Want a glimpse into what Honda has in store for its future models? Check out the video recently released by the automaker that reveals the brand’s new interior design philosophy.
As highlighted in this exciting announcement, future Honda models will be designed with a fresh approach in mind, specifically pertaining to their cabin layouts.
Explained by Johnathan Norman, Creative Lead for Honda Interior Design in the U.S., the new viewpoint is called “simplicity and ‘something.’” Simplicity puts focus on the perspective of the passengers by maximizing visibility through the windows and windshield. “And something” adds a particular uniqueness for each model to boost positive emotional response.
Although this sounds like a change in course, it’s not really a new approach for Honda. For years, the automaker has followed a similar “Man Maximum/Machine Minimum” approach that prioritized passenger satisfaction. “Simplicity and ‘something’” is just a return to this tried-and-true, human-centered strategy.
So, if you’re a fan of traditional Honda models that prioritize user experience over complexity and practicality over extravagance, we think you’ll like the design of future models coming to Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo, California. In the coming years, you’re going to see “simplicity and ‘something’” employed on Honda model interiors of the 11th generation Civic Sedan and family SUVs when they’re revamped for their next generations.
