Will the Hyundai i10 or Honda Brio 2021 be a better choice for buyers in the sub-$20,000 pricing range?
A few brief comparisons based on pricing, interior, and exterior features, comfort, engine, and safety are provided in the article below to assist buyers in making an informed selection.
Honda Brio has a longer total length than its Korean competitor. Brio G seems somewhat better when put side by side.
The Hyundai i10 1.2AT, on the other hand, has a distinct advantage due to its short overall length and breadth combination, which allows for a compact and versatile design. In contrast, the wheelbase and total height are much longer than the competition, resulting in additional internal room and comfort.
Furthermore, the i10 1.2AT has significantly greater ground clearance than the Brio G, so it will be easier to "climb and wade through." With a narrow turning radius on the Brio G side, the car will also drive flexibly in congested metropolitan areas.
In general, the external equipment of the two rivals is rather similar, with both employing standard halogen lamps, LED daytime running lights, fog lights, 14-inch wheels, and front/rear disc/drum brakes. The difference is that the Brio G has bigger tires. The rearview mirror may be adjusted/folded rather than incorporated with turn signals like on the Hyundai i10 1.2 AT.
In terms of the inside, the edge goes to the Hyundai i10 1.2AT, which has leather seats to provide a more luxurious and clean sensation (on Brio G, felt hearts), and a 3-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel (on Brio G). is a smooth 3-spoke Urethane style). Nonetheless, the little Korean car has a start button and a smart key, whilst the Brio G is still fairly archaic with a mechanical key.
There is an automated trunk opening/closing function on both, but the air conditioning system remains mechanical. Brio has an advantage over the competition. The back seats can be folded flat, providing optimal comfort for extended travels or carrying more things (on the i10, it can only be folded in a 60:40 ratio).
The Hyundai Grand i10 1.2 AT retains its edge since it is equipped with a 7-inch screen with integrated navigation of the Vietnamese version, which is quite useful in navigating. AUX/USB and Bluetooth connections are available in vehicles. Meanwhile, the Honda Brio G has a standard 1-DIN screen with Bluetooth, Siri, USB, and AUX connections. Both automobiles have four speakers in their sound systems.
Despite its lower price, the i10 offers a stronger list of safety features when fitted with a reverse sensor, which helps the driver feel more comfortable when reversing, parking, BA emergency braking, and especially balancing. Electronics are a rather uncommon safety element in the same market category. Honda Brio G features BA emergency brake assistance and an automatic door lock when the car is operating, making it ideal for female customers who drive vehicles with little children.
In terms of performance, the tiny Japanese vehicle, Honda Brio G, has an edge since it is equipped with a more powerful engine and a CVT gearbox, which provides a thrilling driving experience that is superior to the i10's 4-speed automatic transmission.
Though both the 2 cars have the same price range of about 20.000 USD, the Hyundai i10 is still a little more affordable than the Honda Brio. Hyundai i10 has a starting price of $14,300, while Honda Brio is priced from $18,000. Compared to Honda Brio 2018, the latest version of Honda Brio has risen price by $3500.
As can be seen, the Hyundai i10 1.2 AT offers a little lower starting price and a more comprehensive list of comfort and safety features. As a result, it is the best option for people who prioritize a car's driving experience over its brand and resale value. On the other hand, the Honda Brio G is a good alternative for people looking for a long-lasting, Japanese-branded car that retains its value when resold.
