Review: Honda BR-V and Honda Mobilio

Drove the Honda BR-V and Mobilio the other week and they are literally like non identical twins on the road in terms of what’s under the hood and performance. Here’s a quick comparison with the two. #NCDdailyDrives 🚘🚗


Both, a 7-seater crossover SUV with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, same power, torque and fuel capacity (42 liters) with CVT.🛣


𝑬𝑿𝑻𝑬𝑹𝑰𝑶𝑹

BR-V looks sporty with a higher ground clearance 201mm that is. R16 tires

Mobilio - pegged as a mini wagon, very family oriented :D, lower ground clearance as compared to BR-V, 189mm, R15 tires.


𝑰𝑵𝑻𝑬𝑹𝑰𝑶𝑹

Very identical, dashboard even looks the same. Since the BR-V has a higher ground clearance your road view will be notch higher of course. The basics on the infotainment are there with LCD screen to suit your needs. 


𝑺𝑷𝑨𝑪𝑬

Seats at the back can be folded and tumbled. Very versatile which is a basic in most crossover or compact SUVs. You can check our photos during our #BaryaNiJuan mission in Buhi and Nabua.


𝑷𝑹𝑰𝑪𝑬

A little over 1M depending on the variant. Add a few thousands for the RS or Navi (Navigation) feat too. 


𝑴𝒚 𝒕𝒂𝒌𝒆❓Based on my lifestyle and preference on the looks, I would prefer the BR-V over the Mobilio. Always remember that in getting a car, always take into consideration your 𝑩𝑼𝑫𝑮𝑬𝑻 (how high can you go), your 𝑳𝑰𝑭𝑬𝑺𝑻𝒀𝑳𝑬, what will be the most common USE (purpose) of your vehicle?


𝑫𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒆𝒙𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆

Since they have the same engine, the are literally identical too on the feels except that one has a higher ground clearance. Handling is fine for these two cars. 


In most instances, this Japanese brand has a higher re-sale value. And you know as they say, Honda is Honda.
