Mugen Tricks Out New Honda CR-V, Insight And N-Van Too

Mugen, one of the world’s most respected Honda specialists, had a few news to share with their Japanese audience at the Tokyo Auto Salon

Aside from giving the Honda Civic Type R a face only a mother could love, Mugen is also showcasing its latest styling kits for some of the company’s other models, including the Insight, CR-V and N-Van.

Mugen’s new kits include a full body kit, bigger alloys and various other accessories for all three models. Unfortunately there’s no actual performance-enhancing component in the list, aside from a new exhaust on the Insight and N-Van models.

The Mugen Insight features a front lower spoiler and grille detailing, fatter side skirts, a rear under spoiler and a subtle wing. A set of 18-inch alloys shod in 225/40 tires complete the changes.

The Mugen CR-V gets a similar bodywork treatment and a set of 19-inch lightweight alloys wrapped in 235/55 tires. As for the tiny N-Van, Mugen’s idea was to turn it into the perfect daily for motorsport fans, giving it more visual presence with a black front spoiler with LEDs, a rear bumper insert, race-inspired graphics, a sports exhaust and new 12-inch alloys.

If you like your Honda looking sporty but don’t miss the horsepower, Mugen clearly has you covered. All you have to do is live in Japan.

    The design of the Insight should have been the Civic and the Civic should have been the Insight. Honda really stuffed this up… again SMH 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Back when I had my Honda CRX Si, Mugen actually made performance parts, not just spoilers, and “sporty” stuff… I loved their header & exhaust setup
