2011 Honda Odyssey
The new Honda Odyssey minivan has been improved in terms of size, style, power, and fuel economy for the 2011 model year. Although only once inch longer and slightly more than two inches wider than the 2010 edition, the new Honda Odyssey offers better passenger room for the six passengers riding aft of the front two positions. The vehicle is also capable of hauling as much as 148 cubic feet of cargo, making it a practical alternative to a larger SUV.
The 2011 Honda Odyssey retains the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine that was on offer in 2010, but it gains a five horsepower boost (248 horsepower in total) as well as improved torque (250 lb-ft). Fuel economy is up along with the power gain thanks to the inclusion of a variable cylinder management feature, as well as a six-speed automatic transmission that replaces the entry-level five-speed unit on top-of-the-line Touring and Touring Elite models. When ordered with the updated transmission, the Odyssey returns fuel mileage numbers of 19-mpg in the city and 28-mpg on the highway.
