    Yeah, it's really what you want, take for example us, me and my wife agree to buy a CRV, what I want is a 2nd hand 3 year old model to save 500k, what she wants is brand new despite the price. So, get what you want, what you really, really want, hehehe...

    - hindi ka sanay sa long or wide SUV
    - u want to save 200k
    - you don't want too high of a vehicle to ingress and egress
    - u want the bells and whistles of the TOTL vs a bare SUV

    When I had 2 small kids then, I got the crdi Tucson since size was appropriate for us and I wanted better handling and a quick car. Now I have 4 kids so I chose the new monty.

    I don't think they created this to "compete" head-to-head with any particular segment. There are so many choices at this price point (from top of the line subcompacts, to entry-level compacts, to entry level crossovers, to top of the line Avanzas, Mobilios, Ertigas, to entry level innovas etc.). I feel it's an "aspirational, do-all vehicle" for single-car startup families who want the most car for their money, but put a premium on style and comfort. Wouldn't buy one though coz this will probably test your patience when it comes to power on tap.

    Everyone here pretty much is aware of the mid-sized SUV's but is the extra ₱₱₱ worth it considering the TOTL Honda BR-V is priced at 1.119M?

    At this price I'll get Innova anytime.

    But for me if they price at the same level with Ertiga, Avanza, etc, then it will be worth considering.

    Agree.
    Pinagsiksikan sa loob ang BR-V ang pitong normal size na Pinoy.

    Can't compare a BR-V to Eve/Fort/Mont.
    If you are after the price, better get even the lowest variant ng Innova.

    If size matters to you, no amount of bells and whistles can comfort you if you can't carry what's needed to be carried. This is particularly true if it's going to be your only car for a considerable amount of time.

    Just to reiterate what people has been saying, choose a vehicle based on your specific needs. Daily urban driving with one to four passengers or an occasional long trip but minimal cargo space requirements? The BR-V should fit the bill. But if you plan to do frequent long drives with a packed vehicle, or you carry a lot of stuff on a regular basis, have a senior citizen family member that requires a wheelchair to be brought along, etc... then go bigger.
