2016 Honda Odyssey review, redesign and changes

The Honda Odyssey is probably one of the most appreciated full-size minivans in the US. It managed to achieve that through constant development, one of the smoothest engines in the industry as well as a level of comfort which has yet to be matched by any of its competitors. The 2016 Honda Odyssey is going to be based on the same platform and unlike what most people think it will actually be a massive redesign of the older generation.

2016 Honda Odyssey Exterior

Exterior of the 2016 Honda Odyssey is same as before which would fit just perfectly with Honda’s new range of cars. The black-surround grille on front fascia is also surrounded with back-trimmed headlights, foglights and with lightweight aluminum muscular hood. The new Honda Odyssey 2016 has usual aggressive styling as well as it will feature a lot more equipment than before. This is because Honda wants to make this minivan the best in class and they are planning to achieve that through one of the most radical design Honda managed to put on the market to date. It is available in six trim levels: LX, EX, SE, EX-L ,Touring and Touring Elite.

Interior of Honda Odyssey 2016

Inside the 2016 Honda Odyssey will be just the right amount of luxury to make the passengers feel right without making the car too expensive. Most of the commodities are going to be included in the standard version with a few extras along the way. The Honda Odyssey 2016 will be able to fold third row of seats which boost space for more cargo. Beside that it will feature 3-zone automatic climatic control, 5.1 Dolby surround sound system, start/stop push button with keyless entry, HondaVac system, LaneWatch safety camera system, rearview camera with parking assist.

Honda Odyssey 2016 specs

Honda didn’t release any information about what will be under the hood of the new Odyssey but there are only two options which are suitable for it. There could be a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 270 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque which will be the natural upgrade from the older model. This would provide the level of smoothness required and together with the 6-speed automatic it should be fast enough for the car itself. The only drawback of this engine is the average fuel consumption of nearly 23 MPG.
