2024 Honda Odyssey: One of the Best Future Minivans

The upcoming 2024 Honda Odyssey is said to come with improved performance and also improved appearance. The Odyssey doesn’t need a lot of touchups because the minivan has been considered one of the best in its sectors. But Honda believes that the Odyssey is due for mild refreshment so they will include some updates to the line.

The Redesigned Plan

According to plans, the entry-level Odyssey will get a new trim, while there would be a fresh Sport mid-range model. All else will be the same. Like the previous model, the new Odyssey would come with a comfy and plush cabin, along with a refined, well-built, and spacious interior. Moreover, the Odyssey gets a 5-star score from NHTSA, so you can rest assured about the safety features and the driving quality.

The new Sport model would get fresh exterior updates, which would be finished in glossy black, covering the rear pillars, B-pillars, taillight trim, light surround, side mirror housings, and the grille. The wheels would also come in black. When compared to other lines, the Sport is unique. You can say that it’s one of a kind, with various offered colors like Gray Sonic Pearl, Red Radiant Metallic, Black Crystal Pearl, and White Platinum Pearl.

The Interior Cabin

Aside from the exterior changes, expect improvement on the interior cabin too. The minivan has been known to have spacious rooms that can accommodate eight people within its three-row seats arrangement. Will Honda make some changes to the layout? We can’t tell because Honda hasn’t said anything about it. Expect improved features and technologies. The 8.0-inch touchscreen display is said to be replaced by a new bigger screen with 10.1 inches. You should also expect new features, such as satellite radio, two USB ports, seven speakers, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. Driver assistant technologies should be expected, too, including pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, auto emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitor. More features should be surprising, either.

Is There a 2024 Honda Odyssey AWD?

The powertrain of the 2024 Honda Odyssey may likely be a carryover. It means it would be running on a V6 unit with a 3.5-liter capacity, and it’s not using a turbo. The powertrain can generate 280 hp and 262 Nm of torque. The problem with the new Odyssey is that the possibility of an all-wheel driving system is slim, as Honda only offers a front-wheel driving system. So, there is no AWD for the 2024 model Odyssey.

The front-wheel driving system would also come with an auto 10-speed transmission that is considered adequate and punchy. There would be cylinder deactivation, along with fuel efficiency features. This feature is believed to have a similar function as the stop/start button. Please don’t underestimate the design and style of the minivan, as it has the towing ability. The maximum capacity is around 3,500 pounds.

2024 Honda Odyssey Release Date and Price

It’s predicted that the new Odyssey would likely start from $37,500 for the base trim. Compared to the previous model, the new Odyssey would get an increase of $3,000. The new Sport 2023 model costs around $41,200, while the Elite is slightly less than $50,000.

The strongest rival to the Odyssey would be Chrysler Pacifica and Toyota Sienna, which have a price range of around $30,000. Kia Carnival is also one of the rivals with $33,000. Chrysler Pacifica (plug-in hybrid) has a similar price range to Elite. We should wait for explicit confirmation and official confirmation of the 2024 Honda Odyssey, so stay tuned!
