The Honda Brio is scheduled to be launched in India in September and the company has been extensively testing the car. Spotted on the Noida Expressway (quite close to the Honda factory), the Brio will be positioned right below the Jazz and will Honda’s first real volume product for India. The Honda Brio will use the Jazz’s 1.2-liter i-VTEC motor, producing 89 BHP of power at 6200 RPM and 110 Nm of torque at 4800 RPM. The company might detune the motor for fuel efficiency, which is crucial factor for small car buyers.
From the pictures, the Brio looks very similar to the one sold in Thailand. However there are no fog lamps, alloy wheels and rear wiper which indicates two things. Either the car pictured above is the base variant, or Honda plans to price the Brio very aggressively, by launching the Brio sans some features. We expect the Brio range to start at Rs. 4 lakhs with the top model being priced at Rs. 5.5 lakhs (all our estimates are for ex-showroom, Delhi).
