2011 Honda Odyssey

The completely redesigned 2011 Honda Odyssey improves on its already award-winning, class-leading design with a more distinctive style, higher fuel economy and greater interior versatility. The Odyssey has been an established minivan segment leader for more than a decade in terms of packaging innovation, handling, passenger accommodation, safety, quality, long-term value and overall refinement. Improvements to the fourth-generation Odyssey represent a new Honda vision for the “ultimate in family transportation.”

The 2011 Odyssey’s enhanced aerodynamic shape with a lower roofline contributes to class-leading highway fuel economy, while the improved interior packaging maintains similar vertical functionality as the previous model. A wider stance creates a more accommodating interior while accenting the exterior’s dynamic appearance. Significant improvements for convenience include a new “3-mode” second-row seat design that expands laterally, along with a simpler-to-operate, one-motion, 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat®. The “3-mode” second row can better accommodate three passengers with improved comfort for all, and the new “wide mode” supports third-row pass-through access from the side with as many as two child seats in place in the second row. The third row provides improved legroom, along with better sight lines out of the side windows – a functional improvement resulting from the exterior’s signature “lightning-bolt” belt line.

Across all available models – the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and now, Touring Elite – more than 50 new standard and available features have been added for 2011 to enhance comfort, convenience, efficiency and travel fun. The Odyssey Touring Elite model debuts as the most-luxurious Honda minivan ever.

The 2011 Odyssey is truly an American-made2 vehicle, designed, engineered and assembled in the United States, and it represents the vast and ever-growing capabilities of Honda in North America. Virtually every aspect of the 2011 Odyssey has been envisioned, developed, tested and finalized by Honda associates throughout California, Ohio and Alabama. Made by Odyssey owners for Odyssey owners, many of its engineers and designers are also long-time Odyssey drivers themselves, bringing real-world family experience into the design of the vehicle. Thoughtful features like the front bag hook, available cool box, available flip-up trash bag ring and more were inspired by the R&D team’s first-hand experience with the vehicle. Popular features like the available back-up camera and available conversation mirror continue to be offered.

Powering the Odyssey is a robust, yet efficient 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM). To conserve fuel when power requirements are low, the VCM technology can allow the engine to operate using only three or four of its six cylinders as conditions permit. A six-speed automatic transmission, standard on the Odyssey Touring, helps it achieve a best-in-class city/highway EPA fuel-economy rating1 of 19/28 mpg (+2/+3 compared to 2010 Odyssey Touring). A five-speed automatic transmission is standard on the Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L, which has a city/highway fuel economy rating of 18/27 mpg (+2/+4 compared to 2010 Odyssey LX, EX). VCM uses both an audio system-based Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) system and a chassis-based Active Control Engine Mount (ACM) system to cancel noise and vibration that can occur during cylinder deactivation.

The 2011 Odyssey becomes lower and wider on the outside, resulting in a more spacious and functional interior compared to the 2010 Odyssey. The 2011 Odyssey’s overall exterior length of 202.9 inches is 0.8 inches longer, the width of 79.2 inches is 2.1 inches wider and the height of 68.4 inches is 0.4 inches shorter (not including the previous model’s roof rails, which become a dealer-installed accessory for 2011). The 2011 Odyssey’s passenger volume of 172.6 cubic feet (LX) increases by 1.2 cubic feet compared to the 2010 model (LX). Weight-saving measures result in a curb-weight reduction between 50 pounds (Odyssey LX) to 103 pounds (Odyssey Touring) compared to the 2010 models. The reduction in curb weight is a significant accomplishment for a vehicle that is wider, more rigid, better equipped and more functional overall.

An advanced 3.5-liter, 24-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC V-6 gasoline engine provides the 2011 Odyssey with a combination of satisfying acceleration performance, excellent fuel economy and ultra-low emissions. The all-aluminum engine features a dual-stage intake manifold for low- and mid-rpm performance. The engine generates 248 hp and 250 lb-ft. of torque, while still achieving a class-leading highway EPA fuel economy rating of 28 miles per gallon (Odyssey Touring). The engine’s Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) feature allows the engine to make responsive power while maintaining high levels of fuel efficiency. VCM works on the principle that a vehicle only requires a fraction of its power output at cruising speeds and allows the engine to effectively run on three, four or six cylinders, based on the power requirement. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard on the Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on the Odyssey Touring.

Compared to the five-speed automatic transmission, the six-speed automatic transmission has lower gear ratios in first through fifth gears to enhance acceleration, and the sixth gear ratio is taller to enhance fuel economy. The class-leading EPA-estimated highway fuel economy for the V-6-powered Odyssey Touring is better than similarly sized 4-cylinder-powered minivans currently available from other manufacturers for the 2011 model year. The 2011 Odyssey meets the Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standard in California and states that adhere to California Air Resource Board (CARB) certification standards.

Exterior Styling

The 2011 Odyssey dramatically departs from conventional minivan styling with its low and wide stance, highlighted by a “lightning-bolt” belt line that further distinguishes the vehicle’s profile. Compared to the previous generation, the 2011 Odyssey’s slightly lower roofline and wider stance contributes to a sleeker, stronger and more dynamic presence with improved aerodynamics. Steeply raked front and rear roof pillars, a unique side-glass profile, a chamfered roof line and a tapered rear cabin shape combine to create a dynamic and distinctive appearance from every perspective. The lightning-bolt belt line dives toward the front of the vehicle, setting the Odyssey apart from the monotony of other minivan’s traditionally straight belt line. The lightning bolt further emphasizes the 2011 Odyssey’s sporty appearance while enhancing outward visibility for third-row passengers. Aggressive body-to-wheel proportions reduce the perception of vertical height common to most minivan designs. Fender flares further accent the vehicle’s securely planted and stylish persona. The availability of projector beam HID headlights and form-fit fog lights further contributes to a sophisticated and upscale appearance on applicable models.

Body Construction

The Odyssey’s extensively redesigned platform becomes more lightweight and rigid for 2011, allowing for the vehicle’s high levels of safety, increased fuel economy, refined handling and a comfortable ride. The 2011 Odyssey contains 59 percent high-strength steel content by weight (between 340 MPa and 1500 MPa), the most of any Honda to date and a significant increase from 35 percent on the previous model. The extensive use of high-strength steel contributes to lower vehicle curb weight and a stronger body. Compared to the previous generation, the 2011 Odyssey improves front lateral stiffness by 6 percent and rear vertical stiffness by 22 percent. Aerodynamically, the Odyssey is more efficient with a 5.5-percent reduction in Cd (aerodynamic drag) compared to the previous model.


A long 118.1-inch wheelbase, wide front and rear track dimensions, advanced suspension design and features such as VSA with traction control contribute to the Odyssey’s excellent overall handling. Specially tuned independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension provide a surprisingly nimble and rewarding driving experience, which also provides dynamic safety for which all Honda vehicles are known. The Odyssey’s 4-wheel disc brake system incorporates larger-diameter rotors. As before, the system incorporates ABS, Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) as standard equipment. EBD automatically optimizes braking force between the front and rear wheels depending on passenger and cargo load, reducing the distance it takes the Odyssey to stop as compared to a vehicle without EBD. Brake Assist senses emergency stopping and applies all available boost to help stop sooner. ABS is designed to assist the driver retain steering control during heavy braking. The Odyssey’s hydraulic power-steering pump uses a variable-displacement design that reduces the constant load on the engine. When the vehicle is maneuvering at slower speeds, like when parking, the power steering automatically increases the power assist so less effort is needed to turn the wheel. At highway speeds, it automatically reduces the power assist so that the driver has more feedback, all while exerting less drag on the engine for improved fuel economy. Standard on the Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L are 17-inch wheels, while 18-inch wheels are standard on the Odyssey Touring. The tires on all models feature low-rolling resistance construction to aid in maximizing fuel economy.

Interior Styling Concept

The interior of the 2011 Odyssey embraces a “cool and intuitive” theme consistent with its increased levels of technology and family versatility. The dashboard’s simple and clean lines accent the depth of the cabin for an open and spacious feeling. A key exterior design element, the lightning-bolt belt line, improves the interior sight lines from the third row. Upscale materials available on certain models consist of metallic-look trim, glossy black panels and luxuriously grained soft surfaces.

Interior color choices are beige, gray and truffle (dark gray). The Odyssey exemplifies quality from its ergonomically friendly controls and sensible human factors, such as the positioning of grab handles, bins and pockets; intuitive switches and controls; and the feel of textiles and soft-touch textured surfaces.

Interior Versatility and Functionality

To fulfill its mission as the ultimate family vehicle, the 2011 Odyssey interior focuses on providing three rows of comfortable, adult-friendly seating together with a large interior volume and plentiful storage capabilities. Overall, the interior has been widened as more convenience and functionality features have been added to all three rows. Nine fundamental seating configurations (EX and above) can accommodate between one and eight passengers (seven on LX) simply by adding, folding or removing the modular seating elements. Innovations can be found throughout the cabin, including such features as a new second-row “3-mode” seating configuration and a third row that is more comfortable for adults.

Engineered for a quiet interior, improvements to body rigidity help to enhance the effectiveness of the vehicle’s sound-deadening material to better isolate road noise. The end result is a quieter cabin at highway cruising speeds with less background noise, which helps make conversations from the front of the cabin to the rear of the cabin more audible.

As before, a 4×8 sheet of plywood can fit inside the Odyssey’s cargo bay with the second row seats removed, and 10-foot-long 2×4 studs can fit inside the vehicle with the available front console removed. Numerous storage bins for every passenger are included, starting with generously sized door bins and a thoughtful storage area for purses or other similar-sized items in the available center console. Meanwhile, the lid of the front row center console (EX and above) is sized to accept four-cup beverage holders from take-out restaurants. A convenient flip-up trash bag ring extends from behind the center console and can secure a small disposable bag, giving passengers a convenient way to keep the inside of the vehicle clean. The Odyssey provides up to 15 beverage holders depending on the model, seating and console configurations (10 on Odyssey LX). The Odyssey offers a generous 38.4 cubic feet of storage behind the third-row seat, 93.1 cubic feet of storage behind the second row, and 148.5 cubic feet of storage behind the front seats – slightly more than the previous model (+1.1 cubic feet).

First Row
Like all Honda vehicles, the Odyssey’s seating, instruments and controls are designed around the driver. To help enhance driver comfort, especially on long trips, the driver’s seat features 10-way power adjustable seating (8-way power adjustable on Odyssey LX). Every tactile surface, from the interior door handles to the seat controls to the instrument panel, steering wheel, shift lever and electronic controls, latches and lids, are designed and manufactured to be pleasing to the touch and easy to operate. A tilt-and-telescopic steering column helps ensure that drivers of virtually all sizes can find a comfortable seating position. Additionally, the controls and switches all operate with typical Honda precision. Meters, gauges and displays are easy to locate and read, and secondary controls for the audio system, navigation system (available) and climate control system are well within convenient reach and feature large buttons and knobs.

Second Row
A key feature of the second row is its new “3-mode” design, which provides the ability to expand the distance between the seats by up to 1.5 inches each to increase comfort and enhance third-row access when child seats are being used in the second row. The second-row middle seat (EX and above) now has the ability to move forward, which brings child seats within a more convenient reach of the first row. The third mode can transform the middle seat into a large, comfortable armrest with beverage holders and a center tray for electronic devices. Overall, the new middle seat is wider and more adaptable than the previous version, making it a more convenient feature in the vehicle. Even with two child seats in the second row (one in an outboard location and one in a center location), access to the third row is possible without removing any of the child seats.

Third Row
Honda introduced the concept of third-row fold-down seating to the industry with the 1995 Odyssey and has improved upon it for every generation since. The 2011 Odyssey’s 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat provides a comfortable seating area and can quickly and conveniently fold down into the floor to accommodate cargo. For 2011, third-row width increases by utilizing side wall space previously occupied by the spare tire (now located under the floor between the front seats). Third-row leg room also increases substantially by 1.1 inch. Seat operation becomes even easier for 2011 with a more simplified, one-motion fold-down operation that requires only one hand to operate. The new system uses a high-mounted strap with a built-in release for fold-down operation instead of a lower-mounted latch-style release, which offers better leverage and less need to bend forward.

Sliding Doors
The Odyssey EX models and above come standard with power sliding doors (the Odyssey LX has manual sliding rear doors). For 2011, the power sliding doors operate with improved logic for better convenience. There also is a wider opening to enhance ingress and egress into the third row.

The database includes information on more than seven million points of interest, including gasoline stations, hotels, banks, restaurants, museums and local attractions.

2011 Honda Odyssey

Honda DVD Rear Entertainment System with 16.2-inch Ultra-Wide Display
A state-of-the-art, factory-integrated Rear Entertainment System (RES) with an ultra-wide display is standard on the Odyssey Touring Elite model. At 16.2 inches, the RES screen is the largest ever offered in a Honda. It’s also the most versatile, because it can simultaneously screen two different sources of programming side-by-side, such as a video game and a movie, for different passengers. The two programs being played can be easily switched from side to side, so the viewers don’t have to change seats. The wireless headphones supplied with this system can be tuned to either input source as desired. The system includes a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port for attaching high definition players and certain gaming consoles.

“intelligent” Multi-Information Display (i-MID)
The Odyssey EX-L model has an 8-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen with customizable features. Called the i-MID, this screen provides the driver with a variety of information. It can keep the driver updated about such items as the audio system, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® information and general vehicle information, in addition to displaying the rearview camera image. Personalized wallpaper using a JPEG-format photo can be added via the USB Audio Interface.

Blind Spot Information System
The Odyssey Touring Elite model includes an innovative blind spot information system (BSI). BSI helps give the driver additional information about conditions around the vehicle to enhance driving confidence. Sensors at each rear corner of the vehicle can detect another vehicle that may be positioned in the driver’s blind spot. A graphic indicator located on the interior garnish near the appropriate side mirror alerts the driver if another vehicle is detected in the blind-spot zone.

Safety Ratings

The safety concept for the 2011 Odyssey is to achieve the highest-possible overall safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In the substantially revised and tougher NHTSA New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) safety ratings starting with 2011 model-year vehicles, the Odyssey is targeted to achieve a 5-star overall Vehicle Safety Score (VSS), the highest possible under the new criteria set forth by the Federal government. (Actual test results were not available at the time of printing. Do not compare to results before 2011.) The new overall rating combines three ratings into one, and is comprised of a revised frontal collision test, a revised side collision test, and a rating for rollover resistance. The revised 2011 model-year NHTSA frontal- and side-collision tests utilize a wider range of parameters compared to previous tests completed through the 2010 model year. Testing procedures with crash-test dummies mandate a wider range of occupant size simulations. The side-impact crash-test rating integrates a side pole-impact test for the first time (vehicle moving sideways into a stationary pole), in addition to the previous sled impact test (sled moving into the side of a stationary vehicle). In IIHS testing, frontal-, side- and rear-impact ratings, along with a new roof-crush standard, all are projected to be GOOD (based on internal Honda crash test data), which is anticipated to earn the Odyssey a TOP SAFETY PICK award for 2011.

Standard Safety Equipment

An extensive list of safety equipment comes standard on every Odyssey. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. Additional standard safety equipment includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®), commonly referred to as electronic stability control; anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist; three-row side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor; driver’s and front passenger’s side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); dual-stage, multiple- threshold front airbags; and active front seat head restraints. Also, a pedestrian injury mitigation design in the front of the vehicle is intended to help absorb energy in the event of a collision.
