The corporate grille that's been inflicted on all of Honda's recent cars and trucks continues to spread roughshod through the rest of the automaker's line and the 2010 Honda Odyssey minivan isn't immune. While it's hard to get excited about a vehicle that's sole purpose in life is to transport humans and their stuff from one place to another, the Odyssey has always been one of the best options available, and while we're anything but smitten with the new schnoz, it isn't going to change the driving dynamics, and you can't actually see that six-sided, angular beak from behind the wheel anyway. The new grille joins a front-end that looks a bit more aggressive and better integrated than before, with what appears to be a steeper slope towards the ground from the windshield. The rest of the van appears unchanged.

      Honda's don't sell on looks.That's for sure.
      If they sold hot looking vehicles they'd own the market.

      As long as the Accord coupe doesn't get the grille-within-a-grille them I'll be happy. That one of the few good looking cars Honda/Acura has produced in the last few models years IMHO. The only thing this grille looks OK on is the Ridgeline, and that's mostly due to the Ridgeline's poor looks than anything else.

      What in the f**k is going on over in their styling department there? I'm not even sure they know.

      Horrible. It is akin Honda has some Pontiac designers lurking in its studios, adding plastic clading to the grilles.

      I like cars.

      I like my Odyssey, generally for different reasons than I like cars.

      However, when you add on a schnoz this ugly, it kills whatever appeal the thing had.

      huh. Why is that a good idea?

      I don't know who's in charge of grille design at Honda/Acura, but maybe they should take a break...

      Someone really needs to tell Honda that this shield nonsense is just plain awful. You'd think they would get the hint after a while, or simply look at it and determine it's hideousness, but apparently not.

      I'm surprised the 2010 is just a facelift rather than a full redesign, given that this generation came out in 2005.
      I liked the 2008-2009 grille. This one is just UGLY. It makes it look less like a minivan and more like an ugly SUV.

      lame.

      God, make it stop! Does someone at Honda have an HDMI port fetish or something?

      This is a fake. It's been disseminated and dismissed on numerous forums by now. So all the "it's ugly" comments can now cease.

      With the Odyssey just getting a facelift, it's probably a fair bet this is just someone's photoshopped image.
