The optimistic side of life

I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter. Finish each day & be done with it. You have done what you could. Learn from it; tomorrow is a new day. Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a brand new opportunity to rebuild what you truly want.

The best way to predict the future is to create it. Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, nor forgotten.

The latest 2.0-coded NU may have less power than the Theta II engine with 166 hp. But this machine in a more fuel-efficient claims than its predecessor because it has the torque and maximum power at a lower engine speed.

2.0 Nu engine is able to issue a power of 158 ps at 6200 rpm and a torque of 19.6 kgm at 4000 rpm. Although power has decreased, we do not feel a significant reduction in acceleration, even barely feel when compared to previous generation engines.

The interesting thing there is the 6 speed transmission that is also found in the KIA Sportage. Since both of these cars have the same base, Hyundai Tucson has a transmission that is responsive so we do not need to make the shift to manual mode when about to accelerate. Pretty fun!

Mobilio Diesel i-DTEC Review

Emblem-i_DTEC-Honda-Mobilio-DieselIt turns out that the form of diesel Mobilio not different at all with type E Mobilio variants circulating in Indonesia. Mobilio diesel comes with a chromed grille and fog lamp as standard, 15 inch rims without a shiny finish like the type of Prestige.

There was no significant difference of the identity of this diesel variant penenggak. If anything, it’s just i-DTEC small emblem on the lower right side of the trunk door.

Who experience the difference is quite striking is the interior. The design is still the same as Mobilio in Indonesia, the material used was exactly the same. Turn signal lever feel when playing, wipers and the buttons on the dashboard quite acceptable for Low MPV class in India.

One thing that concerns us is the new Wooden panels that cover the front area of ??the driver to the head unit. Although the placement is rather awkward, but the quality is very good wooden panels. India is famous consumer quite eccentric in dress the vehicle.

Although the layout of the dashboard is taking into account the functional aspects, the design is a little disappointing for the price Mobilio in India. Honda India also downgrade to this Mobilio, but they do so in an area that is not seen directly by the driver. For instance, a rubber bootlid that seem perfunctory mounted so that it can be removed without strenuous effort

The second and third row accommodations were not different from the Mobilio Indonesian ID cards. We still get a thin seat, how equal access and space for the size of the relieved Low MPV. The third row seats are still able to accommodate adults with a height of 180 cm and still leaves a little headroom and legroom. But it would be a plus if Honda brings Captain Seat in the second row to lift the impression of luxury in this diesel Mobilio.

For features, Mobilio diesel get AC double blower, parking camera, navigation system, dual airbags and ABS + EBD. Which make diesel Mobilio should be proud is the availability of Steering Control Switch in this variant, while in Indonesia, the feature is only available in hospitals Mobilio was recently launched.

What is interesting to be discussed is the engine. The diesel engine used is the engine i-DTEC EarthDream Technology 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. Power generated is 100 HP and torque reaches 200 Nm. On paper, reduced power of 18 HP gasoline engine but greater torque 55 Nm.

When compared with diesel Chevrolet Spin also has a diesel variant with 1.3 liter capacity, 75 HP power and 190 Nm of torque, thanks to the clearly superior Honda 200 cc capacity greater than Spin. One thing is like a diesel engine cover Honda Mobilio looks more tidy so that beautify the appearance of the engine room.

Using a 5-speed manual transmission, quite smooth Mobilio MPV Diesel Low to size. Torque is distributed evenly in each round of the engine, and turbo lag is difficult to detect this while driving a car. Acceleration 0-100 km / h is claimed it took 15 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited speed of 140 km / hour.

Honda claims, Mobilio diesel has been designed with the NVH (Noise-Vibration-harshness) are good for the size of the diesel cars. It is the sound of the wind, tire and engine that were not so interrupting us, but it should be better for a Honda product. 5-speed transmission that is used quite precise and the clutch pedal is light to operate, but unfortunately missed the 6-speed version in the diesel variant to suppress the price.

How does it feel when asked to interact with the street? Although weight is slightly heavier than the petrol variant, Honda maintains driving experience like carrying a Honda Brio. Precisely with this weight gain, diesel Mobilio more stable and steady to drive both in the city and out of town. Steady handling of gasoline types Mobilio style is still maintained. But of course the consequences are not so comfort can be proud of, still under Suzuki Ertiga. Disc brakes in front and drum in the back very well, being able to stop the car without causing excessive body sway. In the most expensive variants, ABS + EBD brakes and dual airbags became standard safety features.

With the application of diesel engines, Honda Mobilio claim best performance diesel will reach 24.2 km / liter. Although the figure shows the MID was 13.3 km / liter, but when we tested it on the freeway with longer distances and low rpm, figures in MID improved up to 20 km / liter. The condition of the car at the time of testing the contents of the 4 passengers in the cabin and luggage in the trunk, so it seems like it is quite possible that the numbers could be achieved by the claimed Honda Mobilio diesel owners.

For diesel Mobilio, Honda put a price around 750,000 to 775,000 rupees in India, or if in kurskan about 145 million to 151 million dollars, the price is quite reasonable with all the advantages offered by the diesel engine. For the Indonesian market, it seems there are no signs that PT Honda Prospect Motor intends to enter the diesel version of this Mobilio to the Indonesian market, when there is news, Suzuki as competitors step away meniagakan Ertiga diesel in the country.
