This year, Honda’s theme is “Drive Sporty – Live Safely”, and their newest hatch seems to bring both fundamentals together in a pretty, albeit tiny package. Based on what seems to be the platform of the new Brio, the Small RS also borrowed what looks to be the front end of the Brio’s bigger cousin, the Mobilio RS. From the bold design of the front fascia, to its metallic orange paint, this hot hatch is a show stealer.


The sport-styled small hatchback should likely gives a glimpse into what the next-gen Brio might look.
