2020 Hampton Roads International Auto Show
STATUS: Transmission upgrade for 2020 - The current Odyssey that arrived for the 2018 model year doesn't appear much different from the previous minivan, but Honda's designers did eliminate the visually distracting sliding-door tracks that made the rear section look misaligned. Numerous interior touches also set the new Odyssey apart from past models. Chief among them is the second row "Magic Slide" seat that can be converted to captain's chairs by removing the bench's mid-section. The remaining portions can be left separate or pushed together to form a two-person bench. Other handy items include the "CabinTalk" public-address system that lets front-seat passengers communicate to riders in back (but not vice-versa). The CabinWatch infrared camera also monitors the activities of second- and third-row occupants through the touch-screen. The standard V-6 engine generates 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. For 2020, all models come with the 10-speed automatic transmission. Previously, a nine-speed automatic was used in lower trims.
