2014 Honda Mobilio
Yes!! We all were waiting for this MPV eagerly and finally it has been launched in the Indian market today. I am talking about the Honda Mobilio MPV which was launched by the Japanese auto giant today.
The demand for the MPV’s suddenly picked up its pace and there are already some of the interesting products present in the Indian market, for we have the popular Toyota Innova which still sells like Hot cake or the recently launched Ertiga which has become the worthy competitor to the popular Innova and is from the house of one of the most popular and trustworthy car manufacturers of India Maruti Suzuki.
Now, we even saw Datsun who unveiled their new GO+ MPV, based on the GO hatchback which was recently launched in the Indian market, at a Motor Show in Indonesia. To keep the competition hot and to counter attack the revived brand, Honda unveiled the Mobilio that follows the footsteps of most MPVs like the Ertiga and the GO+, by borrowing the platform and looks from their hatchback.
We already are quite aware of the fact that most auto manufacturers use the Indonesian platform to launch their MPVs as it is one of the most important MPV markets of the world. The Honda Mobilio will be the first model from Honda that will compete in the low priced MPV segment, which happens to be the best selling category in Indonesia. Although the front face looks a bit similar to the Honda Brio, things look different as soon as you set your sight to its sides and rear. It does a better job of setting itself apart, unlike the Datsun GO+ that looks like an elongated GO.
So let’s find out all the details of this new Mobilio MPV from the Japanese auto giant Honda and also find out whether it has what it takes to take on its rivals in the Indian market?
