The Honda Acty is a series of cabover microvans and kei trucks produced by the Japanese automaker Honda since 1977, designed for the Japanese domestic market (JDM). "Acty" is short for "Activity".
The Acty’s primary competitors are the Subaru SambarSuzuki Carry/EveryDaihatsu HijetMazda ScrumNissan NT100/NV100 Clipper and the Mitsubishi Minicab.

The Acty range is designed to be economical, agile work vehicles, and generally lack luxury options, although air conditioning and power steering are available along with various trim, decoration, and customization options. The first generation was produced from 1977 to 1988 (model series TA, TB, TC, VD, VH), the second generation's years were 1988-1999 (model series HA1, HA2, HH1, HH2 with the E05A engine; HA3, HA4, HA5, HH3, HH4 with the EN07A engine - the Street continued in production until 2011) and the third generation's years were 1999-2009 (model series HA6, HA7, HH5, HH6 with E07Z engine) with the van still in production. The fourth generation was introduced, as a truck only, at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show in 2009 on December 17, showing the HA8 series and continuing to use the E07Z engine. Since the merger of the Subaru Sambar and Daihatsu Hijet, the Acty truck has become the only remaining Kei truck not to have a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.

The second generation Acty was launched in March 1988 with the introduction of the Honda E05 engine, with an additional cylinder added, making it a 547 cc 3-cylinder with SOHC. The engine is rated 34 PS (25 kW) at 5500 rpm and 4.5 kg⋅m (44 N⋅m; 33 lb⋅ft) at 5000 rpm.[6] The first models were the Acty truck and van, with the commercial grade Acty van appearing a month later. The 4WD models (HA-4) were no longer available with an automatic transmission. There was also an "Acty Attack" version of the truck, intended for farmers in particular this model has a differential lock in the rear and features Ultra-Low forward and reverse gears (UL/UR). The other models of STD, SDX, SDX2 and TOWN had slight variations with the TOWN and SDX2 adding a color coded (white) bumper and tachometer. The TOWN features tweed seats with a brown interior (as opposed to "vinyl" like seats on STD models). The only other notable options were a light for rear work area and radio.[6]

The original Actys have distinct round headlights while the Street has large, rectangular headlamps.[6] The truck and van originally shared the same taillights. After the March 1990 facelift the Acty received the same headlights as the Street, while all models grew longer by 10 cm (3.9 in) as the result of altered kei car regulations. At this time the Street also received the taillights from the contemporary Honda Today(which were also used for the third generation Acty van). The 1990 changeover also meant that the 547 cc engine was replaced with the larger 656 cc Honda E07A engine (with fuel injection added in 1996). The carburetted version of this engine produced 38 PS (28 kW) at 5300 rpm and 5.5 kg⋅m (54 N⋅m; 40 lb⋅ft) at 4500 rpm. The Street could reach a top speed of 115 km/h (71 mph), while the four-wheel drive version only could attain 105 km/h (65 mph).[7]

In October 1993 the Honda Street's front design was changed yet again, receiving larger, more square headlamp units. A PGM-FI version in "Fox" and "Xi" equipment levels was also introduced to the Street at this time. This version produces 44 PS (32 kW). The front end changes were applied to the Acty as well, beginning in January 1994. The Acty and the Street were further modified in January 1996 when the turn signals were changed from amber to clear. At this time, the fuel injected Acty SDX-Hi was also introduced - only with two-wheel drive and a five-speed manual - with the same engine as the Street Xi (the Fox was dropped, replaced by the carburetted Street V). Production of the Acty continued until the arrival of the third generation in 1999, although the Honda Street continued to be built until 2001 as it was only partially replaced by the pricier Honda Vamos.
