The completely redesigned 2011 Honda Odyssey improves on its already award-winning, class-leading design with a more distinctive style, higher fuel economy and greater interior versatility. The Odyssey has been an established minivan segment leader for more than a decade in terms of packaging innovation, handling, passenger accommodation, safety, quality, long-term value and overall refinement. Improvements to the fourth-generation Odyssey represent a new Honda vision for the "ultimate in family transportation."
The 2011 Odyssey's enhanced aerodynamic shape with a lower roofline contributes to class-leading highway fuel economy, while the improved interior packaging maintains similar vertical functionality as the previous model. A wider stance creates a more accommodating interior while accenting the exterior's dynamic appearance. Significant improvements for convenience include a new "3-mode" second-row seat design that expands laterally, along with a simpler-to-operate, one-motion, 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat®. The "3-mode" second row can better accommodate three passengers with improved comfort for all, and the new "wide mode" supports third-row pass-through access from the side with as many as two child seats in place in the second row. The third row provides improved legroom, along with better sight lines out of the side windows - a functional improvement resulting from the exterior's signature "lightning-bolt" belt line.
