The Japanese company is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its popular minivan. Therefore, the upcoming 2020 Honda Odyssey brings a special package to honor the event. One of the new features will be the 10-speed automatic gearbox, available on all trim levels. Furthermore, the special anniversary package includes a chrome roof rack, lower door garnish, body-side molding, and chrome rear bumper protector.
Also, the illuminated plates and special badging on the front fenders, key fob, and tailgate are available as well. Honda will bring a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission with a fuel-saving engine stop/start function. The transmission is connected to a normally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 unit, which produces 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy ratings will 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway for a combined 22 mpg.
2020 Honda Odyssey Design
The forthcoming 2020 Honda Odyssey is a family-oriented minivan with an attractive yet advantageous design. The ultra-modern look and the accessible access features, such as power-sliding doors, make this model very practical an eye-pleasing. Also, available 19-inch wheels follow the same path of the body design, providing more road-ready feeling to the whole vehicle. The exterior design includes darkened rear windows that wrap around the back. At the same time, the rear windows cleverly hide the track from the sliding door.
On top of that, the LED headlights with auto on/off function will help the driver to see the road better while using less energy. The Odyssey offers a couple of very stylish accents that will give the minivan the unique finishing touch. For example, the chrome door trim is made of high-quality materials for long-lasting durability and made exclusively for the Odyssey to fit perfectly.
Also, the roof rails and crossbars work with the customer’s pick of roof attachment. So, you can safely haul gear, bikes, or skis to the roof box. Besides, the body side molding looks very stylish, and it will protect the vehicle from door dings. The same thing is with the chrome bumper protector. This feature improves the overall appearance while helping in preventing scratches during loading and uploading.
