The all-new Honda Brio 2019 features a funkier, more mature and aggressive look.
In the hectic ongoing car event - Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2018 (GIIAS 2018), the second-generation Honda Brio 2019 has officially been exposed to view. At first sight, it looks true to the Honda Small RS Concept which was disclosed a couple of months ago at the 2018 IIMS.

For starters, the all-new styling design has brought this entry-level product of Honda with global models. In fact, the new Brio is closely akin to the Honda Amaze 2018, especially in the upright front grille and headlamps area. Meanwhile, features like front bumper, ORVMs, front doors, door handles, side crease line as well as black plastic applique in the A-pillars, apparently, come from the previous Brio.

However, more conventional and mature rear design tells us that this Brio is larger than its predecessor indeed. There, a metal tailgate takes place of the all-glass one and the Ford Figo-inspired taillight clusters make the hatch look wider.

Being put on view at GIIAS 2018 are the standard Honda Brio Satya and the RS. The latter is a sportier trim which is fitted with side skirts, a faux diffuser and bewitching diamond-cut alloys.

Unlike the PH-spec Honda Brio which runs a 1.3L engine, this next-gen Honda Brio 2019 in Indonesia is armed with the existing 1.2L i-VTEC petrol unit with 90 PS and 100 Nm of torque, working in tandem with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT.

Honda Brio

The Honda Brio 2021-2022 is the Japanese automaker's entry to the local hatchback segment alongside the newly-introduced Honda City hatchback. It is considered to be the small hatchback option, while the new City hatchback is on the more premium option of the brand. In consideration of its price points ranging from PHP 601,000 to PHP 730,000, the small hatchback is regarded as the entry-level vehicle of the Japanese carmaker. It is available in three variants, including a Black Top option for the top-of-the-line RS variant. Under the hood, a 1.2-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine is standard across the range, delivering 89 hp and 110 Nm of torque. Depending on the variant, the engine can be paired to either a 5-speed manual or an Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Brio Philippines offers dimensions that span 3,815 mm in length, 1,680 mm in width, and 1,485 mm in height. Rivals in the hatchback segment include the Toyota Wigo, Kia Picanto, and Suzuki Swift.

In Thailand, Honda first introduced the Brio in 2011 in response to a government-funded eco-car program. While in India, the small hatchback was produced by Honda's subsidiary company known as Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL). The manufacturing process took place in its facilities in Greater Noida. Most of the parts used to make the model were brough from Indian suppliers. And in 2014, HCPI debuted the Honda Brio in the local market which provided Filipino car buyers with an affordable and sporty-looking hatchback. The PH-spec model is currently on its second-generation version and consists of the base S variant, mid-spec V variant, and top-of-the-line RS variant.
