The Honda Brio facelift will continue with the 1.2-liter petrol engine developing 88 PS and 109 Nm of torque.

On the outside, the Brio facelift gets a new black grille with a chrome underline and a new front bumper, both of which are inspired by the Honda Amaze facelift. The top-end VX-MT seen in this image carries on with the same alloy wheel pattern as the pre-facelift model. While there are no changes at the back (the Indian-spec Honda Brio facelift will not get a rear wiper), the Brio facelift does get an updated interior.

The dashboard is now shared with the Amaze facelift and Honda BR-V. This top-end variant of the Brio facelift gets an all-black dashboard with black seat upholstery, though the lower variants could get a dual-tone black-and-beige color theme.

The Brio facelift could trade its 5-AT for the more efficient CVT.

The center console reveals the new 2-DIN music system with Bluetooth support, whereas below that is the automatic climate control which replaces the manual AC on the top-end variants; the entry- and mid-level variants would continue with the manual AC controls.
