The fifth-generation Honda Odyssey has arrived with a new design, a host of new features, improved fuel efficiency and state-of-the-art technology. As Stephen Collins, Honda Australia Director described it: “As one of Honda’s most awarded models, the outgoing Odyssey set a high benchmark. We’re sure we’ll be finding room in the trophy cabinet for this new model as well. Now that we offer an eight seat option, it opens the vehicle up to a wider market and we are pleased to introduce one of Honda’s most-loved vehicles to a new audience.”

Both the 8 seat VTi and 7 seat VTi-L feature a 2.4 litre DOHC i-VTEC engine, delivering 129kW at 6200rpm and 225Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine is coupled with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with torque converter and paddle shift, delivering dynamic driving and outstanding fuel efficiency.

Both variants feature Honda’s ECON Mode and Eco Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist, Tyre Deflation Warning System, six airbags (including third row) Idle stop, Daytime Running Lights, Halogen headlights with auto on/off and cruise control with steering wheel mounted buttons.

The VTi features cloth trim, a retractable third row seat with 40/20/40 split fold, MacPherson strut front and torsion beam rear suspension, power sliding door with remote open/close for passenger side, two-speed intermittent windscreen wipers and rear window wiper, HDMI jack and two USB ports, Hill Start Assist, power windows with remote open and 17 inch alloy wheels.

The VTi-L adds a multi-view camera with Smart Park Assist, Blind Spot Information System and Cross-Traffic Monitor. Another highlight is the second row Captain’s Chairs with arm rests and ottoman. All seven seats are finished in leather trim and the front seats have heating.

The new Odyssey is the first vehicle in the Honda range in Australia to feature the next-generation of Honda’s audio system: Display Audio. The touch screen displays audio functionality, hands-free Bluetooth functionality as well as system information.

The all-new Odyssey is on sale now with prices starting at $39,000 and topping at $47,600.
