The 2019 Honda Odyssey certainly seems to punch above its weight gave the fact that it is rumoured t have undergone a makeover of sorts with more tech gadgets and features both on the inside and the out. The leaked 2019 Honda Odyssey pictures rarely do it justice but should give you a good idea on what to expect with the new model.
Let’s get one thing straightened out first, the new Honda Odyssey has retained most of the features of last year’s model and given the fact that it first debuted last year, that’s not surprising. But despite this, the automaker has managed to become more creative and have introduced more features that make this car, the perfect family vehicle.
The 2019 Honda Odyssey is more of a minivan but not along the lines of old clunkers with a flatbed in the back. It certainly looks like an SUV but one that’s engineered to take the whole family on one of those long camping trips.
The new Honda Odyssey is supposed to come with configurable second-row seats as well as a zoomable night vision camera so you can check on your kids late night and see if they’re okay. If the rumours are to be believed, the new model is expected to feature 10-speed transmissions along with a built-in vacuum cleaner. So let’s take a closer look at the minivan, shall we?
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Honda Odyssey is spacious and even the base trims come equipped with all the essential features with optional ones included in the top tier touring trim model types. What makes this model stand out is that it manages to repackage itself neatly and features innovative and creative tech, both on the interiors as well as the exteriors.
There are six trim levels but what makes the exterior panels stand out is the fact that Honda has neatly incorporated new LED headlights, LED running light shapes and Grille from its other models, accentuating its looks and making it look even sharper, in the process.
All the trim models come with active grille shutters which only serve to make it more aerodynamic and more fuel efficient. The top trim models come equipped with fog lights along with other additional features. Additionally, this model also comes with a sliding backtrack which neatly fits under the rear side windows.
The 2019 Honda Odyssey features several innovative features on the inside apart from the built-in vacuum cleaner to the zoomable night vision camera. It is spacious on the inside and the top trims come outfitted with plush leather though you can ask them to include this in the other trims and see if they oblige.
Given that it is designed for the family it comes equipped with storage trays, cup holders and spacious central console that you can use to store several things including diaper bags as and when needed. It also features state of the art entertainment system with a touchscreen infotainment panel along with heated steering wheels and optional heated front seats as well.
Features, Engine Specs Price and Release Date
The 2019 Honda Odyssey is slated to be priced around $32298 and comes outfitted with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, along with 280 horsepower and a ten-speed transmission. It is expected that the launch will take place around the end 2018 or it may get pushed to early 2019 but the one thing that we can count on is that a better family vehicle will soon be hitting the roads.
