It seems that Japanese automobile manufacturer Honda has silently discontinued the Mobilio MPV in India. Although Honda Car India has not made any official announcement on the same as yet, the company has removed the model from their official website.
Launched in 2014, the Mobilio was built on the same platform as the Brio. A glance at Honda’s sales report in the past few months suggests that the Japanese car maker has not sold a single unit of the Mobilio since the BS-IV emission norms came into effect from April 1, 2017.
A rival to the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the Mobilio did not witness a satisfactory response in the market even after the company introduced a few new variants in its line-up. In January this year, Honda launched a facelift of the Mobilio which was sold in markets such as Indonesia. This facelift model however, did not make it to our shores.
The Honda Mobilio was available with two engine options: a 1.5-litre i-Vtec petrol engine and a 1.5-litre i-Dtec diesel engine. The petrol unit produced 119 PS of power and 145 Nm of torque while the diesel unit produced 100 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. Transmission duties were taken care of by a five speed manual transmission on both the engines.
