Honda Odyssey Touring Elite with In-Car Vacuum

The 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is making its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) as a new family vehicle.

Refreshed for 2014, the Odyssey Touring Elite provides core safety upgrades, sharpened exterior styling and a revised interior with a host of new features and technologies.

The 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite will also mark the debut of HondaVAC, claimed to be the first-ever in-vehicle vacuum system.

The HondaVAC was developed in conjunction with Shop-Vac, and is composed of a vacuum, replaceable filter and canister bag, with nozzle accessories integrated into a dedicated space on the driver’s side bulkhead of the rear cargo area.

HondaVAC makes quick cleanups a snap no matter the location, offering better cleaning suction and an integrated hose and cleaning attachments that reach into every corner of the Odyssey’s cabin.

The HondaVAC system’s electric motor never needs an outlet or recharging, can operate continuously when the engine is running, and will continue to operate for up to eight minutes when the vehicle is turned off for additional family duties.

The 2014 Odyssey will go on sale at Honda dealerships this summer.

Along with the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite and Honda’s complete lineup of fun-to-drive cars and trucks, the 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid and 2013 Fit EV also will be on display at the Honda booth during NYIAS press and public days. The 2014 Accord Plug-In and the fully-electric Honda Fit EV both recently became available in New York.
