Honda presents the Mobilio, Brio Satya at 2013 Indonesia Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on September 24, 2013

The new Mobilio concept from Honda was shown at the Indonesia International Motor Show. The Mobilio previews a new Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) for Asia. The concept’s exterior is quite plain, with one bar grille, sweptback headlights and a 'floating roof' that is reminiscent of the Civic Tourer. In addition, it features an Odyssey-inspired "lightning-bolt" beltline.

This model is a seven-seater and has a ground clearance of 185mm (7.2 inches) similar to that of a crossover. That’s because this model was designed to manage local road and weather conditions. Honda has yet to divulge its performance information. It would only confirm that it is equipped with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine.

Honda has also introduced the Brio Satya powered by a 1.2L i-VTEC petrol engine. This model returns over 20 km/L (5L/100km / 47 mpg US / 56.4 mpg UK), making it eligible for Indonesia's Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) program. 

"The Honda Mobilio is the first model Honda has developed especially for the Indonesian market. Working closely with Honda operations here to study the unique needs of Indonesian customers, this Honda Mobilio will fulfill the dreams of Indonesian customers for an affordable family car featuring Honda's high standard of quality. We will continue to support the expansion of Honda business in Indonesia by introducing new products that meet the needs of our Indonesian customers." said Takanobu Ito, President and CEO of Honda Motor Co.
