minivan is set to debut at dealers on September 30 with a manufacturers
suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $27,800 for the value-oriented
Odyssey LX to $43,250 for the ultra-premium Odyssey Touring Elite, plus a
destination and handling charge(1) of $780 per model, American Honda Motor Co.,
Inc., announced.


With a wide range of
new features adding value for economy, comfort and convenience, the increase in
2011 Odyssey pricing represents a 2.5-percent difference on a sales-weighted
basis compared to the 2010 models being replaced (approximately $840 on


The completely
redesigned Odyssey improves for 2011 with greater interior functionality, a
more distinctive style and higher fuel economy. Across all available models –
the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and now, the new Touring Elite – more than 50
standard and available features have been added for 2011 to enhance comfort,
convenience, efficiency and travel fun.


"The all-new
Odyssey is set to once again redefine the minivan segment as the ultimate
family vehicle," said Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning
and Logistics for American Honda. "Never before has so much space,
functionality and comfort been combined with this much style, technology and
fuel economy."


enhancements to the interior include a new "3-mode" second-row seat
design that is more comfortable for center passengers (Odyssey EX and above).
The 2011 Odyssey is equipped with a total of five LATCH attachment points (four
in the Odyssey LX), the most of any vehicle currently available on the market
as of 2011 (up from three in the previous model). The one-motion, 60/40 split
3rd-row Magic Seat(R), one of the Odysseys original concepts and most
versatile features, is positioned for more legroom and is even easier to
operate for 2011.


Dramatic new styling
creates a more dynamic appearance unlike any other minivan with the
introduction of a tapered cabin and a signature "lightning bolt" belt
line. The lightning bolt belt line improves the outward view for third-row
passengers. The bodys enhanced aerodynamic shape along with engineering
improvements throughout the vehicle contribute to a class-leading EPA highway
fuel-economy rating of 28 miles-per-gallon (mpg) on Odyssey Touring models, an
improvement of 3 mpg compared to the same 2010 model and the most for any
eight-passenger minivan (seven passengers Odyssey LX).


A more powerful and
efficient 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management
(standard on all models for 2011) and produces 248 hp (+4 hp over 2010) while
delivering an EPA-estimated city/highway/combined fuel economy of 19/28/22 mpg
on Odyssey Touring models (18/27/21 mpg on Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L models). For
enhanced driving refinement on Odyssey Touring models, a six-speed automatic
transmission debuts as a standard feature. All other models receive the
five-speed automatic transmission.


New technology
available on certain models includes a rear entertainment system with a
16.2-inch ultrawide split-screen display and an auxiliary High-Definition
Multimedia Interface (HDMI) video input, an "intelligent"
Multi-Information Display (i-MID) with customizable wallpaper, integration of
FM traffic data on navigation models and much more. Thoughtful features have
been added throughout like the available cool box, front bag hook, available
flip-up trash bag ring and more. Popular features like the available back-up
camera and available conversation mirror continue to be offered.


An extensive list of
safety equipment comes standard on every Odyssey. The Advanced Compatibility
Engineering(TM) (ACE(TM)) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that
enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions.
Additional standard safety equipment includes Vehicle Stability Assist(TM)
(VSA(R)), commonly referred to as electronic stability control; anti-lock
brakes with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist; three-row
side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor; drivers and front passengers side
airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS);
