Honda Mobilio Interiors Uncovered, Ertiga Beware

Total Shares 0

Honda Mobilio Dashboard

Honda recently unveiled the Mobilio MPV Prototype at the 2013 Indonesian Motor Show. The Japanese automaker will lift the covers off the production model at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show in November. The Mobilio is based on the Brio platform which helps Honda in significant cost savings. Hence, the Honda Mobilio is going to be priced between Rs. 8.42 to 10.10 lakhs in Indonesia and we can expect the Indian arm to follow a similar pricing strategy. The Mobilio is India bound in 2014 and will rival the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

The interiors of the Honda Mobilio MPV have been uncovered and reveal the dashboard, second row and boot. Honda’s principle of ‘Man Maximum Machine Minimum’ works wonders on the Mobilio as well. The dashboard is identical to the Brio and Amaze, featuring the same layout but we can notice a touch screen infotainment system, leather wrapped gear knob and silver pedals. The dashboard is all black but the cabin is finished in dual tone black and beige colours and looks quite appealing.

The second row of the Honda Mobilio doesn’t get captain seats, nor does it get a centre arm rest but there is a roof mounted AC unit with three AC vents and buttons to control the air flow speed. The windows in the second row are much larger than what’s seen on the Amaze and legroom seems generous too (the wheelbase is 2650 mm). The last row of seats is meant for two adults and although we can’t see the space in the third row, the boot seems to be bigger than the Ertiga which means you will have at least 350-litres of storage capacity which can further be boosted by flipping forward the last row in 50:50 ratio.

The Honda Mobilio is powered by the same 1.5-litre i-VTEC mill that propels the City. The diesel engine will come from the Amaze which will really appeal to utility vehicle buyers who are looking for a practical MPV without breaking the bank. With the Toyota Innova touching Rs. 18 lakhs (for the top-end variant, on-road Mumbai), cheaper MPVs offering customers good value for their money is the need of the hour.

    Hope Honda has increased the width of this Car.

      The fate of mobilio is already fixed, It is looks similar to Brio ( just bigger than ALTO) hatch-back, with third row, and boot.

    I still feel Ertiga is better finished inside out. Honda d-tech is powerful but sounds and feels like driving natural aspirated against Fiat’s multijet, which drives with quick response and vibration free throughout rev band. Honda’s brio/Amaze interiors are at least two step sub-standard or feels like cheap plastic compared to Hyundai or Maruti. How can keep compromising just for brand……Goodwill is created through product’s quality…if it’s in question….you can not just chase hype….!! And Honda is also known for occupants comfort…hope they get good seats as expected..!!

    • Veer, trust me, Maruti Suzuki quality is no where Honda’s.

  • Crazywheels

    Ertiga’s Interior is European styled , but the plastic quality is poor compared to Brio’s/ Amazes’ Japanese interiors. The raw power of 1.5 L i-dtec is 99 Hp, whereas the 1.3L multijet engine’s raw power of 75 Hp is tweeked to 90 hp in Ertiga thereby reduced torque. The only problem of Amaze is the noticable NVH levels, but we can neglect this by the superior riding comfort it provides. May honda tweek the 100 Hp to something more in Mobile.

    I’ve been waiting for mobilio launching in Indonesia. I hope the price is cheaper than ertiga.

    I am waiting to get Mobilio launch in India

  • Veeresh

    Outlook is super, yet see the car. Waiting for launching in India.

  • Anu

    Since first impression is the best impression, the interior plastic quality of this mpv including dash board appearance needs to be enhanced a lot to attract the customers including me who are eagerly waiting for the launch of this vehicle.

    • Anu, some cost cutting will be done as the Brio based cars are aimed at mass market.

    so good but soon
