Small cars account for nearly half the number of overall passenger car sales in the country. Almost every car maker has a presence here and while some like Maruti and Hyundai have done immensely well, a few others haven’t seen the kind of success they would’ve desired.
Five years back Honda also made its debut in this very competitive segment with the Brio. The Brio then got mixed reactions especially about the way it looked and that could be the reason why the Japanese car maker has decided to alter some exterior and exterior elements of the hatch. The car continues to run on the same 1.2 litre 88 PS petrol engine and like before comes in both manual and Petrol options. The new Brio range starts at Rs. 4.67 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and Honda is promising a mileage of 18.5 km/l on the manual variant of the car.
