The small car segment that has average monthly sales of around 35,000 units, has been dominated by Maruti Suzuki Alto over a decade. With the Brio’s production halt, Honda will leave the country’s highest volume generating segment. However, the Jazz and WR-V will continue to cater the small car requirements.
As of now, the carmaker has no plan to bring in the next-generation Honda Brio in the country. The new-gen Brio made its global debut at the 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Motor Show in Jakarta.
