Honda Brio Amaze

For a sedan having its length under four meters, the Honda Brio Amaze showcases impressive levels of cabin space, which is quite comparable to a premium hatchback of its class. The Brio Amaze’s main strength lies in its class-leading rear seat space as well as boot space, with the latter outclassing that of a couple of sedans from one segment above.

The i-VTEC technology from Honda has always been revered for its rev-happy nature, and thankfully, the Brio Amaze too carries the same genes. Though the Brio Amaze is powered by a rather small 1.2-litre four-cylinder motor from the Jazz, the linear power delivery has some sort of excitement which usually the family-oriented cars in its price range happen to miss out on.

Honda City

The Honda City still continues to be the benchmark in its category when it comes to impeccable in cabin space and comfort. The rear cabin of the Honda City continues to offer best in class legroom and knee room, with sufficient under-thigh support and headroom, making it one of the most comfortable cabins in entry-level sedan category. 

Despite being almost ten years old in terms of basic engineering, the 1.5-litre petrol engine of the Honda City continues to be one of the most refined and rev-happy engines to be ever made in the entry-level space. The engine has got remarkable levels of refinement and revs happily without feeling sluggish in the entire rev range.

The current generation Honda City has been blessed with all the top-class comfort and convenience features which are usually associated with sedans of one segment above it. The list of features includes electric sunroof, full LED headlamps, leather upholstery, curtain airbags, and push-button start-stop system, which not only uplift the in-cabin ambience of the Honda City but also justify its premium tag too.

Honda Brio Amaze

Sub-four meter sedans and SUVs are the latest in-thing in the automobile industry, so the vehicles falling under this segment need to be fresh till date. The Brio Amaze, sadly, looks a decade old when viewed from the outside. Considering the facts that Honda has updated the Brio (the hatchback on which it is based), as well as the second generation Honda Amaze already on sale in some of the international markets, the Brio Amaze sold here in the Philippines feels outdated.

While the Brio Amaze feels very spacious and comfortable on the inside, the lacklustre and too sober cabin layout and design rob the overall feel. The cabin misses out on a number of features, while at the same time, the dashboard’s design too feels dated.

Honda City

While the arrow shot design complements the aerodynamic profile of the Honda City, the overall silhouette of the car along with the basic design has started to show its age. The overall basic design is in existence for almost half a decade without much bigger changes. While the inclusion of features like LED headlamps and machined alloy wheels did try to uplift the design of the car, the Honda City’s side profile and front and rear design remained more or less unchanged in all these years.

Despite the presence of many feel-good features, the overall dashboard design of the Honda City now feels too sober and dated in front of the cabins of other sedans in its space. Some of the switches in the cabin too need an upgrade in terms of quality.
