Overall Brio is a very practical car, it has ample space for 5 passengers to sit and enough boot space for your regular use (We carry one medium bag for weekend getaways- and it can carry those). To be honest none of us need anything more than that for 99% of our travel time. The drive is extremely refined and quality of electronics, plastics and everything is same as the more premium models from Honda.

Great features:

Steering: the wheel is awesome, it never feels like too light or too heavy or irregular. It responds to speeds perfectly and gives you just the right amount of resistance at every speed.

Engine: The damn thing does not make any noise when idling, but floor the peddle and it will roar to propel you forward like in an airplane takeoff.

Design: the stance is very good and looks great in all colors

Speed: the car is very responsive even at higher speeds, better than what you would expect from others in the segment.

Mileage: I get a mileage of 15 kmpl from my 4 year old car in city driving.

Maintenance: I get my car serviced once in six months and the expenses are around 3 thousand rupees per service. I believe that is cheaper than even the market lead Maruti.

Service: Honda dealers are known for their courteous service, and my experience has been no different.

Not so great:

Pickup: the engine has been tuned to deliver mileage so pickup is a little low. You would need to manage gears well to get that rush for longer duration of time.

Boot: Boot is smaller than most cars in the segment but, I have never felt that shortcoming as I use the car for going to office and back most of the time and if I have to travel out station for long trips I hire a cab.

Interior Design: While the design is unique and provides great space, after sometime it starts looking dated, the cars these days are coming out with much better looking interiors so maybe that is one shortcoming.


Rear Seat: the rear seat has low back support so that leads to some discomfort to rear passengers,Honda could have done a much better job of the same.

Roof line: again in the rear the roof is very low at the sides, this may lead to some unfortunate tall passenger to hit the roof at high speed bumps.
