- Honda BR-V Prototype officially made a world debut at the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2015.

The much-awaited Honda BR-V is scheduled to be marketed first in Indonesia in early 2016, followed by other countries.

'With the all-new 7-seat BR-V and the rest of the Honda line-up, we will continue to offer exciting products and the joy of driving to our customers in Indonesia.'
Meanwhile, Mr. Úchida said, 'Honda BR-V was developed to fulfill the needs of Indonesian customers. We believe Honda BR-V will be greatly received by customers in Indonesia and become the main attraction in this year's motor show.'
Honda BR-V will be marketed in Indonesia wîth a price range from Rp. 230 to 265 million, and the booking will start from GIIAS onward. The production of Honda BR-V will start at HPM's Karawang factory in January 2016.
