  3. It's just beautiful. The previous model had those guppy eyed looks that made it just absolutely fugly with a capital fug. This one however... I just love it. It looks so much better than the Jazz or City, in my opinion.

  4. Did they just put in the BR-V's interior in there?

    Now the V trim's at 909k...80k more and you cross into BR-V territory.

    Honda's lineup is kind of confusing now.

    1. Exactly what I was thinking when i knew about this model.

    2. You're essentially paying the 90k for a higher ride which is just a few inches. Totally unnecessary. The Mobilio's ground clearance is already higher than a sedan.

  5. It's much better looking compared to the old. Now it's the brv's turn, the back is very ugly.

    What is the ground clearance of this new Mobilio, and as compared to the Innova?

  7. I remember the time when Honda fanboys bash Mazda's design for having the same face as well as their dislike for the infotainment screen's placement. But after 2 years, Honda is doing the same.

    The mobilio improved in terms of looks but they now look too similar with the BRV. It looks like they are in the same category now.

  8. Any info as to the water wading depth of this new Mobilio?

  9. Sana they keep it n the low cost segment - competing with Ertiga and Avanza, all below 1M.

    With the price it's asking now, lalo na sa V and RS trims, parang wala nang compelling reason... Kaya nang mag BR-V, o kahit Innova, so why bother?

    Then this model will die a quiet death.
