Sources have stated that 2025 Honda Odyssey is in the progress of getting serious touch-ups. The minivan has been popular not only for its sleek design, but also for its performance and abilities. It’s just too bad that the styling is getting outdated. It’s a good thing that Honda realizes this, and they have tried their best to do something about it.
The Updated Plan
Honda themselves haven’t said anything about their plans concerning 2025 Honda Odyssey, but they definitely set their plans on motion. After all, Odyssey has gained its own reputation as this reliable family ride, which would be too bad if it’s left behind just because of the outdated appearance or worn capabilities.
Despite Honda’s hush-hush move, the auto world is basically buzzing with speculations and rumors. The auto communities are talking about the company and their plans regarding Odyssey, and we can get a little bit insight into their discussions, opinions, and predictions.
Design and Styles
Honda has committed to deliver modern and sleek designs to their productions, and the Odyssey is one of them. However, they should hear out more from auto enthusiasts concerning their hopes and wishes for the new Odyssey. People want to have a more aerodynamic and streamlined exterior. It doesn’t have to be overly futuristic, but Honda shouldn’t stay with the bland styling.
After all, Honda has been known to include their Solid Wing Face grille (which is considered their signature style) into their models. Hopefully, they will include this into the upcoming Odyssey. It would be much better if they can also include stylish alloy wheels, LED lighting, and also sharper lines with the grille.
The Odyssey has always been applauded for its spacious, plush, and functional cabin. Hopefully, this won’t change either. But many experts and enthusiasts have predicted that the new Odyssey will have even more refined cabin. It won’t be only comfortable and convenient, but it will also be technologically sophisticated. Both passengers and drivers would be pampered with the improved cabin.
Features would be the main focus of the improvement, with possibly bigger display screen, better driver assistance technologies, and more. We can only cross our fingers for better expectation of the ride.
Powertrain and Performance
The V6 unit of 3.5 liter capacity is said to stay, but there are always possibilities that Honda will update it. Not to mention with the fuss of hybrid unit, the V6 isn’t the only option available. Rumor has it that Honda is developing new powertrain and also hybrid power, but we can’t really believe it since the auto maker hasn’t officially confirmed it.
Price and Release Date
It’s predicted that the Odyssey should be available in 2024 and then followed by sales around the mid of the year. For the price, it won’t start below $40,000, but it depends on the powertrain and the changes. If Honda doesn’t use the petrol unit anymore (meaning that they only offer hybrid powertrain), then expect the price tag to increase drastically.
If the petrol unit remains, it means that the base EX will may be offered at $39,000, while the next line, the EX-L would be set at $42,000. The Sport would have a tag of $43,000, while the Touring is at around $46,000. The highest trim, the Elite, would likely come at $51,000. However, if there is no petrol unit and ONLY hybrid system available, expect these prices to increase a few thousands upward. It’s even possible that the Elite would cost at around $55,000 if Honda decides to pack all the good stuff in it, such as ventilated seats, 360 camera, wireless charging pad, hands free tailgate, and more.
Considering that Odyssey will have to compete against Chrysler Pacifica, Kia Carnival, and Toyota Sienna, Honda needs to be super serious about preparing their popular minivan. Hopefully, the upcoming 2025 Honda Odyssey would be as good as everyone expectation.
