According to the information we have got, Honda will add another member to its 2018 series of vehicles. It will be the new 2018 Honda Brio. However, it seems that this model is currently aimed only at the Indian market and perhaps, the Japanese sometime later.
The 2018 Honda Brio will appear more modern and definitely with sharper lines when we talk about the exterior. It will be built on the same platform as the current model, but it will get new body design and reworked exterior features. In the front fascia, you will notice that the nose is sleeker. The new set of LED headlights and fog lights appears sleeker as well and the Brio will also get a new front grille. Under the grille, you will spot a bumper that has got a sportier line. The entire front part appears somehow more aggressive and bolder and it has been said that perhaps, this car is more aimed at younger population. In the back part of the new Brio, you can also expect a redesigned sporty rear bumper. The car will be standing on a new set of redesigned alloy wheels. Brio is currently available in five body paint colors – Rallye Red, Urban Titanium, Alabaster Silver, Orchid White Pearl and Taffeta White, but it might add some new shades for the 2018 model.
The interior of the 2018 Honda Brio will also look more modern, upgraded and apparently more spacious. We have been informed that although it will be built on the same platform as the current model, it will provide more space for its passengers inside. Namely, the new Brio will perfectly accommodate five adult passengers and even the rear seats will not face the ‘cramped’ situation. Being Honda model, the new Brio will pay attention to hi-tech features and provide large touch screen for the infotainment system as well as the multi information display for the driver. The dashboard will be brand-new as well as the instrument cluster which will probably get a digital speedometer. Also, you will find a new multifunctional steering wheel. Other options include navigation, audio system, automatic climate control, rear A/C vents, Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports as well as safety systems and driver assist features such as rearview camera, ABS and airbags.
One of the engine options that the 2018 Honda Brio will get is an upgraded 1.2-liter petrol engine with 87 horsepower and 80 pound-feet of torque. Such an engine should be mated to five-speed manual transmission and a CVT. The other version comes with a 1.5-liter diesel engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission only.
2018 Honda Brio
The 2018 Honda Brio is expected to be launched by the end of the next year, probably in October, 2018. It will cost between INR 5 lakhs and INR 7 laksh, which means that it starts around $8,000 dollars or less for a base model.
