Honda BR-V

The Honda BR-V is a MUV on stilts, which is quite visible and obvious by the looks of it. Thanks to inclined styling at the front, with angular headlamps and front grille, roof rails and side body cladding, the Honda BR-V looks quite rugged for a MUV, thus aiding in enhancing its character.

Honda has always been known for its famous ‘man maximum, machine minimum’ ideology, which is quite evident inside the cabin of the Honda BR-V as well. The cabin feels incredibly spacious for a compact seven-seater MUV, and apart from the capacious second row, even the third row accommodates two adults easily.

The ever-popular 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine from the Honda City, one of the best engines Honda has ever made, has made its way into the Honda BR-V as well. While it might not feel as rev happy as in the City, it impresses you with its refinement and linear power delivery, which is an important pre-requisite for a MUV to deliver a comfortable ride quality.

Proton X70

For a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 feels fairly large and is big enough to put some seven-seater SUVs from one segment above. The Proton X70 is the longest in its class, which dwarfs some SUVs from one segment above, thus giving the Proton X70 a much expensive feel on the outside.

In terms of comfort and convenience, features on the inside, the Proton X70 really outclasses all the SUVs in its category. The X70 feels plush on the inside as well, thanks to the sturdy build quality and impeccable fit and finish, which wasn’t totally expected from a mainstream car maker like Proton.

Due to having the largest dimensions in its category, the Proton X70 feels incredibly spacious when it comes to interior. The legroom, knee room and head room at the rear are comparable to really premium sedans, and thanks to the sliding backrest, the rear seat feels very comfortable even for much longer travel runs.

Honda BR-V

The Honda BR-V looks smart and quite distinctive on the outside, which does give it a character of an SUV. However, on the inside, things are not as premium as they should have been. The dashboard lacks novelty and many premium features have been given a miss here, making things looks slightly less fresh as compared to rivals.

While there is an abundance of space in all the three rows of the Honda BR-V’s interior cabin, one thing which tarnishes the overall feel is the flimsy feel of the seats. In an attempt of maximizing the space on the inside, Honda has equipped the BR-V with thin seats, which lack a bit of under-thigh support and lumbar support as well.

Proton X70

While the Proton X70 is quite big enough giving it an intimidating stance, the overall design is not that eye-catching and distinctive. While the side profile, as well as rear profile, still manages to look quite unique, the front end of the X70 looks quite pale, if going by the segment standards. The grille too looks very simple for a car of this category.

While there is no question on the levels of space on the inside, the rear seat lacks under-thigh support a bit, which robs of some of the comfort to the rear occupants. The short length of the rear bench might be a bit of a trouble to tall passengers.

While the engine feels very responsive and powerful for an SUV this big, the 6-speed automatic transmission of the Proton X70 feels a bit sluggish and doesn’t feel as exciting to drive while shifting gears as in other premium SUVs.
