Honda Stream for Sale in Nigeria
In production since 2000, the Honda Stream is a compact MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) which is manufactured by Japanese automobile manufacturer, Honda. Compact in size and having handling capabilities of a hatchback, the Honda Stream still offers drivers with the space they require in a small sized minivan. Sold mostly in LHD (Left Hand Drive) automobile markets, it is most popular in Japan, Singapore and other Asian automobile markets. The Honda Stream was not manufactured for the North American automobile market, which is where most of the vehicles that come into Nigeria originate from. However, we have quite a number of Honda Stream models available in the country for purchase at reasonable prices and this is where Jumia Car Nigeria makes it easier to search for such vehicles.

How is the design of the Honda Stream?
The Honda Stream has a cabin that can comfortably seat seven passengers, because of its third seat row option. That row can be collapsed to provide cargo space, and the second row seating can also be collapsed further. With many features similar to the Honda Civic, what you might most likely find in the cabin of the Honda Stream are; premium cloth upholstery, a standard stereo system with auxiliary and CD facilities, and in some higher trims, one could get steering wheel controls. The exterior also resemblances the Honda Civic, only that it is a larger car. With two generations produced currently, it has seen two major facelifts, one in 2004 and another one with the second generation which was produced in 2006.
What are the best features of the Honda Stream?
A very practical car, the Honda Stream is applauded for its cargo and passenger carrying capacity and surprisingly, its off road capabilities. Also, many owners of the Honda Stream have tagged it as a fun car to drive. Another distinctive feature about the Honda Stream is how reliable it is. These would be what we consider as standout and distinctive features of the Honda Stream, not necessarily its looks or design.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Honda Stream in Nigeria
Unlike most vehicles which are imported, the Honda Stream comes into the Nigerian automobile market from European and Asian markets, as there are none produced for the North American market. Many, if not most automobile technicians would advise people looking to purchase used vehicles to opt for the foreign used ones (Tokunbo), unless they find a very neat and problem free Nigerian used (Registered) vehicle to purchase, which would normally come at a lower price than the Tokunbo one.
What is the best Honda Stream year to buy?
The Honda Stream has seen only two generations of production, and we would normally advise you to buy the most recent year of production, which is the 2014/2015, but we could recommend any year of production of the Honda Stream, as not many changes have been made to it since manufacturing began in 2000. Aside from facelifts and a few interior updates, both generations of the Honda Stream are good options to buy.
