From The Experts

Honda BR-V 2019

Compared to the sober-looking Honda Mobilio on which it is based, the Honda BR-V looks more rugged and sporty, which makes it a more viable choice for the current generation potential UV buyers. The raised stance, side body cladding, tweaked front and rear looks, as well as roof rails, do give the Honda BR-V better visual appeal over the Honda Mobilio.

Since it is based on the Honda Mobilio, which has already sent the benchmark in its category when it comes to space, the Honda BR-V too has the same levels of space inside the cabin. The rugged MUV has the same amount of legroom, headroom, shoulder room, and knee room, thus making the Honda BR-V a preferred choice for those who wish to ferry seven passengers at one time.

Toyota Rush

The new Toyota Rush is far more striking and modern to look at compared to the dull and old school looking previous generation model. With features like angular LED headlamps and front bold chrome grille at the front and sleek LED tail lamps at the rear, the new Toyota Rush is definitely a vehicle from present generation aimed at Gen-Y buyers. Not only this, the presence of side body cladding and roof rails do manage to add some macho appeal to the new Rush. 

With the presence of an additional third row of seats, the new Toyota Rush gives the flexibility of a seven-seater, which the previous generations of Rush simply didn’t offer. The two extra seats not only are able to accommodate two extra passengers but also aid in flexible seating configurations, opening up extra boot space as and when required. Apart from this flexibility in space, the new Toyota Rush also has few more bottle and cup holders in the cabin, thus increasing the practicality of it.

Like all the other UVs from Toyota, the Rush feels solidly put together with indestructible build quality despite catering to entry-level buyers. This strong build and nice fit and finish make it reliable to use for a longer run. 

Honda BR-V 2019

Honda has tweaked the BR-V very extensively at the front and rear as compared to the Mobilio on which it is based. However, step inside the cabin, and one might feel disappointed by the fact that Honda hasn’t carried out the same effect on the inside as well. The dashboard, as well as equipment list, has completely been lifted off from the Mobilio without any significant change. And considering that it is positioned alongside many compact SUVs and crossovers in the market, the BR-V lacks many new features which do reduce the appeal of it.

The Honda BR-V carries a premium of almost PHP 100,000 over the Mobilio on which it is based. Since the BR-V carries only exterior visual differences over Mobilio, and no changes to the equipment list, interior cabin layout, and engine and chassis specifications, the price difference seems a lot in actual and not much justified.

The Honda BR-V is powered by the same 1.5-litre petrol engine which is there in the City as well as Mobilio. However, considering that it weighs more than both these cars, it would have been better if Honda had tweaked the engine in the BR-V with added power and torque.

Toyota Rush

As striking the new Toyota Rush looks on the outside, the interior cabin of the MUV feels very simple and could have styled in a much more modern and eye-catching manner. The dashboard feels very staid and boring for a car of this class, with a too subtle approach in designing the instrument console and center panel of the dashboard diluting the overall premium feel of the Rush on the inside.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine with which the Toyota Rush is fitted with is not as exciting as the figures on paper. Thanks to its MUV stance, the power delivery from the engine feels linear, which seems comfortable but is not too involving in overall driving feel.
