The updated Odyssey due this year will reportedly wear a revised front fascia with LED headlights, receive boosted levels of equipment (such as hands-free, gesture operated doors) and more safety features.
Powering the new Odyssey will be carryover engines, including a 129kW/225Nm 2.4-litre petrol engine and, in overseas markets, a 2.0-litre petrol-electric hybrid shared with the Accord sedan.
If the Odyssey proves to be successful for Honda, the new-generation model should arrive around 2022, according to Best Car Web.
In Australia so far this year, Honda has sold 384 examples of its Odyssey, a 16.7 per cent decrease over the same period in 2019, but still 17.4 per cent of the mainstream people mover market.
Kia’s Carnival, which launched in current-generation form in early 2015, is the market leader with 1212 new registrations year-to-date, accounting for a significant 54.8 per cent slice.
