HONDA SHUTTLE HYBRID FACELIFT
The cabin provides: high noise insulation, air conditioning, comfortable chairs with a solid supply of space.
For Europe, the Shuttle is equipped with an automatic hydromechanical gearbox and transversely located, upgraded 4-cylinder 16-valve petrol engines of 2.2 and 2.3 liters with the same power of 150 hp, which allows it to reach speeds of up to 183 km / h, accelerating car to "hundreds" for 12 seconds. Although fuel consumption is not small - in the city of about 14 liters per 100 km.
The first was installed on the Shuttle, released before 1998, and the second - after. The 2.3-liter unit is more modern - it is equipped with the famous Honda VTEC system, which changes the time and degree of opening of the valves depending on the engine speed. By the way, the creators timed a light restyling to the appearance of the new engine - the grille received a chrome edging and the emblem was slightly modified.
Independent multi-link front and rear suspension energy-intensive and provide a minivan high comfort while driving. In conjunction with a powerful engine and automatic transmission make the Shuttle one of the best cars in terms of dynamics in its class.
All Shuttle equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission. At the same time, the so-called 2-shaft M47A gearbox was fitted with a 2.2-liter engine, and a 3-shaft MDMA with a 2.3-liter engine.
The gearshift lever in the Shuttle is placed on the steering column, so this car has an important advantage compared to most competitors - it has a flat floor and you can easily pass through it from the front to the rear seats.
Depending on the configuration Shuttle offers: central locking, power steering, bagel with height adjustment, electric windows, electric exterior mirrors and their heating, air conditioning, automatic gearbox, cruise control and driver airbag.
The braking system of a minivan is very effective. It is equipped with all disk mechanisms and the ABS system.
Shuttle is a great car for both business and leisure.
And yet there was no such demand as overseas in Europe for Shuttle, therefore in 2000 deliveries to the European market were stopped, and the vacant place was taken by a more compact model Honda Stream. While in other countries, the minivan continues to be sold.
