Honda Brio launch in Indonesia scheduled for September 2012

Honda Brio, the popular compact hatchback which was rolled-out in the Indian market last year, is all set to expand in the global market as the company is ready to launch it in a number of new markets. Recently, Japanese auto giant Honda announced its plans of rolling-out Honda Brio in the Indonesian market in September 2012, at the event of Indonesia International Motor Show, where it is expected to be welcomed by a large number of car enthusiasts.

The car won’t be manufactured in the Indonesian market as of now, and instead the car will be exported to Indonesia from Honda’s Thailand plant. However, the company is likely to produce the car locally in Indonesia from next year onwards, so that the car can be positioned more competitively in that market.

The Honda Brio will come powered by a 1.2L, 3 cylinder engine in Indonesia, which is based on the premium hatchback Honda Jazz’s bigger 1.2L, 4 cylinder engine. With a five speed manual transmission system, the Honda Jazz model will be delivering a fuel economy of over 20 km per liter. The company is aiming to sell as many as 2,000 units of this model in the Indonesian market in the initial year.
