After five years, Honda’s all-new Odyssey people mover provided more space, performance, refinement and economy, although it never strayed far from the 1995 original’s homely looks.
During its four-year tenure nothing touched the Honda as a complete seven-seat package.
The model also ushered in a fabulous 154kW/270Nm 3.0 V6-engined V6L variant (mated to a slick five-speed auto gearbox), which added a more luxurious six-seater bucket chair-feel to an impressively engineered vehicle.
This is one case where the manufacturer's claims of car-like comfort are not to be dismissed as pure hype.
Meanwhile a four-speed automatic, 110kW/206Nm 2.3-litre VTEC base Odyssey provided for the majority of Odyssey buyers.
The V6 was split into two models from early ’03.
