Honda Brio caught testing in India

     Honda's much anticipated small car Brio has been caught testing in New Delhi. Mr. Siddarth Vinayak Patankar, the show presenter of NDTVs Car & Bike show could manage to get the spy picture of the car, tough the image is very much blurred.

     Honda had postponed the launch of Brio in India due to the mighty disaster in Japan. The Brio which was earlier slated for June launch was postponed to October this year. Now with the small car seen on the Indian roads we can expect Brio to be here much soon than expected.

     Honda is holding high hopes on the Brio and why should it not? The Brio has been designed from the scratch like the Etios for the developing markets such as India and Thailand. The Brio promises to deliver unmatched performance and fuel efficiency, with Honda claiming Brio to run 20 km with a liter of petrol. With the raising fuel cost and interest rates, Honda wants to be in Indian market sooner.

     The Brio will be powered by a 1.2L iVTEC petrol motor, same one powering the Jazz, though a smaller engine is likely to be available. Safety features such as airbags and ABS are expected to be present in the Brio, first of its kind in a small car in India. Expected to be priced under Rs. 6 lakh, Honda has to bring in a diesel Brio to really compete in the B segment.
