New Honda Step WGN Modulo X Proves Minivans Don’t Have To Be Boring

If you’re looking for a minivan at a Honda dealership in North America, your choices will come down to the Odyssey or the… nope, that’s it. Just the Odyssey. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, mind you, but back home, Honda offers several more. Like the Step WGN, for example.

With a higher roof and more space than the Stream or even the JDM Odyssey, the Step WGN is currently in its fifth generation. Now Honda has come out with a new Modulo X version.

Following similar treatments applied to the N-Box and N-One, the Step WGN Modulo X takes a sportier approach to the minivan than what we’d usually see on the other side of the Pacific.

Details have still yet to be disclosed in full, but the sport wagon is slated to feature a more aggressive-looking aero kit, an enhanced interior, a fresh set of wheels, and possibly an upgraded suspension as well.

The current Step WGN is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo four rated at 148 horsepower, which is likely to carry over unchanged – as is the innovative Waku Waku (“exciting”) tailgate that can open upwards or split to the side. Expect the full introduction to follow late in October.
