What is it that people like about Honda Cars?
Honda is an award-winning company that has built a reputation for manufacturing cars that are reliable, durable, economical, good resale value, versatile, safe, stylish, affordable, and great owners review.
In this article, we are going to take a look at the Top 5 Most Popular Honda Cars in BE FORWARD. We are going to take a look at one hatchback, one SUV, and three Minivans. Below are the vehicles we will cover.
Honda Fit is one of the top-selling hatchbacks in Japan and some other markets. Some of its selling points are its versatile cargo handling abilities, its configurable rear magic seat, practicality, and the fact that it’s roomy. Other appealing features are a long list of safety features, its upscale interior, and reasonable pricing.
The 2020 Honda Fit came with a 1.5-liter engine and is available as a 5-door 5-passenger car.
The Fit is available in 4 trims, the standard LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L which come with different options designed to cater to different needs, from the standard LX to the high-end EX-L.
In 2016 Honda CR-V received some facelift before the release of the 5th generation in 2017. This release comes with a modified structure that improves its crash performance as test results of the IIHS small offset crash test revealed.
The 2016 CR-V is equipped with a direct-injected 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter Earth Dreams engine that improved output and fuel efficiency by 5% and maximum torque by 10%. These engines transfer power to the wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The CR-V delivers 11/14 KM/L city/highway with the standard front-wheel-drive model with a 2.0-liter engine.
The interior of the CR-V is so generous with lots of optional features such as a 7-inch touchscreen display, push-start button, 10-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, leather-trimmed seats, power moonroof, while some of the exterior features are the power tailgate, Smart Entry, and 18-inch wheels. Other features on the long list of 2016 CR-V accessories are backup sensors, rooftop attachments, and a remote engine start system.
The 2016 CR-V received 5 out of 5 stars on the NHTSA testing for the SUV’s overall rating. While the IIHS awarded the 2016 Honda CR-V its highest honor of Top Safety Pick+ for 2016 as it received the highest score of “Good” in all crash evaluations and the highest score of “Superior” for the front crash prevention test.
Honda Step WGN
The Honda Step WGN is a mid-size MPV manufactured by Honda since 1996 and is currently in its 5th generation. At the front, the Stepwgn’s nose features a large chrome lath just like other current Honda models which makes it easily recognizable.
The Step WGN came fitted with a powerful 1.5-liter VTEC TURBO engine which offers smooth acceleration and torque equivalent to a 2.4-liter engine, without forgetting its excellent fuel economy. This engine achieves a fuel economy of 17.0km/liter.
The interior of the Stepwgn treats the 7 occupants with a class-leading amount of interior room as boldly claimed by Honda, and this is so due to the boxy styling that enables it to utilize every corner and inch of space.
The Stepwgn’s boot is, without a doubt, one of its biggest selling points. To access the boot, you open the rear tailgate famously known as the Waku Waku Gate that can be opened in two ways by either opening the whole tailgate from the bottom up or by opening the sub-door within the tailgate sideways like a refrigerator door.
Honda Freed 2018
Honda Freed is a compact minivan manufactured by Honda. It is a car that is manufactured for the customer to use anywhere, anytime, in whatever way they feel, and on any day.
The Freed is designed with a natural modern interior that strives to create that relaxing space with upholstery that looks and feels good. The Freed has a 3-row seating arrangement capable of accommodating 6/7 passengers.
As standard, the Freed is fitted with front LED headlights and rear LED taillights, with the front headlights hugged by a stylish grille. The lower section of the bumper has a small lip spoiler that gives the Freed a sporty look. The wheels are 15-inch with different stylish caps.
The Freed is available in G and D trim which are equipped with the 1.5-liter direct injection DOHC i-VTEC engine that achieves an excellent fuel economy of 19.0 KM/L, and the hybrid G and D trim which are equipped with the 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC i-DCD that achieves an excellent fuel economy of 27.2 KM/L. These engines were attached to a CVT and 7-speed DCT with an integrated high-performance electric motor respectively, with 4WD as an option.
The Honda Stream is a 7-seater compact MPV that was produced by Honda from the year 2000 to 2014. The Stream is designed with a rigid body and finely tuned suspensions for a sporty and exhilarating experience.
The Stream comes fitted with either a 1.8-liter R18A SOHC i-VTEC engine or a 2.0-liter R20A SOHC i-VTEC engine that consumes 15.15 KM/L and 13.16 KM/L respectively. These engines transfer power to the wheels via a 5-Speed automatic, &-speed manual or a CVT transmission with 4WD as an option.
The interior of the Stream is spacious with cup holders and storage space for almost all occupants. The headroom, legroom, knee room, and feet room are enough and can accommodate even the tallest of adults comfortably.
Staring the Stream from the front you see that aggressive look triggered by its headlights that resemble those of the Mitsubishi EVO. The curvy bonnet, the streamlined body, and taillights that run from the roof to the bumper add that flare to the exterior looks.
