Honda Brio - Test Drive

When my friends decided on buying new cars few months ago, one of the better ways we spent our weekends were by test driving every car we came across right from a Maruthi Alto to a BMW :) :)

Among the series of Test drives over the month, the latest that got ticked off in our been there, drove that list is the Honda Brio.

Brio has always been the cute little car that has been zipping across the city for couple of months now. To me, its one of the best option if you are looking to buy a small hatch back petrol variant along with I10 and the new Maruthi swift.

However, I would rate Brio higher when it comes to maneuverability, the look and feel of the car and the interior space for a car of its size.

The only draw back that I found of the car during the time we spent driving it was the rough gear shifting, else the car was a dream on wheels :) totally enjoyed the drive !!

It's refreshing to see women blogging on cars.:-) But you know,I read some comparisons of Brio with other hatchbacks.And they seem to conclude,fuel economy wise,Brio kinda lags behind.What do you think about that?

Thank you :) I love to write car reviews as well, so have just started with it.

I don't yet know the actual mileage Brio gives, as per what I heard its about 13 to 14 Km/l which is not too good for a car of its size.

But the driving comfort is awesome !
