Honda claims that the 2016 Freed has the largest cabin in the compact minivan segment, and that with the Freed’s ultra-low floor, users can stow tall objects in the car, and also fold the seats and use them as a bed if needed.

Honda has opted for a full-digital instrument cluster, a touchscreen entertainment system, column-mounted gearlever, and optional wood-grain finish for the dashboard. Customers can also choose between three seat colors – Mocha, Beige and Black.
