The Honda Mobilio was snapped on Indian roads for the first time by Facebook user Swapnil Mhaske. The car seen here is the diesel variant, identified by the ‘i-DTEC’ badge on the bootlid. The trim level is identified as ‘V’, which would be one of the higher variants of the car.

The Honda Mobilio is spotted on Indian roads for the first time.

The car sports foglights, alloy wheels, rear wiper and a reverse camera which is tucked above the registration plate enclosure. The Indian-spec Mobilio seems identical in looks to the Indonesian model.

The Mobilio will launch next month with a petrol and diesel engine.

The Mobilio is announced to launch in India next month with a petrol and diesel engine. The petrol engine is expected to be the new City’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder motor producing about 119 PS and 145 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT. The diesel engine would be the 1.5-liter i-DTEC producing 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque in the new City and Amaze. The diesel will come with a manual only.

The MPV will be price positioned between the Ertiga and Innova.

The Mobilio, based on the Brio platform, is a three-row people carrier set to challenge the Maruti Ertiga. Price wise though, the Mobilio is expected to slot between the Ertiga and Toyota Innova as it is larger and more powerful than Eritga. In India, the MPV segment contributes to 12,000 units/month according to the data released by Honda.

    I most certainly agree with the fact that bigger tyres would have been better!

    Rear hang seems touch too much, atleast bigger tyres would have done wonders to make rear look propotionate

    Hopefully the gear ratios are good for cruizing..above 120kmph..they should have taken 6 speed gearbox from the city or atleast the 6th gear ratio from city ..to allow mobilio to cruize and achieve their best mileage on highway speeds.

    MPV’s should be comfortable. looks come secondary in this category. Would have been great if mobilio was priced same as ertiga. Indian customers will pay for the extra comfort though.

    But a sensible design. Designers usually leave out flamboyance while drawing an MPV. Instead, they place greater emphasis on criteria like utilisation of space and load-carrying capability. Taking that perspective into account, the Mobilio appears to have made the grade. Of course looks remain a subject of personal opinion.
