Honda Mobilio : Reviewed to a good extent
Honda Mobilio, a new seven-seater that promises space and flexibility, comfort and class-leading fuel efficiency.MPVs or multi-purpose vehicles will be the next volume drivers. Not our prediction, but something car makers have been telling us for a while. Now, though, they have started putting their money where their mouth is. We already have the super successful Toyota Innova roaming our roads for ages (and it has started to show its age). More recently, Maruti has done exceedingly well with its 5+2 seater, the Ertiga; an MPV that's clearly setting the benchmark in terms of sales.
We have had others too. There's the Enjoy from Chevrolet and the Evalia from Nissan. But neither has found significant takers. Clearly then, doing an MPV isn't the sure shot way up the success elevator. An MPV must also satisfy some basic needs - space and comfort, ease of driving, affordable running, and most crucially, upmarket styling.
Honda, the latest entrant in this space, is confident it has all these aspects and more, sorted with its new MPV, the Mobilio.
On the styling front, the Honda Mobilio has hit the jackpot. Not only is the Mobilio the most contemporary looking MPV in its class, it has that hint of premiums and sportiness that will have buyers swooning over it. The headlamp, the bonnet resembles that of the Brio and the Amaze. Moreover, the completely revised bumper with its aggressive design - particularly the lower half - gives the Mobilio a whole new character. It also runs 15in wheels and with a roofline that doesn't exactly look tall, this Honda MPV has a stretched and hunkered down stance. It might look low but it has a respectable and befitting - given our road condition - 189mm of ground clearance.
Good looks. Check. Interior space and flexibility. Check. Comfortable seating for seven people. Check. Diesel and petrol engine options. Check. Easy to drive. Check. As you can tell, the Honda Mobilio checks all the relevant boxes and more. It's a well thought out and well-executed MPV. In fact, it might just be the best buy in its class. All that remains now is its pricing, which we believe will be between Rs 6-9 lakh; a little more than the Ertiga, but significantly lower than the Innova.
