NEW Honda Odyssey grows in size, price and features, but shaves fuel consumption.

Honda has announced pricing and new details for the new fifth-generation Honda Odyssey people mover, ahead of its arrival in Australian showrooms next week.

The 2014 Odyssey will once again be available in two trim levels, with the previous Odyssey and Odyssey Luxury replaced by the VTi and VTi-L, and the price of entry has risen from $35,100 to $38,990.

The top-end pricing has also shifted upwards, with the $47,620 VTi-L sitting $4,700 higher than the old $42,920 Odyssey Luxury.

Helping justify the price rise is an all-new body that’s grown by 30mm in length, 70mm added to the wheelbase, and a significant 150mm in height with the return of a traditional van profile after the more wagon-profiled third and fourth-generation models.

The bigger body has helped Honda to package a three-position rear seat for the first time, bringing the VTi’s seat count to eight, while the seven-seat VTi-L comes with twin captain’s chairs for the second-row.

Both versions will once again be powered by a 2.4-litre petrol four-cylinder engine, but move to the redesigned Earth Dreams Technology unit already found in the non-Euro Accord. The 129kW/225Nm unit loses 3kW and gains 7Nm over the previous Odyssey, and a CVT auto replaces the previous five-speed torque converter unit.

The new transmission and the addition of standard stop/start has helped to shave fuel consumption from the previous models’ 8.9L/100km combined figure to a new combined figure of 7.6L/100km for the VTi and 7.8L/100km for the VTi-L – both using 91RON regular unleaded.

The new Odyssey also sees a shift from the previous model’s independent double wishbone suspension front and rear to cheaper and lighter MacPherson struts at the front and a torsion beam at the rear.

A 1000kg unbraked tow rating is carried over from the previous Odyssey, along with a spacesaver spare wheel.

The eight-seat Odyssey VTi comes with a leather steering wheel, 7-inch MID touchscreen with satnav capability for suitable iPhone users, Bluetooth phone and audio, cruise control, reversing camera, conversation mirror, passenger side power sliding door, front and rear climate control with rear controls, auto headlights with LED daytime running lights and 17-inch alloys.

The seven-seat Odyssey VTi-L can be identified by its black-detailed 17-inch alloys, unique grille and sideskirts, and scores leather trim, power front seats with seat heaters, an electric sunroof, a 360 degree camera display with an auto-parking function and cross-traffic alerts, dual power sliding doors, tri-zone climate control with third row floor vents, retractable sunshades for the second row, LED headlights with active cornering beams, front foglights, auto-dimming rear view mirror and proximity keys.

Both models come with dual front and side airbags, full-length curtain airbags, ABS, stability and traction control, and a tyre pressure monitoring system, while the VTi-L adds a blind-spot monitoring system.
