The Honda Mobilio and the Nissan Evalia are powered by 1.5-litre diesel engines, the Chevrolet Enjoy and the Maruti Eritga get the same 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced motor but in different tuning states, while the Toyota Innova employs the biggest engine in the segment, a 2.5-litre unit. In terms of power output, the Innova tops the chart at 102 PS while the Mobilio comes close at 100 PS. The Enjoy generates the least power at 74.8 PS. Save for the Enjoy which develops a torque of 175.2 Nm, all the other MPVs put out 200 Nm.

All models in the comparo come equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission. The Mobilio, Evalia and the Ertiga send power to the front wheels while the Enjoy and the Innova are rear wheel driven. The Toyota MPV is the only model to be underpinned by a ladder-frame chassis while the rest adopt a monocoque frame.

In dimensions, the Innova is the longest at 4,585 mm while the Ertiga emerges as the shortest MPV at 4,265 mm. The Innova also has the longest wheelbase at 2,750 mm while the Mobilio has the shortest at 2,652 mm.

At a starting price of INR 9.97 lakhs, the Innova’s range is the most expensive of the lot while the Enjoy’s range which starts at INR 6.98 lakhs is the most affordable MPV (both prices are ex-showroom Delhi).

While the Nissan Evalia is available only with a diesel engine, the rest offer petrol options, and let’s admit it, for formality. In case of the Innova, the petrol engine is available only in the pre-facelift model.

The Innova’s 2.0-litre engine produces the highest power and torque output of 132 PS and 181 Nm respectively while the Ertiga’s 1.4-litre motor puts out the lowest figures at 95 PS and 130 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard across all the models.

    Innova fuel efficiency is N/A in both tables given by you. As a user let me tell you that diesel gives average 10-11km per litre in Delhi and about 13km per litre on highway.

  2. Soumen says:

    Honda will cannibalize all others. Innova may be of different segment, but power, fuel efficiency much less and this segment will be ruled by corporates and travel agents would buy best value engineered product. Honda Mobilio already have 5800 booking, they have come out heavily in Indonesia.
    I think this will be another excellent success like Honda City

  3. Partha says:

    whatever ……with the launch price Honda has “jazzed” the Mobilio.

  4. Aravind says:

    Though people tend to compare, its better to mention that Innova is in different segment itself.. so that readers might take informed decision..

    Spacewise, Innova is far bigger car where 3 person can sit in 2nd and 3rd rows comfortably.. but other cars, its not the case.

    Hi Nithyanandh,
    The diesel comparo table has the engine type as “petrol” under the specifications column.

    1. Hello Shamanth, thanks so much for pointing this out. We’ve fixed it.

    may be mobilio is little smaller than innova

  7. Joby says:

    Innova’s thrid seat travel is good. I have enjoyed it even though I near 6 ft….

    We shud have a comfort rating factor for each seat position during travel for all cars mentioned. that will reveal the secret

  8. Anand says:

    I have a question, Mobilo’s wheel base is less than Ertiga. How they managed the third row seat ? Because when I saw Ertiga’s wheelbase on papers i really impressed as it was 10mm less than Innova. But when it comes reality, I didn’t like Ertiga’s third row space. It is too cramped.

    1. Anjan Ravi says:

      The interior packaging of the Mobilio is pretty good. The dashboard has been pushed to the front and the seats are slimmer.

      1. Gokulraj GK says:

        The fact that the dashboard looks like it was an after thought is gonna turn down consumers like me. I wish they had the dash board like the one in the new Honda City which would have been a killer !

      2. I hear this from some of our other readers also. CVT option is another request. Hope Honda is listening.
