Honda to refresh the Brio hatchback?

Honda to refresh the Brio hatchback?

The Honda Brio has been in the Indian market for a long time now, and with almost no major changes since the 1st day of launch.
Now, spyshots have emerged from international soil which hint that a refreshed model could be on the cards.
This Brio model which was spotted only gets cosmetic changes, hence, expect it to be powered by the same 1.2L, i-VTEC petrol motor matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Changes:
  • Body coloured applique on the rear glass
  • New alloy wheels
  • New front grille
  • Chrome garnish at the back
  • All-black interiors
  • Power folding ORVM
  • New head unit
  • New steering controls
Sales of the Brio have been not so encouraging in the past 6 months and the model struggles to sell over 1,000 units / month.
This refreshed model, if it does arrive to Indian showrooms, will do very little to appeal to newer audience. Also, the new Jazz in the same showroom is surely going to cannibalize sales.
