The Odyssey is a minivan made and engineered by the Japanese company Honda in 1994. The vehicle was designed during the country's economic crisis in the 1990s which heavily influenced the car's size and overall concept. The Odyssey was marketed to the American market as a larger version of the original, whilst the smaller size was kept for Japan.
The first generation was based on the Honda Accord platform with a 4-speed automatic transmission and unibody construction. It had 3 rows of seats with the third row folding flat to allow for extra cargo space. The LX trim had two front bucket chairs with a removable mid-bench. The EX could accommodate 6 people and had a roof rack, alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof and keyless entry.
The first Odyssey was engineered by Kunimichi Odagaki and was imported to Northern America as a truck. In order to create a vehicle suitable for the USA, Honda did extensive research into the target market before developing the prototype. In America, the Odyssey was utilized by the New York City Taxi service and Limousine commissions. It was chosen for its size and reliability.
Throughout the generations, the Odyssey has stayed largely recognizable with the 5th generation debuting at the Northern American International Auto Show in 2018.
The Odyssey now had a 10-speed automatic gearbox and was actually the first 10-speed that Honda produced. There were numerous trim levels available, LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite. All the variations had the Honda safety package with Honda sensing, forward collision warning and Lane departure warning.
Other notable changes included the magic slide 2nd-row seats and cabin watch, a system that alerts the driver to the presence of and children or animals in the car via video. All these models had a 3.5-liter V6 280 hp as standard and had a timing belt. 2021 saw a facelift that went on to win Japan’s car of the year after breaking the Honda Civics record for sales.
