An MP-3 compatible entertainment system with an AM/FM radio, CD player, USB and HDMI inputs, Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming, voice control, and six speakers, controllable from a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Speed sensitive volume, which rises as cabin noise intrusion rises.
Climate control air-conditioning with at least two zones (the driver and front passenger can set temperatures independently), and vents in the ceiling for passengers in the rear two seat rows.
Height and reach adjustment for a leather-wrapped steering wheel, from which you can operate the cruise control, the audio system and your phone (via Bluetooth). Height adjustment for the driver’s seat.
A reversing camera with normal, wide, and top-down views.
Headlights that switch on automatically when it’s dark, fog lights, and tail-lights and daytime running lights illuminated by long-lasting LEDs.
Power-folding and heated exterior mirrors.
Seating for at least seven people (the less costly Odyssey, the VTi, seats eight). Front and rear 12-volt power outlets.
A power-operated rear door, on the passenger side, which slides to open like the doors on many commercial vans. Third-row seats that fold away into an underfloor recess, releasing a flat luggage area.
Seventeen-inch alloy wheels (which look nicer than steel wheels and don’t need plastic trim), and a space-saver spare wheel. A tyre-pressure monitor, which could give you extra time to get a slow-puncture seen to.
Automatic transmission, with paddle shifters.
Hill-start assist, which helps you start on an uphill slope by controlling the brakes automatically.
Six airbags. Electronic stability control, which is mandatory on new cars and can help you recover from a skid. (For the placement of airbags, and more on Odyssey safety features, please open the Safety section below.)
Every Odyssey is warrantied for five years and unlimited distance, and for six years against rust perforating the body.
