Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) set a new record with over 3,000 all-new Mobilio units sold in the country since its debut in April 2015. With this sales achievement, the Mobilio has already earned its place as HCPI’s second best-selling nameplate among its 13-model line-up, and contributed a significant 25 percent in HCPI’s 2015 sales.
The all-new Mobilio is Honda’s first seven-seater multi-purpose utility vehicle. It was carefully developed to fit and satisfy the needs of the Asian market, which has greatly contributed to its strong appeal to Filipino customers. It stands out among other vehicles with its modern and young styling, advanced technology and comfortable sedan-like ride.
Designed to be an ideal family vehicle, the interior of the all-new Mobilio embraces a “prime comfort” theme showcased through its remarkably comfortable and spacious cabin. Following Honda’s design philosophy of “Man Maximum, Machine Minimum,” the Mobilio provides ultimate comfort and satisfaction to all passengers on board with generous space for headroom, legroom and knee clearance. This also allows for more flexibility to accommodate different hauling needs, and to further maximize the vehicle’s functionality and cargo space.
Boasting a powerful yet fuel efficient engine, the all-new Mobilio is powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine that delivers maximum power output of 120 PS (118 horsepower) at 6,600 revolutions per minute and 145 Newton-meters of torque at 4,600 rpm, mated with either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission developed under the Earth Dreams Technology.
With the introduction of the all-new Mobilio, Honda has reintroduced one of its sporty grades, the RS or Road Sailing design. Honda’s RS design is integrated in the all-new Mobilio’s top-of-the-line variant to present Honda’s first multi-purpose utility vehicle with a sportier and a more sophisticated character. The exterior of the all-new Mobilio RS sports seven exclusively designed parts, including the front grille, front bumper, 15-inch alloy wheels, side sill garnish, tailgate spoiler, rear bumper with exhaust pipe finisher and the RS emblem.
To further provide ownership experience to Honda’s valued customers, two new Modulo variants are also available for the all-new Mobilio. The 1.5 V CVT Modulo Platinum includes a front grille, door visor, shark fin antenna, door handle cover, rear bumper garnish, trunk tray, sports pedal and side step garnish. On the other hand, the 1.5 V CVT Modulo Utility consists of a front grille, front and rear bumper protector, seatback holder, convenience hook, seatback utility box, cargo storage and sports pedal.
The Mobilio is also equipped with safety features that certainly assure peace of mind to all its passengers. It is built with driver and passenger SRS airbags, anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, seat belt reminder, ISOFIX and immobilizer. These safety features have been deemed remarkable after being awarded as the 2015-2016 Best Safety Features of MPV from the Auto Focus Media’s Choice Awards.
Along with the positive response the all-new Honda Mobilio received from the market, it has also been awarded as the 2015 Best Compact Multi-purpose Vehicle at the Car of the Year-Philippines Awards ceremony.
The Mobilio is priced at P807,000 for the 1.5 E MT, P877,000 for the 1.5 V CVT, P895,000 for the 1.5 V CVT Modulo Utility, P903,000 for the 1.5 V CVT Platinum and P967,000 for the 1.5 RS Navi CVT. The 1.5 RS Navi CVT in White Orchid Pearl is priced at P987,000.
