Huge windows, almost rectangular side doors, vertical rear door - this interesting design lets to fit inside three seat rows, enabling up to 8 pasangers to travel in comparing to rivals - small car. Powered with 1496 cc 90HP (5500 rpm) engine, four wheel drive, this 7-seater weights only 1270 kilos and is smaller than Toyota Corolla!
Honda Mobilo can reach 160 km/h speed, has 130NM of torque (2700rpm) and eats 6,2 liters per 100 km in average. Having in mind that it's full time 4wd, not so bad! As most of Honda's, fuel tank capacity is only 42 liters, but it should be enough to drive for almost 700 kilometers distance. Car is equiped with front vented disk brakes, rear ones drum-type, and rather small R14 185/65 wheels.

Talking about the engine, Honda Mobilo powerplant is true "Honda" - f.e. new VW Caddy (model produced in 2009) has 1,4 75HP engine or simple SDI diesel with 70HP. Only TDI with a lot of red letters in it has 105HP.
