Looking a fun, fuel-efficient city runabout? Then check out Honda’s small hatchback, which has just been given a facelift.

Now in its second generation, the Honda Brio has been further enhanced to meet the diverse needs of style-conscious, comfort-seeking, and performance-oriented first-time or alternative car buyers.

It’s available in the following variants:

  • Honda Brio 1.2 RS Black Top CVT: P863,000
  • Honda Brio 1.2 RS CVT: P853,000
  • Honda Brio 1.2 V CVT: P827,000
  • Honda Brio 1.2 S MT: P735,000

The new Brio sports a new grille, with the range-topping RS getting all-LED headlights, fog lights, and daytime running lights. Meanwhile, the V and S variants get halogen headlights.

It sits on updated 14-inch alloy wheels (V), 14-inch steel with cover wheels (S), and 15-inch RS Design alloy wheels (RS). 

Inside, Honda’s A-segment hatchback now features black fabric seats with red (RS) or gray (V and S) accents and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system across all variants. Connectivity for the RS Black Top, RS, and V variants is easy with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB port, AM/FM, and Android smartphone mirroring. The RS gets a 6-speaker audio setup, while the V and S get a 4-speaker one.

The new Brio retains the 1.2-liter 4-cylinder SOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 88hp and 110Nm of torque. It’s mated to either a CVT or a 5-speed manual transmission.

In terms of safety, the new hatch is equipped with Honda’s G-CON technology, which enhances impact absorption for added protection of passengers in the event of a collision. All variants get driver and front passenger airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
