Honda Brio has proved to be a car that has initiated a comeback of the brand in India. Otherwise, when the sales of Honda City sedan and the Honda Jazz hatchback began to tumble, people started saying that Honda could wind up its operations in India.

Amidst such reports, Honda shifted its focus on Brio small car and the results came unexpected. The Brio hatchback became so popular among small luxury car buyers that its sales surged considerably. Additionally, the recent Brio Automatic launch has also added some quick numbers to the sales chart.
