Honda Brio to be launched in South Africa on Dec 3
Honda is certainly very tech-savvy and loves to surprise its fans via social media network. Recently, Honda South Africa’s official page at Facebook had the news about the launch of Brio. This was obviously very exciting for the Honda fans in South Africa. According to the news piece on the FB page of Honda, Honda Brio hatchback will be launched in the South African car market on this Monday that is 3rd December. The company has already commenced the promotional campaign for the hatchback on their official website in SA.

The webpage suggests that Brio is coming soon and request the users to register that take them to another page. Brio hatchback certainly lives up to its tagline, which says ‘It Loves you Back!’ sadly, the company has dropped this headline in South Africa and replaced it by ‘Life is unreliable. The Honda Brio isn’t’. Initially, Honda India sent about 390 Honda Brios to South Africa, which was reached there last week. These hatchbacks are currently being manufactured in the official manufacturing plant of Honda India, located in Greater Noida, India.
Talking about the specifications, Brio hatchback is installed with 1.2 litre of four cylinder petrol engine producing 90PS of power. This engine is further mated with five-speed manual and automatic transmissions, which makes it an impressive performer on road. Price wise, Honda Brio is expected to be launched with a reasonable price rag and will be positioned below Honda Jazz.
India made cars have a status in SA. Ford Figo and Toyota Etios twins which were manufactured in India turned out to be a huge success in South Africa. On the other hand, Tata Indica Vista and Hyundai i10 that are also India-made are amongst the most admired cars there. Hopefully, Honda Brio will impress one and all in SA.
