All new Honda Freed goes on sale in Japan

By Faiming_low on 20 Sep 2016 in New model

Attached Image The all new Honda Freed has gone on sale in Japan and is available in hybrid and normal petrol variants. For the Japanese market, buyers can choose from 16 different variants of the car, with choices of it being a normal five seater or a six/seven seater. There is also a special-needs version of the Freed for those who have passengers who are wheelchair bound. You can also have your car with all-wheel drive if you wish.

Attached Image The normal Freed is 4,265mm in length with some models of the Freed+ a further 30mm longer to allow for more cargo space. Interestingly, the Freed+ only comes in five seater guise while the normal Freed can be had in six or seven seater guise. Elsewhere, rear sliding doors now open 665mm (an increase of 20mm) for easier entry. A 15mm lower ground height helps too.

Attached Image Once inside, passengers will find it easier to move around the car as the walk-through width increases by 50mm in the first row and 25 mm in the second row. The new Freed also gets a cleaner-looking dashboard design with a total of three interior colours (black, beige and mocha).

Attached Image Since the freed is based on the Honda Fit/Jazz, it's no surprise the powertrains available are largely similar. Buyers will have a choice of a 129bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC petrol that is mated to a CVT or a hybrid i-DCD powertrain that makes use of a 108bhp 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC engine that is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an 29bhp electric motor.

Attached Image The front-wheel drive versions of the Hybrid can return up to 27.2km/L while the petrol variant will achieve 19km/L.

Attached Image The Honda Freed is expected to be slightly more expensive than the Toyota Sienta if it does reach our shores.
