The second-generation Honda Brio has been in the Philippine market for over a year now, but after months of staying indoors due to the community quarantine, it was refreshing to find a canary yellow test unit on my doorstep. With transport options still rather limited in Metro Manila, this snappy little hatchback seems just the thing for zipping around for those quick grocery runs, or for safely commuting to work.
It’s no secret that we love the new Honda Civic Type R around these parts, but the current Civic sure has grown big. What we need is a return to basics, with go-fast bits on a small, chuckable car. We need the Small RS Concept.
