Honda released a compact sedan series “Honda Grace” in the end of 2014. Gasoline cars joined the line-up in 2015 June, although they only had Hybrid ones at the beginning time. Honda published the compact sedan series after an interval of five years, which made it a focus of public attention.


Honda Grace
Weight: 1,110 - 1,270 kg / Displacement: 1.496 cc / Drive: FF or 4WD
Capacity: 5 / Price: 1,750,000 - 2,382,000 JPN (tax in)
N.B.: Compact Sedan Series Based on "Honda Fit."

Why do we choose Hybrid? It must be for something economical. Their public news said “Honda Grace could drive in 34.4 km / L, more economical than Corolla Hybrid produced by Toyota.” You can select FF or 4WD and then, it is supposed to help your life.

Here, let me explain about FF and 4WD for just a while. That is how to drive the car. FF means a front-wheel-drive one. 4WD does four-wheel-drive and the driving power equally divides among the four wheels. It gives you settle running and is useful at snow-covered roads, sandy places and frozen ways.

In the case of compact cars, either will usually work enough on safety and operability. However, you are supposed to feel easier with 4WD when you live in the northern areas which force us into going with snow in winter. “It is supposed to help your life” mentioned above, then.




The English word “grace” includes the meaning of “elegance” and “splendid.” You will right away recognize what it means, for wideness at the rear seat, silent driving and comfortableness. Car fans can be satisfied with the sound of pressing the gas pedal.

In the first place, what kind of people does desire to drive sedan cars? They must want something only car-like and long to drive usual steady ones. Like me, the fans firmly have stood by. The compact sedan “Honda Grace” is supposed to please them.
