For India, we can be certain that the Mobilio will be offered with the 1.5-liter EarthDreams diesel engine.

The Mobilio is powered by the same 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine that is used on the Honda City. Just like the City, the Mobilio outputs 118 PS and 144 Nm of torque.

The prospective customers were also briefed about the Mobilio’s price which ranges from 150 to 180 million Indonesian Rupiah (INR 8.41 lakhs to INR 10.09 lakhs).

The Mobilio is expected to launch in India next year and it is official that the 1.5-liter EarthDreams diesel engine would also be offered here.

    The Honda Mobiio when launched in India would become yet another huge success story like the Amaze. I’m sure Honda is set to create new benchmarks with this launch.

    Having said that, I’m disappointed with the design. While the rear looks majestic the front looks toy like. It just doesn’t gel together.
