    Powertrain performance


    The engine in question here is part of Honda’s L-series of engines. This is the same engine family that the Honda Jazz, City, and Civic RS take their motors from. The engine that can be found in the Brio is an L12 1.2L SOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 89 hp and 110 Nm of torque. The engine sends the power through either a five-speed manual or an Earth Dreams CVT to the front wheels of the car.


    For the driving transmission, the specifications on the Honda Brio are divided into two variants, namely the Brio which adheres to a 5-speed manual transmission or CVT with Earth Dreams Technology.


    Honda is using the G-CON body in the newest Brio, which ensures safety and performance. The small hatchback gets a slightly longer wheelbase which allows for more stability and space. Like its subcompact brothers, the Brio has MacPherson struts in the front and complemented by a torsion beam in the rear. This car offers good stability and handling experience, further aided by an electric power steering (EPS). Combine the comfortable seats inside the cabin along with a suspension setup that incorporates MacPherson Strut with Stabilizer at the front and Torsion Beam at the rear, and you get a smooth ride.

    Fuel consumption

    Unlike the previous-gen Honda Brio that housed a 1.3-litre gasoline engine, the newest iteration of the hatchback is powered by a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol-fed engine that churns out 90 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 110 Nm at 4,800 revs. As far as the transmission options are concerned, all but the base variant of the Honda Brio feature Honda’s Earth Dreams technology CVT.
