The Honda Mobilio will launch in a few months.

The Mobilio will be available with a petrol and diesel engine. The petrol motor, a four-cylinder 1.5-liter i-VTEC, is expected to be carried over from the new City. In the new City, this engine produces 119 PS and 145 Nm of torque. Expect gearbox options to be a 5-speed manual and a CVT with 7 stepped ratios.

The diesel Mobilio will get its power from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-DTEC engine, seen in the Amaze and new City. This engine is good for 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque, and comes with a 5-speed manual on the Amaze and a 6-speed manual on the City.

      Well sir, I too don’t prefer low seating position.
      But that is entirely personal.
      The Ciaz seems to be a good VFM C seegment sedan.

    Hi Anjan, IAB has covered Mobilio in Auto Expos in Greater Noida and Indonesia. I am very keen to buy Mobilio – top end model. I have a few questions:

    1. Does the top end model come with reverse parking camera?
    2. Does it have driver seat height adjust?
    3. Does the steering have rake and reach adjust?

    Thanks

      Hi Kapil

      1. There is no information about that. Reverse camera can however be fitted to any car.

      2. Yes it will come with seat height adjuster.

      3. Going by the Amaze, tilt steering will be offered.

        Hi Anjan,

        Two more question on the Mobilio:

        1. Is it’s ground clearance higher than the Amaze and City?
        2. Is its width exactly the same as Amaze or is it going to be a bit wider?

      2. Anjan Ravi says:

        Hi Kapil,

        1. The GC of the Mobilio (Indonesia spec) is 189 mm which makes it higher than both.
        2. The width of the Mobilio is 1,683 mm as compared to the Amaze which is 1,680 mm.

    I would rather call it Ugly outside, drab inside.
