Japanese car maker, Honda, will be launching the Mobilio in July this year. The production of the Honda Mobilio will be commencing in a couple of months. Honda had showcased the Mobilio at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2014.
Already launched in the Indonesian market, the Honda Mobilio is a 7-seater MPV. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the Honda Mobilio India launch. When launched in India, the Mobilio will compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Nissan Evalia, Ashok Leyland Stile and the Chevrolet Enjoy.
The Honda Mobilio MPV has a three rows of seats and can seat seven in sufficient comfort. Honda Mobilio reflects the car maker’s “Man Maximum Machine Minimum” philosophy and many reports suggest that the car is more spacious than the Ertiga. The Mobilio measures 4.4 metres in length and has a ground clearance of 185 mm, which is more than the ground clearance of the Amaze sedan and some pseudo SUV’s.
Powering the India spec Honda Mobilio will be the same 1.5 litre, 4 cylinderpot, 115bhp iVTEC petrol engine that powers the City sedan. Considering India’s affinity to diesel, the 1.5 litre iDTEC diesel engine will bring the major chunk of sales. This is the same diesel engine which powers the Amaze and City sedans and produces 100 PS of power while delivering an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 25+ kmpl.
It is being expected that the Honda Mobilio will go on sale in India for a starting price of around INR 6-7 lakhs.
