2011 Honda Odyssey Minivan Officially Revealed [45- Photos]

After teasing us at this year’s edition of the Chicago Motor Show in February with the Odyssey Concept (see here), Honda has finally pulled the covers off the production version its new eight-seater minivan that will begin arriving in U.S. showrooms this fall.

Minivans aren’t the most exciting-looking vehicles on the road, and the new Odyssey won’t change that notion. Nevertheless, the new styling and the 1.6-inches lower roofline give Honda’s minivan more character and presence over the current model.

Compared to the outgoing 2010 Odyssey, the 2011 model is said to be wider (Honda hasn’t yet released full details) and promises to be more functional and roomy with better interior lighting.

New interior features include an available entertainment technology that introduces high-definition connectivity and split-screen viewing.

For now, all we know about the powertrain options is that the 2011 Odyssey will be offered at least with Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine, with the Japanese company estimating a fuel economy for this model of 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
