Now the Brio gets a premium toned instrument panel with carbon finish and silver accents, while the AC vents have also been redesigned for enhancing the look. You also get a new triple analogue sporty metre with white Illumination that adds to the Brio's sporty quotient. However, the instrument cluster is distinct from the Amaze, which is equipped with a larger multi-information display (MID) to cater the information.

On the safety side, the Brio Facelift features Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body, dual SRS airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and seat belt pre-tensioner. Moreover, the front of the car comes with Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Technology which is designed to distribute the impact energy.
