In the FR-V, this version replaces the two petrol engines available in the previous range (a 125 hp 1.7-liter and 2.0 liter 150 hp).
What is peculiar of this car which has six seats arranged in two rows of three seats. In each row, three occupants are better than other carriers because the interior of the Honda FR-V is wide. However, only in the front seats are wide enough for people of normal corpulence, the rear seats are narrower and the center seat of the rear seats is worse than the one in the front seats. That is, if you have to travel five, it is better to be three in the front seats.

The front driver’s airbag is standard and is situated on the steering wheel. If the central square in front a child travels, Honda recommends delaying the rear center seat to the maximum
