The new Honda Brio will certainly surprise customers of a minicompact car with superior and exciting but smooth performance.
The heart of Honda Brio is the 1.2-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine features single-valve idling with high-expansion ratio valve timing, which generates the maximum power of 66Kw (89Hp) at 6,000rpm and maximum toque of 110Nm at 4,800rp, offering strong and durable performance and top-class fuel consumption. By making cam chain slender, enhancing chain tensioner and auxiliary belt auto-tensioner, honing plateau, engine friction significantly reduces. Besides, by integrating the exhaust manifold with the cylinder heads, and placed the catalytic converter directly beneath the exhaust manifold to enhance combustion chamber cooling and, combustion chamber knock-resistance, along with a high-tumbler flow intake port, emission is reduced, thereby improving fuel efficiency.

Featuring Honda’s original i-VTEC technology, Honda Brio’s engine has two intake and two exhaust valves per cylinder. In the low rpm range, the engine idles one intake valve per cylinder, effecting rapid combustion of the air-fuel mixture for enhanced fuel economy. In the mid to high rpm range, valve idling ceases for smooth, satisfying acceleration.

Using the most suitable shape and optimized thickness for each application helps make the body even more lightweight and rigid. Using high-rigidity right and left damper structures, high-rigidity right and left arm attachment points, high-rigidity rear compliance parts, and high-rigidity tailgate parts enhances the stiffness of the body structure.

Besides, extending the wheelbase and trunk space improves body rigidity and enhances stable performance, bringing the driver confident and certain feeling. Moreover, the body parts also demonstrate superior sound insulation, reducing the noise from the road surface to the inside cabin, giving passengers a quiet, relaxed space.

  1. OPTIMAL SAFETY

G-CON technology was developed to protect the passengers in car by controlling gravity, so that when a collision occurs, the body and chassis will absorb the impact force. The car bodies achieved demanding testing at Honda's Real World Crash Test facility, withstanding a fixed barrier full frontal collision at 55 km/h and a frontal offset collision at 64 km/h.

Moreover, Honda Brio is proud to receive a 4-star ASEAN NCAP certificate for safety features and side collision safety. Accordingly, the model is equipped with driver’s i-SRS airbag system, passenger’s seat SRS airbag system, driver’s seat belt reminder, ABS and pretensioner ELR seat belt. The model achieved the 50 km/h rear moving barrier crash test while the occupant space and fuel tank were protected.
