2010 Honda Odyssey Sets High Standard for Refinement and VersatilityEfficient and accommodating wîth a fun-to-drive character, the Odyssey offers something for the entire family
The 2010 Honda Odyssey continues to stand apart from the minivan crowd wîth a reputation built on innovation, quality and engineering excellence.
The Odyssey's alignment of features like an engaging-to-drive character, a 3rd-Row Magic Seat®, a premium appearance and efficient engine performance combine to offer a sophisticated transportation environment wîth room for up to eight people (seven on LX models). The available 244-horsepower V-6 engine achieves an EPA highway fuel-economy rating1 of 25 miles per gallon (mpg) on models equipped wîth Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®), a system that can deactivate up to half of the engine's cylinders when less power is needed. Available premium features include a leather-trimmed interior, Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System, DVD rear entertainment system, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink™, a backup camera, power side-doors, power tailgate and much more.
'A minivan is tough to beat when it comes to carting your kids around or to moving the maximum number of people in maximum comfort and efficiency,' said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of Product Planning for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. 'Beyond the superior functionality inherent to a minivan, the Odyssey offers customers convenient seating versatility, a high-quality feel and a reputation for surprisingly engaging driving dynamics.'
With its One-Motion 60/40 Split 3rd-Row Magic Seat®, the Odyssey's seating areas can quickly and easily adapt between passenger and cargo duties. The 3rd-Row Magic Seat can accommodate up to three passengers and still provide 38.4 cu-ft. of cargo volume behind the seats, or fold completely flat into the floor to create 91.1 cu-ft. of cargo volume while still maintaining room for five passengers (four passengers on LX). With the second-row seats removed, total cargo volume expands to 147.4 cu-ft. Total interior volume measures 209.8 cu-ft. for passenger and cargo volume combined. The unique 2nd-Row PlusOne Seat™ on the Odyssey EX, EX-L and Touring integrates a storage bin inside the seat structure and is also removable to create a walk-through to the third row.
