The facelift for the India-spec Mobilio could draw cues from the Indonesia-spec model.

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.
