Honda Mobilio RS features detailed in new official photos
With over 6,500 bookings already, Mobilio MPV is already touted as another success from Honda Car India this year. Launched at a starting price of Rs 6.49 lakhs, Honda Mobilio is offered in a choice of 7 variants – 3 petrol and 4 diesel.
The top variant is in the form of Mobilio RS, which is offered only in diesel trim, and is priced from Rs 10.86 lakhs, ex-showroom New Delhi. Considered expensive by potential buyers, here is why the Mobilio RS comes at a premium price tag.
On offer with the Mobilio RS are a list of features which are unique to the segment. To say a few, it comes with projector headlamps with LEDs, sporty chrome grille, RS logo, chrome door handles, fog lamp with chrome garnish, sporty alloy wheels, rear bumper with chrome, electric ORVM, and tailgate spoiler. These are the unique features of the Mobilio RS, which will not be offered in other Mobilio variants, even as accessories.
Speaking about performance of Mobilio RS, it remains same as the diesel Mobilio variant as there has been no change made to the engine output. The 1.5l iDTEC diesel Earth Dreams engine in Mobilio RS delivers 100 PS max power and 200 Nm max torque via a five speed manual gearbox to the front wheels. Mileage claimed by Honda is segment best at 24.2 kmpl. During our drive review of Mobilio, we recorded a mileage of 18 kmpl.
Honda claims Mobilio RS is for a unique set of buyers who would want to stand out from the crowd.
