Honda PH's Brio, BR-V Post Stellar Figures in Eco-Run
Japanese carmaker Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), expressed contentment over the results of its recently concluded Fuel Economy Run. In partnership with Automobile Association Philippines (AAP), the company-sponsored run fielded two of its core vehicles – the all-new Honda Brio 1.2 V CVT and the new Honda BR-V 1.5 S CVT. After covering 231.45 kilometers through highway night driving, the Brio achieved a fuel mileage of 24.39 kilometers per liter, and the BR-V, 22.58 kilometers per liter. The two vehicles were tested under realistic driving conditions and were driven at speed of 60-80kph at 1,500 to 2,000 rpm and the aircon set at 50-percent cool at Blower Fan Speed 1. The BR-V’s fuel consumption result proved remarkable given its power rating of 120ps. With this, the BR-V achieves the distinct position of being the most powerful in its class, yet with excellent fuel efficiency. Meanwhile, the Brio is expected to achieve great fuel efficiency given its small engine. But with class-leading space and legroom, overall superb drivability, and above-average power, the Honda Brio breaks the norms of typical small cars available in the market today. The Fuel Economy Run is an initiative of Honda Cars Philippines Inc., as supervised and certified by AAP with the objective of providing customers accurate and relevant information to aid in their car selection process. HCPI said that "by knowing the fuel rating of these vehicles achieved through realistic conditions, customers will be able to make informed and intelligent decision in their car purchase."
