Many of you are already waiting for the soon-to-be-launched mini-sized twin models of Honda Cars Philippines: the Brio mini hatchback and the Brio Amaze mini sedan. We've already given you a preview or first impressions from our recent short driving experience with the two, and we've also shared with you the variants for both models.
To quote from our previous story:
The Brio will have two grades: a top one and a mid-level one. Both these Brio grades will be available with a five-speed automatic and a five-speed manual transmission.
The Brio Amaze, on the other hand, will have three grades: top, mid-level and base. The top grade will be offered with both automatic and manual transmissions; the mid-level grade will only have an automatic transmission; and the base grade will be equipped with a manual transmission.
Both the Brio and the Brio Amaze will be equipped with the same 1.3-liter i-VTEC gasoline powerplant from the second-generation Jazz.
So now the question: How much will these cute cars sell for?
The official prices have not been finalized as you read this, but a source inside Honda has shared with us the provisional price range for both cars: P600,000 to P700,000 for the Brio, and P650,000 to P750,000 for the Brio Amaze. Yep, the sedan will cost some P50,000 more than the hatchback.
Knowing these ballpark figures now, do you think the Brio and the Brio Amaze will sell like hotcakes?
