2016 Honda Brio (facelift) vs outgoing Honda Brio – Old vs New

Posted on: Apr 8, 2016 - 11:08am IST

Only launched in Indonesia for now.

Honda Indonesia has unveiled a mid-cycle facelift for the Honda Brio as well as a sportier Brio RS variant at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2016. Here’s a pictorial comparison between the facelifted and outgoing models.

As expected, the Indonesia-spec 2016 Honda Brio (called Brio Satya) features similar changes that we have seen in the 2016 Honda Amaze. Most of the changes are concentrated up front, sporting a more aggressive face with a larger radiator intake, faux intakes that house the foglamps, bolder dual slat black plastic grille that houses an upright Honda logo. The only change to the rear-end is the addition of a bold chrome bar.

Like the facelifted Amaze, the new Brio Satya features a dashboard sourced from the Honda BR-V, thus replacing the plasticky dashboard of the outgoing model. Accentuated with faux silver, the new dashboard integrates a mix of matte plastic and piano black trim materials that are well put together and add a premium feel to Honda’s entry level hatchback.

While the steering wheel design looks identical, the new Brio gets a single-pod instrument cluser, 2-DIN JVC head unit and new HVAC controls with a dedicated digital display.

The new Honda Brio Satya packs the same 1.2 litre four-cylinder i-VTEC motor from the outgoing model, but has been slightly revised to produce 90 PS and 110 Nm. The 5-speed automatic has now been replaced for Earth Dreams Technology CVT, while a five-speed manual gearbox remains standard.
