The new minivan will come with Honda's hybrid powertrain that is going to make it a more fuel-efficient vehicle. The new minivan seems to have an evolved body design when compared to its preceding model with its two-box proportions, a flat tail and a horizontal window. At the front of the van, the new headlights that come with LED turn signal give it a more dynamic look- while the grille comes with a satin-chrome surround.
