Honda Jade Debuts in Shanghai

2013 Shanghai Auto Show

People-carrier concept shares more than a passing resemblance to the European-market Civic Wagon.

Honda hasfollowed up its debuts of the Crider and M minivan concepts at the Shanghai Auto Show with the unveiling of the Jadewagon, which the Japanese carmaker plans to produce and sell in Chinathrough its joint venture with local automaker Dongfeng. Previewedlast year in Beijing by the Concept S, the Jade is based on the sameplatform as the Honda Stream (itself based on the Civic), and will go on salein China later this year offered with 1.8- and 2.0-liter gasoline four-pots.

According to the Dongfeng-Honda, the new model was designed as a global car with a mass-production future and so will likely appear on the international stage as a smaller alternative to the Honda Odyssey minivan in certain markets. The new styling themes introduced with the S concept have been continued with the Jade and evolves Honda's family design language with a new headlight and grille design, as well as a sporty bumper and some fresh large alloys.
