Under the bonnet, the Indonesian-spec Honda Mobilio is expected to be powered by a 1.5 litre petrol motor and a 1.5 litre diesel engine, both paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The same engine options are expected to power the Indian-spec Honda Mobilio, however, select petrol variants might be offered with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox.
