Honda has announced it will cease production of its BR-V in India.

The BR-V, a seven-seater SUV, is an important model in Honda South Africa's line-up.

Speaking on the announcement, Dinesh Govender, general manager for Honda SA, said: "Honda Motor Southern Africa has no plans to discontinue the BR-V and is currently securing sufficient stock of the BR-V from India while the alternate factory is being set up for production.

"The BR-V remains one of our pillar models in the local line-up, and is currently the only seven-seater sport utility vehicle (SUV) in its price class. This affords the BR-V a significant advantage over its competitors, and consistently makes it one of our top two best-sellers in South Africa along with the Honda Amaze compact sedan."

Recently refreshed

Honda updated its BR-V for the 2020 model year and brought about changes to both the interior and exterior.

All BR-V models come standard with a five-year/200 000km warranty, and three-year AA Roadside Assist. A new four-year/60 000km extended service plan is included on the Honda BR-V Comfort and Elegance models, and is available as an option on the Trend. 

Service intervals are every 15 000km.
