The 1.2-liter 4-cylinder 16-valve engine with 90 horsepower gives enough power, and fuel economy is excellent as the new 1.2-liter sedan can satisfy a wide and varied range perfectly.” The new 1.2L petrol engine, Honda says, is specially developed for auto markets in Asia, especially Thailand and India.
For Honda Cars India, new Brio Amaze sedan will be a game changer as it will be offered with a diesel engine in India. Honda car sales in India have declined over the last few years due to rise in fuel prices, and with not a single diesel car in their portfolio in India, Honda sales suffered. But all is expected to change drastically, once Brio Amaze diesel features in the Indian auto industry next year and take on the market leader, Maruti Suzuki DZire which sells around 12,000 units every month.
