Brio owners are going to love this news. The cutest car in the Honda vehicle lineup also happens to be the most fuel-efficient. This is according to a recent fuel economy test conducted by Honda Cars Philippines, which also included several other models sold by the Japanese carmaker in our market.

Just how fuel-efficient was the Brio during the 221km run? The Brio 1.3 V Navi AT was able to squeeze out 31.92km/L in highway driving and 18.27km/L in city driving. The Brio Amaze 1.3 E MT, on the other hand, managed to eke out 33.99km/L on the highway and 20.37km/L in the city.

Also of note is how the City 1.5 E CVT managed to sip fuel at an efficient rate, with results of 31.03km/L in highway driving and 20.99km/L in city driving. The CVT transmission paired with the car's i-VTEC engine was developed under Honda's Earth Dreams technology.

Refueling, tire pressure and air-conditioning settings were closely monitored during the run by a representative from Automobile Association Philippines to ensure accurate and realistic results. Below is the complete table of Honda vehicles that participated in the test, as well as their corresponding fuel-mileage figures. Note that the table doesn't include the Civic, the Accord, the CR-Z, the Pilot and the Legend.

While it's truly commendable for a car company to announce the fuel-mileage figures of its vehicles, we find it somewhat difficult to believe that the CR-V 2.0 S AT could average 31.20km/L in highway driving and 17.97km/L in city driving without hypermiling tricks. What do you think of these numbers?
