Honda Mobilio Launched against Ertiga for a Price of Rs 6.49 Onwards


Honda has changed it’s game in India after making a Jazzy error. The introduction of a diesel engine, launching a small car and a budget sedan has helped sales numbers big time, so much so, it is close to being the third largest car maker in India. Honda Cars India has finally launched the Mobilio MPV in the country at a very competitive starting price of Rs. 6.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Based on the Brio hatchback, the Mobilio is the third vehicle to share the platform after the Brio and Amaze and is offered with the choice of petrol and diesel engine options

The Mobilio shares its front fascia with the Brio hatchback giving a soft and pleasing appearance, while the transformation into an MPV is visible at the side profile, starting from the B-pillar. At the rear though, the Mobilio sports the new Honda City inspired tail lights that certainly add to a more upmarket appeal to the MPV. On the inside, the cabin has been extended to offer maximum space to its occupants.

The Honda Mobilio is equipped with features such as a 2-DIN audio system with USB and AUX connectivity, manual air-con with roof mounted vents for rear passengers and alloy wheels. The MPV does miss out on automatic climate control, which should have been on offer at least on the top end variant along with Bluetooth connectivity. Customers can opt to retrofit the AVN package that adds a touchscreen system with navigation, reverse parking camera screen and the audio system at an additional cost from the dealer.

All the Diesel variants will be powered by a 1.5 litre, DOHC, i-DTEC engine which develops 100 ps of power and 200 Nm of torque., while the Petrol engine is a 1.5 litre, SOHC, i-VTEC unit that develops 119 ps of power and 145 Nm of torque. Fuel-efficiency wise the Diesel Mobilio is rated for an Arai tested 24.2 kmpl while the petrol is rated for 17.9 kmpl. The cabin has been designed to emulate the feeling of being inside a Private Jet, spacious and comfortable. The Mobilio has a turning radius of 5.2m, which makes driving this vehicle in the city a breeze.

Safety tech on the Mobilio include dual front airbags with ABS available on the top-end variants, while stopping performance comes from front discs and rear drum brakes. Honda has also offered the Mobilio in RS trim which gets a host of sporty bits on the outside, including projector headlights, all round body kit, sportier wheels, rear spoiler, etc. The RS variant is only offered with a diesel engine and deliveries for the same will commence in September. Honda will commence deliveries of regular Mobilio variants from today. This MPV has been specially developed for Asian markets and has sold 46,000 units in Indonesia.
