It won't be long until the all-new Honda Brio arrives in the country. In fact, they've been teasing us for quite some time already, showing previews on their Facebook page. Now, we also know that a big batch of them will be landing on our ports.
We're a pretty special market too, because we will be the first country to get the small hatch outside of Indonesia. You can even see in the photos that the cars are in left-hand drive. All Honda Brios are to be assembled in Karawang Indonesia meaning the cars we will be getting soon will be completely built units or CBUs.
For now, we don't know for certain the specs of the Philippine-market Brio. However, we do see that there's the standard model, along with the RS variant making their way to the ship. It could mean that we'll see at least three variants of the Brio. The possible variants are an entry-level model with a manual transmission, one with a CVT, and the aforementioned RS.
Engine specs are also yet to be determined. It is currently unknown if the all-new Brio will stick to a 1.3-liter engine, just like the soon to be outgoing model. However, if Honda wants to streamline their models across the region, then it is more likely to use the 1.2-liter engine in the Indonesia-spec Brio. That engine is good for 90 PS and 110 Nm of torque.
The all-new Honda Brio was previewed here during last year's Philippine International Motors Show as the Small RS Concept. Its front end is largely based on the Mobilio with its upswept headlights and upright grill. Meanwhile, the side profile is more conventional than its previous iteration, and it has grown in size as well.
