2010 Honda Odyssey

2010 Honda Odyssey Sets High Standard for Refinement and Versatility

Efficient and accommodating with 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 with 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 with 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 with 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.

2010 Honda Odyssey'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.

The Odyssey achieves the highest crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, five stars, for both frontal and side impacts2.
All Odyssey models are equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®), commonly referenced as electronic stability control; standard anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution and Brake Assist; advanced dual-stage, dual-threshold driver's and front passenger's SRS front airbags; front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); three-row side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor; active front seat head restraints; daytime running lights and a pedestrian injury mitigation design in the front of the vehicle. An Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure provides enhanced occupant protection in a frontal collision.


Designed with families in mind, a total of three Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) child seat attachment systems are available. Two are located in the outboard second-row seating positions and one is located in the middle third-row seating position.

The 3.5-liter, all-aluminum, SOHC VTEC® engine on the Odyssey LX and EX produces 244 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 240 lb-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm. The Odyssey LX and EX models achieve an EPA-rated city/highway fuel economy of 16/23 mpg1 . A 5-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment.

The Odyssey EX-L and Touring models feature a 3.5-liter, all-aluminum, SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 engine with VCM for enhanced fuel efficiency. This engine produces 244 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 245 lb-ft. of torque at 4,900 rpm while achieving an EPA-rated city/highway fuel economy of 17/25 mpg1 . This VCM engine is programmed to run on 3, 4 or 6 cylinders, based on current power requirements. Powered by the intelligence of i-VTEC technology, VCM quickly and seamlessly activates or deactivates 2 or 3 cylinders by closing each cylinder's intake and exhaust valves at the same time. The system provides V-6 power when accelerating or climbing, as well as the fuel efficiency of a smaller engine while cruising.
