Honey, I’ve shrunk the Honda Civic Type R!

Honda has unveiled a pint-sized pocket rocket at the Indonesia International Motor Show called the Small RS Concept.

Designed by Honda R&D Asia Pacific, the concept is based on the Indonesian-market Honda Brio city car and features an aggressive front fascia with deep air intakes, a menacing black grille and bonnet scoop like the Civic Type R.

The sporty little hatchback also gets Type R-inspired side skirts, front fender vents, a large roof-mounted spoiler and a set of low-profile black wheels.

Honda says the Small RS Concept is aimed at young-at-heart customers and offers ‘sporty driving feeling’.

“Honda Small RS Concept is the implementation of our endless innovation,” said President Director PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM), Takehiro Watanabe.

“Emphasising Honda sporty spirit, especially in small car line ups. As a concept car, this is our vision of what a small sporty car should be.”

No engine or performance details have been unveiled. However, the 930kg Brio is powered by a 65kW/109Nm 1.2-litre four-cylinder VTEC engine.
