Jazz’s solitary change is the introduction of alloy rims for the entry-level VTi model’s 15-inch wheels, replacing the steel versions previously fitted. Pricing remains at a starting point of $14,990 for a manual-gearbox VTi.
There are more cosmetic enhancements for the Odyssey, which is second to the Kia Carnival in overall, sub-$60,000 people-mover sales but the most popular with private buyers.
The higher-spec VTi-L variant receives a revised front end featuring darkened headlight housings, a black lower grille section, and a dark chrome upper grille.
Privacy glass is also installed for the second and third row windows, as well as the tailgate window.
Inside, the base VTi and VTi-L both gain Isofix child-seat anchorage points for the second-row captain’s chairs, plus new split-pocket storage on the back of the front seats.
A minor change in the body colour range sees Carnelian Red pearlescent paint replaced by Premium Spice Purple pearlescent.
The VTi continues to start at $37,610; the VTi-L’s price increases by $450 to $46,490.
The MY17 Honda Odyssey and Honda Jazz models are available now in showrooms.
