Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced the release of the new Crossroad, an automobile which transcends existing categories by combining the design and functionality of an SUV with the convenient size of a compact car and the 3-row seating and 7-passenger capacity of a minivan. The new Crossroad will go on sale throughout Japan on Friday, February 23.

The Crossroad was designed as an "active life navigator"-a car that helps people enjoy their active new lifestyles, unbound by conventional thinking.

The square motif of the exterior design conveys a feeling of solid presence and strength, while areas around the center pillars and windows are deeply beveled to achieve a sturdy, robust look.

The interior design features sculpted molding around the instrument panel to achieve a fun, confident feel. The square motif is continued throughout the interior, creating a refined, urban tone.

With its innovative packaging, the Crossroad offers a confident presence and versatile 3-row seating, yet is a breeze to handle around town thanks to an overall length of just 4,285mm. And the distinctive angular design around the front headlights gives the Crossroad an effective minimum turning radius1 at the top of its class2.

The Crossroad comes equipped with either a 1.8-liter or a 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine that combines responsive low-to-mid-speed driving performance with outstanding fuel economy. The engine is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission to deliver nimble performance. The 4-wheel-drive model is also equipped with Hill-Start Assist function, which temporarily maintains brake pressure after the brake pedal is released when starting on a hill to ensure smoother starts and enhanced ease of use.


The refreshing, smart packaging creates a versatile space inside a convenient body size.

Versatile 3-row seating offers plenty of convenience yet the overall length of 4,285mm makes it a breeze to handle around town.

The Crossroad's effective minimum turning radius of 5.6 meters3 puts it at the top of its class4.

The rear doors feature a wide opening angle of around 80ï, making it easier for passengers in the second- and third-row seats to get in and out.

The seating can be set in a variety of arrangements with easy operation. The second-row seats tilt and slide forward with the pull of a lever located on the shoulder of the second-row seatback, making it easier for passengers in the third-row seats to get in and out.

The Crossroad is equipped with an emergency puncture repair kit, replacing the spare tire and securing more space for third-row passengers while helping to make the vehicle lighter.

Advanced features and safety performance

The IHCC (Intelligent Highway Cruise Control)8 vehicle speed and distance control system helps reduce the burden on the driver during freeway driving.

The Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS)8 provides audio and visual warnings and braking to alert the driver and to help avoid a rear-end collision or mitigate damage and injuries in the event that one should occur.

Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body enhances passenger protection while mitigating impact on the other vehicle.

The vehicle is also designed to mitigate pedestrian injury in the event of a collision.

The rear frame features a large cross-section along with two internal impact-absorbing frames. The frames have a polygonal cross-section to enable them to effectively absorb the shock of a rear-end collision.
