It seems that Honda will debut its diesel cars journey in India with the diesel Honda Brio and will be later launching the City Diesel, Jazz Diesel and Civic Diesel.

The Brio test vehicle is assumed to be a diesel run car as there was no iVTEC badge on the car. Besides, the Brio is in no position to get a facelift so soon. Thus it is in all probability be the diesel Brio that was on test run. As per the information available, the diesel Brio will be powered by 1.2 L iDTEC engine which will have an overall mileage delivery of around 24 - 25 kmpl. Besides, the current stunning interiors will be carried on to the diesel trims as well. If it happens to return 25 kmpl, it will be the highest mileage diesel car in India leaving behind Chevrolet Beat Diesel.

As per various sources information, the Brio Diesel will be using the downgraded 1.6 L EarthDreams engine that has four cylinder and it produces 120 bhp and a peak torque of 300 Nm. With this, the Brio Diesel will be the most powerful hatchback leaving behind Fiat Punto Sport and Maruti Swift. However, auto industry experts believe that Honda will be tuning the engine to somewhat 95 – 100 bhp that will be sufficient power for this diesel hatchback.
