4. SUV or MPV? There is bit confusion in calling BR-V a sports utility vehicle (SUV) or a Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV). However, it has been known as SUV by Honda. But in every case it is same as the MPV. Due to its long side profiles and seven seater feature put it into MPV category. The bold styling of the wide bonnet, chrome grill divided in to two parts, wide bonnet, body cladding and skid plates gives it a muscular look and thus making it as SUVs. In a look BR-V seems to be ready for off roading vehicle. BR-V is comfortable, spacious and a best to ride vehicle. It is a SUV car but the given features are like MPV. Overall it is a nice car but it will be a bit to hard compare it with the Hyundai Creta. Apart from Creta the new Duster is also available here which is capable for best off riding in its segment. At the front of the price Honda must have a thoughtful strategy in BR-V segment so that it could compete with competitors in terms of price.
