I am planning to buy Honda Brio, is it a good hatchback for city driving?

Brio is the entry level product from Honda, just below Jazz. The outer looks has all the Honda cues like single slat front chrome grille which is the face of Honda cars today. The rear is a full glass hatch which makes it look even more interesting. Brio carries the same flair inside too, the dash is nicely laid out with inbuilt music system, The plastic quality used is OK but not by Honda standards. It seems to be cramped but the moment you step in, it shows that it does not lack there too. It can carry four adults easily. Although sitting at rear could be a problem for taller people as the headroom is low. Boot space is at par with the segment but accessibility is compromised. The engine is the same old 1.2L but it is tuned to give out more power nad mileage. But at the same time it is less responsive. For city driving, this car is perfect, its small turning radius, engine power and gear shifting are all matched for the city drive only, it surely doesnt mean that you cannot take it on long highway joults.
There are some basic parameters which everyone should need to follow when you are living in place where traffic jams and crowded places is the daily routine then you must buy a foe economical car because you need to brake continuously where compact body design (most prefer is hatchback) and finally the comfortable cabin is the basic need. According to above mentioned profile of a car Honda Brio is the perfect car because this car have good fuel economy with compact body design and comfortable cabin for passengers and river to sit especially for traffic jams.
