Will carryover changes introduced in the Indonesia-spec Mobilio.
Autocar India reports that Honda Cars India will introduce a facelift to the Honda Mobilio, which is expected to go on sale later this year.
The changes to be introduced are likely to be identical to the ones seen in the mid-cycle update for the Indonesia-spec Honda Mobilio. The exterior will feature minor styling tweaks to the bumper, more chrome accents, and new alloy wheel designs.
Inside, the Brio-sourced dashboard will be replaced by a new design that we have recently seen in the new Honda Amaze and Honda BR-V. The instrument cluster would be a new three-pod setup, with one of them being a large MID in top-end grades. The HVAC system will now have automatic climate control, new buttons and a separate display.
There could be no changes made to the engine lineup. The current Mobilio is offered with a petrol and a diesel engine option. The 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol makes 119 PS (117.32 bhp) of power and 145 Nm of torque, while the 1.5-liter diesel does with 100 PS (98.59 bhp) and 200 Nm of torque. Both engines are available with 5-speed manual transmissions, while a CVT for the petrol variant may be in the cards.
