Honda Brio Expert Review - Check Advantage and DisadvantageThe Japanese Honda Motor Company with its branches stretched in the mobility industry has come up with an eye-catching hatchback Brio. The Brio was introduced in 2011 in India, a 5 door hatchback with Honda’s iconic i-VTEC petrol engine.
The Brio is a city car with front-wheel drive. 80 percent of the spares are sourced from India for the south-Asian market in Brio assembly. In 2016 the Brio got some upgrades like the facelift, CVT and new trim line. The brilliant Japanese technology is now accessible to all, thanks to Brio. The Brio has raised the bar in the small car segment making it tough for other car makers but beneficial for the society.
Honda Brio Exterior
Brio is like Honda family got a sweet little Baby. Brio looks cute and small, and a bit naughty with its new body trim. Starting from the front, the baby eyes like headlamps, the chrome grill and the Honda logo at the center gives it a beautiful look. The character line of the car gives it an aerodynamic advantage as well as looks. The new alloy design for the top-end model distinguishes it from the others very well. The rear is also worth a look with the tailgate spoiler, superb tail-lamps and the most astonishing glass tailgate.
The glass tailgate might look delicate, but it is not as it looks rather it’s tough and won’t just shatter even if reasonable force is applied to close the tailgate. The rear glass comes with a defogger for better visibility. This car is available in various colors such as Alabaster Silver, Majestic Blue, Taffeta White, Urban Titanium, Rally Red and Crystal Black Pearl.
Honda Brio Interior
As new as the Brio is from the outside it is exquisite inside, the premium dashboard with carbon finish give a sporty feel to the car from inside the air conditioner and the audio system gives a relaxed and musical ride to the passengers as well as the driver.
The Brio VX comes with the sporty black interior, an advanced integrated audio system with Bluetooth, USB and aux-in digital AC controls with Max Cool functionality. The premium and spacious beige interiors for E and S trims, triple analog sporty meter with white illumination, steering mounted audio controls and handy tilt steering give this car Upper Hand in the segment.
The Brio makes room for more, this spacious interior gives great legroom and the boot of 175 liters can accommodate the only considerable amount of stuff. The seats ensure the comfort well as the floor console Cup holder and the front door pockets can hold the fluids well in place. The engine cannot be heard inside the cabin it is as quiet as any other premium Honda gasoline engine but at high revs the engine notes are audible.
