Honda Introduces The New N-Box In Japan

Honda has introduced the new N-Box in Japan.

Looking instantly recognizable, the redesigned model has a new front fascia with a revised grille that is flanked by LED headlights. Of course, the car’s defining characteristic is its boxy styling which helps to create a relatively spacious cabin.

Speaking of the interior, it features a three-spoke steering wheel, a push-button ignition, and a multi-information display in the instrument cluster. A variety of options will be available including GPS navigation and Aller Clean seats which feature an antiviral upholstery treatment.

Power is provided by a new 660cc engine that produces 58 PS (43 kW) and 65 Nm (48 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system. Customers looking for something more powerful can opt for higher-end variants with a turbocharged engine.

Despite the familiar styling, the N-Box rides on a new platform and is built using a new joining technique. This helps to increase rigidity while also reducing the model’s weight by approximately 80 kg (176 lbs).

On the safety front, the N-Box is one of the Honda’s first kei cars to be equipped with the Honda SENSING suite of driver assistance and safety systems. Functions include Collision Mitigation Braking, False Start Prevention, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Road Departure Mitigation. There’s also Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and a Pedestrian Collision Mitigation Steering System.

The Honda N-Box will go on sale tomorrow and pricing starts at ¥1,385,640 ($12,576).
