Honda Mobilio Website

Honda has taken an early start in promoting the Mobilio in India and updated its Indian website with the images and details of the MPV. While details about the launch have not been mentioned on the website, Honda India had earlier announced that the Mobilio will be launched in the second half of the year between July-September and will take on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Chevrolet Enjoy in the segment. After the super success of the Amaze compact sedan and City saloon, Honda is quite optimistic about the Mobilio in the Indian market.

The Honda Mobilio is based on the Brio platform and carries the visual looks of the hatchback as well. Honda has certainly made the Mobilio look very sporty and premium with the sharp lines and the big bold chrome strip at the front. The rear on the other hand is quite similar to the new City and certainly looks sharp and sporty on the MPV. On the inside, the interiors are expected to boast top notch quality, while sharing several components with Honda’s other vehicles. The Mobilio gets 2+3+3 seating layout, while the rear seats can be folded for enhancing luggage space.

The Mobilio will be powered by petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol unit also powering the City will be found under the hood. The engine is capable of producing 119 PS of power and 145 Nm of torque and will be mated to a 5-speed manual and 7-speed CVT gearbox. The diesel duties will come from the acclaimed 1.5-litre Earth Dreams i-DTEC engine, good to produce 100 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. This motor is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The 1.5-litre engine also powers the Amaze and the City in India.

Honda is expected to commence production of the Mobilio by June this year at Honda’s Greater Noida plant. The plant will produce around 45,000 units of the MPV annually. Prices for the Mobilio are expected to commence around Rs. 6.5 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the base petrol model in the country. You can also checkout our first look review of the Honda Mobilio HERE.
