2017 Honda Odyssey spied testing in USA
Posted on: May 4, 2016 - 7:34pm IST
Expected to debut in H2 2016.
Ahead of the expected debut later this year, the all-new fifth gen Odyssey has been spied yet again, in California by TFLcar reader Dimitri.
The North American-spec fifth generation Honda Odyssey, with some market-specific styling changes, will look very similar to the JDM-spec fifth generation Honda Odyssey, leaked patent images revealed late last year. The North American-spec model gets a different grille design, Jewel Eye headlights and different bumpers, tail lamps and curves on the body.
The all-new Honda Odyssey will be based on the third generation Honda Pilot’s platform which underpins the third generation Acura MDX as well. The Chrysler Pacifica rivaling minivan will likely be powered by the same 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine that powers the 2016 Honda Pilot and 2017 Honda Ridgeline linked to a 9-speed automatic transmission. There’s no word on a hybrid or a plug-in hybrid powertrain as of now.
The 2017 Honda Odyssey could go on sale in late 2016 or early 2017.
