Brio

VW would launch a small car in India in future.  However, Honda, ahead of VW, has already taken that bold step.  The new small car of Honda is known as Brio.

Variants

Brio is available in four variants – E MT, S MT, S (O) MT, V MT. 

Basic features

All the variants have the basic features such as Air conditioners, power windows and electric power steering. This is good strategy from Honda because all most all the car manufactures in India do not have power window or power steering feature in their base variant.  But, you can enjoy these features even in the base variant of Honda Brio.  All variants are petrol driven with 5 manual gears.  Petrol capacity for all the variants is 35 liters.

Safety features

All the variants have the central locking and driver seat belt reminder feature.

Anti – lock braking system and Air bags (for both driver and passenger) is available only in the top two variants - S (O) MT, V MT.

 Competitors

 Honda Brio can give a tough fight to the following cars-

  1. Hyundai i10;
  2. Skoda Fabia;
  3. Maruti Suzuki Swift; and
  4. Fiat Punto.

 The verdict

 Honda has definitely made a bold entry in the Indian small car segment.  However, Honda Brio is not available in diesel engine and none of the variants have an automatic gear system. The Indian consumers would definitely be satisfied with the varieties of features given by Honda Brio in all its variants.  But, Honda scores only good and could have scored excellent if there was a diesel engine variant and a variant with automatic gear system. 

Honda has lanuched a small car in India in the form of Brio. It is expected that VW would follow Honda.
