The Honda Edix is a 5-door compact MPV manufactured and marketed in Japan by Honda from 2004 to 2009. The Honda Edix's original name in other markets was Honda FR-V, but the company decided to rename the model in the Japanese market. The FR-V was famous for its 3+3 seating layout and the Fiat Multipla.

History of the Honda Edix

Designed by Honda, the company's Edix was a six-seat MPV with a unique look. The concept of a six-passenger MPV was not revolutionary, but how a vehicle manufacturer implemented it was. The 1998 Fiat Multipla, for example, was a functional vehicle. However, it is one of the world's ugliest automobiles. A six-passenger automobile attracted Honda in 2005 when they introduced the Edix. Although it was aesthetically superior to the Multipla, the Japanese manufacturer chose to discontinue production of that model in 2011. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Honda's FR-V six-seater was an excellent automobile. However, the Japanese automaker was caught off guard. Since the global financial crisis of 2008 to 2012, the automobile industry has declined, and numerous well-known brands have either vanished or been purchased by other companies. The Honda FR-V has been on sale since 2004, and a facelift was scheduled for 2007. Nothing could stop the wheels from spinning. They still decided to continue the facelift in 2007.


Honda retailed the Honda Edix with a starting original MSRP of $13,809 and $18,195 for the top-of-the-line variant. When converted, that's $21,100 to $27,800 in the 2022 USD exchange rate.


Interior Features of the Honda Edix

The interior seating arrangement of the Edix model is 3+3. Honda's biggest center armrest and cupholders might have been created by folding the front middle seat when not in use. Engineers positioned the gear stick on the middle stack to make room for it. There were 3 more seats in the back, each with its longitudinal adjustability. When they did the facelift, Honda somewhat updated the trim on the inside. As a result, Honda has switched to wood-look trims in place of the former carbon-fiber appearance trims. An aux-in connector on the infotainment system connects external equipment like an MP3 player.

Exterior Features of the Honda Edix

The Edix's posture and lengthened wedge design set it apart from the pack. On the other hand, Honda created the FR-V with rounded corners and flat surfaces, unlike the well-known Japanese fighters. That was primarily a Ford motif at the time. An oddly sloping, then vertical, end was located at the top of the rising lines. A set of changes to the car were planned for the 2007 model year by Honda. The grille and side scoops on the front bumper were aerodynamically contoured, giving a more powerful appearance. Honda used clear lenses for its headlights. Upgraded tail lights with yellow turn signals have been placed at the back of the vehicle. A set of bumper-light improvements include the new door handles.

Specs of the Honda Edix

The engine specs for the Honda Edix depend on the engine choice, but we'll focus only on the 2.0-liter engine. The Honda Edix delivers 150 hp (110 kW) of horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 142 lb-ft (192 Nm) of torque at 4,000 rpm. This model accelerates from 0-62 mph (100 kph) in 10.5 seconds, with a top speed of 121 mph (195 kph) and a curb weight of 3,351 lbs (1,520 kg). Available transmission types for the Honda Edix are the following: 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, 5-speed automatic, and 4-speed automatic. A front-engine layout with two different drivetrains was used, including front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD).
