This paper deals with approximation problems in a multidimensional setting for a family of convolution integral operators of homothetic type of the form $$ (T_wf)({s}) = \int_{\mathcal R^N} K_w ({ t}) f({ st}) \,d{ t},~~w>0,~ { s} \in \mathcal R^N; $$ here $\{K_w\}_{w>0}$ are approximate indentities, $\mathcal R:=\mathbb R^+_0$, and $f$ belongs to $BV^{\varphi}(\mathcal R^N)$, the space of functions with bounded $\varphi$-variation on $\mathcal R^N$. The main result of the paper establishes that, if $f$ is $\varphi$-absolutely continuous, there exists $\mu >0$ such that $$ V^{\varphi}[\mu(T_w f-f)]\longrightarrow 0,\ \ \hbox{as}\ w\rightarrow +\infty, $$ where $V^{\varphi}$ denotes the multidimensional $\varphi$-variation introduced in [8]. The rate of approximation is also investigated, by means of suitable Lipschitz classes.
