Review
I think the Honda Freed Hybrid is the best mini MPV in its class. Why?

-The exterior design is clean and fuss-free unlike the ugly Toyota Sienta.
-The interior design is well laid out and has a zen-like quality to it. It is more spacious than the Sienta inside as well. Honda always knows how to create a practical and spacious interior which its competitors just can't emulate.
- The 1.5L Earth Dreams engine paired with the Electric Motor gives this car a very decent acceleration from standstill which can surprise other road users. Together with the dual clutch transmission, the whole driving experience is better than expected from a 1.5L Hybrid car.
- Typical Honda build quality means a very well built and solid car which can outlast the COE.

Only complaint that it is everywhere now thanks to PHV scheme and the engine can feel slightly sluggish above 100km/h.

What I like
- Simple and pleasing exterior and interior design
- Trusted Honda reliability, build quality and solidity
- Surprisingly quick acceleration off the line
- Very practical interior with folding seats

What I do not like
- Lack of mid range power above 100km/h
- It's everywhere thanks to PHVs

Review
Been driving Cat B Cars ( 2.4L above) for more then 15yrs, my previous car was 2008 vellfire. As i hardly use up the full space of the large MPV and every time when go for indoor parking, i need to look out the ceiling high too.

So, i decided to scale down the size to a slightly smaller MPV,
Viewed :
- sienta, space and car response when overtaking with full load 7ppl. Not quite acceptable.
- esquire and Noah - Above $130k selling price, and outlook not as stylish, feeling quite stiff and heavy on car response .
- Voxy, price slightly below 130k, basic model can even go below $120. Space and Feeling quite good to drive, the only issue is the seating ratio is 2.2.3 , i need 2.3.2 .
- Wish, Are the better choice, price 10k more then Freed, space quite the same as freed, but car responses is better then freed.
* At the end, need to compromise between price and power. So i decided on FREED HYBRID.

Over all for Freed, i prefer the hybrid model due to the gear knob, Custa LCD info, parking button ( Not foot brake, given u some space on foot) and engine more silence. Usually hybrid and non- hybrid car in market are 20k-30k difference. But now, with Gov grant its less then 8k difference. I strongly recommend this model for your consideration ( Honda Freed hybrid ).

What I like
1) Comfort - for that size and price range, i feel it is a value buy and comfort interior. not as stiff as some MPV.

2) Reliability - 1.5L and honda brand, not worry about high maintenance after 5yr. Battery not a big issue, if you do some study and research on hybrid. look at today number of hybrid car in singapore. u will get what i mean.

3) Handling - 1.5L wont expect to have sport car response , but it gave me quite a similar car response compare some Cat B car.

4) Exterior styling - not as sporty , but i like the decent look, not stiff look.

5) Interior design - i prefer the hybrid model due to the gear knob, Custa LCD info, parking button ( Not foot brake, given u some space on foot).

6) Features - With that price, wont expect to have vellfire features, but acceptable price and range.

7) Value for money - Excellent

8) Engine performance - Quite acceptable for that price and 1.5L range. some 1.5L car are way under power.

What I do not like
1) Only P.I carry it. AD did not bring in , Kah motor should consider this MPV on pipe line.

2) Sensing model maybe kind of useless here ( My personal view). i wont pay more for something i don't it .

3) Too many package / model in market , i only recommend ( Honda freed hybrid ) not the sensing model.

Review
Was actually looking for Sienta hybrid as I did not know about Freed Hybrid in the first place. Upon visiting a few dealers then come to know about this compact MPV. With no local reviews on this car, I can only based on reviews on some other Honda models with i-vtec and i-dcd. No comments on fuel comsumption yet as i only did my first 1000km servicing. Before this was only about 16km/l with 20% Highway.

After owning the car for 2 weeks, I dare say I do not regret my decision with the Honda Freed Hybrid.

What I like
1. Pickup is acceptable and smooth despite eco mode ON
2.Multi-Function steering wheel
3. Keyless entry and push start
4. Auto headlights
5. Electrical retractable side mirrors
6. Adaptive Cruise control
7. Dual power sliding 2nd row doors
8. 2nd and 3 rows are bench seats instead of captain seats
9. 2nd row seats are built 2+1 instead of 1.5+1.5. This does not affect middle passenger to sit "half assed" when the 2 movable seats are not aligned.
10. 3rd row seats fold up then keep into floor board; individual preference

What I do not like
Foot e-brake
No auto brake feature when halt; similar to Vezel
