2017 Honda Odyssey Redesign, Mpg, Release Date

 

There is a new release coming from Honda. Actually, there are a lot of them. It seems that these next two years will be busy for this Japanese car manufacturer since they announced they will release several models in upcoming years. But the car we are talking about here is 2017 Honda Odyssey. It is a popular minivan that is now redesigned, refreshed and ready to hit the road. This will be the fifth generation of this car and for now there is not too much detail known about it. A test mule was recently seen on the streets and from we could see there it has some resemblance to 2016 Acura MDX.

This test mule was covered so we could not see everything, but from we know this car will definitely be a mix of good design, great dynamics and nicely shaped spacious interior. There are a lot of rumors that this car will come featuring All-wheel-drive. This is most likely going to be the case since some managers from Honda confirmed that are giving serious thoughts to this. Given the fact that are a lot of competitors on this market, and that for now there is only one minivan available on US market that offers AWD, this may be Honda’s secret weapon to stick out on the crowded market.
