The Review

As mentioned, you buy this car for it's exceptional flexibility. Not for racing, not for competing with other cars. With the right mindset, you will be satisfied. It's performance is good. Power can still kick in if you step enough, i.e not trying to be light footed.

Strengths

Wonderful arrangment of seats allowing 6 to sit. If going for short distances, you can manage 4 at the rear, not the most comfortable of course, but for usage in Singapore, it's fine. Most importantly, while seating 6, you still have a considerable boot as compared to any 7 seaters.

Weaknesses

Car is heavy, thus move off is slightly sluggish if you are trying to be light footed.

The Review

Honda is going on a interesting direction with the introduction of cars like Airwave and Edix, defining cars in new class of cars. The Airwave is a comfortable extra large wagon to drive around. It's probably 3/4 the weight of a regular MPV, it's length is shorter than a civic! Not that you can tell from a glance. It's rear cargo expands when you push down the rear seats (really ergonomical catches for folding down), I can even fit a mahjong table in comfortably! Performance wise, the 1.5 VTEC engine is still quite amazing. You would have thought a car of this size would warrant at least a 1.8 litre engine , but no, 1.5 does it just fine. Of course, the light weight helps. If not for the CVT, this would have been a great car. The glass roof is a novelty, akin to the one in the Renault Scenic. But mind you, it's not going to be very popular on sunny days, as you'll be barbequing folks alive :p All in, a marvellously designed car that breaks grounds. Just remember that it's not a MPV, but a lifestyle wagon ;) Cheers!

Strengths

1. VTEC engine is still delightful
2. Roomy interior for front and rear passengers.
3. Large cargo space with rear seats down. (MJ table can fit
4. Beautiful glass roof

Weaknesses

1. Lacking in Handling, can feel bodyroll, and steering suffers fr torque steer, as like some other hondas.
2. CVT is rough, and slow to engage when quick changes to the accelerator are applied


Good alternative for
MPV

The Review

Have good quality interior. Seat fabrics feel soft and comfortable. Unique dashboard design(some similarity to BMW), with gear knob on dashboard. Handbrake has been changed to footbrake due to the centre seat. Personally I think this is good, just a matter of getting use. It is called Honda FRV in Europe and it is getting popular there.

Strengths

1. Very versatile seating arrangement. Designed for 6 persons (3 seater front & 3 seater rear). The centre seat in front can be foldered to become a super-wide arm rest for driver and front passenger, with smart design which doubles as storage compartment. Due to the 3-3 design, the body is wider than any sedan, which means you can squeeze 4 in the rear and not feeling as squeezy. Official 6 seater but taking 7 is not a problem.
2. Big boot space of 439 litres. Bigger than any MPV.
3. Good fuel economy, 1700cc with 13.8km/ltr

Weaknesses

Engine is roaring (maybe because tested without radio unit fitted, noise from engine compartment is transmitting through the empty hole). Nonetheless, it will still surge forward if you floor the accelerator.
