Honda Brio Ride and Handling
Where this little Honda really, really impresses is in the ride and handling department. With its absolutely brilliantly damped suspension, driving over bumps, potholes and undulations is something you would barely notice. The only place where the Brio's engine shows its lower state of tune is in its top speed. With the torque dropping off sharply after its peak at 4,600rpm, the Brio runs out of steam after 142km/h when going for a top speed run. But when in the mood, the Brio’s the one to choose. With its willing top-end performance, confidence-inspiring brake pedal and eagerness to tackle corners, the Brio feels a special little car.
The Honda Brio rides on MacPherson struts up front and an H shaped torsion beam at the rear. The ride quality isn’t as good as the i20 and some road imperfections filter into the cabin. The car is very stable in high speed. The steering is impressive on its performance. The Brio handles bad roads quite effectively. You can push the Brio to its limits but it is still going to retain its confidence, poise and balance.
