2011 Honda Odyssey Production Starts

Production of the new 2011 Honda Odyssey began in Lincoln, Alabama, on August 31st. The completely re-designed vehicle is expected to arrive at dealerships late in September 2010.

The award-winning Honda Odyssey, the best-selling minivan in the country for the past two years, boasts a new exterior design that is very different from the approach taken by competitors. The 2011 Odyssey exterior gets a "lightning bolt" midline and new body proportions, as well as a lower roof and widened track width, and takes minivan style to a new level.

The interior dimensions mean more leg room, giving the Odyssey the ability to carry more passengers or cargo. Standard and available equipment includes a 12-speaker premium sound system, Honda's satellite-linked, voice-activated navigation system, a widescreen rear entertainment system, hidden storage in a removable first-row center console, heated leather-trimmed front seats, Honda's stowable third-row Magic Seat, 15 beverage holders, and a built in cooler for cooling beverages and snacks while the Odyssey is running.

The Odyssey's much-improved powertrain easily bests the competition, like the Toyota Sienna, especially in terms of fuel efficiency. Thanks to  Honda advances like the three-mode variable cylinder management system and i-VTEC technology, the Odyssey gets much better EPA mileage ratings with its V6, than the Sienna does with its weaker I-4 motor. The new 2011 Honda Odyssey is expected to get 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway, and the best the Sienna can do is 19/24.

The 2011 Odyssey is headed toward Honda dealerships across the county, so check one out today at Honda Marysville - 640 Coleman's Crossing Blvd., Marysville, OH 43040.
