Lightning Bolt Design
You don't need to have kids to appreciate the Odyssey looks. The fact that it's a family vehicle is almost concealed by its low-slung, modern profile, which is both attention-grabbing and aerodynamic. Its rear roofline spoiler with integrated brake light complements the Odyssey's athletic stance.
Standard on Touring models, the 18-inch alloy wheels complement its aggressive styling, and lend the Odyssey a unique, desirable appearance. Power Tailgate and Sliding Doors
EX-L and above models come standard with a power tailgate for ultimate ease of use. Power sliding doors (EX and above) can be easily operated from up to 50 feet away with the remote entry system. And Touring models feature body-colored parking sensors (front and rear), so form and function are seamless.
High-intensity discharge (HID) headlights are standard on the Touring Elite model, and power side mirrors with integrated turn indicators come with both Touring and Touring Elite models. Serious power and exceptional fuel economy. Is this really a people mover?
Power & Efficiency
All models feature a 3.5-liter, 24-valve, SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 engine with 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Its Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) allows for exceptional power and fuel economy while meeting CARB's ULEV-2 emissions rating. A 6-speed automatic transmission (Touring models) helps the Odyssey achieve its impressive fuel economy, while maintaining excellent performance for a van.
Top of the Class
28 mpg  is an extraordinarily high number for an 8-passenger van. To accomplish this high level of efficiency, the engineers needed more than just an efficient engine and transmission. Low-rolling resistance tires, a variable-displacement power-steering pump, and low-drag wheel bearings as well as an aerodynamic body all help keep the gas-station stops few and far between.
The Odyssey comes equipped with sophisticated technology that can help you avoid accidents and help protect occupants with an amazing array of safety features. 5-Star Safety
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) toughened up its crash-safety tests for 2011, and the Odyssey passed with flying colors. In fact, the Odyssey earned 5 stars in each seating position of all three crash-safety tests, as well as earning a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.
Active Safety Features Standard active safety features include the anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), which helps the driver retain steering control when braking hard, and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, which helps to detect and correct oversteer and understeer.
Active front head restraints help reduce the likelihood of whiplash injuries in the event of a rear impact. The head restraints are designed to tilt forward in a fraction of a second to decrease the space between the back of the occupant's head and the head restraint.
To help you avoid accidents in the first place, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses a warning icon that will illuminate within the gauge cluster, notifying the driver that significantly low pressure has been detected in one or more of the tires. Also,the Odyssey features up to five Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) seating positions, making the Odyssey an excellent baby mover.
 19 city/28 highway/22 combined mpg for Touring models. 18 city/27 highway/21 combined mpg for EX-L and below models. Based on 2012 EPA mileage estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.
Peace of Mind
If the unthinkable happens, the Odyssey helps protect its passengers with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which is designed to absorb impacts of vehicles of various sizes in the event of front-end collisions. Front 3-point seat belts with automatic tensioning system, and front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) all help to protect you and your passengers in sufficient impacts.
