has only been known to feature the same 1.5 litre SOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine as seen on the Jazz and City. The four-pot puts out 117 hp at 6,000 rpm and 146 Nm of torque at 4,700 rpm. Drive is sent to the front wheels via an Earth Dreams CVT automatic transmission.

The interior design is also largely similar to what we’ve seen before. The BR-V adopts a similar cabin to the Honda Jazz and Honda City B-segmenters. The dashboard features a central touchscreen display, with climate controls and readouts positioned just beneath it.

The triple binnacle instruments are also familiar, along with a steering wheel we’ve seen on the previous-generation Jazz and City models too – unlike the Brio’s thicker three-spoke wheel we saw featured in Japan and Indonesia.

However, what this video best details is the BR-V’s seating and cargo functionality, both for five- and seven-seater variants. In the clip, it is obvious that the seven-seater’s rear-most bench is a 50:50 split-folding type, but do note that the third-row seat’s base across the bench is a single piece.

As previewed by the video, if you want the third-row seats to tumble forwards for more cargo space, you’ll have to sacrifice seating for both seats at the same time. The arrangement is a familiar one adopted by Honda, unlike Toyota’s arrangement for its new seven-seater Avanza MPV. There, the rear-most seats are separated from each other, making it possible to fold just one half of the third row – using one side for seating, the other for cargo storage.

On the five-seater, ample cargo room is available from the start. But, if you insist on having more space, the 60:40 split second-row seats can be folded away and tumbled very easily with a single pull of a lever. The middle-row seats are also a lot more flexible than Toyota’s 50:50 arrangement in its equivalent Rush or Avanza MPV. The BR-V’s 60:40 bench offers the ability to fold the shorter half of the bench for cargo use, whilst the longer half still offers seating for two.

The Honda BR-V will almost certainly debut in Malaysia some time next year. Question is, would you prefer it if Honda offered both five- and seven-seater options here like it does in Thailand? Or, would you prefer just one over the other? Which will it be? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
