Before we get into any details let us start off by telling you that the Japanese domestic market (JDM) Odyssey minivan is a different model than the one sold in the States. What you see here is the forth-generation JDM Odyssey which will go on sale in Japan tomorrow, October 17 with Honda claiming that it will be able to push out around 4,000 units per month in the domestic market. The new 7-seater minivan’s styling is apparently inspired from Honda’s latest models and especially from the European market Accord Station Wagon (see here). -Continued
Available in both AWD and FWD variants, the Odyssey is offered exclusively with a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that can be hooked up to either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a CVT gearbox. According to Honda, the Odyssey achieves an average fuel consumption in the Japanese combined cycle of 13,2 km /lt which translates to an overly optimistic 7,6 lt/100 km or 31-mpg.
