(Above is an estimated ex-showroom New Model Honda Brio price list)

The current iteration of the Brio isn’t exactly what we would call ‘Value for Money’. Prices start at INR 4.38 lacs for the base variant, going all the way up to almost INR 7 lacs for the top-spec automatic! Honda did not increase the prices of the Amaze by much when it launched the facelift here in India and we’re not expecting the Brio to witness any major changes in its pricing.

Internationally, Honda has also introduced a sportier variant called the Brio RS (similar to the Mobilio RS sold in India) and could bring it to India as well. If launched, the Honda Brio RS will cost around INR 7 lacs for the manual petrol variant. Also, the automatic variant will be equipped with a CVT instead of the current 5-speed unit.

No changes have been made to the Brio’s engine. The 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol unit has been carried over unchanged from the current model. However, we are expecting a marginal hike in mileage figures. Also, the Brio could get a new CVT model.
