Concept car has one large sliding door for front and rear passengers

Honda is showing off a concept SUV at the 12th Auto Expo 2014 held in India. The concept car is the Honda Vision XS-1 offering sporty styling on the outside with a large interior for hauling lots of people.

The SUV concept has three rows of seats and can seat seven people. The vehicle features a single large sliding door that is like a van. The big thing here is that sliding door opens for the front seats and backseats in one unit.

The profile of the car looks like a coupe with not door handles at all. "The Honda Vision XS-1 is a creative study model which embodies Honda's vision for the future of manufacturing. Based on Honda's original M/M (man maximum, machine minimum) concept*, the Honda Vision XS-1 fuses together two different values, a sporty exterior styling and amazing spaciousness, in the compact body. Furthermore, based on the Honda design concept, "Exciting H Design," Honda's human-centered design concept was embodied in this model," says Honda.

Comic-Con 2014 opens tomorrow, but details on many of the big reveals have been blasted across cyberspace over the past couple of weeks. Pertinent (sort of) to our milieu was Mattel’s release of its Star Wars–themed Hot Wheels cars, but even more mindblowing is the fact that the company built a full-size, fully operational version of the Darth Vader–themed coupe, which it has dubbed the “Darth Car.” Unfortunately, San Diego, the site of the annual Comic-Con International convention, is ...
