Honda Kiwami Concept

The Japanese aesthetic sensibility and values are expressed in this unique vehicle, with its quietly strong, minimalist stance.

The interior design reflects the Japanese sense of a luxurious, relaxing atmosphere. The latest in clean-running fuel cell technology meets the beauty of traditional Japan in this new premium sedan.

A new premium sedan with a cool dynamic design

A square design with vertically positioned side windows sets off the car’s striking, wide-bodied, low-slung form.

Advanced yet simple design captures the Japanese sensibility

The interior design is based on the kind of feeling a person experiences when contemplating a carefully tended garden, or watching the interplay of light and shadow on a paper screen. The KIWAMI’s unique aesthetic harmonizes advanced features such as an exterior information display and panel-touch shifting with a traditional Japanese sensibility for the ultimate in comfort and hospitality.
