Honda has given its Small RS Concept its world premiere at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2018, which began today. The small car platform study, designed by Honda’s R&D Asia Pacific centre in Thailand, could well be providing hints of how the next-gen Brio will shape up.

The bold-looking hatch is identical in size to the Brio and features a front end that borrows cues from the Mobilio facelift, especially the RS version. Similarities continue with the choice of the showcar’s exterior shade – the metallic orange hue is reminiscent of that on the Mobilio RS and Brio RS models.

As with existing Honda models, the RS moniker means that it features sportier design elements, and these include plenty of blackened bits. Prominent cues abound, from the front hood vent and large rear spoiler to the gloss black five-spoke alloys and a striking rear diffuser. No tech details, with the company simply saying that the vehicle is targeted at young-at-heart customers who value a sense of sporty driving.

According to PT Honda Prospect Motor president director Takehiro Watanabe, the concept is the company’s vision of what a small sporty car should be. What do you think? Is it sporty enough? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
