The most affordable Honda in the country gets a revamp. What's new?
A nip and tuck for the Brio was long overdue, considering that it had been around for about half a decade. The little Honda was lauded for its city-friendly proportions and peppy motor, but sales did slump a fair bit purely because the opposition kicked things up a notch. For the first time in five years, the hatch has been given a facelift to take on the newer lot. But are the changes good enough? Changes to the...read more »

Honda Brio Highlights
The Honda Brio is currently the oldest car in the Japanese carmaker’s lineup. That said, it did receive an update in 2016 that included an all-new bumper and grille combo like the one seen on the Amaze sedan. At the rear, it now gets a stubby spoiler and LEd lights with updated graphics. The nippy little hatchback gets a reliable 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol motor and a long feature list. The Honda Brio is priced at Rs 4.73 lakh (ex-showroom) and undercuts rivals such as the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10.
Honda Brio Exterior and Interior
The new face has given the Brio a more mature look. While it may not suit everyone’s taste, the Brio does stand out from the crowd. The compact dimensions of the Brio comes in handy while driving within city limits. The glass hatch at the rear continues to be its standout feature.
This where the updated Brio truly stands out from its predecessor. The drab-looking dashboard of the older version has been swapped for a much better looking setup that is in line with the Amaze’s cabin. The quality and fit-finish, however, are a notch below the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10. The all-black theme with dull silver and carbon-fibre textured accents add a hint of sportiness to the overall package. The ergonomics are spot on and everything from the new digital air-conditioning controls to the knobs and switches for the audio system are well within reach. Other features include a new instrument cluster, power windows all around, seat-height adjust amd tilt-steering.
Honda Brio Specifications
The Honda Brio is powered by a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine which produces 88PS of power and 109Nm of torque. There are two transmission options to choose from - a 5-speed manual or an old-school 5-speed torque converter. If it’s peppy performance you are after, we suggest you stick to the manual ‘box. Claimed fuel efficiency stands at 16.5kmpl for the auto and 18.5kmpl for the manual.
Honda Brio Competitors
Hyundai Grand i10: The mid-sized hatchback from Hyundai has been given a refresh to keep up with the Ignis. The Hyundai Grand i10 offers a premium interior feel, efficient but peppy diesel engine, fun to drive characteristics and class-leading interior space without burning a hole in your pocket.
Maruti WagonR: Maruti’s tallboy is as practical as little hatches get. While it doesn’t have a diesel engine to offer, the petrol engine is known to be peppy, refined and economical. Like the Tiago, the WagonR offers the convenience of an AMT paired with its petrol engine.
Maruti Celerio: The Celerio was the first car to kick off the AMT revolution in India. The recipe is similar to that of the Tiago - compact dimensions, efficient and reliable engines and a whole lot of efficiency. It doesn’t have the zing of the Tiago, but is a no non-sense hatchback.
Nissan Micra Active: Among the most successful models globally, the Micra brings a polished recipe to India. Compact proportions, zippy engines and just about enough creature comforts to not let you whine. It is beginning to show its age, though.
Maruti Ignis: It may be quirky, but it’s super fun. It’s got space, is comfortable and is the only one in the segment to offer an automatic transmission paired with a petrol and a diesel engine. It’s not the most affordable, but it’s definitely the most unique.
Mahindra KUV100: Mahindra’s SUV-like hatchback turns quite a few heads. Its funky design, fuel-efficient diesel engine and high equipment levels make it a compelling buy, while things like higher engine noise and excessive body roll make it less desirable.
Ford Figo: Among the most value for money hatchbacks you can buy right now. Figo aces the core essentials of features, space and efficiency. Did we mention the diesel is super fun to drive?
If you are in the market for a hatchback, there are plenty of options that you can choose from. While the Honda Brio may not be everyone’s preferred choice, it does feature a unique design that none of the other cars can even dare pulling off. Hence, if you need something that stands out from regular hatchbacks while offering peppy performance, you can’t go wrong with Honda Brio coupled with the high-revving i-VTEC petrol motor.
