Auto Expo Live – Honda Mobilio makes Indian debut [Images Updated]
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Honda showcased the Mobilio MPV at the Auto Expo today. Unveiled in Indonesia last September, the Mobilio is a three-row, seven-seat MPV based on the Brio’s platform.
Not only does the MPV share it’s front fascia with the Brio, but the dashboard and instruments inside are replicated from the Brio/Amaze as well.
For India, Honda will launch the Mobilio this year (next fiscal year). The MPV will be available with a petrol and a diesel engine. While the petrol motor could be the Honda City’s 1.5-liter i-VTEC which puts out 119 PS and 145 Nm of torque, the diesel motor will be the 1.5-liter i-DTEC which produces 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque.
While the diesel will come with a manual transmission, the petrol could be offered in a CVT apart from a 5-speed manual gearbox. Top-end variants of the MPV will feature dual front airbags, ABS, alloy wheels, steering integrated controls, rear wash/wipe and defogger as standard.
