We have brought you quite a few interesting speculative renderings of the upcoming 7-seater and here is another one. Dunia Otomotif reports that according to a source, the Brio MPV will have a rear fascia design which borrows cues from the new Honda CR-V.

The rendering attempts to combine the Brio’s unchanged front with a CR-V like rear fascia. The result is a long, SUV-ish people carrier with decent looks!

The Brio MPV is being developed by PT Honda Astra Motor, the Indonesian subsidiary of Honda, under the supervision of R&D engineers from Japan. The MPV is expected to be ready for its public premiere at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) which is set to take place in September this year.

The car will enter production at Honda’s upcoming facility in West Java, Indonesia, sometime in 2014. The Brio MPV will compete with the Maruti Ertiga in India as well as Indonesia.

The MPV is expected to share its petrol powertrain with the Brio and the Amaze. In addition, the India spec model would offer a diesel engine and the 1.5 litre i-DTEC motor is the most probable candidate.

    When will this model be launch? Im sure lots of Honda fanatics will love this car. With its sporty look, enough room for passengers, and low consumption of petrol. I hope this model be available here in the Philippines.

    The Amaze was a killer product and the new generation Jazz looks stunning. But this one is disappointing. The front and the rear fascia just doesn’t go well together. The Brio front face looks silly on such a big car. The rear looks good though.

    No this is not even good as ertiga! we need differentiated design from all other manafacturers…

    If we can safely assume something like this (Brio based front and CRV based read, it definitely should look way better than innova (IMO), however might not pose a striking design. Nevertheless, with Better-than-Innova design (they should take care of not repeating the same basic Brio interiors as it looks very boring) and with good space inside (Honda’s priniciple of Man-maximum-Machine-Minimum) and a pricing slightly above Ertiga, this will win hands down like AMAZE.
