I know a lot, since I've been researching the car for over 2 years now, noting it's issues and complaints since I wanted to buy one. I live in Indonesia, so the BR-V has been around for awhile.

So I will just make this short or I will ramble on.

Think the car not as an SUV, but a tall three row wagon. The raised suspension is only good for City travel, and the engine, powerful as it may be, is just adequate (most powerful in my country, but our car options are limited). The third row seat floor although raised, the headroom is actually quite generous. My height is about 178 Cm, and my head didn't hit the roof liner sitting on the third row. The first and second row is good, standard fare, wish the second row seat can recline more though.

Don't be discouraged about the car resembling Honda Mobilio, which is considered an entry level model. Yes both shared platform and powertrain, but the BR-V has better NVH solutions and better mechanically. Compared to Mobilio, the car has plenty additional sound dampening, on the roof, doors and floor. I think I saw something about less steering vibration as well. Powertrain wise, both use L15 with CVT, but BR-V CVT is oil cooled, while Mobilio does not.

For negative points the car has two things. First, the godawful door panels, it's taken straight out of Brio, it looks and feels cheap. Second, the car is a bit narrow. It's narrower than a Fit/Jazz. So basically the car can be considered as a six seater with 2 person on each row sitting comfortably.

Take a test drive and test sit the car. The driving Dynamics is just okay, it's not a tenth generation Civic, but for people hauler that easily manage unruly pot hole in Urban development settings, it does that with flying colors.

It is a purposeful car that is better than competition in areas that matters, and is probably gonig to be a very reliable car, but other than that it is not too special.
