On February 5, Honda announced that it was adding hybrid models to the Odyssey and Odyssey Absolute and there it was making minor changes to the gasoline model.
The gasoline model is equipped with a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC engine. With its idling stop system and eco-driving coaching function, it manages 14.0km/L (JC08 mode), which puts it at the top of its class.
The improvements to the gasoline model aim for better comfort and include large arm rests for the driver’s seat and fully automatic plasmacluster air conditioning.
The Absolute will now come with the Honda Sensing safety system as a standard feature. Other standard features include the Collision Prevention Brake, which is activated automatically in emergency situations, and Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses radar and camera to adjust driving speed automatically.
It is also equipped with a colored bumper for improved aerodynamics, special 18-inch aluminum wheels, a dark chrome plated front grille with large openings, and LED position lamps. A specialty setting has been added to the suspension for better comfort.
