The company is also bringing a version of the S660 roadster with a more luxurious leather interior.
Like Toyota, Honda is now teasing its lineup for the Tokyo Auto Salon that kicks off on January 13, 2017, at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall. The company is keeping some secrets for the show because for the moment it’s only unveiling a few of the concepts going on display there.
Honda adds some extra spice to a few of its minivans at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon by introducing two concepts of the Freed, which is a compact model available in five- or seven-passenger configurations. The Modulo X (below left) gives the van a sporty look by adding red accents and a more aggressive body kit. The Active version is for outdoorsy drivers and features green accent pieces that seem to take inspiration from macramé.
The Japanese automaker also has a concept for the show called the Infinite Garu, but there are no images of the vehicle yet. A translation of Honda’s teaser indicates that it’s a small, rounded vehicle, and the idea behind the model is “the dream of ours, what we want to make.” The enigmatic description leaves us curious to see what Honda is building.
Honda will also bring some modified production vehicles to the show. Among them, there will be the S660 Bruno Leather Edition with a more opulent interior for the little roadster. The company will also show the crimson trim of the Modulo version of its Stepwgn minivan (below) and a body kit by Mugen for the Freed.
Motorsport fans will also have a lot to see at the Tokyo Auto Salon. Among the lineup, Honda will bring McLaren MP4-31 Formula One car and NSX-GT, which will compete in Super GT next year. Motorcycle fans will be able to check out a variety of machines, including the RC213V MotoGP bike and the electric Shinden from the Isle of Man TT Zero Challenge.
