Honda teases Brio sedan on Thai site, launch to happen soon

The Honda Brio sedan will first be launched in Thailand and the company has already started advertising by putting a teaser of the Brio sedan silhouette on the website. The teaser says the car will be powered by the same 1.2 litre petrol engine.

Thailand is the lead market for the Brio platform and qualifies for the Thai eco car project. Honda may use the Thailand International Motor Expo to launch the Brio sedan. Two years back the company had showcased the Brio production car concept here.

The Brio sedan will get similar variant nomenclature like the Brio and will be offered in both manual and automatic transmission options. No much details of the car are revealed but we can expect the equipment levels to be similar to the Brio hatch.

Honda will launch the Brio sedan in the Indian market somewhere in April 2013. Initially only the petrol will be on offer and later the company will install a diesel heart which is going to be the first diesel engine by Honda for the Indian market. We can also expect the Brio sedan in the Indian market to be offered with an automatic transmission.

Honda India will soon launch the Brio hatchback with automatic transmission. The launch will happen on the 18th of this month.
