Budget saloon will have a longer body to ensure optimum levels of rear occupant comfort.
At a media briefing yesterday in Thailand, Honda engineers said the Brio saloon will have a 3,990mm overall length and 2,407mm wheelbase, longer than the hatchback by 380mm and 62mm accordingly. The 1,680mm width and 1,485mm height are identical.
The additional length was made to accommodate larger, cushier rear seats and a boot measuring 420 litres. As the saloon is 26kg heavier than the hatchback, changes to the suspension had to be made including new coil springs.
The three-box Brio gets the same 90hp 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and CVT automatic transmission, good for a 20.4kpl average fuel economy.
The new Brio derivative will make its world debut in Thailand next month.
