The 2014 Honda Odyssey minivan arrives at Honda dealerships on July 2, refreshed with a host of powertrain, styling, interior, feature and safety upgrades, all designed to meet the needs of today’s family.
Key changes to the 2014 Odyssey minivan include the addition of a standard 6-speed automatic transmission on all trims resulting in better fuel-economy ratings, enhanced safety equipment, cleaner front and rear exterior styling, plus revised instrumentation and electronic controls.[ Also Read: Cars.com Goes with Disney for The Lone Ranger ]
For the first time all 2014 Odyssey models will include standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink connectivity, a 4-way power passenger seat, Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Pandora interface and an SMS text messaging function.
New available features include the Honda exclusive LaneWatch blind spot display, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
Additionally, Odyssey Touring Elite models will now come standard with the HondaVAC, claimed to be the world’s first in-vehicle vacuum cleaner, which allows customers the ability to quickly and easily clean-up dirt and debris from every corner of the minivan.
The 2014 Honda Odyssey will have a starting price of $28,825. This represents only a $150 increase in base price for a thoroughly revised Odyssey equipped with additional standard features for increased convenience, says the company.
