The dealerships of Japanese car maker Honda have begun accepting bookings for their new Mobilio MPV. Customers who are interested in purchasing this car can book it for a sum of INR 50,000. Deliveries will commence on the 23rd of July.
One can expect this 7 seater MPV to priced at a slightly higher level than one of its main competitors, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, but the Honda Mobilio will bring with it Honda’s solid reliability and several other factors. Powering the Mobilio will be either the 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder i-DTEC engine that develops 98.6 bhp or the 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder petrol engine that produces a peak power output of 117 bhp. Both these engines will get only a 5 speed manual transmission.
The car also boasts of a very roomy interior, a pretty good list of features and a fuel efficiency of 24.2 kpl for the diesel variant. Honda is fast catching up and could very well become India’s third largest car maker in the near future. Bringing in the heavy artillery such as the new Mobilio is a clear step towards that goal.
