Honda Activa 4G vs Honda Dio 2017 Comparison – Verdict

  • Design – The Honda Dio looks much more sporty. Honda Activa’s styling comparatively conservative.
  • Specifications – Both scooters get the same engine.
  • Mileage – The Dio could be a wee bit more fuel efficient thanks to a lower kerb weight.
  • Price – The Dio holds a slight price advantage over the Activa 4G. But for a slightly higher price, Activa offers an all-metal body.

Honda Activa 4G has universal appeal. You simply can’t go wrong with the tried and tested Activa, which also happens to be India’s most popular two wheeler. However, if you’re looking for something that looks a bit more sporty while offering the same frugal nature of the Activa then the Dio is a very good option.
