Basically what Honda Cars India has done with the Brio facelift is that the hatch now looks upgraded and more premium like its bigger sibling – the 2016 Honda Amaze. This includes a redesigned front styling with high-gloss black and chrome finish grille, smoked headlamp finish, and a more protruding bumper design.
