Kuala Lumpur, 14 November 2013 – Two weeks after it was released in Japan, the 5th Generation Odyssey is on Malaysia shores! This premium upper Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV) caters to the Malaysian market demands with its distinctive and striking design, outstanding performance, superior space and comfort, excellent fuel-efficiency, as well as advanced safety and security features. The Odyssey was first introduced to the world in 1994 and in Malaysia in 2002.
Speaking at the launch event at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2013, Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Yoichiro Ueno, said, “Staying true to our promise to bring Joy to our customers, the All-New Odyssey will be able to provide a complete package to the upper MPV market. Building on its original design concept, the All-New Odyssey offers an unprecedented level of premium quality; combining roomy and refined comfort for occupants in all 3 rows with an exceptional smooth ride.”
The All-New Odyssey is powered by the newly developed 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC (175PS and 225NM) Earth Dreams Technology engine and Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT). The All-New Odyssey gives dynamic acceleration at start, top in class fuel economy and exceptionally clean emission for driving through city roads and on highways. This powertrain offers even better output, torque and fuel efficiency than the engine of the previous model. Further encouraging economical fuel consumption driving, the ECON mode and coaching function are now part of the features present in the All-New Odyssey. The ECON mode ensures fuel-efficient driving with cooperative control while the coaching functions changes colour from white to green indicating economical driving.
Exterior looks of the All-New Odyssey combines power with refinement. The large opening of the front grille hints at its high performance, while the grille shape with chrome-like finish makes a commanding appearance. The solid streamlined presence of the All-New Odyssey gives it an advanced silhouette and emotional appeal.
The All-New Odyssey features a newly developed “Ultra-Low Floor Platform”, which creates a spacious cabin equivalent to large-class MPV. The ceiling is higher and the floor is lower and hence, the interior space is much roomier thanks to this platform. With the low centre of gravity and enhanced suspension, this new platform also delivers exhilarating and stable handling while giving a smooth ride. Occupants are greeted by a stylish and classy interior as they step in via the power sliding doors.
The Smart Entry with Push Start Button makes entering the All-New Odyssey EXV a breeze and starts the engine with just one push of the ignition button. Driving and maneuvering the All-New Odyssey is extremely easy in relation to its generous body size. Turning radius is increased and the turn circle is at 5.4m. The pillars are adjusted, giving this premium MPV a slender impression, maximised glass surface and enhanced visibility.
Offering Honda’s first Premium Captain Cradle Seats with Ottoman and Honda’s first 3-step reclining type seats in its second row, occupants in the All-New Odyssey can enjoy modern comfort akin to a luxury hotel suite. There is also extra foot room for the second row occupants courtesy of its flat rear floor. Providing heightened luxurious comfort to both driver and passengers, the All-New Odyssey EXV is equipped with leather seats.
A rear climate control switch is located at a position where operation from second and third row seats is made easy. All the seats in the All-New Odyssey are designed for full comfort for all 7 occupants to enjoy the interior roominess of the premium MPV.
Trunk space is another feature that stands out in the All-New Odyssey. The enhanced space makes it possible to fit suitcases without any compromise in comfort for all seven passengers. The flexible seat configuration further optimises capacity; the magical storage mechanism of the third row increases trunk space with just a pull of the lever. Getting in and out of the All-New Odyssey is made very easy by the low floor and rear door steps.
Supporting a comfortable drive with the intuitive operation panel and the latest interface, the All-New Odyssey comes with electrostatic touch type display audio, which can be cooperated with a smart phone. The users can operate the smartphone by the audio display, or even transmit pictures or music data from their smartphone to the audio display, and play their favourite music through the MPV’s speakers.
The All-New Odyssey comes with advanced safety features to offer the driver, peace of mind. Its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure meets both self-protection and damage reduction to other drivers. The All-New Odyssey is equipped with 6- Airbags that consist of Dual Front i-SRS Airbags and i-SRS Side Airbags in the first row and Side Curtain Airbags up until the third row seats. This upper MPV prioritises safety for everyone with G-Force Control (G-CON).
The All-New Odyssey EXV also offers another Honda’s first in safety while driving - Blind Spot Information with Cross Traffic Monitor (CTA). The Blind Spot Information alerts the driver with a beeping sound should he/she not be aware of a vehicle that is in the blind spot when he/she wants to turn. The CTA gives off a warning whistle when a collision with a cross-approaching vehicle is predicted while backing up the MPV.
The high grade variant also comes with multi view camera system that displays multiple wide angles which provides assistance on narrow roads and intersection with limited visibility for further awareness of surrounding and even safer drive. Parking the All-New Odyssey EXV is also a breeze with the Smart Parking Assist System which automatically detects the parking limiting line and guides the All-New Odyssey into the parking spot.
The All-New Odyssey is offered in two variants, the high grade EXV and the standard grade EX. The All-New Odyssey is available in 4 colours of White Orchid Pearl, Super Platinum Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl and the Glamorous Mauve Pearl.
Backed by the Honda brand, and wide network of 70 Honda dealerships nationwide, the All- New Odyssey comes with a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage and a service interval of 10,000 km to provide the best ownership experience. In addition, the All-New Odyssey owners are entitled to six times free labour services alternating with paid services.
The All-New Odyssey provides a complete package of premium quality to offer an unrivalled choice for Malaysians who look for safety, luxury and spaciousness in a MPV.
