Honda taking new Odyssey concept to Chicago show

Honda’s Odyssey has been a sales success globally in its current form but now it’s time for a redesign. The present model has been on the market since 2005 with only minor tweaking, and keen rivals are making a play to be the new minivan kingpin.

To guard its position Honda has announced that it will unveil a new concept version of the Odyssey at next month’s Chicago Auto Show, showing what the engineering-focused company’s fourth-generation minivan will look like.

Honda is making promises that the next Odyssey “will further enhance its hallmark qualities of innovation, quality, safety and fun-to-drive character, while increasing its overall efficiency.”

Honda has already given a clue to what the next Odyssey will look like in the SkyDeck concept (above) from the Tokyo Motor Show last October. The six-seat MPV was all pimped out a suitably over-done interior, Lamborghini-style front doors and a hybrid drivetrain. The Chicago showcar is expected to be significantly more toned-down than the Skydeck, and it will likely lead to the eventual production version.
