The car was known for its peppy engine and roomy cabin in spite of its puny dimensions. The Brio also marked the beginning of the Honda line-up for the country and the platform was used to build a series of future Honda cars like the Amaze, the Mobilio and the BR-V. After the initial rally, the Brio had to play second fiddle to more successful Honda cars due to the production capacity crunch which eventually led to marginalisation of the hatchback.
With the competitors updating their cars in the meantime, the Brio had become a laggard amongst the hatchbacks except for the few who specifically wanted the pocket rocket. After five years, Honda has finally updated the Brio. As expected, it is the same car with the exact same engine and gets a facelift and an interior revamp to bring it up to date. It gets the BR-V style thick slat across the radiator grille which is painted black while the lower border gets chrome treatment.
The bumper also now resembles the Amaze with the new three-part layout of the air dam. Rest of the car though, remains identical except for the alloys. The biggest change is inside the cabin with the Brio ditching the dated round-themed layout for the dashboard that has been inspired by the Amaze, City and the BR-V. The all-black dashboard gets rectangular air-vents and glazed highlights which looks rich.
The interior is offered in beige for the E and S trims while the interior is all black for the top-spec VX trim. The VX also gets dual airbags, ABS with EBD, automatic climate control and height adjustable driver seat. The infotainment system still misses out on a touch-screen option which may be offered in future with the AVN pack. Mechanically, it will have the same 1.2-litre four-cylinder 89bhp i-Vtec petrol engine that will continue with the Brio.
Generating 109Nm of torque, the petrol engine comes with a five-speed manual gearbox and a five-speed automatic transmission. While we expected the Brio to get the CVT like the Amaze, the torque converter works quite well and is offered only with the VX trim. The Brio competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ritz, the Hyundai Grand i10 and the Tata Bolt. Missing out on a diesel option, the Brio petrol will certainly like to regain its popularity.
