2020 Honda Boxy Sporty Step WGN Modulo X Changes, Specs, & Review – Want a minivan? Your local Honda seller will be only also pleased to hook you up with a new Odyssey. But if you live in Japan, your choices are a lot more extensive. And they include the Step WGN.
2020 Honda Boxy Sporty Step WGN Modulo X Review
First launched in its domestic market back in 1996, the Step WGN is now in its fifth generation. Like the Stream, the Step WGN is based on the very same platform as the Civic. But where the Stream is a lot more, well… sleek, the Step WGN is decidedly boxy. The high minivan with its high roof features a modern tailgate. Referred to as Waku Waku (Japanese for “exciting”), it can either open up or split up and down to open to the side. There are equally hybrid and traditional versions available, but the top of the heap is the Modulo X.
The sportiest version boasts a 1.5-liter turbocharged VTEC engine, driving the front wheels via a CVT. And it boasts the improved suspension and aero kit to choose it. The most recent version of the Honda Step WGN Modulo X becomes a new infotainment screen that’s not only larger but cuts down on glare. The 10-inch monitor replaces the previous 9-inch screen, operating an upgraded navigation system.
Customers (in Japan) can select among seven- or eight-passenger designs. Prices range from 3,419,280 to 3,716,280 yen, which functions out to about $31-34k at existing trade rates. That is just for the top Modulo X model, however. The base model begins at a much more sensible 2,455,920 yen (~$22,500), and still comes with the full Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance technology.
