Asia Bizz: Japanese car making giant, Honda, is ready to launch its Brio in the small car segment in the Indian market today on 27th September. With the entry of Honda Brio, the competition on the small car segment in the country is going to increase.
The company has released some of the information of the car, in which it has stated that it has an easy to handle compact body and also has enough cabin space to accommodate five people in it. The small car has been powered by a 1200 cc petrol engine.
The Honda Brio delivers an average of 20 KMPL and has the maximum power of 89Bhp at 6200 rpm, along with a torque of 110 Nm at 4800 rpm. Considering the demand for the diesel vehicles in India, the company would soon consider to bring the diesel versions to in the market.
The hatchback has already been launched in Thailand. In Europe, the diesel version of Brio is already available which has a 2.2 litre diesel engine, which is unfortunately not suitable for the Indian market. As the sulphur content in diesel in the country is higher, such an engine will not be ideal. In India, the hatchback will be competing against the leading hatchbacks like Maruti Swift, Ford Figo, Toyota Etios Liva and Chevrolet Beat.
