The new Honda Odyssey stands out from the crowd in most places where it matters, especially space.

The Honda Odyssey was first introduced in 1994 and subsequent generations were diverged to reflect variations for different markets.

Since the model year 1999, Honda has marketed a larger Odyssey in North America as well as a smaller one currently in its fifth generation, in Japan and other markets, including Singapore.

Two variants are available locally for the all new Odyssey, the EX-S that houses up to eight people and the EXV-S you see here that can sit seven.

The Odyssey continues the tradition of looking less like a van, thanks to the pronounced front and rear flared guards as well as a chrome belt line that runs the length of the car

Exterior


To be honest, we initially thought the designers had left something out when the first images of the new Odyssey surfaced. But our fears were put to rest when we saw the car in its sheet metal - it is actually quite a looker.

Honda kept its focus on designing a people mover that tries to look like anything but a people mover.

The new design has progressed to keep the swept-back form of the previous generation, as well as pushing out the extremes to give it a more slab-sided profile.


The new Odyssey looks almost like an SUV from the front, but the deep bumper bar that sweeps back along the side profile makes it appear as though it is hugging the ground.

The rear also does well to hide its van-like proportions, mimicking the front in the way it wraps around with trapezoidal taillights.

17-inch wheels help to anchor the Odyssey's strong road presence



 
Standing at 4,830mm by 1,820mm (1,800mm for EX-S trim) by 1,695mm  (L x W x H), the new Odyssey has grown in all dimensions and is now 30mm longer, 20mm wider and 150mm taller than its predecessor.
