Honda Brio New Small Car Launch in India 2012

The much awaited Honda Small car is now officially launched as 'Honda Brio' in India and priced between 3.95 and 5 lakhs. So far, this is the cheapest car available in India from Honda. The design is giving high importance to the comfort and luxury of the consumer. With Honda Small car, they have entered a new market segment in India for the first time. The Honda Brio is powered by the same model of 1098 cc , four cylinder engine used in Honda Jazz. Additionally, it weights 70 Kilograms lesser than the Honda Jazz. This gives additional more than enough engine power to the Brio. Honda Brio is undoubtedly one of the best small cars in India for 2012-2013.

The Design and Interior

Although, Brio comes classified as a small car, it really doesn't look like one. They've made the front seats more spacious by cutting short the space on backseats. Even a person 6ft tall can rest his legs comfortably in the front seat. The air indicators resemble that of fighter planes.

Testers Notice

To keep the price low Honda has made some compromises with Brio.

  • No adjustable head rest.
  • No automatic AC.
  • The stereo system is simple with USB drive (no CD supported)
  • Fog lamps are only available in higher model. It comes integrated and is difficult to add it later after purchasing the initial model.

The attractive features are the good looks, spacious and well finished interiors itself. Thin steering, can circle a Brio with one finger. The turning radius is low. The round gear knob is very comfortable to handle.
