Honda recently came up with an MPV(multi-purpose vehicle). Honda Mobilio is a mid-sized MPV available in 7 colors. It is a people carrier – of course a very important one, the best part about Honda Mobilio is its practicality. It is a spacious 7-seater vehicle. High attention is paid to space management.
The thickness of the seats is reduced and the front-seat back is scooped out to create additional room for the middle row passengers. So much stressing over space management has paid of really well.
The interior is highly comfortable and practical. It offers enough space for two medium sized suitcase in the boot. The chrome grill and front bumper gives it an aggressive look. The design at the back is highly attractive. The lamps at the back are smaller similar to that of Honda City.
Getting to the engine, with an output of 116bhp and 145Nm the petrol engine is the 1.5-litre version of the i-VTEC. The 1.5-litre EarthDreams i-DTEC powers the diesel versions. Honda Mobilio petrol gives a mileage of 17.3 kmpl. The diesel engine is anyways better than that of petrol.
