Honda N-Box Slash G A Package

Honda N-Box Slash Review: “I could really feel the fine quality of the original grade” by Naoto Shimazaki

The unique edition of the N-Box Slash stands out because of its attractive two-tone color. The G A Package, albeit plain, exudes this car’s original charms.

The car I test drove had a pearl white body color with a beige interior. This edition has a completely different aura, giving it a neat and feminine look. The instrument panel’s outline of design is the same as the one in the N-Box, but the outline in the N-Box Slash feels higher in quality because it has only one color, has a bright decorative panel, and has silver rings for its left and right air vents. The resin of the front pillar’s inner trim has a bright color, giving it a relaxing atmosphere.

It does not have a sliding door for its backseat, but the door is wide and comfortable enough for passengers to easily get on the car. It’s a kei car, but it will make you want to invite someone for a drive.

The combination of the 14-inch tires and the naturally-aspirated engine (with idling stop system) that outputs 58ps/6.6kgm match this grade’s power and ride performances. It gives you satisfactory power when needed and offers smooth performance when driving on city streets, making it perfect for daily use.
