Honda uncovers Brio city car prototype

Honda has just dropped the sheets off its latest city-car prototype at this year’s Thailand International Motor Show. Named the Brio, the vehicle is targeted at the emerging markets in India and Thailand.

Honda has changed focus and now says it will develop unique models for various markets, noting that the Thai version will be more efficient than its Indian stablemate. The flip side is that the Indian market Brio will come with a greater focus on driving performance to suit customer demands. Honda didn’t announce what engine will power the Brio, but early speculation would suggest the Japanese automakers 1.2-liter four-cylinder mill.

The Brio should go a long way to helping Honda tap into the growing consumer interest in economical small cars in parts of Asia but competition is fierce. Honda will need to battle cheap metal from Suzuki, Hyundai and Kia among others.
