2017 Honda Odyssey and Jazz gain updates

By Jez Spinks, 15 Feb 2017 Car News

2017 Honda Jazz

Minor updates in store for popular Honda models for 2017.

The Honda Odyssey people-mover and Honda Jazz city car have both been given a mild update for 2017.

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.
