Honda has improved its Odyssey, revealing a more stylish, spacious and powerful fourth generation model of its people mover.

The 2009 Odyssey features a more powerful engine (132 kW), improved safety, visibility, versatility and fuel economy (8.9 1/100km), along with all the aspects of the previous model.

The fourth generation Honda Odyssey is superior to the third generation.

The Odyssey has a 2.4 L DOHC i-VTEC engine coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control and Shift Hold. With tilt and telescopic steering and double wishbone suspension, its driveability and handling are more car-like than previous models.

The 2009 Odyssey also features six airbags and, for the first time, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).

As with every Honda, passenger safety is an important consideration and the all new Odyssey is fitted with 3-point seatbelts in all seven positions and active front seat head restraints.

Featuring slim-line A pillars, the 2009 Honda Odyssey provides the driver with a panoramic front view and improved overall visibility.

Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering (MAE) is also standard across the range.

Inside, the Odyssey sets a new standard in styling and comfort with the unique V shape seating layout providing all passengers with a clear view forward.

Comfort in the second row has been improved with the belt anchor built into the pillar, 20 mm greater head clearance and a 25 mm increase in the width of the centre armrest. The centre seat now gains a three-point seatbelt.

The enhancements continue in the third row with more foot and leg room.

Contributing to its car-like appeal, the all new Odyssey retains its low centre of gravity with a reduction in overall height from 1,550 mm to 1,545 mm.

Advanced styling makes the fourth generation model more sporty.

Confirming its global commitment to the environment, Honda has ensured that all materials used to manufacture the all new Odyssey have been selected for their recyclability and environmental compatibility.

With superb driving enjoyment, advanced styling, comfort and comprehensive safety features, the 2009 Honda Odyssey is Honda's new family car.
