Indonesian automotive enthusiasts must have heard about the news of the arrival of the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition. PT. Honda Prospect Motor itself has officially released the price of the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition.
It is known that the price of the variant which is called the sportiest of all the Honda Brio variants will be marketed starting from IDR 185.5 million for the variant with manual transmission, and IDR 200.2 million for the variant with CVT transmission. If we compare it to the standard Honda Brio RS that is already on the market, this car is indeed more expensive around Rp. 7 million because it gets an additional aero kit on the car.
Honda itself presents the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition as a variant that targets young consumers who want to be different. For this reason, in this special edition car, there are several new accessories embedded in the Honda Brio RS.
Then what are the new accessories embedded in the Honda Brio RS Urbanite? And how is the engine performance? Let’s find out more information below.
Overview of the Honda Brio
The Honda Brio is a car model from Honda that is deliberately presented to meet the demands of consumers who need vehicles to be used in urban areas and used as daily cars. Honda Brio has a compact design, but attractive, and has high fuel efficiency. No wonder then we see that there are many Honda Brio cars passing by in urban areas.
Not only has an attractive design and high fuel efficiency, the Honda Brio is also popular and much-loved thanks to its affordable spare part prices. Not only that, the price of used cars also tends to be high so that the value of the car does not go down quickly.
There are two generations of Honda Brio in Indonesia. The two generations of the Honda Brio also have differences that can be said to be quite significant. This difference is also not only in the exterior, but also in the interior of the Honda Brio.
This Honda Brio was originally made with a subcompact hatchback model. This car was also initially only produced in India and Thailand. Honda Brio was officially launched in India and Thailand in 2011.
Then a year later, to be precise in 2012, PT. Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) as Honda’s official APM in Indonesia brought the Honda Brio to be marketed in the country. In Indonesia, there are several variants of the Honda Brio that are being marketed, namely the Honda Brio 1.2L A / T, the Honda Brio RS, and the Honda Brio Satya which are LCGC cars.
Thanks to the excellent response of the Indonesian people to the Honda Brio line-up, Honda began assembling the Honda Brio locally starting in 2013, or one year after its launch in Indonesia.
For those who don’t know, the name Honda Brio itself has a unique meaning. The word “Brio” comes from Italian which means “cheerful”. By using this name, Honda hopes that consumers who use the Honda Brio will always be cheerful and excited.
Differences Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition from other variants
Honda itself admitted that one of the main objectives of the launch of the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition was due to considerable consumer demand. Honda also decided to launch this special edition Honda Brio RS with a much sportier design. This car is designed in such a way as to match the style and desires of the millennials, which are the main target market for the current Honda Brio.
Then what is the difference between the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition and the standard type? We’ll get to the exterior material first. Honda gives a new design to the front under spoiler and rear under spoiler which is equipped with a new diffuser. This makes the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition not only sporty, but also aggressive.
Not only that, the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition is also more attractive thanks to the use of black side under spoilers and black side door mirrors complete with LED turning signals. In addition, the use of black door handles also makes this car look more masculine.
The most striking difference in the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition that we can see is the bodykit it carries. Not only that, the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition also offers two charming color choices, namely Phoenix Orange Pearl and Carnival Yellow.
Now we turn to the interior. In the interior, there is no significant difference from the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition with the standard Honda Brio RS. The interior of this car still uses the same base as the Honda Brio RS, with a predominance of black and a few orange accents.
To support the comfort of its passengers, this car is also equipped with adjustable headrests on all seats. Then for its own entertainment features, the head unit used in the Honda Brio RS Urbanite Edition is still the same as that used in the standard version. This car relies on a head unit with an AM / FM radio player, CD / DVD Player, and connectivity features such as Bluetooth, AUX-IN, and USB Port.
