Next-gen Honda Brio coming in 2017

Next-gen Honda Brio coming in 2017

Honda will introduce the replacement for the slow-selling Brio hatchback in India by 2017. The brand is also looking at getting rid of the Brio nameplate since it has not done significantly good as a brand.
This also means that the current generation Brio will continue to struggle in the market for 2 more years. Or is Honda planning to pull the plug anytime soon?
The new Brio will make use of the same platform, but get an all-new body shell. It will get rid of the glass rear section & the quirky looks which were a major deterrent during the buying decision. It is also expected to increase its footprint to offer more cabin space, at par with the competition.
Powering the new Brio would be the same 1.2L i-VTEC petrol motor along with an all-new 1.1L i-DTEC diesel motor. Expect segment-best fuel efficiency figures with this model.
When launched, the new Brio will try & pick a fight with the Hyundai Grand i10 & Maruti Suzuki Swift.
