Honda Mobilio MPV might be discontinued as hinted by some reports. The vehicle has been facing the insufficient demand for the past 6-8 months. This could be due to several reasons but the most prominent one is the rise of severe competition in the segment. The Mobilio has been facing the challenge from the Maruti Ertiga facelift which is offering ample amount of features at a reasonable price tag, while the low-cost Datsun Go+ is further making the things difficult. Mobilio was launched back in July 2014 and initially, it performed well in the market, but later on, craze for the car started diminishing. The Mobilio specs include 1.5-litre i-DTEC and 1.5-litre iVTEC engines that are both good in power and mileage. Despite such performance packed engines, the car is unable to attract the masses and situation are worsening by the day. If the demand continues to drop, Honda might also go for a heavy price cut.

Competent 7 seater
Excellent driving view
Honda’s first Indian MPV
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 speeds. In fact, it’s 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
Diesel Mileage 24.2 km
The Mobilio is offered in two engine options. Both these engines offer best in class fuel economy. The petrol 1.5-litre engine has a rated economy of 17.3kmpl as per ARAI and you can expect a real world economy of over 11-12kmpl in city and 16-18kmpl on the highways.
Petrol Mileage 17.3 km
The diesel engine gets a rated economy of 24.2kmpl and this motor will deliver over 15-16kmpl in city and 22-24kmpl on the highways at speeds between 90-100km/h.
