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.

In December 2003, Honda debuted a DI 2.0 L engines with improved fuel efficiency.

It was facelifted in January 2004.

The second generation Honda Stream (body codes: RN6/7/8/9) is offered internationally in two specification levels. The lower-end spec features the R18A 1.8 liter SOHC i-VTEC (2-stage) engine with a 5-speed automatic gearbox (and a 5-speed manual transmission in some countries). The higher-end spec features the R20A 2.0 liter SOHC i-VTEC engine with variable length intake manifold, a CVT transmission and optional 7 speeds paddle shift function for FWD models; or a 5-speed automatic transmission that comes with AWD models. The RSZ model also comes with firmer damping shock absorbers with anti-roll/sway bar for the rear setup.

From April 2012, only RSZ model is available.

Stream RST (2009-2012) & TS (2010-2012)Edit

This variant of the Stream has only 2 rows of seats (5 seats). For the RST model, a combination of the removal of the third row seat and adoption of light weight 17" alloy wheels reduces weight and improves handling and acceleration; the handling is further enhanced by suspension tuning and a tailgate spoiler is also added.

Stream ZS (2009-2012)Edit

A ZS model available only in FWD was added in Sept 2009.
