Honda Mobilio Is The Brio Based MPV

The Honda Brio based MPV is confirmed to be launched in the near future, as the screenshots of the official pictures and variants has been leaked. The upcoming Honda MPV is said to be called Honda Mobilio, which has been used by the company previously. According to the leaked brochures, the Honda Mobilio will be launched in three trims – S, E and E CVT. On the styling front, it looks exactly like the Brio hatchback, as seen on the Amaze too. Moving towards the rear reveals a different design because of the additional third row of seats.

The 2014 Honda Mobilio will be unveiled officially at the IIMS 2013 in Jakarta, which begins on 19th September. On the safety front, the Mobilio gets dual airbags as standard across all the variants. Only the range topping E CVT trim gets ABS. Audio system is also standard on all variants, while the E and E CVT get double blowers and alloy wheels. It is expected to be powered by the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol motor in Indonesia, while in India the Japanese automaker will also offer the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine.

Transmission options for the Honda Mobilio MPV will include a 5-speed manual gearbox and a CVT automatic. When launched in India, the Honda Mobilio will compete with the likes of compact MPVs such as the segment leading Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Chevrolet Enjoy. We can expect an aggressive pricing strategy by Honda as we have seen previously on the Amaze sedan, since localization level is high. So the Honda Brio platform consists of three body types in all, including a hatchback, sedan and the soon to be launched MPV.

    What is the dimension? Indonesian market already have Chevy Enjoy like MPV called Honda Freed which is more then 4 meters. And this one looks like Ertiga, may be of similar length.
