Honda Brio SUV
Honda Brio SUV PreviewHonda reportedly, has started work on a new compact crossover for the emerging markets, which will be derived once again, from the very popular Brio platform.

Brio SUV Platform
Very little is known as this point about the development of the new compact crossover. However, before the news about the Brio-based compact SUV surfaced in the industry, it was strongly believed that the Japanese automaker would bring the stunning-looking Honda Vezel SUV into India. The Honda Vezel, which is a compact crossover based on the Jazz platform was unveiled for the first time at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
Gauging the initial response from the audience, the Honda Vezel would have been perfect for our market to compete with the likes of Ford EcoSport, Renault Duster and the Nissan Terrano. However, Honda officials recently confirmed that the plan to bring the Vezel crossover into India have been dropped.A major reason for this decision is the fact that the rupee lost 20 per cent of its strength in just two years, considerably driving up the Vezel’s cost.Having said all of the above, the good news is that Honda has officially confirmed that the company has started evaluating the Honda Brio’s platform for an all-new compact SUV. The Brio platform is relatively inexpensive and hence, would allow the Japanese company to price the model competitively.
Stay tuned to this space, as we bring you all the latest news and developments regarding the upcoming Brio-based compact crossover.
