Production of facelifted Honda Brio has officially started in India for export markets. In India, the Brio facelift could be launched around this festive season.
The first batch of Brio facelift has also been exported to South Africa, where only this-week the India-made Brio facelift and the Amaze facelift (Brio sedan facelift) was launched. The MADE-IN-INDIA Brio facelift is similar to the Indonesian model. It gets a larger front grille with a chrome underlining strip and bumper has been redesigned with a new fog lamp cluster.
At the rear, the Brio facelift gets a spoiler and an integrated wash & wipe function for the top-of-the-line trim. New alloy wheels could also be on offer. Rest of the exterior looks the same. Inside, it gets a fresh dashboard in the style of the 2016 Amaze sporting an all-black theme, it adds automatic climate control, a Bluetooth-enabled music system and a larger instrument cluster.
The facelifted Brio should retain the same powertrain choice as before – a 1.2-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine capable of 88 PS and 109 Nm of torque. This unit comes with an 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, along with an option of automatic transmission.
The company has already started working on the next-generation Brio and Amaze, which are codenamed 2UA and 2UB respectively.
