Arriving at dealerships August 21, the refreshed 2021 Honda Odyssey has received a number of upgrades to styling, technology, and safety that include an upgraded Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment.
A new grille, front bumper fascia, and select blackout trim give Odyssey a fresh, bold look. Inside, Odyssey offers upgrades to functionality, comfort and luxury. Revised second row seats now fold nearly flat, making them easier to remove while enhancing cargo-carrying options. All Odyssey trims also get new piano black trim on the dash, doors and front door handles, and new tri-color floor mats.
Exclusive to Odyssey Touring are premium touches such as perforated leather for the first and second rows seats, with contrast stitching and piping on all three rows. Touring trims also feature a new dash trim, illuminated second and third row USB ports, and second-row seatback pockets, along with newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels and auto-dimming side mirrors.
Powered by a 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 engine with 280 hp, all Odysseys come standard with Honda’s 10-speed automatic transmission with Idle Stop and push-button start. The engine also utilizes Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), with the capacity to seamlessly switch between three- and six-cylinder operation, helping Odyssey achieve EPA fuel economy ratings of 12.2/8.5/10.6 L/100km (city/highway/combined).
All 2021 Odysseys will now feature LED headlights as part of a new front-end design that includes a new front bumper fascia with redesigned fog light housings, and a bold new blackout grille topped by a chrome strip. Odyssey Touring receives newly styled machined 19-inch wheels, painted in Shark Gray.
