The second generation Honda Brio made its debut at the 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) in Indonesia. Since then the vehicle has been introduced in various ASEAN markets already. Developed by Honda R&D Asia Pacific Company Ltd., the new Brio is specifically designed to fulfill the requirements of customers in small cars segment.

Honda Atlas was reportedly working on to introduce the Brio hatchback in Pakistan, however the decision of introducing of a new locally-assembled car was deferred owing to the country’s uncertain economic conditions. If Honda had small fuel efficient cars like the Brio in its lineup, the sales situation might have been a lot better than what it is today. The company is already observing non-production days which have exceeded 85 since the last 4 months due to weakening demand and poor sales, while its plant will be operated for just 7 days in November.
