    Honda to manufacture Mobilio, Jazz in India
    Honda has been experiencing tremendous sales success with the launch of the new City that is further emphasized by the option of a diesel engine. The Japanese car maker is now gearing up to manufacture it’s new Mobilio multi-purpose vehicle at its Greater Noida facility in Uttar Pradesh to take on the MPV/MUV market in the country where the likes of the Toyota Innova and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga rule the roost at the moment.

    Based on the compact Honda Brio platform, the Mobilio is considerably larger than the Brio in profile and has a wheelbase of 2,650mm, which is 245mm longer than the Amaze’s and 305mm longer than the Brio’s. This combined with the large boot makes the Mobilio extremely practical, be it for carrying loads of luggage or seating seven passengers in total.

    Whats more, the Honda Mobilio will come with a choice of the company’s 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines, that will capitalize on the excise duty benefits for diesel engines smaller than 1,500cc and under 1,600 cc for petrol engines. Due to its seating capacity of seven people, the Mobilio is longer than four meters in length, as a result it will not be able to avail the excise duty benefits on small cars, much like the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Chevrolet Enjoy. As a result, expect prices for the new Honda Mobilio to range between Rs. 5.80 lakh to Rs. 8.25 lakh (ex-showroom) when it is launched here in India.
    And that’s not it for the year either as Honda will be launching the new Jazz towards the later part of the year in India. The new Honda Jazz is indeed a looker and will be even more premium than its predecessor. While this is a good thing, what Honda has to keep in mind is it’s pricing as the car has to be priced competitively in its segment, unlike last time.

    Honda will be manufacturing the third generation Jazz in the country at its new Tapukara plant in Rajasthan. Like the Amaze and City, the new Jazz too will be available with the company’s 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine developing 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque that will make it one of the most powerful diesel hatchbacks in its segment.

    The Honda Mobilio is slated to go into production in June 2014 while the third generation Honda Jazz is likely to hit the production lines a month later in July 2014. Honda should be looking to offer both cars with an aggressive marketing strategy that translates into attractive prices after the success it has tasted with both the new Amaze and City.
