Japanese car maker Honda Motors is going to showcase the second generation of Brio hatchback during the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIASS) slated to be organized between August 2 and Agust 12, 2018. It is believed that in its next generation the new Brio will undergo vast changes both in terms of features and design. The car maker might launch the same Brio in the Indian car market sometime during the last months of this year.
The first generation of Brio was launched almost seven years back in 2011 after which its facelift version was launch during the IIMS 2016 and therefore it is speculated that in its new avatar the hatchback will undergo vast cosmetic updates. As far as the introduction of new features are concerned nothing has been so far revealed by the car maker but still there are rumors that it might get most of its features from small RS concept that was showcased during the IIMS 2018. That means it will receive new stylish aggressive headlamps, new taillights, projector headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and many more.
Under the hood it is believed to receive the same engine options as offered in recently launched generation next Amaze in the Indian car market. That means under the hood it will be offered in the both petrol and diesel variants that would be empowered with 1.2 litre iVTEC petrol and 1.5 litre diesel engine. The transmission duties would be performed by five speed manual gearbox and CVT transmission system.
