Available only in the RS spec.
Kah Motor, distributors for Honda cars in Singapore, showcased and launched the Honda Mobilio recently at the Singapore Motor Show. For the Singapore market, the Mobilio is sold exclusively in the RS trim.
Given the high taxation on personal cars, the Mobilio RS certainly doesn’t come cheap when you convert its price to INR. The base variant costs an equivalent of INR 59.38 lakhs (SGD 127,000), while the Luxe comes in at INR 60.78 lakhs (SGD 129,000).
The Mobilio sold in Singapore is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC engine which is capable of 120 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm. Both variants get a CVT gearbox. The MPV gets safety features like dual SRS airbags, ABS and EBD as standard.
Other features include 15-inch alloy wheels, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, leather upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 4-speakers, HDMI port, rear AC vents and reverse camera.
This being the RS variant, features like projector headlights with daytime running lights, a dual-chrome grille, aggressively-designed bumpers, rear spoiler and side skirts are also standard.
In the Indian market, the Mobilio RS is available only with the diesel engine. While we’re yet to get a confirmation, it is unlikely that Honda Cars India is exporting the Mobilio to Singapore.
