Class-leading achievements include the highest EPA highway fuel efficiency rating for an eight-passenger minivan of 28 mpg for Honda Odyssey Touring. Plus, all Honda Odyssey models achieve the best possible security ratings from both the National Highway Traffic Security Administration (NHTSA) with a 5-star Overall Car Score and the Insurance Institute for Highway Security (IIHS) with a TOP SECURITY PICK, an achievement that no other currently-tested minivan can match.
Developed and built in the US, the five available models consist of the Honda Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite, with every providing a original mix of features, value, luxury and in-vehicle entertainment technology. Changes for 2012 include the addition of select features to the Honda Odyssey EX that were previously exclusive to the Honda Odyssey EX-L. For 2012, the Honda Odyssey EX now contains Bluetooth Handsfreelink, the intelligent Multi-information Screen (i-mid) with an 8-inch TFT display, a 2-GB CD Library and a USB Stereo Interface. The 2012 Honda Odyssey Touring deserves an exclusive look color, White Diamond Pearl, replacing Taffeta White on the prior model.
The Honda Odyssey body uses a tapered cab layout with a signature lightning bolt character line to create a dynamic and distinctive look. Additionally, the look-and-feel cue creates a relatively big third-row window that enhances the outward perspective for third-row passengers. Engineered for a quiet dashboard, the Honda Odyssey's highly-rigid body with 59 percent high-strength metal (an exceptional amount by market standards) helps improve the effectiveness of the vehicle's sound-deadening fabric to isolate road noise. The high-strength metal also helps to reduce body weight for better fuel efficiency and optimize body rigidity for agile handling.
