the rear, we could see an ornament with body color at the rear window who acts as a rear boot door of the car. At the middle of the ornament, there also a chrome accent, Brio emblem, and V-TEC emblem who are moved to this ornament.

My brio S mt has run 2750 kms so far and 45 days after purchase , wheel bearing has gone kaput..
I was hearing loud roar noise around 80 to 90 kmph . Checked on exhaust , it was clear and the service center centered it on wheel bearing failure on front left side. Will be changed under warranty

Makes sense. I have also heard talk about the tailgate having a metal surround, and being taller! If a 'D' is to be shoehorned in then a slightly bigger bonnet cavity is called for.

The rear appears cluttered and a step back from the clean looks of the current model. What the brio needs are adjustable rear headrests (at least in the top spec) or at a minimum increase in the height of the fixed headrests (they are too low for even a 5 feet adult). The current back seat is otherwise a safety hazard.

Yes, as a owner of Brio, can say that rear seat is a safety hazard for taller people. It desperately needs extendable headrests. And the current version's rear looks better (and unique) in my opinion. If anything, they could have just changed the rectangular shape of the number plate area to something trapezoidal (Like Polo facelift)

Next-gen Honda Brio to debut in 2017 - Could do away with the BRIO name

Quote:
Honda to get rid of quirky styling seen on current Brio; could give upcoming model a new name.
Honda has started work on the replacement for its current Brio hatchback.
Quote:
It is likely to lose out on the quirky rear styling and glass hatch seen on the current car, and will get a conventional tailgate instead. This means, the new Brio will be based on the outgoing car’s underpinnings but will get an all-new bodyshell and interiors.
Quote:
Honda will most likely add a diesel engine as well, which could be a 1.1-litre, three-cylinder version of the current i-DTEC family

Yes it does. I mentioned it in my review. Annoying, no?

Hi people. I have some news.


This piece is missing in my car. Was it deleted or omitted in the production line in the later models? Or is it just plain missing in my car?!!?!!?

And it looks like Honda has shifted to engineering plastic based manifold from their cast aluminium manifold.

Some discussion on missing plastic scoop from about two years back. Mine is 2013 and its missing in it too. Maybe optimization and various tweaks done on later models.

Default Re: Honda Brio : Test Drive & Review

Hello guys i am having some issues with my Brio SMT(O) 2012 model. Since the day of purchase I am having this issue. When my vehicle goes over a pothole at say around 30 to 40Kmph there is big Thud noise from the rear right wheel assembly. The same is not there in rear left or any other wheel assembly. I have been reporting this issue to Whitefield Honda but they haven't been able to diagnose the issue. Once they replaced the entire suspension assembly under warranty which has not solved the issue. Has anybody faced similar issues? Any pointers please?

Also which is the best Honda Service centre in Bangalore? Mine is always serviced at Whitefield Honda.

It was basically to direct cooler air from the outside of the car to the air intake. The engine bay can get very hot. Seems to be a victim of cost-cutting .

My Feb, 2013 VMT has this air intake scoop and also a black linen sheet next to it on the inside surface of bonnet lid (to cut vibration/reduce heat loss?)

My May 2012 Brio has the air intake scoop and the under-bonnet insulation. Seems like it has been deleted in recent models as a cost cutting measure.
