According to the information our team has got recently, the minivan-enthusiasts and lovers of those family adventures can start looking forward to one of the most popular models in this type of market – the Honda Odyssey, since it is coming back soon as a redesigned 2019 model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Honda Odyssey, this model is going to make its appearance as a modern family minivan with three-rows seating configuration. Since the Odyssey was recently updated for the year 2018 when it revealed some serious changes and improvements in terms of body design, you shouldn’t expect anything drastic to change on the upcoming model. It won’t change its platform shared with the Pilot model and its shape and overall dimensions will remain the same as the ones seen on its predecessor. Of course, the new Odyssey will get much more attractive and eye-catching exterior features, but these will be only slightly refreshed and include some minor updates. For instance, the Odyssey will seem sportier and a bit aggressive, especially in the front fascia. The only innovation could probably be spotted on its redesigned grille which will get active shutters. The lighting system will use the latest LED technology. This minivan is also expected to be more practical and functional due to its sliding back doors that will enable easier access. The upcoming Odyssey will be available in several trim levels and some new body paint options..
As we have already mentioned, the 2019 Honda Odyssey should be more practical and functional for all those families that choose this model for their long journeys and everyday tasks. Its cabin will provide three rows of seats that will be covered in high-quality materials and more comfortable than the ones in its predecessor. The cabin of the new Odyssey is also expected to be quieter thanks to some advance noise cancelation systems and better-quality soundproof materials that Honda will use. Therefore, you can enjoy your ride even more since the outside noise and vibrations will be significantly reduced. The driver will also love all those high-tech updates and an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system. Honda will also pay attention to safety and include systems and features such as airbags, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.
The 2019 Honda Odyssey will probably keep using its 3.5-liter V6 that produces the output of 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The other option might come with a 2.0-liter turbo-four that hits more than 300 horsepower, but the numbers haven’t been confirmed yet. Honda will probably introduce a brand-new ten-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Honda Odyssey Release Date and Price
The 2019 Honda Odyssey should hit the market by the first quarter of 2019, but the release date hasn’t been announced yet. The price of this minivan should start around $30,930.
