Honda Mobilio now available with CVT

BY CHARL BOSCH - FEBRUARY 2, 2015

Honda Southern Africa has added a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) option to its seven-seat Mobilio compact MPV that made its local debut in October last year.

Available only on the range-topping Comfort spec, the CVT uses the same 1.5-litre i-VETEC four cylinder petrol engine as the manual, which produces 88 kW and 145 N.m. Top speed also remains unchanged at 140 km/h with the 0-100 km/h sprint taking 0.5 sec longer at 14.3 sec. Fuel consumption is rated at 6.0 L /100 km, a 0.1 L /100 km improvement over the manual.

Standard spec on the CVT mirrors that of the manual and includes a four-speaker sound system with CD / MP3 / USB / Aux input, electric windows all around, electric mirrors, air conditioning with rear passenger ventilation controls, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, pre-tensioning front and rear seatbelts and central locking.

A three year / 100 000 km warranty and two year / 30 000 km service plan is included in the R219 900 asking price.
