2011 Honda Odyssey an Ultimate Family Vehicle

November 3rd, 2010 by

The all new 2011 Honda Odyssey will redefine the “minivan” market, much as the 1st Odyssey did when introduced in 1994. Dramatic new styling creates a more dynamic appearance unlike any other minivan with the introduction of a tapered cabin and a signature “lightning bolt ” belt” line.

Completely redesigned, the 2011 Odyssey offers families greater interior functionality, a more distinctive style and improved fuel economy. Across all available models the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and now the new Touring Elite, more than 50 standard and available features have been added to enhance comfort, convenience, efficiency and travel fun.

“The all-new Odyssey is set to once again redefine the minivan segment as the ultimate family vehicle,” said Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda. “Never before has so much space, functionality and comfort been combined with this much style, technology and fuel economy.”

2011 Honda OdysseyMost notable enhancements to the interior include a new “3-mode” second-row seat design that is more comfortable for center passengers and capable of handling up to 3 Child seats (Odyssey EX and above). The 2011 Odyssey is equipped with a total of five LATCH attachment points (four in the Odyssey LX), the most of any vehicle currently available on the market as of 2011 (up from three in the previous model). The one-motion, 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat, one of the Odyssey’s original concepts and most versatile features, is positioned for more legroom and is even easier to operate for 2011.

A more powerful and efficient 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management (standard on all models for 2011) and produces 248 hp (+4 hp over 2010) while delivering an EPA-estimated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 19/28/22 mpg on Odyssey Touring models (18/27/21 mpg on Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L models). For enhanced driving refinement on Odyssey Touring models, a six-speed automatic transmission debuts as a standard feature. All other models receive the five-speed automatic transmission.

New technology available on certain models includes a rear entertainment system with a 16.2-inch ultrawide split-screen display and an auxiliary High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) video input, an “intelligent” Multi-Information Display (i-MID) with customizable wallpaper, integration of FM traffic data on navigation models and much more. Thoughtful features have been added throughout like the available cool box, front bag hook, available flip-up trash bag ring and more. Popular features like the available back-up camera and available conversation mirror continue to be offered.
