Honda’s or ‘Flexible Recreational Vehicle’ if you to use its full title, is a different on the familiar compact MPVs we have become used to. of trying to fit three rows of into a space that is only suitable for two, have borrowed an idea Fiat’s Multipla and installed separate seats in the front and rows. This means you can transport six people and a reasonable of luggage all at the same time.

other similar MPVs option is normally not available to you you employ one of those ugly boxes. When I took my two grand children out for a ride in the recently, it was a hit with them away. There is normally a bit of an between them as to who sits up with Grandma.

With the FR-V they both sit safely in the front row and was happy, including Grandma.

impressed me the most about the was the sense of space inside the The three seats in each row the car feel very wide, it isn’t any broader than its competitors. All six seats have belts and the centre front and both outer rear feature ISOFIX child fixings. Full length airbags provide overall protection and there are also front and side bags

The seating system also safety with the central seat sliding 270mm back than the outer Honda recommending that the is put in this position if being to seat a child. The dashboard, a mixture of analogue and digital does work for me -especially the display. Everything is easy to see and to use.

The six speed gear is a little unconventional with the leaver sticking prominently out of the but I found it easy to change once I had driven the FR-V a few In fact the handbrake is also mounted on the dashboard, which is a bit unusual, but again once I accustomed to its position, it was very to operate. I found visibility to be very good, especially the high ride position you get with this type of

The only area where is a slight problem is in the view out of the three-quarters. The substantial rear create a small blind As its name suggests, the FR-V is a vehicle. The three rear all fold individually and also flat into the floor one swift action which the FR-V an ideal family

I really like these seats because I don’t to trouble my other half I want to convert the FR-V a load-lugger. The centre front also folds flat to room for long items and forms a useful table. even a seat cushion with a storage drawer beneath.

The FR-V I tried was by a 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol fitted with a six-speed I found it easy to drive and other MPV-type models I’ve tried before.

The is not what you’d call but FR-V customers don’t to have sports handling top of priority list. The ride is pretty good and the seats are and hold you in position effectively. The 1.8-litre i-VTEC engine accelerate to 60mph in 10.1 and tops out at 118mph. I didn’t try it for but I’m happy to take word for those figures.

Either it’s a very engine or Honda have very well in dampening the noise in the cabin. I had to check the to confirm that the engine was ticking over. Despite a powerful 1.8-litre engine, I was still able to get over driving around town.

As a family MPV, the Honda certainly has something about it to to those who are looking for a more drive than the usual MPV

Yes, I certainly could. For day needs, the FR-V is a very car. It has all the advantages of a family MPV but it is a lot fun to drive.

In addition, the styling it apart from the competition, should add to its overall appeal. February 2008
