The Car

23 Feb 2001

Odyssey's all-aluminium V6 is also used in the Accord model The engine has been modified to produce 154kW at 5800rpm Maximum torque of 270Nm is developed at a high 5000rpm - although substantial torque is still available at engine speeds as low as 2000rpm The Odyssey's independent, double wishbone suspension is adapted from the Accord model and has been modified in latest model to reduce cornering lean, brake dive and rear-end squat The new Odyssey is torsionally 26 per cent stiffer than the previous model, while bending rigidity has improved by 84 per centFour hinged doors give easier access to the interior than multi-passenger vehicles with sliding rear doors The three rows of seats are arranged cinema-style so rear passengers have good forward vision Rearmost seats fold backwards into a special under-floor compartment to give a flat, unimpeded loading area. The spare tyre is now located under the floor Dual front airbags are standard in both Odyssey models Five-speed automatic transmission with sequential shifting and "grade logic" control is standard in the V6 Odyssey The seating arrangement in the V6 Odyssey provides a full "walk-through" interior The gear selector is now located on a small semi-console protruding from the lower dashboard 6.5JJx 16 alloy wheels are standard 65-litre fuel tank is located ahead of the rear suspension for improved weight distribution and rear impact protection Four-wheel disc, three-channel anti-lock braking system also has electronic brake force distribution that distributes braking pressure to maximise tyre grip Foot-operated parking brake is located under the dash to allow easy movement between two front seats Row roof height makes for easier loading of roof racks Seats are mounted approximately hip-height to allow easy entry and exit, with no need to "climb" up into the vehicle Drag coefficient of 0.33 is equal to many sedan cars
