The Honda FR-V went on sale in the UK in November 2004 and is Honda's contender in the popular compact segment of the MPV market. Like Fiat's six seat Multipla the Honda FR-V which stands for Flexibility Recreation and Versatility features a 3 + 3 seating configuration with intelligent packaging and innovative seat conversion mechanisms, with the ability to carry up to 6 people while simultaneously offering good load volume.
The Honda FR-V is available in SE and Sport trim levels with prices ranging from £15,390 to £18,290.
A choice of two petrol engines are available the 1.7i VTEC and 2.0 i-VTEC and with the ever growing demand for diesel fuel economy Honda introduced the new 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine - the first to be fully designed and developed in-house by Honda.
A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard with the 1.7i VTEC petrol engine and a 6-speed manual is standard with the 2.0 i-VTEC petrol and 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine. Disappointingly an automatic option is not available.
With established competition in the form of the Citroen Xsara Picasso, Fiat Multipla, Ford Focus C-MAX , Renault Scenic, Vauxhall, Zafira and Volkswagen Touran can Honda's cleverly designed MPV change MPV ownership from 'ordinary to extraordinary'?
