With Kapil Sharma endorsing Mobilio, Honda has made sure that attention of every auto aficionado in the country has been captured. Now, as bookings open officially, Honda has revealed yet another ad. Though this time it does not feature Mr Sharma, it does tell you a lot more about the car.
To be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options, the soon to be launched Mobilio has been designed keeping in mind internal space and mileage. In a three row seating arrangement, space is at a premium due to scooped seat backs that contribute to more knee room, curved dashboard for passenger legroom, concave door linings for added side space and redesigned roof lining for comfortable head clearance. Boot space is extensive, capable of occupying supplementary baggage, making the Mobilio ideal for long distance travel.
Claiming to return best fuel efficiency in its segment, Honda Mobilio receives a 1.5 liter i-VTEC engine also seen on board Honda City which offers 119 PS peak power and 145 Nm peak torque. This engine is capable of fuel efficiency of 17.3 kmpl while being mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Mobilio will also receive a i-DTEC engine offering 100 PS power and 200 Nm torque. This one too is offered with the same manual gearbox, and delivers mileage of 24.2 kmpl. Automatic transmission is not on offer.
Pre bookings have opened at company dealerships on a down payment of INR 50,000, delivery periods could vary depending on variant and color. Safety features on board Honda Mobilio will include ABS and EBD, besides dual front airbags, steering mounted audio controls and electrically adjustable wing mirrors. A 6.1” infotainment system with reverse camera and faux wood center panel will also be present while the Mobilio goes on sale later this month at an expected price between INR 7-12 lakhs.
