Posted on: Apr 7, 2014 - 2:52pm IST

Honda Cars India is gearing up to produce two of its new offerings, the Mobilio and Jazz. A report on Autocar Professional says that production of the Mobilio will commence in June this year at Honda India’s Greater Noida plant.

The Honda Mobilio will rival the Maruti Ertiga when it launches in the second financial quarter of this year.

To begin with, Honda will produce about 45,000 units of the Mobilio annually. The market launch of the Maruti Ertiga battler will take place in the second quarter of this financial year (July-September period). The Mobilio will be sold with a petrol and a diesel engine option. The petrol motor would most likely be the new City’s 1.5-liter engine which produces 119 PS of power and 145 Nm of torque.

A Honda official said the variant tree would be like other Honda cars in India – the petrol model will get a manual and an automatic gearbox option, while the diesel would be a manual. The diesel Mobilio will be powered by the 1.5-liter i-DTEC engine which produces 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque. Honda has the option of using a 5-speed manual or 6-speed manual transmission for the diesel.

The second launch for Honda India this fiscal is the new Jazz. Production of the Jazz will commence at Honda’s Tapukara facility as early as July this year, according to Autocar. The production volume is estimated at 20,000 units per annum. The new Jazz, like the Mobilio, will be offered with a petrol and diesel option.

The report completely contradicts Honda India who had announced that the Jazz would not come in 2014.

    1. Mobilio will be launched before September. We are not sure about the price or the other details at this time.

    Hi Anjan,

    Could you please advise on any expected compact SUVs to be launched with specs like that of Ford Ecosport. To be specific:

    Around 100 – 110 PS of Power
    Around 1.5 L of engine
    Around 3.99 m of Length
    Priced somewhere around 5.5-7 Lakhs ex-showroom for Base model.


    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      Hi SS,

      If you’re specific about the sub-4m length, you need to look out for the Mahindra S101 compact SUV which is coming next year. It’ll likely satisfy all your requirements that you mentioned.

      Another mini SUV matching your requirements is the VW Taigun, which isn’t expected until 2016.

    Hi Anjan,

    What options can one have for MPV’s in India 2014?



    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      Hi Devang,

      Clearly 2014 will see the launch of the Honda Mobilio. If you’re willing to wait until 2015, we may see the Lodgy MPV from Dacia.

    Hi anjan
    I want to buy a mid range MPV .is Hondas mobilio a worthy vehicle.I want to know does it have the same features as shown in Indonesian vehicle(bcz of Indian taxes)

    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      Hi Sandeep,

      The Mobilio will certainly be an MPV to watch out for. While the features for the Indian model are unconfirmed, we’re sure that the diesel engine will offer near class-leading efficiency and the car will be attractively priced. Suggest you to wait for it.

    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      Hi Gourav,

      The Xcent is the better car overall and is worth the money.

  7. Vignesh says:

    Hey Anjan…this report comes in as a sweet surprise for all those waiting for the new Jazz.

    However, I guess, this is not an official announcement from Honda. Is this based on speculation or insider information? Any clue?

    I wish this turns out to be true and turn out to be the miracle all Jazz fans were hoping to happen 🙂

    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      Hi this is based on industry sources. As you mentioned Honda have not made any official announcement yet.

  8. Ajay Pal says:
