2017 Honda Brio Facelift comes with an aggressive front-end design and the interior is the main highlight as it gets the new dashboard
Launched in Indonesia last year and after being showcased at the local Auto Expo as well, the Honda Brio facelift was bound to come to India. Honda’s Brio game has been weak after the launch itself as the prices were high and it was not being offered in a diesel guise. Honda is all set to change to bring updates to this new Brio which has been caught at dealerships in the past. Brio came in the year 2011. The Brio offers revised petrol engine with a new automatic gearbox. However, the main highlight is the all new interior, which is directly borrowed from the new Honda City. We have details of the car from the launch.

The engine makes 88 PS of power and 109 Nm of torque. 5-Speed manual is being continued to be offered. 18.5 km/ l and 16.5 km/l is the mileage for manual and automatic gearbox respectively. Automatic remains torque convertor and not a CVT
