This is perhaps the first Asian SUV that combines all unconventional design solutions. A Honda (pickup) can be surprised by many things: it is an independent spring suspension, a rear door that can open in 2 directions, and a Unibody chassis.

Photo and design review
If you look at the novelty, you can immediately see the inharmonious lines and the strange proportionality of the body. In front, there are headlights of an incomprehensible shape, an angular bumper, and on the side there are two lines of doors concave inward. However,car owners claim that all these shortcomings are immediately forgotten when you get behind the wheel of a pickup truck.
So let's move inside. The driver's seat is decorated quite well, the instrument panel is simple and clear. In order to find out the readings from various sensors, you don’t even need to open the instruction manual. The presence of seat heating is also pleasing - in a few seconds the chair heats up instantly. Drivers of northern latitudes will appreciate it. But that's not all. The navigation system deserves special praise, which is distinguished by its simple operation. By the way, in order to set a route, it is not necessary to stop the car on the side of the road - everything can be done on the go. Even the Honda CRV cannot boast of such a feature.
Pleasantly surprised by the presence of free space in the cabin. If you need to carry some bulky cargo, and the trunk is already occupied, you can take advantage of the interior space by folding the second row of seats under a flat area. Yes, listing the convenience and functionality of the interior, you really forget about the "reference" appearance of the car.
