EXCLUSIVE! Next-gen Honda Brio codenamed 2TQ

Honda has already revealed that they will replace the slow selling Brio hatchback in 2017. Seems like the brand has already begun development work on this new model.
Honda will be launching the Brio-based SUV BR-V, codenamed as 2SJ in 2016. Now, we have found out that this codename 2SJ will be sharing parts with another product codenamed as 2TQ.
Considering a new Brio is on the cards & the BR-V has an all new design, we assume that the 2TQ is the next-gen Brio hatchback.
The dashboard will common between the 2SJ & 2TQ. Honda has also imported other sample parts for the new 2TQ to India.
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.
The brand is also looking at getting rid of the Brio nameplate since it has not done significantly good as a brand.
