While in India, the small hatchback was produced by Honda's subsidiary company known as Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL). During that time, most of the parts used to manufacture the Brio were sourced from Indian suppliers. By 2012, the Brio was launched in Indonesia where it was also locally assembled. It wasn’t until 2014 when Honda Cars Philippines, Incorporated finally launched the Honda Brio to the local market. This presented small car buyers with even more options to choose from.

On the other hand, the top spec Brio RS variant gets a piano black grille treatment with an RS emblem. There’s also a rear spoiler and rear bumper diffuser with matching 15-inch alloy wheels making the RS variant really standout.

    Honda is offering the Brio in the following colors, Taffeta White, Modern Steel Metallic, Carnival Yellow, Phoenix Orange Pearl, and Rallye Red populate the selection, with Phoenix Orange Pearl being an RS exclusive color.
