The chrome grille too is slightly different (twin slat) and so is the fog light encasing. From the leaked spy shot, it seems that LED DRLs are also on offer along with new stylish alloys. Tyre size remains the same at 185/65 R15. Interiors too are modified to match the aggressive exterior look.

More details, and price will be revealed at the launch on 19th June.

As far as India launch is concerned, Honda is yet to launch the Mobilio here. Once it is launched in India (July 2014), Honda plans on gauging the market and then take a call on launching the Mobilio RS in India.
