Honda has unveiled the sedan version of its Brio light hatch, first revealed as a tiny green hatch back in 2010.

In sedan form, the little Honda is known as the Amaze Brio, and like the hatch it will focus on emerging markets, including India and South East Asian countries.

Thailand will be the first market to take up the Amaze, where it will be powered by the same 1.2 litre petrol engine that powers its five-door companion.

The small four-cylinder engine produces 67kW and, matched to either a five-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission, offers fuel consumption figures of around 5.0 l/100km.

A 1.5 litre version of Honda's new 1.6 litre 'Earth Dreams' diesel engine will also be offered, with the slightly smaller version developed specifically for the Indian market.

Depending on the market, features will include ABS, EBD and dual front airbags, along with USB/aux audio connectivity, remote central locking and nine cupholders (yes, nine).

In India, the Amaze Brio will compete with the Swift-faced Maruti Suzuki Dzire, along with the Toyota Etios, Tata Indigo CS and the upcoming Mahindra Verito CS.
