MPVs for 2014

Although the Indian economic scene seems to be in a bit of a lull, the average middle class family is always looking to upgrade their standard of living in general. The most obvious upgrade for most families is that of their automobile. In recent times, the segments that have seen the most growth are the ones that offer both practicality and space at a price point that doesn’t burn a hole in one’s pockets i.e. the small SUV and MPV segments.

A Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV) does exactly what it sets out to do: carries a family in as much comfort as an average sedan, has the space to rival a large SUV and is just as practical as the family hatchback. In short, the MPV has become popular simply due to the fact that they are a fantastic value proposition to the typical price sensitive Indian buyer. Here are 5 new MPVs that should make it to our shores in 2014!

Honda Mobilio

Expected Launch: Late 2014

Expected Price: Between Rs 8-12 Lakh

Based on the Honda Brio hatchback and the Honda Amaze sedan, the Mobilio is Honda’s answer to the Maruti-Suzuki Ertiga and the soon to be launched Hyundai MPV. The Mobilio was officially introduced at the 2013 Indonesia International Motor Show and will be offered with seven seats.

The Honda Mobilio will be powered by Honda’s all-new 1.5 Litre i-Dtec engine which produces 100PS of peak power and 200Nm of peak torque. The Mobilio will also have a petrol option and will be powered by the 1.5 Litre i-Vtec engine that currently does duty in the Honda City. The Honda Mobilio might also be offered with a factory LPG/CNG option but details on that front seem to be a little sketchy.

The Honda Mobilio will be available in both manual and automatic versions with the Automatic expected to have features like paddle shifters.

At first glance, the Mobilio will look very similar to the Brio and the Amaze but will feature a larger grille with a more prominent chrome styling feature running across the front of the car. The rear though will be completely new with large tail lights and an angular recess to house the license plate. The floating D-Pillar and the kink in the window line along the side will help to break the visual bulk of the Honda Mobilio.

The Honda Mobilio will share its dashboard with Brio and Amaze although we assume the Mobilio will be offered with a two-tone beige interior so as to give it a slightly enhanced feel of luxury. Expect Mobilio to be priced between 8-12 Lakh when it is introduced in the second half of 2014. In fact, considering Honda#8217;s recent price strategies, we wont be surprised if a base version of the Honda Mobilio is priced even lower.
