Honda has lifted the covers off its facelifted BR-V in Indonesia, handing the seven-seater crossover subtly updated exterior styling and a few small changes inside.

Up front, the refreshed BR-V has ditched the majority of the pre-facelift model's chrome-effect trim, with the designers instead opting for more reserved black finishes. The headlamps, meanwhile, gain LED daytime running lights.

There’s also a new front bumper, boasting deeper creases and redesigned foglamp bezels. The silver-painted skid-plate, too, has come in for some changes.

Round back, the changes aren’t quite as obvious, although vertically positioned reflectors have been added to the rear bumper and a new chrome-effect strip links the taillamps. Fresh 16-inch alloys have also been added to the mix.

And inside? Well, Honda has made minor changes to the facia, while the flagship derivative’s cabin benefits from leather-trimmed seats with understated red accents. The steering wheel and gear knob also gain the leather treatment, while an eight-inch touchscreen has been added to this variant.

Nothing new under the bonnet, with the Japanese firm’s familiar naturally aspirated 1,5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine still sending its 88 kW and 145 N.m to the front axle via either a six-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission.

No word yet on when Honda Motor Southern Africa plans to introduce the updated model to the local market...
