Maruti Ertiga rival Honda Mobilio MPV gets a good start in Indonesia
Honda Mobilio was unveiled at 2013 Indonesia International Motor Show held earlier in September 2013. The Brio based MPV has already stirred up a great deal of enthusiasm among buyers in the country.
Prices of the new Honda Mobilio start from 150 million Rupiah and go all the way upto 180 Rupiah (INR 8.40 lakhs to 10.09 lakhs) and is sold in the country through PT Honda Prospect Motors, the local Indonesian subsidiary of Honda.
For Indonesia, the Mobilio will be offered in a single engine option in the form of a 1.5 liter iVTEC producing 118 PS power and 144 Nm torque. The engine can be mated to either a 5 speed manual or CVT gearbox while Mobilio will be offered in three trim levels – S, E and E CVT. Mobilio will compete with Maruti Ertiga in the country.
India can expect to receive the Honda Mobilio only in 2014 where it will come in with a 1.5 liter EarthDreams diesel engine which also does duty in Honda Amaze.
