Updates to the 2021 Honda Odyssey range have been announced to keep it competitive against the new Kia Carnival.
For 2021 the Odyssey line up will use a new model naming convention already in use for the CR-V. Two new grades, the Vi L7 and Vi LX7 will replace the outgoing VTi and VTi-L grades.
Pricing starts from $44,250 plus on-road costs for the Vi L7 grade and $51,150 plus on-roads for the Vi LX7.
Both variants offer seven seats with second-row captain’s chairs with adjustable armrests, recline functionality and ISOFIX points.
Also included are leather seat trim, one-touch power sliding rear doors (driver and passenger side), keyless entry with push-button start, LED headlights, and an 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Honda Sensing Suite of safety tech is also standard and brings autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and rear cross-traffic alert.
Externally, the updated Odyssey is distinguished by a new front grille, tweaked bumpers, redesigned bonnet and fresh alloy wheels.
Both grades are powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing 129kW of power and 225Nm of torque. It’s matched to a CVT automatic.
