Honda had said earlier that series production would be underway in the July-September period.

Spied here is the ‘V’ variant, that identifies the penultimate variant on the Brio/Amaze/City. Cars from the pilot production are generally utilized for the pre-launch media drive and marketing activities.

The Mobilio was unveiled at the 2014 Auto Expo in Greater Noida in February. The Ertiga rival will be launched with a 1.5-liter i-DTEC engine that delivers over 25 kmpl and 100 PS of power on the Amaze and City that it already services. A top Honda official had also said that the variant lineup would be similar to other Honda cars: petrol manual, petrol AT and diesel manual.

The Mobilio had its global premiere at the Indonesian International Motor Show in September last year. The car has been developed with resources in Japan and Thailand, targeting the Toyota Avanza, Daihatsu Xenia, Chevrolet Spin and the Maruti Ertiga.

The Mobilio launched in Indonesia in three variants – S, E, and E-Prestige – with the top-end model getting features such as Aux and USB ports, double blower aircon, one touch tumble seat, Eco Meter, electric power steering, dual SRS airbags, ABS+EBD, and a Modulo accessory pack.

    Honda need to rethink/redesign on middle door design. At middle door straight line is cut from first door to last row.

    From above pics – height of mobilio looks smaller than ertiga. Is it true? My main concern and question Mr RAJA is -out of ertiga and mobilio – which will be more overall solid and which will be more masculine looking??

    How will honda change its mobilio front from brio and amaze?? from front grili !!! ha ha ha

        Thanks Mr Raja for a prompt reply. Hope I too get such a prompt review from you once mobilio is launched. I sure wishes to buy mobilio but only after getting better reviews than ertiga.

        Thanks once again.

    1. Dear Dr. Dheeraj, if you need a bigger vehicle (travel with family often, needing more boot space, or extra row of seating), then the Mobilio is the car for you.
