The 2014 Honda Mobilio will appeal to the family man who likes to carry his loved ones along every where he goes. There will be times though, when kids will be busy with their homework, the wife will be busy managing the universe and the elders might be out for a yoga session. During such times, you might feel like visiting your younger self. Honda realises such mid-life crisis situations and for this very reason, the Honda Mobilio will be launched in an ‘RS’ guise. So as you try and figure out the best way to hide that grey strand, we explain the differences between ‘Cutting’ and ‘Masala’ tea.
- The headlights, to start with, are more detailed and look much sharper. They feature bi-focal projectors, daytime running led’s and the indicators are positioned differently
- The big slab of chrome on the grille is a double-decker unit in comparison to the normal version.
- Bumpers are new, a more aggressive design which includes a lower honeycomb mesh grille for that added belligerence in attitude.
- Fog lamp housings are also new, with thick black surrounds and a chrome lining at the bottom.
- The lower tip of the bumper looks much sharper too.
- The ‘RS’ version features side-skirts and door handles have been dipped in chrome.
- Turn indicators on the sides are integrated into the ORVM’s .
- The ‘RS’ features a new set of Alloys, the size and styling of which isn’t too appealing in our opinion.
- At the rear, the sharper theme of the front bumper is carried over. There is additional chrome lining across the width on the lower part of the bumper.
- The side skirts in profile merge into the rear bumpers to complete the sporty look.
- Honda has provided an edgier rear spoiler with an integrated stop lamp.
- A chrome exhaust tip and the ‘RS’ badging on the tail-gate finish things off.
On the inside you will discover faux wood garnish, leatherette upholstery, illuminated door sills and a touchscreen infotainment system. Mechanically, the car should be the same as it’s commoner sibling and will be available in both diesel and petrol options. Take a good look, will go well with that newly bought body hugging shirt and that fancy bicycle you plan to attach on the roof rails. We will bring you a comprehensive review of this MPV, in the meanwhile you can read our first impressions of the car, here.
