The model was codenamed as CV2; will feature a 1.2 litre petrol engine and will be available at an affordable price.
Honda Brio is expected to hit the roads by next year. Its fuel efficiency and manual gearbox are certain of the characteristics that the car possesses. Details of the price have not been finalized but an approximate of Rs. 5 Lakh is what has been hinted at.
Company officials feel that the small car, which was showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo is going to change the definition of small cars. According to photographs which were taken at the exhibition as well as from the pictures of the model, it can be guessed that it is very similar to Chevrolet Beat.

Maruti Swift also has great design; good interiors, clean sheet design and important features like torsion beam rear suspension and electronic brake force are also provided with. Hyundai i20 is also specially designed with a low slung grille, large stylish headlamps and provide plenty of leg space and baggage space too.
