Brio highlights

October 04, 2016: Honda India has finally launched the Brio facelift at Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It introduced its most economical offering – the Brio – in the year 2011. The hatchback borrowed its petrol engine from the Jazz – 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol. The motor puts out 88PS of max power and 109Nm of peak torque in the Brio and is mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission. In the facelift, Brio gets a bigger, more aggressive front bumper. This bumper is identical to the one on the Amaze. The nose of the car gets a single slat grill with the Honda insignia and the teardrop headlamps are carried forward from the older model. The only noticeable in the rear of the car is the addition of the spoiler with brake light. The interiors have been completely changed and the Brio now gets its dashboard from the Amaze, Jazz and the BR-V. The Brio competes with vehicles such as the Hyundai Grand i10, the Maruti Suzuki Swift, the Ford Figo, the Tata Tiago, among others. It was long due for a mid-life update considering the Amaze (compact sedan based on the Brio) also received the facelift earlier this year.

Honda Brio review


Honda has found a perfect haven here in India. The company's models are tailored to meet the needs of the general masses, and most of them fared well in the market. The Brio was launched five years back, and since then, it's risen to a good position in the market, so that today most people glimpse the vehicle on their street. Designed with a unique and compact presence, the car invokes a persona never seen in a vehicle before. As we delve through the many sides of the machine, we'd have ample room to find out where it stands out and where it could do better. 


1. Handling is very good.

2. Many strong comfort features within.


1. Some might find the cabin small and cramped.

2. Most of the good features are not present in the low end trims.

Stand-Out Features:

1. The Integrated Honda Audio system comes along with radio facility, MP3, USB, Aux-In and many more functions.


The vehicle is designed with the purpose of satisfying the varying needs of an average Indian consumer. Powering the machine is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that displaces 1198cc. The engine combines decent performance with a good fuel economy, slotting a mileage of 19.4kmpl. The engine prowess is balanced by a robust chassis, along with many sound safety elements. Coming to the outside, we thought the car's design was fascinating, but some might find the fresh new theme odd. Some plush features animate the look, such as chrome touches, black window frames, and the fine curves. The interior has been given a serene atmosphere. The interaction of the colors and materials in the place makes a more dynamic air. The higher end variants come with a slew of good features, from a radio system to power windows, adjustable seating, an air conditioner with a heater and many more. 


The car makes its mark with a small and compact body profile, which has also been honed for a racy edge. We thought that the well sculpted wheel arches, neat body lines and agile posture together gave the machine a bold demeanor. 

At the front, the grille has been furnished with a chrome strip with the company's emblem at the center. The teardrop shaped headlamps have been incorporated with halogen lights and all necessary lighting units. 

Meanwhile, the broad front skirts wrap over a thin air dam at the bottom, with fog lamps by the corner. The car's streamlined position leaves its bonnet sinking towards the front, and this creates a more attractive impression at the front. The clean design of the hood, devoid of lines and creases, set the car apart in our opinion. 

The distinct wheel arches, together with the stylish wheels, throw some vigor on the side profile. The subtle creases that run through the door-sides also add to the image, and we thought that the overall effect was brilliant. 

The door handles and outside mirrors wear the color of the body, and this stirs some fervor in the look. The black highlights on the door frames went along with the image perfectly in our opinion. 

When you take a look at the rear side of the vehicle, you feel a more distinguished pulse in the look. The tail region looks unlike any other we've seen before. 

The large rear window at the center and the small tail-lamps by the corner are perfectly aligned. The lower portion of the rear is broader and heavier, and we thought this did spell an odd feel for the image at the rear. 


The cabin is not large, and we've got nothing to hide here. Considering the size of the vehicle, it would be too much to ask for large and spacious interiors. Nevertheless, the presence of some attractive design elements does make up for this, so what the car takes in terms of space, it gives back in the form of a strong drive environment. 

For the higher end variants, there is a dual tone color theme, and we thought this was great. For the lower end variants, the single tone scheme does lack some splendor. 

For the top end variant, the dash has been cloaked with an attractive blend of black and beige. The black region covers the top half, spreading down over the center and the floor console in a manner that we thought was attractive. The lower region of the dash, draping over the glove-box region, is colored in Beige for a more balanced effect. 

Circular AC vents have been evenly posted over the upper region of the dash. Housed at the top of the console is the music system, and the controls to the seating and AC are clustered below. 

A decent storage area opens out over the floor console, which includes two cup holders before the shifter. 

We thought that the steering wheel had a striking character, while the Honda label and silver accents further accentuate this effect. 

A brief overhead hanging stretches over the instrument cluster, which hosts a tachometer, speedometer and other vital readings. 

The door-sides have been colored in Beige, with a black strip that runs over the door-handle. Nominal storage pockets have been included in the door-sides, but we thought they were too shallow to hold anything substantial.


The seats have been given adequate support, while the broad headrests further help relieve strain during the drive. We weren't as happy with the upholstery however, and those accustomed to more lavish ride set-ups would also feel let down. 


Packed within the vehicle is a 1.2-litre SOHC based i-VTEC petrol engine that comprises 4 cylinders and 16 valves. It displaces 1198cc, and generates a power of 86.8bhp at 6000rpm, along with 109Nm of torque at 4500rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission is armed along with the engine, and we thought that shifting was smooth and easy. A smooth power delivery works along with the engine, but we thought that the throttle response could have been better. Nevertheless, the engine paves the way for a thrilling ride with a solid sprinting capacity. The second gear allows the car to settle in neck deep traffic comfortably, without the need to downshift, and this makes it ideal for big city commuters. The engine noise and vibration were contained, but very high speeds do ruffle the engine a bit.


Ride and Handling:

For the braking section, discs at the front and drums at the rear solidify control. Meanwhile, the chassis is composed of a McPherson strut and a torsion beam. Coil springs have been rigged onto both axles, helping to improve stability when driving. We thought that the ride comfort was upto the mark, and the car tackles normal road anomalies with ease. The flow can be hampered at higher speeds and rougher grounds, but it's not nearly as distressing as in some other domestic models. The steering was on the lighter side, and the response was great. We had no issues with braking either, and the light weight and compact set-up of the car enables an ease in taking corners and turning.


We were quite happy with the safety features, which exceed what most domestic brands offer. The downside, however, is that some of the more vital features are absent for the lower end trims. First, the car has been sculpted with a strong ACE body structure, and this helps to minimize damage in case of a mishap. The higher end variants come along with Anti-lock braking system and Electronic brakeforce distribution, and this further strengthens control during the drive. Dual SRS airbags shield the front passengers, but they are not present in the low end variants. Apart from these, standard features include a rear windshield defogger, a driver's seat belt reminder, a day/night interior rear view mirror, and a high mounted stop lamp. An immobilizer guards the vehicle as well, preventing unwanted entry and theft. 


There are 5 trim levels, E, EX, S, V, VX. Starting off, the entry level E trim comes with body colored bumpers, a foldable rear seat structure, a driver's seatbelt reminder, front power windows and a fuel consumption display. Next, the mid range trims between EX and V come with some added cosmetics and functions. This includes a chrome grille, body colored OVRMs and door handles, a 1 DIN audio system with USB and Aux-In and a tachometer, rear power windows, a rear parcel shelf and an accessory socket. The top end trim, VX has everything the model series has to offer. This includes alloy wheels, front seatbelts with pretension, power foldable outside mirrors, and many more. 


The Brio is a fancy vehicle, and it appeals to a niche of people. Some of its strengths include a distinct look, stylish interiors and some good comfort and entertainment features. It handles well, and the engine is just perfect for a city drive. On the downside, the lack of space, the below-par speed capacity and the lack of features in the lower trims might put off people. This vehicle would suit those looking for a normal city car with a stylish and modern aura. On the other hand, if you're someone who needs a strong and face model with a more masculine demeanor, then it's best to skip this car and go for something else.
