The latest Step WGN is the fifth-generation version of the Honda minivan, and features a rear door design that allows for a side-opening door placed within the tailgate. This gives rear passengers easy access to their seats, while also providing comfortable access for rear cargo loading.
The special rear gates are dubbed 'Waku Waku' (meaning 'exciting'). They're certainly exciting for rear passengers tired of being treated like second-class passengers and looking for some respectable level of comfort. The door has a wide top-hinged tailgate with a sub-door, and opens sideways for easy passenger access.
The Step WGN is a great example of how designs that are seemingly set in stone can and should be tweaked and altered to provide greater functionality and comfort on the road.
