Honda Odyssey Concept

Honda developed the next-generation Odyssey, offering sleek styling, new functionality and higher fuel economy to best-selling minivan. The new concept will be on display at the Chicago Auto Show. It has lower roof-line and wider stance that offer a stronger and more dynamic presence with improved aerodynamics that help increase fuel economy. All its new elements are combined to create a dynamic and distinctive appearance from any perspective. Aggressive body-to-wheel proportions reduce the perception of vertical height common to most minivan designs. The projector beam headlights of the concept, LED taillights and form-fit fog lights further heighten the sophisticated quality of the design. The fuel efficiency is increased by enhanced aerodynamics and advanced power-train technologies. The model is expected to achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 MPH in the city and 28 MPG on the highway on select models. The Odyssey has been the best-selling minivan since 2008 in America and it is being produced only in Alabama by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama. Both the concept and production vehicles, along with all development activity for the 2011 Odyssey, are being designed at Honda R&D Americas in Torrance, California and also Raymond, Ohio. The model has won different awards and critical acclaims. The starting price for 2008 was $135.495 and $100.133 for 2009.
