Brio Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Brio

Compared to the previous generation model, the new generation Honda Brio looks much more aggressive and modern, The front fascia with sleeker headlamps and grille give it a much wider stance. At the same time, the revised rear profile of the car looks much more conventional and proportionate as compared to the model it has replaced.

Since the car has grown in dimensions, the new Honda Brio has increased levels of space on the inside. The new model of the Honda Brio addresses the issue of limited legroom which was present in the previous generation model, thanks to the enhanced wheelbase.

The new Honda Brio still continues to be powered by the same 1.2- litre I-VTEC petrol engine, which is a good thing, considering how well refined and energetic this engine feels while on the move.

Things We Dont Like in Brio

While the new Honda Brio looks definitely larger and more spacious on the inside, the boot space still feels cramped. It still falls short on space as compared to the competition.

The new Honda Brio lacks the sportiness of the exterior design in its interior cabin. The driver’s cockpit comprising of the steering wheel and instrument console looks too simple and a tad too basic for a modern hatchback of its category.

Apart from the dashboard design, the limited list of comfort and convenience features too make the Honda Brio feel a bit basic and much entry-level. The touchscreen infotainment system feels basic, and apart from automatic climate control, there is no other feature which makes the interior cabin of the Honda Brio feel special.

Overview

The Brio is the smallest and the most affordable Honda product that you can buy in the Philippines right now. Launched in 2014, the Brio quickly charmed everyone with its cute looks and spacious interior (for a hatchback). However, people slowly lost interest in this car as it became outdated and new cars from other brands became available. While Honda was a bit late to notice the faded charm of Brio, it eventually did take note and launched the all-new 2019 Brio in the country.

The new model is definitely a step up from the outgoing one as it looks better, offers more space on the inside, and houses a powerful engine. The 2019 Brio is available in 4 variants at an introductory price of Php 585,000 for the base model and Php 732,000 for the range-topping RS Black Top model.

Interior & Features

Just like the outside, things are new on the inside too. Honda has replaced a number of round elements like the AC vents with angular units to match the maturity of the exterior of the new Brio. And this theme does work pretty well. The overall black theme of the cabin is pretty sporty too. Honda has added a silver/orange lining to remove the monotony. the color of the lining depends on the model you choose.

The 3-spoke steering wheel comes with audio controls mounted on it. Behind the steering wheel is a simple and conventional instrument cluster. What’s new is the 7-inch touch screen infotainment system that supports Bluetooth and USB connectivity. However, this feature is limited to the higher end models. The base model, on the other hand, gets a single-DIN stereo system only. The new 2019 Honda Brio is a bit bigger than its predecessor which means that there is a bit more space on the inside and even the boot space has been slightly increased.

Exterior

The 2019 Honda Brio is clearly a major upgrade in terms of exterior design and styling when compared to the outgoing model. Honda has done a good job in making sure that the new car doesn’t go unnoticed in the Filipino streets. The front end gets a pair of large headlamps that are joined together by Honda’s signature thick chrome grille. This whole combination looks perfect on the Brio. In fact, it looks much better than the previous model.

The headlamps are multi-reflector halogen units and are accompanied by LED parking light guides. If you opt for the RS model, then the chrome grille is replaced by a black-out one and an RS badge also makes its way to the grille. The stock 14-inch alloys are upgraded to 15-inch RS design wheels and you can even have a black roof in the range-topping model, i.e., RS Black Top. Things just get sportier in the RS models, don’t they?

The rear end of the new 2019 Brio offers beautiful taillights and a sporty roof-mounted rear spoiler. The rear bumper is quite sporty too and does help in improving the looks of the car. To sum it up, the new Brio looks amazing.

Ride & Handling

The suspension setup on the new Brio comprises of MacPherson Strut with Stabilizer at the front and Torsion Beam at the rear. Combine this with 185 / 55 R15 size tyres and a curb weight of just 993 kg, and you get the new Brio that handles quite well. Of course, it isn’t meant to be driven over enthusiastically as it’s not built to provide you with any sort of thrills. Drive it gently and it’s not going to disappoint you at all. Also, because of its compact dimensions, driving it on crowded streets becomes easier.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Honda has not just updated the exterior and interior of the new Brio but it has also updated the mechanical bits. The new model comes with a new 1.2-litre engine which replaces the old 1.3-litre unit. The new engine has been tuned to produce a max power of 90 PS at 6000 rpm and 110 Nm of peak torque at 4800 rpm.

All the variants of the new Brio come with this engine only. While the base model comes with a manual gearbox, the rest of the models are equipped with Honda’s Earth Dreams technology CVT unit. Performance wise, the new engine is supposedly more refined, smooth, and has been fine-tuned with the transmission to give an optimal balance of performance and fuel economy.

Braking & Safety

The new 2019 Honda Brio comes with disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. The braking setup on the hatchback offers decent performance. The braking distance is further reduced thanks to the ABS that is available as standard across the model lineup. The light weight of the car further helps the brakes to bring it to a halt.

As far as the safety equipment is concerned, only the dual front airbags and ABS are the major features. We would have definitely liked Honda to have included more safety features.

Verdict

The new 2019 Honda Brio is certainly a better car than its predecessor. It looks good and offers more space along with a better interior. It is one of the best hatchbacks in the country that one can buy. Yes, there are a few areas which need improvement but it’s alright considering the price of the new car. The 2019 Brio starts at a price of Php 585,000 for the base model and to own the range-topping RS Black Top variant, you’ll need to shell out Php 732,000.
