New Honda N-Van that looks like a Land Rover
Honda N-Van that looks like a Land Rover. That's right you read, a mini van with the face of Land Rover. Check it out below!
People love the design of the new Land Rover Defender, taking inspiration from the Japanese tuner's ESB style for some pretty quirky tuning kits.
After releasing the TFENDER based on the Toyota ProBox, the company applied a similar treatment to the Honda N-Van, transforming it into the “Hondafunder”.
The redesigned bodykit includes a new front bumper, with a new grille and air intakes that reflect the Land Rover SUV look with the necessary adaptations for the kei car's tiny nose.
The Honda N-Van already had Defender-style round LED headlight graphics, so no modifications were needed for them.
The Honda emblem is gone, but there is the “Dafunder” inscription on the hood.
The profile didn't need as much work, other than the crossover-inspired two-tone paint job and the body-color square island in the greenhouse reminiscent of the Land Rover Defender.
The tuner also added a suspension lift kit, increasing ground clearance by 25mm (1 inch) for an adventurous stance, in combination with the 14″ white steel wheels shod with grippy all-terrain tires.
But most importantly, unlike the genuine Defender, the N-Van comes with sliding rear doors, making it more practical in this context.
Moving backwards, it's hard to imagine how a small van would look like a beefy SUV, but the tuner did its best with minimal changes to the body panels.

The new rear bumper received a faux aluminum skid plate, and the vertically mounted taillights received special coatings, making them slimmer and a bit more robust.
At the end of the day, the rear 90% is covered by the tailgate, so there wasn't much to do. Here, the Honda emblem is combined with a “Hondafunder” lettering, revealing the imposter nature of the vehicle.
There are no modifications under the hood, meaning the Hondafunder comes equipped with the standard 660cc three-cylinder petrol engine that produces up to 63 hp (47 kW / 64 hp) in its most powerful, turbocharged form.
The same engine is used in the passenger-focused twin N-Box and the mechanically related N-One city hatchback.
Power is transmitted to the front or all four wheels via a CVT gearbox.
