Here’s some good news for the fans of small, boxy Japanese cars! Honda announced the new N Box.
Revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, this is a new generation of mini vehicles that do everything a minivan does, but in a smaller scale. The N Bo is the first model in a series of N cars to go on sale from December.
The car is designed with ease of use in mind so it features sliding rear doors, low floor and large opening the tailgate offers excellent convenience for loading luggage. Not that you can load many things in there. Honda says the N Box has the best in class space inside the cabin, thanks to clever packaging with center-tank layout.
You would imagine such a tiny car is pedal-powered. But actually it gets a lineup of DOHC engines, some of the with turbo, and here’s the kicker, you can have it with AWD! What’s the use of that in the N Box we don’t know either.
So a small and efficient mini mini-MPV for running around Tokyo with ease. And you can do that for long since it has fuel economy of 22.2km/L. We’re just not sure it will score very high in crash tests.
