2016 Honda Brio (Facelift) Now At INR 4.69 Lakhs
The new 2016 Honda Brio hatchback with restyled front fascia and dashboard layout has been officially launched by the company.
Available in four trim avatars – E, S, VX, and VX-AT, the revised prices of the new Brio facelift starts from INR 469,000 (‘E’ trim), scaling up all the way up to INR 681,000 for the ‘VX’ Automatic variant. All prices are Ex-showroom, Delhi.
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. Over the rear, the Brio looks marginally refreshed with updated tail lamps and tiny spoiler. The rear wash-wiper is still missing though.
The interiors, however, gets a major revision. The new Brio boasts a smart, premium-looking dashboard design akin to Honda Amaze, thanks to the new instrument cluster with blue-white colour backlit, rectangular-shaped central AC vents, and silver accents here and there. The 2-din audio system is also new with USB, aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity, while there is a digital ‘max cool’ feature for air-conditioning. The cabin and seats will continue to feature beige or all-black theme (exclusively for the top-end VX).
There are hardly any tweaks under the hood to the 1.2-litre 4-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine that generates 88 PS and 109 Nm of torque at peak demand. The engine is coupled to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic gearbox as per buyers choice. The Honda Brio takes on the all-new Tata Tiago, Maruti-Suzuki Celerio, and Hyundai Grand i10 in the Indian market.
