Honda Cars India Ltd has launched the much-awaited 7-seater MPV, the Mobilio, at a starting price of Rs. 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)! This also launches a direct attack on Maruti’s Ertiga.
The icing on the cake is that the deliveries will start from today through the company’s extensive dealer network of 179 outlets in 114 cities across the country. Deliveries of the RS version will begin in September this year and Honda aims to have 230 dealerships in 150 cities by the end of the current financial year.
Mobilio is available in three trim levels each in the petrol and diesel models. The trim levels are designated as E, S, and V. The sporty-looking RS variant comes only in diesel though.
