All-new 2022 Honda BR-V launched in Thailand - Honda Sensing standard, RM 15k more than Veloz

All-new 2022 Honda BR-V launched in Thailand - Honda Sensing standard, RM 15k more than Veloz 01

  • Fully-imported (CBU) from Indonesia
  • 2 variants offered
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also standard across the range

While Malaysians wait for the arrival of the all-new 2022 Honda BR-V, our neighbour north of the border has just launched the jacked-up 7-seater crossover. Though that segment holds a smaller market share, the second-generation BR-V is the most expensive among rivals in Thailand.

Only two variants are offered in the Kingdom, the E variant which starts from THB 915,000 (~RM 115k) and the EL variant which is priced from THB 973,000 (~RM 122k). Compared to the Toyota Veloz which starts from THB 795,000 (~RM 100k) and the Mitsubishi Xpander which starts from THB 799,000 (~RM 101k), the BR-V’s price sounds steep.

Like its 7-seater rivals, the Thai-spec BR-V is fully-imported (CBU) from Indonesia but it is well-equipped on the safety front with Honda Sensing advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) and Honda LaneWatch being available as standard.

Though the 7-seater market in Thailand is small and the Mitsubishi Xpander leading based on recent sales data, will the all-new BR-V strike a chord there?

Back home, the all-new BR-V could be arriving in Malaysia some time this year as Honda Malaysia had hinted that 2 more models will be launched in 2022 following the Civic FE’s local debut. One of them is the all-new HR-V which just celebrated its first delivery this week, so could the all-new BR-V be next?
