Think you have to wait until next week's official unveiling to see pics of the new Honda Stream interior? Think again.

2007 Honda StreamHonda has teaser images of it up on the new Stream website, but they're interactive Flash thingys that require you to move the camera to see everything. Enter carblogger  Paul Tan, who has those shots posted in their full glory. The only navigation required is your heading over to PaulTan.org to check 'em out.

As for the interior, it's very nice, and the dash is reminiscent of the one in the new Euro-spec Civic Type S that we showed you at the end of June.

Thanks to Paul for the heads-up!

      That steering wheel from the Civic coupe is so ugly and it looks like a jock strap cup. Unfortunately it's beginning to find its way in a lot of other Honda vehicles...at least this has a non-digital speedometer readout.

      That is quite nice (better than the hodge podge Civic speedo thing). Just take the shifter off the dash (does the manual version come there too?). Three row seating is a plus as long as you don't get rear ended...looks like a back breaker. Overall, very nicely packaged IMO.

      Actually, Speed42, GM makes a really nice compact MPV for Europe: The Opel Zafira. Since Opel and Saturn are joined at the hip now, there's always a chance it could come here. Follow the link.

      Sam you are exactly right munchkins to the rear. Not everyone carrys a full load of adult passengers. Families have kids, kids are small and flexible, so what seems like a problem for you would be great for some people. My wife insists on three row seating for our next ride. To keep them out of arms length of each other would be a big plus on long trips! I think the new Tahoe is great but I need to move people not mobile homes. You say this is a class dominated by the Japanese...it is not, they are just the first to bring them to north america. I would consider the Zafira too if GM would remove that posterior stick and bring it here. Oh, and GM... I'll take mine with a diesel!

      Yeah, sam, because anybody needing extra passenger room also needs to haul them from Los Angeles to Seattle every single time they get in the car. Give me a break, you really think this thing competes with full-size SUVs? Sounds like you're the one smokin' the bad ganga.

      Sam, you blithering idiot, did you ever consider, even for an instant, that people in Europe (there are more people there than in the US) sometimes have large families, and they sometimes want to put them all in one car? Guess what? They don't drive a pickup truck that's been converted into a makeshift minivan by General Motors or Ford.

      Guess what? You get out of North America, and most parking spots won't take a Suburban or Excursion. Hell, some roads won't even take them. Your ignorance is jaw-dropping.

      And, Japan and Europe tend to build very stylish designs that must compete in very competitive marketplaces with low customers loyalty. The Big 2.5 wrap an American-flag around themselves, start belting out Lee Greenwood-esque drivel, and sell garbage to Americans who should be smarter.

      Why can't we have this in the US?
      • 8 Years Ago
      I agree, sam. Europe has always been one of my least-favorite countries. (*snort, laugh*)

      You know, you guys really have to try out a Mazda 5 sometime before you judge MPVs. It's amazing how much space you can fit into a two-box design when it's not compromised by a truck frame's high floor. And yes, the tiny third-row seats are very cramped for adults, but so are those in a Ford Explorer or Toyota 4Runner. MPVs ride and handle better, too.

      I know there are people who legitimately use their Tahoes and Expeditions for towing and trailering. But please don't tell me that all Tahoe/Expedition/et cetera buyers genuinely need a 6,000 lb towing capacity. Steve B. is correct that American families are no larger than those in Europe, and that the vast majority of us would be well-served by an MPV (with the advantage of superior handling and the ability to go 2-3 times further on a gallon of gas). If we could get over our I-need-a-tank-for-personal-protection paranoia, we might even enjoy driving them more.

      As for the Stream's interior, it looks pretty decent to me, if a bit discordant in its styling. It's certainly no worse than a Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe's.

      There have been compact MPV's in the US for quite awhile but no one seemed to care much about them before. Mitsubishi sold the Expo & Expo LRV, (which was also sold as an Eagle Summit & Plymouth Colt Vista), & Nissan had the Axxess. I owned a Plymouth Colt Vista for 10 years. I loved it. I could take out the rear seat and put 2 mountain bikes, a weekends woryth of clothes, a cooler, and my dog. It never broke down, ans was ok on gas. They even had all wheel drive versions. I guess it was too far ahead of it's time. The version before it was BUTT ugly though...

      Typical Honda. Hideous as always. Stick to making motorcycles and yard equipment.

      Dig the cool blue lights ringing the cupholders, btw. Nice interior. I'd buy one of these things if it came over. If I had some of that stuff...whatchamacallit...money.

      they could compete with the mazda 5 with this
