Honda has revealed the refreshed Mobilio MPV in Indonesia. The updates on the new Mobilio are purely cosmetic as mechanically it still carries the same set of powertrains. Moreover, the exterior is also unchanged while the interior cabin gets several new elements and features. As far as India launch is concerned, the Japanese automaker might launch it in the country by the end of this year.
Talking about the updates, the Brio-souced dashboard found in the ongoing model of Mobilio has gone for a toss in favour of an all-new dashboard, which is said to be derived from the yet-to-be-launched BR-V compact SUV. The interior theme remains to be dual-tone, albeit with several new elements. Just so you know, the range-topping Honda Mobilio RS, in all likelihood, would get an all-black interior layout. In addition, the centre console now comprises of a touch-screen infotainment system which also acts as the reverse parking camera. The steering wheel is retained from the current model, while A/C vents are now positioned a bit higher on the dash.
As said before, the exterior styling remains majorly unchanged, save for the newly-desinged alloy wheels and chrome highlights on the front bumper. Mechanically, it doesn't undergo any changes and continue to carry the same set of 1.5L engines. Honda Mobilio is at loggerheads with the Toyota Innova, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Renault Lodgy. In other news, Mobilio's arch rival Innova would be launched in an all-new avatar in India this year. But prior to launch, the company is showcasing the updated MPV at the 2016 Auto Expo in February in Greater Noida.
