The Honda FR-V, also known as the Honda Edix in Japan, is a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that was manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer Honda from 2004 to 2009, and marketed until 2011. It has six seats and, along with the Fiat Multipla, it once was one of only two compact minivans with a 3+3 seating configuration offered on the European market.

The FR-V was officially launched on 15 January 2005. On 1 June 2005, Honda presented the diesel variant of the FR-V. The Honda FR-V allows folding down the front middle seat to create a tray or arm rest. The compact MPV offers around 32 different seating combinations, three ISOFIX points and lots of cabin and load space.

In the autumn of 2009, the FR-V ended production without a direct successor.
