The current generation of the compact minivan Honda Freed has been sold on the Japanese market since 2016. In 2019, the car built on the Fit platform (aka Jazz) went through a restyling procedure, and next year it should move into the third generation.
The day before, the insider Japanese portal “BestCarWeb” revealed the first details about this new product, and also accompanied this information with rendering images.
As the publication’s journalists write, the third generation of Honda Freed was supposed to appear this year, but for unknown reasons the debut of the car was postponed to 2024. The tentative date for the premiere of the compact van is now given as April or May next year.
The first rendering images give an idea of how Freed may change with the move to a new generation. In computer renderings, the car has the same silhouette as its predecessor, but has a different hood, headlights, grille and rims.
All body panels of the car will most likely be new, as evidenced by the appearance of a narrow stamping that extends from the optics through the doors to the rear fender.
Serious changes await, including the rear of the compact van, where vertical taillights, a completely different bumper and a new, straighter trunk lid should debut.
If you believe rumors from Japan, the concept of the car will not change. It, as before, will be built on the Fit platform and will receive exactly the same engines under the hood as in the case of this city car. We are talking about a 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder unit, as well as a 2-motor e:HEV hybrid.
