Honda JDM Odyssey pure minivan excitement

Honda JDM Odyssey pure minivan excitement

Honda JDM Odyssey fq

Minivans are traditionally unexciting and bland people movers, the design team at Honda don’t believe that for a second. They have already created the Honda JDM Odyssey, which is known as one of the best handling minivans in Japan, and now for 2009 they are going even further. A new sleeker exterior will sit over a reworked chassis sporting double wishbones at all four corners, optional all-wheel-drive and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC powerplant putting out 171 hp in standard form and 203 hp in the range-topping Absolute model.

The interior comes with all manner of high tech tidbits including a sci-fi inspired dash and a new multi-positioned camera system that allows drivers to get a bird’s eye view of the vehicle. The seating is smart and can be arranged in a multitude of layouts including folding flat into a bed. Good times for new Odyssey owners everywhere.
