This is more prominent when I am doing a spirited drive shifting fast and quick at a little higher rpms. Any one else faced this issue ? It is not a show-stopper but really robs the fun of shifting fast.

Are the revs rising when you change up or down a gear?
If it's happening when changing down a gear, it's because Honda has programmed the ECU to do the same to rev match and allow for smooth shifting.This quirk has been pointed out by few owners and in other Brio owner threads as well.

If the revs are rising when going up the gears, that's a concern. My guess is it's an issue with the clutch cable or plates. Best to get it checked at the service station.

Does anyone with a Honda Brio get 20+ kmpl on 100% highway with AC ON 100%?

OR in other words, what is the highway mileage that you get for your Honda Brio with AC ON?

You can with speeds between 60-80 with lighter foot on the accelerator. I have got 21 this way on the highways. I have got 12-16 as well on the highways with higher speeds and spirited driving.

We have a Brio AT and it provides 10 - 11 in city and around 15 on highways.
I have heard that MT delivers slightly better efficiency than AT.

Two years ago I replaced the brake lights with LED ones. No issues since. Make sure you do not get the el-cheapo ones (10/15 for Rs.xxxx). I paid about 25k on Amazon for Luyud for a pair.

You could probably eek out 20 or more if you kept your speeds in check, i.e. between 60-80 kmph.

I have done long highway drives 750 kms+, managing approx. 17-18 overall, but trying to keep speeds around 90, with bursts of 100 and above in between.
I have never used the car without AC, i.e. 100% AC on.

I recently got my Brio serviced at Carsmith (independent garage in Bangalore) and had posted about the experience in the multi-brand service thread.

They used ENI 5W40 full synthetic oil for the Brio. This was used for the last service. Just wanted to check if this Oil is good.
Also they used CeraTec and liqui Moly for engine flush, had tried it for this time not sure if it is worth using for Brio

Thanks for responding. I was looking for type of bulb as I was in UK back then and could source some OSRAM or Philips ones. Nevertheless, I got the info from Honda and I couldn't find anything suitable from these two majors.

According to a gaadiwaadi article, Honda may soon discontinue the Brio in India.

Quote:
Honda Brio To Be Discontinued Soon; New-Gen Launch Expected In 2020

Quote:
With bigger dimensions and modern exterior, the latest Honda Brio sold elsewhere could be a perfect fit for India and the Japanese manufacturer may decide to launch it in 2020. Going by the brandís recent strategy, it appears to be focussing on introducing premium products like CR-V and Civic instead of vying for big volume numbers in the entry-level space but the popular nameplate may still make a comeback after a hiatus.

I have never used the car without AC, i.e. 100% AC on.
Even I got 17 kmpl on my latest highway stint of around 200 kms, which had a bit of slow moving traffic, tolls etc as well; the AC was on 100% of the time. I kept my speeds around 80-100 for the most part with the RPM hovering around 2500-3000. The reading on the mid was quite close to what I calculated manually.

Honda doesn't seem to know what to do. I hope they're still serious about the Indian market. The new Amaze was a hit as it ticked most boxes. A well priced and well-equipped Brio will bring them more volumes (and help their brand image) than the ridiculously priced CR-V.

I'm sure the new Brio can compete with the Swift. With a better AT, the Brio can take away some units from the Grand i10 and Swift. I hope the boot is bigger and I don't have to cram my shopping bags inside.
