Honda Odyssey JDM

Honda has taken the wraps off their new Odyssey Absolute and JDM- spec Odyssey.

The fifth generation of the Odyssey brings a more generous interior with three rows of seats, a new powertrain and platform, a more stylish exterior design and a great fuel economy. The new Odyssey comes with sliding rear doors, a very low floor and a higher ceiling than its predecessors resulting in a spacious vehicle. Apart from the roomier interior, the new `ultra low platform` combined with an enhanced suspension brings an easy to handle and stable ride due to the lowered center of gravity. The height is of 1.325 mm and offers a similar level of head clearance in the second and third row of seats, thus providing a comfortable traveling environment for all passengers even when the car is packed up.

The second row of seats brings footrests, as well as articulated and adjustable backrests which make the seat base rise offering an optimal reclining angle. The seats in the third row are divided into three segments, this gives each passenger the possibility to set the preferred reclining angle without interfering with the other occupants` space.

The 2.4 liters DOHC i- VTEC engine powering the Odyssey Absolute is a combination of VTEC*3 and VTEC*4 technologies, both developed by Honda. The engine features the direct fuel technology enabling a high power acceleration. The Odyssey B, G and G EX are powered by the new 2.4 liter DOHC i- VTEC engine featuring port injection technology for an enhanced output and torque as well as a better fuel economy. The CVT brings an enhanced transmission efficiency for a powerful acceleration and fuel economy.

For a safer drive, Honda includes state of the art driving support systems such as the Smart Parking Assist system, Blind Spot Information, Collision Mitigation Brake System and the City- Brake Active system.
