Honda Brio Amaze sedan has been officially unveiled in Thailand as scheduled. Just hours before the official debut, Brio Amaze official images were leaked to web. The actual car is exactly similar to the images we have seen earlier. The Honda Brio Amaze has slightly different but a similar front end compared to it’s hatchback sibling. In Thailand only petrol variants are on offer and diesel is not expected there. The Amaze gets a 1.2ltr 4 cylinder engine in Thai market, the same engine is doing duty in Brio hatchback as well. Honda claims Amaze’s fuel economy will touch 20kmpl (which is better than Brio hatchback). Honda Amaze comes with Eco Meter which will help to optimize the throttle and maximum fuel efficiency.
Honda Amaze is coupled to either a five speed manual gearbox or a CVT gear box in Thailand market. The interiors of the Honda Brio Amaze is similar to Brio but there some changes in the color schemes. The interiors comes in brown shade in Amaze while Brio hatch has a combination of brown and beige.
Honda Brio Amaze is expected to hi Indian market by first quarter of 2013 with an all new diesel engine. This could be the first diesel engine powered Honda in Indian sub-continent. In India, initially only manual transmission will be available and an autobox variant will be joining at a later stage.
Going by initial reviews, we think Honda Brio Amaze India launch will keep their dealership busy and will make the current segment leader Maruti Suzuki Dzire’s life miserable. But before jumping in to conclusions, we need to wait and see the pricing strategy. Anyways Honda Brio Amaze could be one of the most important car launch which is scheduled for next year. Stay tuned for more updates.
