This 2016 Brio gets changes to both the exterior and interior. The cosmetic changes include a new grille, larger air intakes and new bumpers. The Indian model won't get a chrome strip at the back, as seen on the Indonesian spec. The biggest update is however the updated cabin that features a new dashboard. Design-wise, this is similar to the one in the new Amaze and the BR-V. So we can expect the interior to get a new infotainment system, automatic climate control with a revised unit for the air conditioning and new rectangular vents.
There might be some changes to the powertrain, even if it will be the same 1.2 litre four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine from its predecessor. It could be tuned to produce 90bhp of power and 110Nm of torque. Then, Honda might also add an optional new CVT transmission in addition to choice of the five-speed manual gearbox.
It will be interesting to see if Honda also adds a slew of safety features to the updated Brio. We are expecting ABS and airbags to be offered as an option in lower variants, if not a standard feature. Complete details including variant-wise pricing will be available tomorrow at the launch. Stay tuned.
