Honda Brio diesel car coming soon

Honda India is soon to introduce a diesel variant of its popular small car Honda Brio. With Honda Brio diesel in place, the small car segment in India is expected to hot up. The decision is taken in the light of the higher price of petrol compared to diesel as well as the increased preference of car buyers towards diesel cars. Notably, Honda has witnessed not as expected sales of Honda cars in India including Honda City and Honda Accord and others only because of the non availability of diesel make.
