The Mobilio MPV that has been launched at the Auto Expo 2014 will further widen the portfolio of Honda. The car is said to be based on the Brio platform, which will now have a suitable length wheelbase and also free space in order to add the third row of seats. The headlights of the car make its connection with the Brio quite evident. The Honda designers have done well with the wraparound rear screen and floating D-pillar. The car has bigger wheels compared to the Brio and Amaze as a result of which it rides a little higher as well. The Mobilio MPV is powered by a 1.5-litre, 99bhp diesel engine or a 1.5-litre, 117bhp i-VTEC engine. Though the car is considered to be a compact SUV, Honda has still managed to provide room inside it.

As a part of the eco-friendly technology of the company, Honda has also displayed the Accord Hybrid.
