Honda reveals new generation Brio at Gaikindo International Auto Show
Honda has unveiled the new generation Brio at the ongoing GIIAS International Motor show. The new Brio was showcased in two variants standard and RS.
The new Brio looks identical to the Small RS Concept shown earlier at the Indonesia motor show 2018 and follows the latest design language seen on the WR-V and Amaze. It gets a thick chrome front grille and sweptback headlamps with LED daytime running lamps. The new bumper however features fog lamp housings that are similar to the current car but the biggest change is at the rear, where the entry level hatchback features a larger rear door, redesigned conventional tailgate, that glass unit entirely and Ford Figo inspired taillamps.
The Japanese company has also revealed the Brio RS which features a sporty design with a sportier looking front bumper, blacked out front grille, side skirts, and faux diffuser at the rear.
Though Honda hasn’t revealed the interiors but we expect the layout to be the same as the new Amaze with a large touchscreen most commonly called the Digipad. The touchscreen should come equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and navigation. The new Brio is also expected to feature a new steering wheel and instrument cluster as well.
Mechanically the new Honda Brio will continue to draw power from the same 1.2 litre i-VTEC petrol engine but with higher states of tune, along with 5-speed manual and CVT automatic transmission.
The new 2019 Brio looks promising with an all new design, however Honda Cars India have no plans to get the car to India as of now but with the new generations of the Civic and CR-V expected to make it to our shores soon, the Japanese company has a busy year ahead.
