The Honda Odyssey Hybrid
In the recent years, there has been much talk about the need to conserve the environment. In view of all this talk, quite a number of motor companies have committed to the designing and manufacturing of automobiles that promise better fuel efficiency.
Honda, a Japanese car maker, has been getting a lot of plaudits over the years for its fuel efficient automobiles. The 2016 Honda Odyssey Hybrid is currently only available in Japan but we believe it is one of the cars that Honda will introduce onto the global market in line with their commitment to fuel efficient vehicles.
One of the major priorities in the manufacturing of this model will be, having a system of improved fuel and engine economy. The main competition for this Honda model will be provided by the Toyota Sienna, Nissan Quest and the Kia Sedona.
Exterior and interior design
There is six trim levels for the Honda Odyssey Hybrid, and they feature among them; EX, EX-L, LX, SE, Touring Elite and Touring. The exterior appearance of this minivan will consist of a taller body as well as larger 17-inch wheels. In addition to this, there will be an aggressive larger chrome grille; it will also be fitted with heated mirrors, attractive automatic LED headlights and power-sliding doors. The rear of this car will have a rear spoiler for aesthetic improvement.
The interior of this vehicle has three rows of seats, making it possible for the vehicle to carry up to eight people. The car is fitted with a navigation system, rear seat entertainment system and cruise control. Honda are even planning an integrated vacuum cleaner. When this minivan is released on the global market it is expected to have active noise cancellation and of more importance lane-departure warning systems.
The engine to be fitted under the hood of the Honda Odyssey Hybrid will look to achieve maximum speed and maximum efficiency. The buyer can expect the minivan to have a 3.5 liter, V6 engine that produces around 248 HP of force and generates an approximate 250 pounds of torque. The engine will be linked to a six-speed automatic transmission system and will be a front-wheel drive. The engine will allow acceleration from 0 mph to 60 miles per hour in less than nine seconds.
The standard Odyssey Minivan will cover 19 miles per gallon of fuel on city roads and an estimated 28 miles on highways for every gallon of fuel. This gives a combined EPA estimate of 22 miles per gallon. Experts estimate that the hybrid version of this car will offer 62mpg.
Expect this model to have more space and more comfortable seats that will help prevent back pain for all occupants of the vehicle. The tail lights of this model will be divided. Safety and security measures such as parking assist and side cameras will also be introduced.
