Honda Stream

Recommended Posts

The Honda Stream is a compact MPV manufactured by the Japanese automaker Honda since 2001. Japanese models have gasoline direct injection 1.7 L and 2.0 L engines with improved fuel efficiency. It was facelifted in January 2004.

Its exterior design is a mix of compact MPV and station wagon; and its height (1.55 m) makes it hard to classify it precisely. Handling characteristics are more like a smaller hatchback than any other comparable compact MPV.

A second generation 2007 model was officially presented on the 13th July 2006.

First Generation (2001 - 2007)

post-1-089347600 1314106974_thumb.jpgThe first generation Honda Stream (Body codes: RN1/2/3/4/5) was a response to the sale success of the contemporaries like Mazda Premacy, which released earlier. It was largely based on the Civic, with the same flat chassis but added 100mm in length to accommodate the third row of seats. In advertising and promotional brochures Honda describes it as a sporty 7-seater.

The first generation Honda Stream was available with a 1.7l D17 engine and a 2.0l K20, equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a 5-speed automatic transmission with sequential mode respectively. For some export markets a manual version was also offered

Second Generation (2007 - Present)

The lower-end spec will feature the R18A 1.8 liter SOHC i-VTEC (2-stage) engine with a 5-speed automatic gearbox (and a 5-speed manual transmission in some countries). The higher-end spec called the Stream RS-Z will feature the R20A 2.0 liter SOHC i-VTEC (3-stage) engine equipped with a CVT transmission and 7 speeds paddle shift function (tiptronic). The RS-Z model also comes with firmer damping shock absorbers with anti-roll/sway bar for the rear setup.

Stream RST (2009-) & TS (2010-)

This variant of the Stream has only 2 rows of seats (5 seats).
