At the 2015 GIIAS in Indonesia, Honda will unveil a facelifted version of the entry-level Honda Brio hatchback for the local market. The changes will be similar to the model launched in Thailand in 2013, and are not applied to the Honda Brio Satya.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new Honda Brio will feature a rear wiper with defogger, chrome embellishment across the boot handle, a rear spoiler, new 15 inch alloy rims, and fog lamps. Inside, Honda will offer a full black dashboard and seats instead of the two-tone black and beige interior of the previous model, electric folding mirrors, new audio system and steering control switches.
The 2015 Honda Brio is available with two engine options: 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine producing 100PS and 127 Nm in the Brio Sports, and a 1.2-litre, i-VTEC motor producing 88 PS of power and 109 Nm of torque in the regular variants. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
It’s unclear as to when Honda will facelift the India-spec Honda Brio. It was last updated in October 2014 with minor interior upgrades. There are talks of a next generation Honda Brio, which will be “tailor-made” for India and expected to launch in 2017.
