What we are about to review today, is nothing close to Afeela. It was the result of a collaboration between Honda and Sony. Recently, it has been on exhibition at the Japan Mobility Show and surpasses all other cars in design and unity!
Slightly different, today we are going to have a look at Afeela Sedan 2026. You must be thinking that 2026 is too far away to review a car. Let us clear up your confusion, in 2026 one of the most advanced software-based Honda+ Sony Joint Venture is scheduled to come.
It’s not just an electric car, but generally a software car on the wheel, (you can say a computer on the wheel). In 2026, you are going to have something, that’s never been done before. We are confident that, in the automobile industry, no one has ever done it!
What do we have in Afeela Sedan 2026? You will find out soon in our article below. Read it till the last and find out the answer.
Live in the 90s Retro Look with Afeela Sedan 2026
You will have so many features onboard that you could never imagine. We bet Afeela 2026 is going to oversmart the features of other electric vehicles too.
The Name: So, what defines the name of this new tech-stuffed Honda+Sony venture? We are pretty sure it’s going to follow the legendary, A~Feel~A. It may take some time, but the logo from the same place confirms it!
Sony Honda Mobility Inc. purely wanted it to be the car that you ride with emotion and prestige. Two As stuffing the word, ‘Feel’ is all about to offer you the 90s retro vibe.
Drive Mode: AWD
Tire Size (front): 245/40R21
SuspensionFront: Double Wishbone
Take a look at the elegant options,
A High Rich Media Bar
The Afeela Sedan 2026 is going to feature a rich media bar, that’s nothing like before. It will send messages to different channels. Also, not just one, you will have multiple infotainment systems inside. Together, three panels build up the large display.
All together it looks like one large screen, but you can play different things on different screens. Such as, the top left screen is the rear viewer camera, similarly, you will have another one on the right side too.
In addition to this, you will also have some updated versions of the new generation software for future electric car buyers. So, if you are someone who is always in love with new tech, Afeela Sedan 2026 won’t disappoint you at all.
Perfect Symmetry Would Blow Your Mind
Wait for the best car! The car is perfectly symmetric from every angle you see it. Anyone who would get a sight of it would know that’s the Afeela Sedan 2026 riding on the road. It’s unforgettable.
As reviewed by Kirk, a famous YouTuber, he had the opportunity to review this car physically, he said, the car already delivers a perfect retro vibe from the 90s.
So, if you remember the Subaru SVX, it’s really your opportunity to live the moment again. Afeela 2026 really somewhat looks similar to the 90s futuristic Subaru SVX.
Smooth Finish with Uniform Arches
Touch the surface of the car, you will have the smooth feel of pebbles! Yes! Even though the hood is divided, you will not feel a gap between them. There’s no denying that, the Lexus Concept Car has a lot of edgy lines. But, Afeela 2026 has undivided lines to begin with!
The hood is one piece! Look at the wheel wells (the opening space to hold the wheels), exactly the same color as the body.
The bumper of the car only has an active shutter right at the bottom without any additional elements. You will have perfect support for added aerodynamics and improved range (no specific details on numbers have been revealed yet).
The Minimalistic Backside of the Car
Get to the interesting part of the car, it’s the cocoon-shaped backside, that looks like an egg! It looks premium and comparatively better than the concept. People who had a glimpse of the car at Japan Mobility Show, can’t help but accept how clean the design is.
Take A Look at the Interior
The real glam is hidden in the interior. In short, you have hardly seen a car with as light an interior as the Afeela Sedan 2026. The seats are easily adjustable. The rich electric tech and speaker system, with an elite stereo system, purely adds value to Sony’s traditional style.
And, you know what? The volume knob is not just the volume knob! It offers multiple functions—synthetic leather and super light in color.
In the automobile industry, we bet any car has a built-in fragrance that makes you feel precious. Get ready! Because the Afeela Sedan comes with a built-in fragrance tool! Feel as precious as you are.
Speakers come from all directions, and you won’t have a trace of the speaker covers around you.
Let’s not forget how we discussed the integrated PlayStation at Afeela: Computer on Wheels. It only gets better with the upgraded car. You can not only stream games with the PS5 controller but also watch movies as you like.
You can move the center console, which is quite similar to the Genesis products, such as the Genesis GV60.
Sensors & Cameras
Also, let’s not forget the high-quality cameras and sensors. We have 45 sensors. With this, this Honda car can reach up to a new level of autonomy and safety.
You can easily select the drive, with the single use of a knob. Just push it down or twist it to access different functionality as you like. The auto brake hold will help you with parking brakes on both sides. It’s as linear as it should be.
The PS5 controller, for example, connects to the internet 5G. The car offers an internet subscription which will help you stay connected, with access to endless Sony media.
Everything included, the Afeela Sedan 2026 represents the high-tech features of Sony and the robust car style of Honda.
Super Simplified Backspace:
Most of the modern electric cars have elevated hoods. Afeela has genuine horizontal doors without a power knob, similar to Genesis G90. Also, talk about comfort, it’s going to be the best 5 comfort seater of 2026.
You will feel like sleeping into it, after a long hectic day. The interesting part is, that all passengers from the backseat get individual display screens. However, not all of us would love the lumber support. But the padding is necessarily the best.
Getting back to the sound system, it’s so impressive that you will have built-in speakers attached to the back of the front seats. You will have access to the full glass roof, and more cameras to assist you in the backspace. Safety is double assured here.
We think the inside of the car gets a bit more Tesla touch, and that makes us think, the compulsory target customer would be Tesla users.
The Motto Behind Afeela Sedan 2026
Sony Honda Mobility Inc., also released in the show that, they don’t want the design on the exterior to be necessarily the showcase, they want to deliver a smooth experience and want the interior to be actually in the focus because the technology and the software are worth the showcase.
The ultimate goal of the Sony Honda joint venture is to earn the world’s top-grade, AD/ADAS tech with the supreme sensor tech from Sony and combine it with Honda’s safety tech. The car is stuffed with many intelligent technologies.
They made it clear that it’s about time to develop a level 3 autonomous driving system that can be optimized for specific conditions. Plus, the high-quality driving assistance also features level 2+ autonomy for urban and other chilly situations.
The Question Remains,
Everything aboard, Afeela Sedan 2026 is similar to the 95% production model. The question remains, what’s the price?
Since the car was put in an exhibition, only a little information was played on board. We still don’t know much about the car, except for the fact that it’s coming in 2026.
The prototype in the exhibition shows some promise and we believe it will hold up to the standard of not only Sony but also Honda.
Even though a lot of electric cars are shipping onboard recently, with the high-tech and built-in software, we believe it’s going to be a handsome sum of money.
The Best Catch?
Ask us, and we would answer, it’s the PS5 controller. We grew up with PS5 and played games with it! And, now together, Sony Honda Mobility Inc. is bringing something new.
It’s catering to our memory inside the car. No denying, the Sony Honda joint venture is beating Apple in this. Netizens say it’s an Apple car but a Sony version.
Our assumptions and article are based on the prototype previewed at the Japan Mobility Show. We only know a few of the super tech features of the prototype. But what we have learned so far,
The Afeela 2026 Prototype offers 800 TOPS of max computing power for the electric control unit (ECU). It also holds the revolutionary system on a chip (SoC) from the Snapdragon Digital Chassis.
SoC holds some good impressions in the automobile industry. It has revolutionized the way cars operate, communicate, and interact with the atmosphere. Additionally, it offers you a customizable, safe, and secure move on the road.
You must have read our article on Honda’s Computers on Wheel: Afeela, which was before the Japan Mobility Show on Nov 5, 2023.
In this exhibition, we can’t believe we get to see a full-fledged standing prototype in front of us! The outlining, the edge, the structure – all are just too perfect.
It’s a perfect reconditioning car for a lot of Tesla lovers and Apple users. You can’t help but guess, which customer segment would fit the car perfectly!
In reality, the elegant look of the car featured takes us back to the Subaro days. It resembles a lot like the retro car from the 90s. No wonder, Subaro at that time, was known as a car ahead of its time!
We have to wait another two years to hear about the actual price of the car. And we believe, the original Afeela 2026 is going to be a real hot piece of the year 2026, that is we are yet to find out!
