This very engine will also be used in the next generation models of the Jazz hatchback and the City sedan, with both cars slated to debut in India during 2014. The Brio Amaze’s other engine option will be the 1.2 Liter i-VTEC petrol engine that is also used on cars like the Jazz and the Brio hatchbacks.

The sedan is likely to be launched with a starting price of INR 4.99 Lac for the base petrol variant.
