2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite minivan revealed

Honda has pulled the wraps off the redesigned 2011 Odyssey minivan.

Looking virtually identical to the Odyssey concept, which was unveiled at 2010 Chicago Auto Show, the van features a bold grille (similar to the one used on the Accord Crosstour), a distinctive “lightning-bolt” beltline, which increases third row visibility, and a roof-mounted spoiler. The top-of-the-line Odyssey Touring Elite boasts HID headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, 12.6-inch ventilated front disc brakes, power side mirrors (with integrated turn indicators), and a power tailgate.

Inside, the Touring Elite has a premium audio system, GPS navigation, a rear entertainment system (with split-screen capability and an HDMI input), a 150-watt AC power outlet, leather seats, second row captain’s chairs, a “one-strap stowable 3rd Row Magic Seat”, 15 beverage holders, and a trash bag ring! (No, we’re not joking)

While the company declined to release performance specifications, the Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine. Thanks to three-mode Variable Cylinder Management, the Odyssey has an EPA estimated fuel economy rating of 19 mpg city / 28 mpg highway.

Look for more information to be released ahead of the van’s launch this fall.
