As already read by our dear readers at BharathAutos in our previous posts, the all new Brio MPV was expected to feature Honda Brio at the front along with the traces of the all new Honda CR-V at the rear. After having a glimpse of the official pictures of Brio MPV released a couple of weeks ago, the Brio’s headlight and the overall body shape are expected to be retained in the all new Honda Brio MPV.

The Brio MPV looks as if it is a Maruti Ertiga, with front and some of the body shapes inherited from the Brio. The all new Brio MPV is also expected to compete the likes of the Maruti Ertiga in the Indian and Indonesian market where the car would first go on-sale.
