Honda launches new JDM Odyssey, Mugen chips in [w/video]
The Odyssey is offered in B and G trim with a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter I-VTEC four-cylinder mated to a continuously variable transmission with optional paddle shifters and seven 'speeds.' The more upscale Odyssey Absolute features sportier styling, and but all models are available in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The interior follows a "modern suite" design concept inspired by luxury hotels, with wood trim and comfortable-looking seats. Additionally, customers can choose between models with a lift-up second-row seat or a lift-up front passenger seat. Honda highlights the Odyssey's low floor height and high ceiling, which accentuates the spacious interior. The low floor also endows the minivan with a step height of 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) at the rear sliding door to afford easy entry.
Mugen upgrades consist of separate styling packages for the base Odyssey and the Odyssey Absolute, an exhaust system with one or two tailpipes, suspension upgrades, a wide selection of 18-inch and 19-inch wheels and more. Head on below to watch a video of the Mugen-tuned Odyssey.
