Honda Updates Its Slick Little N-Box Slash Kei Car

You think the Fit is small? Honda sells even smaller models in Japan. Most of them wear the letter N – like the N-One, N-WGN, N-Box, or the one you see here, called the N-Box Slash.

Rolled out just a couple of years ago, the N-Box Slash is one of the more stylish members of Honda’s Kei-car family, taking a wildly different design approach to the retro N-One. And now it’s undergone a bit of a refresh with new interior trim, equipment, alloys, and exterior color options.

There’s an outdoorsy new Trekking Style interior package, a window treatment that cuts down on UV and IR radiation, and more USB outlets. Buyers can choose between 16 two-tone color schemes and 25 monotone colors (including three new shades) and six interior packages.

As per Japanese regulations, all Kei cars are powered by a 660cc engine – in this case with three cylinders and available in naturally aspirated or turbo forms, driving to the front wheels or all four through a continuously variable transmission. Pricing starts at 1,320,000 yen ($13k) for the base G model and tops out at 1,840,000 ($18k) in top-of-the-line X Turbo form.
