i am driving a 2009 Freed today... happy with it... that's why i have my heart set on the new Freed Hybrid... same ride, friendlier to the environment. 

 

I spoke with the guys from Autolink... the Freed cost a bit more than the Sienta... so now, they are pushing the Sienta, not the Freed. 

 

My concern is the after sales, especially on the battery... and other parts. One thing to get the PI to bring it in on order, another to be ready for any spares. Also, does it need to be tested by LTA like other new models?

 

I read the article on the 1.0L turbo... that's on the Civic and the first market seems to be Europe. Not sure if they will be used for the Freed, even JDM.  Afterall, the Freed chassis is based on Fit/Jazz, not Civic.Furthermore.its a 2017 model... maybe launched in 2016, but still some months away

 

Thanks for the sharing. I probably need to talk with other PIs

the engine will be similar across the range, Honda announced 3 turbo engines few years ago. 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 litre. today 1.5 Turbo already used in StepWGN. the engine block will more or less be the same, probably tuned slightly different between a sedan/hatch versus mpv. it's strange that current Freed Hybrid cost more than Sienta Hybrid? Current Freed hybrid is not full EV...still using IMA.

But i reckon the upcoming Freed Hybrid should be full EV like Vezel Hybrid.

so this is the 2016 Freed... looks like a baby odyssey to me... somehow still prefer the current profile... this one a bit too bulky up front... but, it does come with the hybrid engine option... not much info from the japanese website at the moment...

yes looks like there is no 1.0 litre turbo option. a bit disappointed.

 

Honda JP website just mentioned 2 options, 1.5NA or 1.5 hybrid.

 

http://sport-car.aka...-car/post-6946/

 

Malaysia popular paultan.org website also mentioned similar config. But one thing it mentioned for the hybrid it is using the previous mild hybrid - IMA. If that is the case, then it will most likely not have EV mode. This is different from current hybrid Vezel and Odyssey.

In that case, hybrid version is not attractive for freed.

Looks good but I prefer a bench middle row instead so can sit 3 but I suppose this is ideal for wheelchair bound passengers?

when can see real car in spore?

The car will be launched in Japan on 16 Sep, so if PI fast hand fast leg, might be able to get the first unit in their showroom by late Dec. However, with 2 - 3 months needed for LTA clearance, it might be in March 2017 that we will get to see it put in our road.

And as with most Honda model of late, demand will be high and stock / allocation might be tight in the first few months after launch. This Freed is no exception basing in the interest it has gathered online.

 2nd row with 2 seats is a big minus - for a compact MPV category car, effectively it seats 4 + 2 without any bootspace? with a bench can still squeeze 1 more pax hahaha

Agreed, that's why I never like those Captain seats in the middle row esp for this mid sized MPV cos it's a waste. At least for Ody, the 3rd row can go in 3 so not so bad but even then I prefer bench for middle row. The Jade also another middle row with 2 seats, don't know why Honda like to have this configuration.
