Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Gets sportier exterior and interior upgrades.
Along with the facelifted Honda Brio Satya, Honda Indonesia also unveiled a sportier-looking Honda Brio RS at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2016 today. Prices start from Rp. 174.7 million (INR 8.83 lakhs) for the Honda Brio RS CVT.
Similar to the Mobilio RS sold here, the Honda Brio RS gets sportier upgrades over the facelift seen in the new Honda Brio Satya. It features bigger 15-inch rims, side skirts, projector headlamps with LED guide lights, power-operated ORVMs with turn indicators, rear glass garnish and RS badges.
The interior of the Brio RS is differentiated from the regular Brio Satya by featuring an all-black cabin with orange stitching on the fabric seats and a 6.2-inch touchscreen unit. Otherwise, the changes are similar to Brio Satya. Both get a new dashboard sourced from the Honda BR-V that is simpler and well-appointed, single pod instrument dials and new HVAC controls with a dedicated display.
Under the hood, the facelifted Honda Brio 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.
