In the world of minivans, the Honda Odyssey stands out
as a performance vehicle with the uncompromising sensibility
and versatility that a van offers. Not only is it sophisticated,
stylish, and contemporary, it sports class-leading levels
of safety and luxury throughout. The Odyssey has been the
recipient of a myriad of top industry awards for best-in-class.
The Honda Odyssey Minivan is available in two
models - the Odyssey base model and the Odyssey EX. In addition
to the impressive host of comforts, conveniences, and other
features available in the entry-level Odyssey, the Odyssey
EX makes a series of upgrades.
Each Honda Odyssey Minivan is equipped with standard
fare such as a revised column gear shifter for greater ease
of use, a new steering wheel with increased comfort and
a slightly thicker design, and revised horn controls with
extended sensor pad positioning. The front seats now offer
more deeply bolstered support, and new fabric patterns are
used on all models.
In addition to the array of storage compartments and pockets,
the Odyssey is built with second row grab rails mounted
near the side of the roof with built-in hooks for hangers.
Large cup holders line the sides of the second row seats.
These second row seats slide together bench-style, and the
cargo space behind the third row seats has been enhanced
with eight bag hooks behind the seat cushion and a hammock-style
Odyssey EX model offers available genuine leather upholstery
and interior trim, with electronically heated front seats.
Also available as an option is a Honda DVD entertainment
system with factory-installed integrated DVD system that
includes an all-new crystal clear seven-inch LCD display
that flips down from the ceiling at the push of a button.
The DVD plays CD's, radio, cassette tapes, DVD, and allows
for auxiliary inputs for video games, VCR's, and cameras.
Rich new colors are offered this year to keep
the look updated - Redrock Pearl, Evergreen Pearl, and Havasu
Blue Pearl. The exterior styling has been freshened up with
front-end features such as a more aggressive new grille
with two horizontal slats and a more prominent H-mark.
As well, the Odyssey wears newly-designed sixteen-inch
multi-spoke wheels, with optional aluminum alloy wheels
(standard on the Odyssey EX). The tail lights have also
been revamped to headline amber-colored turn signals for
an updated appearance and improved visibility.
The Honda Odyssey Minivan is equipped with a
3.5-litre, SOHC, six-cylinder VTEC engine that pumps out
an impressive 240 horsepower and 242 lb-ft of torque. New
for 2002 is the standard five-speed automatic transmission,
featuring smooth and quick gear changes with wider rations
for increased fuel economy and a sportier drive.
Safety and Security
Every Honda Odyssey Minivan boasts safety features
that range from standard side impact air bags to new driver
depowered air bag, and a passenger depowered air bag with
cut-off switch. The Odyssey is also equipped with four-wheel
disc brakes with ABS, three-point seatbelts at outboard
passengers' positions, child safety locks in the rear seating
area, and child seat tethers and anchors. The vehicle is
designed with crumple zones and side impact door beams.
