Honda N-Box Surprises Us with High End Features
Boxy minicars from Japan can rarely be called as high-tech or sporty even. However, Honda Motor Co. wishes to change the dowdy image on all counts using its next-gen Honda N-Box. The Honda N-Box has been the best-selling nameplate in the Japanese niche segment.
The redesigned N-Box hit the market on Sept. 1 and had a revamped engine, which gives priority to acceleration over fuel economy. The vehicle will get the Honda’s advanced safety system, the Honda Sensing. This includes features like lane-keep assist and emergency automatic braking.
The move by Honda to put high-end features into simpler vehicles marks how Japanese automakers are good at what they do.
Using such upgrades as an idea, Honda hopes to keep N-box from losing its best-selling minicar tag, which it has held onto for the past few years.
Performance of the Honda N-Box
The Honda N-Box lost approx 80 kg by using a different and new platform.
The car has a naturally aspirated engine that features variable valve timing apart from lift electronic control system. The car’s turbo version will have an electric wastegate to give better turbo boost. Both these features are first in a Japanese car.
