Say konichiwa to the Honda N-WGN and N-WGN Custom. The Japanese carmaker is bringing these tallboys to next month’s Tokyo Motor Show, where they will sit alongside the S660 Concept roadster, a crossover based on the new Jazz and the NSX Concept, amongst others.

No details have been revealed so far, but the pair are clearly a part of Honda’s new N-Series kei cars (three so far: N Box, N Box+ and N-One). We wonder how they will be positioned with regards to the N Boxes, as both N-WGN and N Box are mini MPV-shaped. The N Boxes have sliding rear doors and the N-WGNs don’t, though, so perhaps we’re looking at something bigger than the N-One but smaller than the N Box.


As you can see, the N-WGN Custom (top pic, foreground) gets a different headlamp and grille assembly, an aggressive-looking front bumper with fog lamp housings, a different rear bumper, side skirts, thin-spoked sports wheels and a tailgate spoiler.

Inside, there’s a three-spoke steering wheel and a simple, uncluttered dashboard with lots of cubbyholes. The Custom’s interior is the dark-coloured one, featuring metallic trim on the dash, air vent and door handle surrounds, fabric/leather mix seats and an upgraded instrument panel that features a rev counter and white backlighting for the multi-info display.
