Following the Mobilio’s launch in Indonesia earlier this month, Japanese carmaker Honda is now prepping to roll out its latest 7-seater MPV in the Indian market late next month. And according to latest reports doing rounds on the Internet, it is said that the pre-bookings for the highly anticipated Mobilio MPV is slated to commence early next month, while the unofficial pre-bookings have already started at some Honda dealerships.
Last week, Honda had kick-started the marketing and promotional activities for the Mobilio, wherein the MPV was seen on display in various shopping malls across the country. The purpose of the exercise is to give the potential customers an early preview of the car, while keeping the details and specifications of the MPV still under wraps.
As a refresher, Honda Mobilio will be offered in India with a 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine producing 119PS and 145Nm of peak torque and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine producing 100PS and 200Nm of peak torque. In the Indian market, the Honda Mobilio MPV, will give strong competition to the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Toyota Innova, Mahindra Xylo and the Nissan Evalia. The MPV will be manufactured at Honda’s new facility in Rajasthan.
