Honda Brio saloon version previewed for Thailand

0—The Honda Brio, first unveiled at the 2011 Thailand International Motor Show, is a small five-door hatchback model specially designed by Honda for Asian markets such as Thailand and India. It is expected to be introduced to Indonesia in 2014. In the Thai market, Honda Thailand has recently previewed the four-door saloon version on its website and released the first rear view of the Honda Brio 2023 saloon version.

Honda Thailand has recently teased the launch of the four-door saloon version of the Brio on its official website, and has deliberately used an all-black silhouette to heighten consumer anticipation of the model.
The four-door saloon version, based on the current Honda Brio hatchback, has been redesigned to take account of the extra rear section, with the line of the C-pillar extending from the rear tailgate in the shape of a sheet that protrudes from the sides and continues ahead of the tail lights. The luggage compartment opening has been deliberately enlarged to provide a more practical opening. The Honda Brio saloon version also features a new red tail lamp cluster, a ducktail-shaped luggage compartment lid and a chrome trim across the centre, which also reflects the youthful appearance of the car.

The first photos of the Honda Brio four-door saloon released by the factory only show the rear profile, but the distinctive rear line difference from the five-door hatchback can be clearly seen, and the deliberately shaped ducktail shape of the luggage compartment, the new red light clusters and the chrome trim also show the sporty and youthful appearance of the car.
The Honda Brio will be powered by the same 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated engine as the hatchback, with i-VTEC variable timing and lift technology, producing 90 hp at 6,000 rpm and 11.2 kgm of peak torque at 4,800 rpm. The transmission is expected to be available as a 5-speed manual or CVT transmission. In addition, the Honda Brio 4-door saloon version is likely to be powered by a 1.2-litre i-DTEC diesel engine based on the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine first introduced by Honda at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, with reduced emissions to meet market demand. U-CAR will continue to monitor the launch of the new Honda Brio 4-door saloon version and bring you the latest news.
