The Honda Brio was a compact Jazz look-alike that was first launched in 2011. The Brio’s design was originally intended for the developing markets in Thailand and India. Both countries are the first ones to manufacture the Brio. This eventually led the Brio to earn a preview as the New Small Concept.

In Thailand, Honda made the Brio available in 2011 in response to a government-funded eco-car program. While in India, the Brio was produced by Honda's subsidiary company, known as HCIL or Honda Cars India Ltd. The manufacturing process took place in its facilities in Greater Noida. Most of the parts used to make the Brio were bought from Indian suppliers.

As for the Philippines, the first time that the Brio made a touchdown was sometime in 2014. Honda Cars Philippines or also known as HCPI, was expected to release one of the cutest compact hatchbacks from the Japanese manufacturer September that year.

The brand certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact, the first Brios were equipped with a decent 1.3L i-VTEC engine. This provided the Brio with 98 horsepower and 128 Nm.


The company already released a teaser about the new Honda Brio being released into the Philippines. What made it even better was that they'd previously released the price, starting at Php 650,000.

If we were to consider the lineup created by the HCPI, their price might be for the base S manual transmission variety. The new 2019 Honda Brio is said to follow the same styling format as the Jazz, Mobilio, BR-V, and City.

The Brio has evolved from the first time it was introduced to the Philippine market. Some changes include the sharper-looking fascia, and an edgier grill -making the updated hatchback sportier.

Despite it's small size, the Honda Brio is a very sporty looking and comfortable city car


The Brio is Honda’s entry to the city car category. The updated Brio had an entirely different look for the 2019 update. Its previous cute styling was replaced with a sportier and sharp-looking design. At the front, it has a distinct resemblance to another Honda classic, the Honda Mobilio.

The Brio now has slimmer headlights and a way thicker-looking bumper frontage. There was also a more noticeable change at the Brio’s rear end. The former’s last generation had hefty chrome taillights and a full-glass tailgate. For the current update, it was switched with a simpler, more predictable looking rear end. Another feature of the new-gen is its innovative design of the cargo’s liftover height.


The interior of the updated Honda Brio was a significant leap. Instead of the rounded styling, the 2019 update now has an edgier look.

The RS trim comes with an orange interior that's pleasing to the eye. However, the downside is that this color doesn't exactly look good on the Brio's other variants like the Carnival Yellow. Most of the materials that make up the interior is plastic. But for that price range, we shouldn’t really expect much. The details on the plastic surfaces still look nice and are elegant to the touch.

Although the hatchback's small design doesn’t make it the most spacious car ever, Honda decided to have ample legroom and headroom to compensate for it. Also, the seats are quite comfortable.

Technology & Safety Features

The 2019 Brio now has a promising infotainment system. The steering wheel comes mounted with audio controls. Other features also include Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for iPod connection.

The vehicle also has six speakers, a speed-sensing door lock, and an automatic power-folding mirror.

But the Brio has its downsides as well. For example, Honda didn’t seem to have forgotten to put a volume knob for the infotainment system. That means you’ll have to get used to adjusting the volume via the touchscreen system.

Though it does come with a six speaker-music system, the music quality can be hard to tolerate if you are an audiophile.

As for safety features, the 2019 Brio does have airbags for the driver and front passenger. The ABS and electronic brake distribution also does an excellent job of preventing road accidents.

Platform & Chassis

In terms of chassis, the 2019 Brio had an increase in length where it’s now 200 millimeters longer than the previous Brio. This new look actually made the Brio look better and less awkward.

The only thing that hasn’t changed is the car’s front doors. However, the updated Brio does share the same weight and width with its earlier model. The Mobilio headlights are also noticeable because they give a visual illusion that the front is wider.

There is also a steel hatch at the back for a more elegant touch. There is also a new RS variety that’s intended to be a way better version of the small and average hatchback.

Engine & Drivetrain

Honda decided to take a gamble and decided to replace the standard 1.3-liter with a 1.2-liter engine instead. The new engine exerts an extra ten horsepower assisted by a 17 Nm increase in torque, giving the new Brio 89 horsepower and 110 Newton meters of torque. This makes the new Brio 22 kg heavier than its predecessor.

Also, Honda decided to chop a great deal of numbers from the performance to satisfy the need for an affordability price. It also operates quite smoothly because they replaced the previous gen’s automatic transmission to a CVT. This resulted in a significant improvement in the Brio’s fuel efficiency.
