New Honda Odyssey 2009 Reviews And Specs



Honda projects a fourth generation Odyssey to arrive in 2010. As of October 2008, Honda is reconsidering its target of starting sales of diesel-powered autos in 2009. Japan's Nikkei English News reported earlier that Honda would put off sales of diesel vehicles in the U.S. and Japan until at least 2010, citing a company executive who wasn't identified. The delay is the result of difficulties in reducing costs to make the engines, Nikkei said. [7]This delays an already existing diesel already sold in Europe. A diesel V6 is not currently sold by Honda anywhere. Honda is developing a "low-emission diesel V6 engine specifically designed for the U.S. market for the 2010 model year." It is expected to have a new diesel plasma-catalysator for ecology demands. The redesign of the Odyssey will include new exterior styling, updated interior features, and most likely introduction of a high-mileage V-6 diesel engine to go along with an updated gasoline V-6.


a 5-door body style, with a much sleeker, lower, and more car-like appearance. For the first time cruise-control appeared on the JDM Odyssey. The 4WD version has received the new DPS system. The seat folding mechanism was changed again. The height of the new Odyssey was lower than ever - designed with multi-level parking in mind, particularly for Japan. The new Odyssey came with the Honda K24A i-VTEC engine, a 2.4 L unit producing 160 hp (118 kW); this was the same engine used in the CR-V and Accord. A 4WD version (RB2) came only with an automatic transmission, while the 2WD version came only with a continuously variable transmission. The V6 engine was dropped completely. Instead, a 200 hp (147 kW) forced variant of the K24A engine was adopted for the sporty Absolute version (190 hp (147 kW) with 4WD), which was only equipped with an automatic transmission - both the 2WD & 4WD variants. Moreover, this new engine had the same fuel consumption as the old 2.2 engine. All this resulted in the new Odyssey becoming a sales success. In Australia, the Odyssey achieved its best-ever sales year in 2005, and outsold the Toyota Tarago for the first time.Assembly Sayama, Japan, Guangzhou,China
