It is believed that Honda is in the process of preparing for a Diwali launch for the much anticipated Brio small car.  Honda hopes to be back on full steam by July and therefore believes that it can stick to the original schedule that it had of launching the Brio hatchback during the festive season.  Enthusiastic auto journos had predicted that Honda would fast track the launch of the Brio to counter the Etios Liva hatchback from arch rival Toyota.  It now emerges that there was no such plan in the offing and Honda has always wanted to launch the Brio during the festive season only.
