The Honda Jade is a compact MPV produced by Honda. 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 ninth generation Civic platform and has two seating versions for 5 or 4+2 passengers. It will compete with vehicle such as the Kia Carens 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 (1.8L upon release, followed by 1.5L Turbo).[5]

Versions[edit]

In February 2015, a hybrid version went on sale in Japan with a 2+2+2 seating layout.[6]

In May 2015, the Jade RS was launched to the Japanese 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]

Facelift[edit]

The facelifted Jade was unveiled at the 2016 Auto Guangzhou. The Japanese domestic market version of the facelifted Jade was launched on May 17, 2018, and went on sale on the following day. It was announced on the website on March 8, 2018. The current trim levels are G, RS, X, HYBRID RS and HYBRID X, which were now equipped with standard Honda Sensing.
