Good.

Please do check the gear lever as to what is written on it. Many here are waiting for it, specially the i-DTEC if displayed.

Post a lot of pictures too.

That is great news scopriobharath. We all would be seeing the Mobilio through your eyes. So as Anurag has mentioned above, click as many pictures as possible, preferably with a person being seated in each of the seats. We all are looking forward to your contribution here.

  • How low (if at all) Is the 3rd row seating really
  • Enough said about quality/thickness of seats, How do they feel

You forgot the main thing - Picture of the dashboard (clear one in natural effect)

Features available in all variants, ask the guys who are there on the display who hopefully would have an idea.

Adding my 2 cents:
  • Head room in the 3rd row of seat for a 5 footer
  • Tumble mechanism for second row of seats
  • Luggage space with third row up, third row half folded and then completely folded.
  • Comfort level in front seats
Will let you know if I can think of more items.

Well I had seen the diesel version in Faridabad. V model to be precise. It had exactly 6 gears. 5 forward and 1 reverse. Some pictures attached.

Mobilio is on display at Phoenix, Lower Parel. On display is a petrol variant which is definitely not the top variant because this one did not have a touch screen infotainment system.

As far as gears are concerned, its 5+1 as shown in one of the following pics. Mobilio looks good from side and rear, the front looks same as Amaze so I found it a bit boring. The sheet metal looks to be thin and doors are light and thin. Quality of plastics used in the dashboard and switch is not much to talk about.

Front seats are comfortable with perfect positioning of gear lever. Driver seat comes with height adjuster and the steering had tilt feature. Windows are nice and large giving a good view of outside.

Row 2 seats were also comfortable with good leg room. In fact the seats in 2nd row has recline feature as well which is quite useful. Row 3 is a complete NO for adults. Couple of hours ride sitting in row 3 and one will need a wheel chair for few days... Ok I exaggerated that a bit but it has very low sitting, specially tall or fat people will have a tough time.

Fold 3rd row seats and you have a large boot for a month long vacation. The rear from outside looks a stunner and the good part is that from the inside it has a cover which means all the wires and mechanical parts are covered unlike Amaze.

While Mobilio should do well and sell about 4-5k units per month, surprisingly there were not too many people at the stall. I could comfortably sit inside the car on drivers seat for good 10 minutes without anyone waiting outside for me to get up. Complete contradiction to what I experienced during EcoSport soft launch.

Guys, today I was watching the Overdrive show on CNBC TV18 (English) and then on CNBC Awaz (Hindi). Both the shows confirmed that next week they will be bringing the first drive report of the Honda Mobilio. It seems the media drive is happening in Nasik. Can the moderators confirm if this news is true and if TBHP has been invited for this media drive? If yes then when can we expect the official TBHP review of the Mobilio.

Overdrive has already reviewed this car, although the Indonesian model. Here you go


Going by the video review, they say that it is not a true 7-seater like Innova but like Ertiga. So, dethroning Innova is going to be a very, very tough thing for Honda.

I guess you are mistaken as the video you have posted is of Autocar!

Dethroning the Innova is not possible but I want to see what it does to the Ertiga and vice versa.

I believe you have mistaken the Autocar review as OD review. If you read my message carefully, I have mentioned that the media drive is going to happen somewhere this week in Nasik city of Maharashtra state. The location seems to be a bit odd though.

Can the mods please pitch in over here and confirm if this is true or I made a mistake in interpretation?
