The Honda Stream is a compact MPV manufactured by the Japanese automaker Honda since October 2000. Its exterior design is a mix of compact MPV and station wagon; and its height (less than 1.6 m) makes it hard to classify it precisely. Handling characteristics are more like a smaller hatchback than any other comparable compact MPV. A second generation was officially presented on the 13th July 2006. The first generation Honda Stream (Body codes: RN1/2/3/4/5) went on sale in Japan on October 27, 2000. It was largely based on the Civic, with the same flat chassis but added 100mm in length to accommodate the third row of seats. In advertising and promotional brochures Honda describes it as a sporty 7-seater. The first generation Honda Stream was available with a 1.7L D17 engine and a 2.0L K20, equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a 5-speed automatic transmission with sequential mode respectively. For some export markets, a manual version was also offered.
