The Odyssey’s soft lines and first-class features make it instantly clear that the car is among the best MPVs on the road. Honda has fitted strong yet stylish 17-inch alloy wheels as standard and front fog lights, which make sure the car is seen in poor light, are available as an option. High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps illuminate more of the road ahead and door mirrors with integrated indicators let other road users know the driver’s intentions. Access to the roomy cabin is easy through the large sliding side door that can be opened remotely for ease of use.
Settling inside the cabin surrounds the occupant with space ,whether they are at the wheel or in the back. The Odyssey seats up to eight but motorists can choose to stow away the seats on the second or third row to meet their cargo needs. Other important items can also be stored close to hand using the centre console box or rear console box. With the EX-L model, an electric sunroof with tilt is fitted to bring more fresh air and sunlight into the cabin for added comfort and enjoyment.
The level of technology included within the Odyssey reinforces its premium nature. The entry-level LX specification includes a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) as part of the audio system. Motorists can connect an external device to it via USB or auxiliary input and enjoy their own choice of music.
To stay connected and safe when on the move, there is also a Bluetooth Hands Free Telephone (HFT) system. In the range-topping Touring version, a sophisticated DVD rear entertainment system, HDMI video jack and rear-view camera are all included.
This large MPV has been fitted with a powerful engine to help carry eight people plus luggage confidently. The powertrain is Honda’s 3.5-litre 250HP V6 i-VTEC, which produces ample torque to respond the instant the pedal is pushed. Power is delivered to the road through six-speed automatic transmission.
Safety is also among the Odyssey’s main strengths and its features protect both occupants and other road users. Standard active technology includes Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) which identifies and corrects oversteer and understeer. Meanwhile Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) help to keep the driver in control when braking heavily.
If an accident occurs there are driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags plus front active headrests to lessen the impact forces.
