2013 Honda Jade.jpg

Dongfeng Honda Jade. 2013 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door MPV. F/F, 1496 cm³ petrol–electric hybrid, 1798 cm³ petrol (I4 OHC). Low, Honda Odyssey (RB3)-like MPV targeted at younger buyers on Honda Civic (2011–) platform, outselling the Volkswagen Touran I and Mazda Premacy (CW) in China. Simple, quality interior, and very roomy. Not too many gadgets by modern Chinese standards, but just enough to be practical at the base level. Engine shared with Civic, but with Jade’s extra weight, the car became more sluggish. Independent front suspension, double wishbones at rear, yet Jade was not an inspired handler at speed with poor steering feedback. Body roll at a minimum, however. Japanese sales from 2015, with 2+2+2 seating; hybrid for Japanese market from 2015.

Manufacturing location: Wuhan, Hubei, China

Marque: Honda | Predecessor: Honda Stream (RN6)
