What Changed for the 2010 Honda Odyssey:
  • Honda offers a rear-seat DVD entertainment system on the Odyssey EX for the first time, allowing buyers to pair the kid-friendly video screen with cloth seat fabric. Previously, the EX-L trim level, with leather and other upgrades, was a requirement.
  • Michelin PAX run-flat tire system, previously available on Touring model, is discontinued
  • Alabaster Silver, Crystal Black Pearl and Polished Metal Metallic are new colors for 2010
  • This is the current version of the Honda Odyssey's sixth year on the market, which means a redesign is due very soon

This seven- or eight-seat minivan has been in production since 1994, and the current generation was launched in 2005. The 2010 Honda Odyssey is mostly a carryover from the previous model year, and is available in a wide range of trim levels and with many options.

The entry-level LX trim has 16-inch wheels, a four-speaker CD/radio sound system, manual sliding rear doors, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, some power accessories, and a center tray between the first and second rows of seats. The EX and EX-L trims gradually add power features, an upgraded stereo, safety features, and a sunroof. The Touring trim is the fully loaded version. It includes a premium audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation with Bluetooth connectivity, fog lights, and a back-up camera, among other features.

The second row's center seat can be removed to provide additional space for two passengers-or the second row can be removed entirely-and the third-row seats can be folded flat to the floor. Maximum cargo capacity is 147 cu. ft.

All Odysseys are powered by a 244-hp, 3.5-liter V6 engine with front-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission. Optional on the EX-L and Touring trims is Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), a system that deactivates various cylinders based on engine load and driving conditions to increase fuel efficiency. The base engine, according to EPA estimates, delivers 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway and the VCM boosts those numbers to 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes with brake assist, stability and traction control, side airbags for the front seat, and head curtain airbags. The NHTSA gave the Odyssey five stars in front- and side-impact tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Odyssey \"Good\" ratings for frontal-offset and side-impact tests.

Starting MSRP for the 2010 Honda Odyssey was $26,805.

Everyone's got a pretty good sense of what the German manufacturers have planned on the diesel front. After all, it's their strong suit and the core of their business in their home market and throughout Europe. But when it comes to Honda, particularly in the U.S., the picture is more complex. After all, this is the company that has the highest corporate average fuel economy, was the first to introduce a hybrid car in America, and prides itself on its environmental image. The backstory that has been passed along is this: Honda engineers were not eager to introduce a diesel in the European market, though they were told it was key to success there. So they designed what they like to call a "Honda" diesel and introduced it to the market with a psychedelic ad narrated by Garrison Keillor.
