Honda Brio caught testing again, now with video


     The hot news in the Indian automobile industry is about the Honda Brio. Last month we had posted about the Honda Brio being tested on the Indian roads, and the spy pictures did not prove that it was indeed the Brio diesel. Now GTO of team-bhp has come up with a video which clearly shows the Brio diesel is indeed on the test run, which means we can expect the car launch very soon.

     Honda sensing that without a diesel it will be hard in the future to survive in India, has fasten the development and launch plans of its diesel powered cars as the proposal of hike in excise duty of diesel cars going up comes from the petroleum ministry. The Brio diesel could be the first diesel offering from Honda in India as Brio is aimed at mass market and Honda wants to tap it with a bang. The next to follow will be Jazz and City. Honda had announced a 1.6L diesel for the Civic which will come in its new avatar next year. The same engine might be carried over in the City as well.


     From the video it is very clear that the car in the test run is indeed the diesel from the engine clutter when the driver tried to accelerate. It is still not known whether it is a 3 or 4 cylinder engine. Honda had hinted that it is developing a 1.2L diesel for Brio, so engine seen in the video is a 1.2L diesel. The engine clutter seems to be little louder, to be in line with that of the Fabia and the Beat. However Honda would have done proper insulation to reduce the noise and vibrations reaching the cabin. A small and dynamic car like Brio with a diesel engine is what the car expected from the customers in India and Honda if priced will could steal the Swift show, or is it hard to beat the Swift? Your comments are awaited...
