2017 Honda Odyssey spotted testing in California – Spied
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Expected in showrooms from H2 2016.
The 2017 Honda Odyssey was spotted testing in the hills of Southern California by Motor Trend, featuring a full body camouflage. The next generation MPV is expected to arrive in showrooms from H2 2016.
The final exterior design of the next generation Odyssey was leaked in patent images, which appear to look similar to the Odyssey sold in Japan. It features a 2016 Honda Civic-inspired grille design, quad-section Jewel Eye headlights and contemporary styling changes. The sliding mechanism of the rear door appears to have moved closer to the window on the fifth gen model.
Under the hood, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is likely to source power from a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated i-VTEC V6 gasoline engine from the 2016 Honda Pilot, which produces 250 hp. Paired to the only engine option is likely to be a 9-speed automatic transmission.
The new Odyssey will rival market leader Toyota Sienna which is available with all-wheel drive as well as the all new Chrysler Pacifica MPV that made its premiere at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show this month.
