Previous - Next

Welcome to the fourth-generation Odyssey with more power, more space, more safety and more driver-focus.

The Odyssey doesn’t look or feel like a people-mover. Complimenting its sporty persona, it offers a comfortable drive and sure-footed handling, a luxurious interior with enough space to accommodate seven people and is perfect for the family lifestyle.

The Honda Odyssey is one of Australia’s most awarded vehicles winning the prestigious Wheels ‘Car of the Year’ with the first generation model in 1995. Australia’s Best Car Awards have named the current Odyssey ‘Best People Mover’ four years in a row – a first for any vehicle in the award’s history.


  • More powerful engine (132kW) and improved fuel economy
  • 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control and Shift Hold
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Motion Adaptive EPS
  • Front, side and full length curtain airbags
  • 3-point seatbelts for all positions (7 in total)
  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure
  • 4 wheel disc brakes with four channel ABS, EBA and BA
  • Tilt and telescopic steering wheel
  • Alloy wheels
  • Double wishbone suspension

Honda has been introducing Vehicle Stability Assist across the entire range and the all-new Odyssey is the next vehicle in the line-up to receive this important safety feature.

Combined with VSA, the all-new Odyssey has Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering that detects instability in slippery conditions during cornering and braking and automatically initiates steering inputs aimed at assisting the driver to steer in the correct direction.

It also features active head restraints, 3 point seatbelts in all seven seating positions and front, side and curtain airbags as standard.

The all-new Honda Odyssey will be on sale soon.
