Honda Malaysia will begin selling the second generation of the Honda Stream MPV next month. The price has not been announced yet but it is known that it will come with a 1.8-litre engine therefore it should be cheaper than the present one which has a 2.0-litre engine The units which are sold through its authorized dealers nationwide will have a 3-year factory warranty and free maintenance for the first six months. There will also be promotional offers for Stream parts and services at all authorized Honda dealers.
“Honda cars have a strong following here in Malaysia and we are confident that the All-New Stream will be well received,” said Honda Malaysia MD/CEO Atsushi Fujimoto.
“In the tradition of Honda’s dedication to provide products and services of the highest quality at reasonable prices, the All-New Stream will be packaged to delight our customers with its latest product features and specifications coupled with extensive after sales warranty and services,” he added.
Like the first generation, the new Stream (which was launched in Japan in July 2006) is a practical MPV combining dynamic styling features, advanced drivability and a real sporty image. When the first generation was launched, it offered a new 7-seater value concept based on three themes: a design anticipating the changing needs and style of the 21st century; sporty performance for the individual, and an innovative approach to interior space, comfort and refinement.
Following its introduction, the Stream recorded strong sales globally, with a total of 285,744 units sold. In the Japanese market, the average monthly sales exceeded the original target of 6,000 units to reach 10,000 units per month. It was one of the main contributing automobile models to Honda’s worldwide 2001 fiscal year financial results. Over the years, the Stream has also accumulated a string of awards in the region, testimony to its innovative design and practicality.
The new generation, which boasts a series of improvements from the previous generation, has been well received in the various markets in the region and Honda Malaysia expects a similarly enthusiastic response from Malaysian customers.
