Editorial Test Drive Review of Honda Mobilio

Mileage

Honda's first 7 seater MPV for India comes in the form of the Mobilio and is available in two engine options of a 1.5-litre petrol (from the City sedan) and a 1.5-litre diesel (from the Amaze and City sedans). Both the engine options get a standard 5-speed manual transmission only. The ARAI certified economy for the petrol version stands at a segment best 17.3kmpl while for the diesel, it is quoted as 24.2kmpl, again a segment best.

The Mobilio is based on the same Brio platform as the Amaze. However, in this case, the wheelbase has been extended by as much as 247mm over the Amaze and this liberates acres of room on the inside. The Mobilio is a genuine 7 seater with even the last row being comfortable for two average sized adults. As expected, the Mobilio comes with the same cabin design as the Amaze, however, the top end versions get wooden inserts and a touch screen audio system to spice up things. Space remains a strong point here and the second row can be adjusted for leg room. Both the second and third rows can also be reclined and everyone gets their individual bottle / cup holders across the rows.

On the outisde, the Mobilio looks like the Amaze as far as front treatment is concerned but Honda has cleverly given the Mobilio a different grille and a sporty looking bumper. The RS version futher looks bling with projector lamps, new bumpers, body kit etc. The Mobilio also gets taller 15-inch wheels as compared to 14 for the Brio / Amaze and this has also helped to bump up the ground clearance to 189mm. At the back, the Mobilio differs from the regular MPVs we see in India and does look pleasing to the eyes.

As of now, there is no AT on offer but Honda might introduce this at a later stage as per customer demand.

Take a look at the launch video here:

Honda Mobilio Interiors

The Mobilio has a longer wheelbase than the Amaze and this helps to liberate a lot of room on the inside. While the first two rows have ample space for large and tall adults, the last row is not bad and can seat two average sized adults with ease. The good part is that the second row can be adjusted for leg room / knee room and both the 2nd and 3rd row seats can also be adjusted for recline.
The design of the interiors remains same as the Amaze and this means the Mobilio gets a two tone color scheme. Now while the cabin is practical and airy, for a car that sells at over 10 lakh (on-road), the design seems a bit dated. In comparison, the Ertiga is much better. However, apart from this, the Mobilio scores high points. Big windows aid visibility and there are numerous bottle and cup holders around. For example, front passengers get bottle holders in the door and cup holders ahead of the gear lever. 2nd row passengers gets both bottle and cup holders in the door (they are usable) and the last row passengers get their own cup holders and mobile phone slots.
The top end version of the Mobilio will come with features like leatherite seat covers, touch screen infotainment system, sat nav, rear camera etc. However, there is omission of functions like auto-up for driver side window, auto lock of doors, a comprehensive driver info display (only fuel economy is shown) etc. Even the audio system sound average.



What we like
Space and practicality
What we don't like
Features functions could have been better

Honda Mobilio Interiors Details

Honda Mobilio Boot space

The boot space on the new Honda Mobilio MPV is very spacious. With both the rear seats folded it allows you store a vase amount of luggage. With all three seats up and being used the boot space is very little. But with the last row folded you can easily take luggage for all 5 people easily.

Honda Mobilio Speedometer

The speedometer on the Honda Mobilio is an analog unit and looks modern and fresh.

Honda Mobilio Gear lever

The gear lever is easy to hold on the new Mobilio MPV. It provides adequate grip and is easy to shift gears with this unit.

Honda Mobilio Cup holders

Honda Mobilio MPV has cup holders infront of the gear lever. It prevents your drinks from spilling over during a drive and keeps it steady.

Honda Mobilio Exteriors

The Mobilio is based on the Amaze and hence looks similar when viewed from the front. However, it gets a single slot but wide chrome grille and a new front bumper that looks nice. The length of the Mobilio is also longer and this is easily noticable. Wheel size has gone up to 15-inches with 185mm width as compared to 175 for Amaze and City and at the back, the Mobilio looks pretty impressive. Overall, its a nice looking MPV and that RS version makes the exteriors look stunning.
This RS version comes with different alloys, a complete body kit, projector lamps, day time running strip etc. This version is also being offered a new color exclusive to the RS only. The Mobilio also has a lower height which makes it look car like rather than van like.

What we like
Looks modern and appealing. RS version is a killer!
What we don't like
Same front design as the Brio - which costs almost half

Honda Mobilio Exteriors Details

Honda Mobilio Front design

Honda Mobilio Ground Clearance

The ground clearance of the new Honda Mobilio is 185mm which allows you to go over most speed breakers and potholes comfortably even when it is fully loaded.

Honda Mobilio Engine & Performance

The Honda Mobilio offers excellent performance from its 1.5-litre petrol engine that is a direct lift off from the Honda City. At 119PS, this motor puts out enough grunt to propel the MPV to serious speeeds. Infact, its a very rev happy motor and is a delight to push hard and drive fast. The petrol Mobilio is even faster than some of the sedans in its segment.
The diesel engine is the same as City and Amaze and offers very good low end juice for city use. There is enough torque flow at under 2000rpm and turbo lag is well controlled, something that the Ertiga suffers from. The diesel engine can be revved too and though it gets noisy, there is a lot of performance on tap. This engine is prone to typical diesel noise but NVH levels on the inside as well controlled.
Both the engines come mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission



What we like
Terrific performance from petrol, good city drive from diesel
What we don't like
Diesel can get noisy when pushed hard

Honda Mobilio Comfort & Suspension

The best part about the Mobilio when you drive is that it does not feel like a family MPV. Thanks to clever engineering and a low height, the Mobilio feels more like a car to drive in city traffic. The taller wheels have given it a high ground clearance and this is a boon for bad roads. Talking of which, the Mobilio tackles undulations pretty nicely and its only when you drive it over sharp edges do you feel the slightly stiff set-up. But this is helpful when the Mobilio is driven with a full load of 7 passengers.Spacious interiors also play a vital role in the overall comfort and further, big windows add to the airy feel. The Mobilio is also faily stable at high speeds and this is more true for the diesel version that has more weight on the front wheels. The petrol Mobilio has more vertical movement that the diesel model but as compared to the most other MPVs, the Mobilio fares very well at high speeds

What we like
Good comfort and excellent suspension set-u
What we don't like
Petrol version feels lighter at the front

Ertiga and Innova beater is here
By Posted on Jun,06,06 10:01 AM

Pros Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,Boring interiors

The Ertiga is the MPV choice under Rs 9 lac while the Innova is the king when it comes a MPV under 13-14 lac. But now, I feel, the Mobilio is here to demolish both these two MPVs by offering best of all the worlds. I did sit in the car at the Auto Expo and trust me, though the interiors dont look very jazzy, the space in the car for 7 people along with storage spaces makes it so nice for a family. And how can you neglect the 100PS diesel engine that will put to the shame other MPV with real world mileage of 15-16kmpl. Can't wait for this one to come to showrooms. It makes so much sense for people like me. Hope Honda works to bring down the cabin noise from the diesel engine which is a sore point in the Amaze sedan.
