About Honda Brio

Summary

Honda Brio, a Hatchback has 5 versions available in India. Brio has 5 Petrol cars. Honda Brio comes in 5 colours, namely, Alabaster Silver, Rallye Red, Teffeta White, Urban Titanium, White Orchid Pearl.

The Honda Brio is the only hatchback in the Honda scheme of things for India. The petite hatch gained popularity after its launch in 2011 for its peppy engine and decent driving dynamics and of course the Honda badge. Moving on, with Honda focussing on newer cars like the Amaze and the City, the Brio moved to the backburner. With the latest update in 2016, Honda has moved its focus back to the small cars.

The Honda Brio competes against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Ritz, the Hyundai Grand i10, the Ford Figo and the Tata Bolt amongst the hatchbacks. It still misses out on a diesel engine option, but with the market focus back on petrol cars, the Brio is expected to do well.

The 1198 cc Petrol - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 16 kmpl in city and 18 kmpl on highways.

On the inside, the dashboard is entirely new and has been sourced from the Amaze. It gets the Honda City-like layout with rectangular vents and a centre console with the infotainment system and air conditioning controls. While the dashboard is black across the trims, the E and S trims get beige interiors while the top-spec VX gets black interior. It still misses out on a touch-screen option for the entertainment system but gets automatic climate control and height adjustable driver seat.
In terms of safety, dual airbags with ABS and EBD is offered only on the VX trim while driver seatbelt reminder warning is offered on all trims.

The front fascia is new with the aggressive three-part bumper design from the Amaze. The thick horizontal slat on the grille is blacked out with a chrome underline.  The headlamps though remain untouched. The side profile is exactly the same but comes with new alloys. There were speculations about safety owing to the large glass tailgate but the design has been continued with no reports of any related incidences. The rear bumper does get a nip and a tuck for a fresher look.

The peppy 1.2-litre i-Vtec petrol engine continues to power the Honda Brio and develops 89bhp of power and 109Nm of torque. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the engine claims 19.4kmpl ARAI efficiency. The five-speed automatic option is offered only on the top-spec VX trim. While we expected the Brio to get the CVT like the Amaze, the torque converter works quite well.

Honda Brio Expert Review

Honda Brio: First Drive Honda Siel Cars has always been known as a car maker for the niche class, and brand Honda is synonymous for its high quality cars. The line-up includes Jazz, City, Civic, Accord and CR-V. Jazz was Honda's premium hatch and with that, Honda had entered the small car segment. Everything that the Jazz offered was good. Good performance, styling, interior fit and finish of the features offered. However, Jazz got a cold response and the main culprit behind this was its pricing. Facing heat from all auto majors, recently Honda dropped its prices of Jazz and today Honda is overbooked with its Jazz bookings. Nonetheless, the Honda Jazz is still a premium compact hatch, so....

Good :

Although it is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the Brio looks quite nice to me, the design is quirky and different from other run of the mill hatches. Evidently there's no tailgate at the rear, there's just a glass hatch, now this dramatically increases rear visibility and hence makes this car very easy to park. I've owned this car from June 2015 - July 2018 and it was my daily driver since 2016 so I used it comprehensively for about 2 years before selling it. The interiors for one feel quite nice with the beige and black theme going on, the Center Console is basic and mainly consists of a head unit for the music system and A/C controls below that use dials which are easy to operate. The music system featured in the car is hooked up to 4 speakers which provide a lot of bass. Now coming to the performance, this car features the same 1.2 litre 4 Cylinder i-VTEC Petrol engine which is found on its elder sibling the Honda Jazz, this motor is good for 87 bhp and 109 nm of torque. The steering also provides good feedback, it's light at low speeds and weighs up well as the speeds increase and let's you know what's going on the road, the cornering stability is pretty good too, I had the chance of driving it through hilly areas once and I have to say I had a lot of fun while cornering in this car. Ride quality is pretty good too, drives around the city are comfortable and you mostly don't feel small bumps and potholes in the road. Getting in and out of the rear seat is pretty effortless too. Servicing also doesn't cost much about ₹ 4-5k per service, which I think is reasonable for a car made by Honda because they usually charge a premium over the competition.

Bad :

The Honda Brio definitely needs Dual Airbags and ABS as standard fitment to further strengthen it's case, fuel economy also needs major improvement as the car averages around only 12-13kmpl in the city and 16 kmpl on the highway (this also depends on your driving). There's no low end punch to this engine, it transforms at around 4 k rpm and then it really gets going and keeps pulling till the red line which is a pinch above 6 k rpm. The rear seat passengers also don't get much legroom although headroom is sufficient for someone of my height (5'10"), taller people might feel a bit claustrophobic. The boot space is okay for when you're out grocery shopping or for a weekend trip but it isn't enough for large or long items.
