Designed to preview a production model, the BRIO draws inspiration from the Fit and the New Small Vehicle concept.

Honda has unveiled the BRIO concept at the Thailand International Motor Expo in Bangkok.

Designed to preview a production model, the BRIO measures 3,610mm long, 1,680mm wide and 1,475mm tall. Styling mimics the previous New Small Vehicle concept, but this version is clearly more production ready.

Inside, the no-frills cabin is pretty straightforward but that's to be expected as the car was developed for emerging markets such as India and Thailand. Despite this, the BRIO will apparently offer air conditioning which is a nice option for hot and muggy climates in southeast Asia.

Production models will be market specific, but Honda has confirmed the Thai version will be introduced in March, have a fuel economy rating of 5 liters/100km (47 mpg US), and be priced at approximately 400,000 baht ($13,230 / €10,165).
