2011 Honda Odyssey: First Look with Mike and Josh
Unlike any Minivan you've ever seen, Honda introduces its fourth generation Odyssey this week. This is the ultimate family vehicle targeted for the y generation starting to have children. Toyota decided to target this market with its newly designed Toyota Sienna, aka Swagger Wagon, a few months ago and really set the bar for a hip twist on minivans. This type of minivan has never been seen before...until its biggest competitor came out of nowhere and one upped them.
Safety, quality, reliability, and style are just a few characteristics that can describe this new Honda. The Odyssey is wider and lower than the model it replaces. Under the hood is a 3.5L engine with 248 horsepower. This new minivan gets 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. It has the same trim levels as the third generation models: LX, EX, EX-L, and EX-L RES (Rear entertainment system), Touring, and Touring Elite. The Touring Elite has a "cold box" in the lower center stack that keeps beverages cold while the vehicle is running. How cool is that!!
The interior has an expensive and upscale look much like an Acura. It has Bluetooth capability and heated seats. There is a "lightning-bolt" beltline. The "bolt" is functional, as it improves outward visibility from the third row seats. Instead of a 6 in dash cd player, there is 2GB of memory to store music inside the car. An EX-L Touring model has navigation of 60 GB of memory. They also have an HDMI cord for video games or Bluray players, 5.1 Surround Sound w/ 16.2 inch Ultra wide Entertainment System.
Please call Michael Hammond at 610-828-1400 ext 1128 or Josh Chalpin at ext. 2828 for more info or to set an appointment to check out the all new 2011 Honda Odyssey.
2012 Honda Odyssey Test Drive & Minivan Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/odyssey/2012/ The 2012 Honda Odyssey may be the best minivan you can buy. It is comfortable, it performs well, and it is very practical. The base model Odyssey Minivan retails for $28,225. The top of the line Odyssey Touring Elite model is $43,675 but comes packed with tons of equipment and technology. There is enough seating for 8 passengers which makes the Odyssey a great bargain for those who need to carry a lot of people. The 2012 Honda Odyssey minivan is powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine that produces 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque. There is some really cool Honda technology called VCM (variable cylinder management) which can cut the usage from 6 cylinders to 3 or 4 cylinders which aids in fuel economy. The Odyssey gets 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
The 2012 Honda Odyssey is a wonderful total package if you are in the minivan market. The Odyssey has a good warranty and the resale value for this van is very high meaning it will hold its value well.
