The Honda Stepwagon Owners Club.

Honda Stepwagon overview

First Generation

The first generation of the Honda Stepwagon, (actually - the Stepwgn), was launched in Japan in 1996 with a range of 2.0 litre L4 petrol-engined, automatic, five-door compact MPV's, carrying up to eight passengers. A choice of two different centre seat types made the Stepwagon a real Multi-Purpose Van, easily converting from a people carrier, to a load carrier, to a mini camper.

A limited edition of five-seat, N-type Stepwagons was released in small numbers between 1999 and 2001.

Second Generation

The second generation of the Honda Stepwagon / Stepwgn was released in Japan in 2001. Enhancements to the vehicle were few, with minor bodywork changes, but the Gen II models did include a new, more poerful 2.4 litre L4 petrol engine and a choice of 4 speed (2.0l) and 5 speed (2.4l) automatic transmission.

Third Generation

The third generation of the Honda Stepwagon / Stepwgn, launched in Japan in 2005, was a complete make-over of the range. Introducing a new, low-platform chassis, the length and height of the vehicle was reduced yet the interior accommodation space remained unchanged! As a result of the new, lower chassis, the handling charecteristics improved too.

Still available in both 2.0l and 2.4l petrol engines, the 2.4l models come with CVT transmission as standard.
