JDM Traditional Japanese Car Honda STEP WGN

STEP WGN is a minivan produced and sold by Honda.

The STEP WGN appeared as a bonnet-type minivan with an FF layout and became popular for its good exterior and reasonable price.

The STEP WGN car name comes from the Life Step Van, a light van that was released by Honda. It is a wish to be able to step up in various scenes. WGN is the abbreviation of wagon as a logotype.

In 1996, the 1st generation STEP WGN was released. At that time, Honda was mainly producing FF small cars, and there was no lineup of RV models that were beginning to become popular. Therefore, we decided to develop a full-fledged RV in-house, realizing the largest indoor space among the 5 number sizes. It was designed with family use in mind, with a large rear sliding door, seats with a bore-up function, a flat floor base with no steps, and walk-through up to the third row. The engine to be installed is a specially tuned 2.0L 4-cylinder DOHC engine.

The 2nd generation was introduced in 2001. The functions and design that were popular from the 1st generation were inherited as they were. Based on the concept of "Family Banzai centered on children", the design was reviewed with emphasis on children's perspectives even among family use. In terms of exterior design, the front nose was shortened while retaining the features of the first model. Based on the new platform, a newly designed exclusive suspension is adopted, and the body incorporates the collision safety function of G control technology.

In 2005, the 3rd generation appeared. Adopting a new platform, the body size became compact and it became a simple and modern design with rounded corners. Although the engine is the same type as the previous model, the engine output and fuel efficiency have been greatly improved by reviewing the characteristics.

In 2009, the 4th generation appeared. It was developed under the concept of "comfort for everyone" with the aim of being a "car that the whole family can enjoy while traveling comfortably". The body size packaging has been revised, and the wheelbase and glass area have been expanded. This model has the most roomy interior space in its class.

In 2015, the 5th generation appeared. The engine is Honda's first direct-injection 1.5L 4-cylinder VTEC turbo engine. The exterior retains the low-floor, low-center-of-gravity concept inherited from the predecessor, while adopting a youthful body style with a sense of dynamism. Other new features include the Waku-Waku Gate, which combines the tailgate with a side-opening subdoor, and the Magic Seat, which allows the third-row seats to be split left and right and stored under the floor.

In 2021, the 6th generation appeared. From the 5th generation, the overall length and width were expanded, and it became the first all-type 3-number specification in history. The exterior returned to the box shape of the 1st and 2nd generations, and the rear combination lamps were also changed to a vertical tone. The 5th-generation tailgate has been abolished with the “Waku-Waku Gate”, and has become a general flip-up type.

It will continue to evolve as Honda's 5 number size minivan model.
