Honda Freed Modulo X Gives The Little Minivan A Sportier Edge

It’s been over a year since Honda rolled out the new Freed in Japan, and now it’s following up with a sporty Modulo X version.

The Freed, for those unfamiliar, is a JDM minivan based on the same platform as the Fit/Jazz, to say nothing of the Shuttle wagon and HR-V crossover.

Similar to the transformation applied to the N-Box, N-One, and STEP WGN, the Freed Modulo X features an upgraded suspension, new wheels, and aerodynamic enhancements to give imbue the miniest of minivans with a sportier look and feel.

The front grille and bumpers are new, incorporating a diffuser style at the back, along with new side skirts and tailgate spoiler. It also has LED fog lights, 15-inch alloys, and an interior done up with piano-black trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 9-inch infotainment display.

Japanese buyers will be able to select between six- and seven-seat versions, with either a conventional or hybrid 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine.

          they are already advanced enough to be able to implement it…
          my country is still stuck in the era where we actually have to tap the card on toll booths.
          Oh ya we still have to pay to use highways btw… welcome to 3rd world country.

          • I COULDN’T FIND ANYTHING ON-LINE AS TO HOW THE SETUP WORKS INSIDE THE CAR. NEVER SAW THIS IN THE US WE JUST HAVE WINDSHIELD MOUNTED CARDS.

            windshield mounted units? its hard to come by here. rather expensive too. But i suppose you can route its antenna to your roof while keeping the unit under the dash?

          • I MEAN THE SLOT INSIDE THE CAR (PIC 9). I CAN’T FIND ANY REFERENCE TO HOW IT WORKS ON THE INTERNET.

    Looks just like a Honda Jazz/Fit. I think the Jazz/Fit is a mini-van despite the fact they advertise it as a hatch. The reason you can ‘fit’ so much into it is because it’s a VAN and not a hatchback.

    • It’s targeted for those who has family and love Jazz/Fit so yeah…. And remember vans or people carrier is big thing in Asia.
