Great to see a post about such a wonderful car. I had zeroed on the Brio when I was looking for my first car in 2014. I knew that a lot of my driving would include long distance drives, so, the boot space turned to be the deal breaker.
Still a great car for what it offered at that time. One of my relatives owns a Brio and I never miss a chance to get my hands on its wheels .

Yes. The AC takes up a while to cool up especially after parking under the sun. Other than that, no problem.
To mitigate this , you can go ahead and install transparent Sun films inside the car.
While these films are not strictly legal per the supreme court guidelines, I am personally not worried as they are not tinted and I am not using my vehicle for Anti-social activities anyway.

I've installed the Garware ice cool films on both the front and back windshield and also on all the four side windows.

Fantastic review. All the positives are very precisely penned down.

Brio was a overall package be it brand image, looks(subjective ofcourse), frugal engine, VFM, yet it remains a mystery to me why it never sold well.

if you look at kerala, rival eon is fairly popular here & still loved for its compact-easy to drive nature.. which is exactly brio does a way lot better and more. Besides people here have a lot more diverse taste in cars yet Brio is somewhat rarely seen.
Wish you lot more miles ahead, may it always love you back

But why?
With booming number of new Compact SUVs, Pseudo SUVs, Our little car really gets faded away from everyoneís eyes.
Not just now, back in 2011-12 it wasnít really a popular car either.
It is powered by 1.2 L engine producing 88 BHP.

Nice detailed review. I also have a 2015 Brio VX that is our go to city car. I agree with most of the comments on interior, space and utilities. I am yet to find a better city car than Brio. Parking this is as easy as parking a bike! But I'm always surprised to hear people classify Brio as quick.

The main thing I hate about it is that until 1500 rpms it has zero pull. If you r driving up a hill, God save you if you don't up shift all the way to 1st. I've found driving full load in Honda City is better than alone in Brio. So many good reviews of its acceleration makes me wonder whether it is an issue with my car.

Hi Vasanth,

Congratulations for completing 6 years with the reliable Brio. On the 17th of April,21, I too got a pre owned Brio (thank you GTO for the pre owned cars thread) , 2013 manufactured. I echo each thought of yours especially on the AC performance. As for performance you do need to work the gearbox to get the pull but since the gear lever is a joy to operate, I don't mind that.
Attaching a picture, I have the white colour too.

Congratulations and welcome to Honda family. Brio is a brilliant car. Wish you tons of miles and smile. Keep revving. Drive safe.
