Honda launces Brio facelift at Rs 4.69 Lakh

This update will be the first one since the car's launch in India back in 2011.

Honda has finally launched the facelifted Brio in the Indian market at a price of Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This update will be the first one since the car's launch in India back in 2011. Due to its compact design, the hatchback is perfect for city use. The car has similar updates as seen on the Amaze facelift, which was launched back in March 2016. The hatchback remains mechanically unaltered.

Speaking of the changes, the facelifted Brio gets a bigger, more aggressive front bumper, which is identical to the one on the Amaze, with angular fog lamp housings and muscular creases. The lower portion of the bumper gets a wide air dam with a honeycomb mesh grille. The front face gets a bold single slat grill with the Honda insignia and is flanked by teardrop headlamps. This design too is in sync with the Amaze. The only thing different is the missing chrome on the grille. The side and rear profile of the car remain identical to the previous model, with a rising shoulder line and triangular tail lamps. The only noticeable change at the rear is the addition of the spoiler with brake light.

Inside, the hatchback gets an ‘all-new’ cabin – ‘all-new’ for the Brio, but one that we have already seen on the BR-V, Jazz and the Amaze. The Brio gets dual-tone interiors with chrome accents on the dashboard. The top end variant, on the other hand, gets 'Sporty Black' Interiors. The centre console consists of a music system which has Bluetooth phone integration and audio streaming. Below this unit are the automatic climate control switches with a display. The instrument cluster is a clear, three-dial analogue unit with warning lights and a digital trip metre.

Mechanically, as mentioned, the engine remains identical to the earlier model. The Brio uses a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol motor which comes mated to a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission giving a fuel economy of 18.5kmpl and 16.5kmpl respectively. The engine produces 88PS of power and 109Nm of peak torque.

In terms of safety, the Brio Facelift comes with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE™) body, dual SRS airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), seat belt pre-tensioner and the front body structure of the Brio is equipped with Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Technology designed to absorb impact energy.

This facelift is likely to boost the dull sales of the Brio in the market. With the refreshed interiors and exteriors and the festive timing, it does tick all the right boxes to make a strong comeback in the market.
