A good upper middle class family car
Pros : Good looks, nice fuel efficiency, low turning radius and very good at handling
Cons : High price and less spacious interiors
I took test drive of Honda’s Brio recently and came out with a satisfied experience. I have always been a great fan of Honda for the same quality standards they ensure in all of their vehicles around the globe and if they are coming up with something it should be stunning. At the first glance Brio is nothing less than an adoring Japanese beauty bejeweled with mast looks and style however rear looks slightly different but that is Honda believes in, continuous changes and innovation and this is one aspect that keeps them always ahead of the curve.
Car is powered by 1198cc engine capable to generate 88 PS of power at 6000 rpm of torque. It’s a great experience driving such a powerful vehicle. Pickup is quick like an athlete. Tyres are broad and provides good grip over the road. It a ride designed for good roads as car is very low and touches the ground whenever hits a big hole or a slightly steep speed braker. Honda has priced it pretty aggressively and it really faces stiff competition from Hyundai and Maruti which are the leading market drivers in this category.
I like the interiors; they are refreshing and pleasing to the senses. Upholstery used is of the finest quality and seats are very soft and comfortable however car lacks in space and especially fat people will found themselves trapped in the rear compartment and boot space is also very small. A/C works stunning and you will be away from heat till the time you are inside. Car provides the same driving experience like that of City or Jazz. It’s a nice lucrative ride but much high on pocket.
