The 2023 Honda BR-V is showing up big time even before its official local launch with an impressive fuel economy run.
In partnership with the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP), the all-new BR-V 1.5 V CVT managed to earn a fuel efficiency rating of 24.7 km/l. The top-of-the-line 1.5 VX CVT Honda Sensing variant returned 23.48 km/l, while the 1.5 S CVT variant registered 22.61 km/l.
The said fuel efficiency figures were achieved with the following parameters:
- No usage of cruise control
- Driving with an average speed of 70 to 80 km/h
- Low cool in thermostat setting, no. 1 for the blower setting
Delivering the impressive numbers is a standard 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC gasoline engine with 119 horsepower and 145 Nm of torque. It can be paired with either a manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Only the BR-V variants with a CVT were tested by AAP.
