Predecessor Honda Stream

The Honda Jade is a compact MPV produced by Honda Motor Company. It was first introduced in the Chinese market in September 2013, where it is manufactured by Dongfeng Honda.[1]

The Jade is based on the latest Stream platform and has two seating versions for 5 or 4+2 passengers. It will compete with vehicle such as the Kia Rondo and Mazda5. The Jade was developed primarily with the Chinese market in mind but has since been released in Japan from February 2015 and is expected to be marketed in other regions in the future.[2][3]

Besides the two seating options (5 or 4+2), there are two trim levels (EXi or VTi), and two transmissions (5AT or CVT) [4] and two engines to choose from (1.8 upon release, 2.0 to follow).[5]

Versions[edit]

Starting February 2015, a hybrid version is to be sold in Japan with a 2+2+2 seating layout.[6]

In May 2015, the Jade RS was launched to the Japan market, offering a newly developed 1.5-liter direct injection VTEC Turbo engine rated at 150PS (148 hp) at 5,500 rpm and 203Nm (150 lb-ft) of torque between 1,600 and 5,000 rpm.[7]
