When it comes to the Honda Mobilio MPV, the Indonesian market gets the car and its updates before India. The 2017 facelift of the Mobilio adds a dose of brawn and style to the meek-looking MPV to help it fit well into the competition.

The Mobilio finally ditches the bug-eyed headlamps for the swanky pair of rectangular eyes that sweep back with the fender contours. The grille looks larger especially with the underlining chrome slat below the Honda badge. The blacked out lamps complements the black inserts of the air dam on the front bumper. Being a facelift, the body shell is the same and hence is the profile.

The interior is the same as we have in the BR-V in India and there are hardly any changes. The equipment list will be continue in its current form. As for the engines, the Indonesian model gets the same engine options as we have in India. It has the 1.5-litre petrol i-Vtec that churns out 115bhp of power works well with the five-speed manual and the CVT automatic gearbox options. The frugal 1.5-litre i-Dtec engine develops 100bhp of power and comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

There is a slim chance of this Mobilio facelift making it to India because with the changes, it looks too similar to the Honda BR-V except for the peripheral cladding. Also, in India, the BR-V is performing much better than the Mobilio and bringing the facelift might hurt the BR-V sales. We do like the new look of the Mobilio and its adaptation on the BR-V might work in Honda’s favour.
