Honda Thailand has prepared a mild refresh for the Brio and Brio Amaze models.

Both the Brio Amaze sedan and the Brio hatchback are embracing the new model year with a lightly modified front grille giving the cars a somewhat sportier appearance. The front bumper has also gone through a minor nip and tuck to make the cars appear prettier. For extra customization, buyers will be given the opportunity to opt for fresh alloy wheels. Other changes on the outside include a new look for the projector headlights (with LED position), revised fog lights, resculpted rear bumper, and a new Lunar Silver Metallic color.

Stepping inside the cabin, the Brio duo is home to a new center console with improved ergonomics along with a more upscale finish. Honda uses the term “premium” to describe the dashboard, but we wouldn’t go that far since after all these are simple, no-frills cars. Buyers are not exactly expecting a high-end fit and finish, but the Brio does have a few aces up its sleeve, such as a Smart Key System and One Push Start Ignition.

Billed as being "eco-cars," the Honda Brio sedan and hatchback share a naturally-aspirated 1.2-liter, four-cylinder engine rated at 90 horsepower (67 kilowatts). Output of the Euro 4-compliant i-VTEC engine is channeled to the front axle through a continuously variable transmission that promises to offer “agility and exceptional fuel economy.”

Already available to order in Thailand, the Brio hatchback kicks off at 495,000 baht ($13,909) in the V CVT trim while the Brio Amaze sedan costs 517,000 baht ($14,527) in the same configuration. The sedan can also be had in a more expensive SV CVT trim that will set you back 577,000 baht ($16,213).
