Honda's minivan packs a powerful engine and long list of equipment for safety and comfort with the editions of 2003. Odyssey's extended chassis, derived from Honda's popular Accord sedan, carries car-like independent suspension and steering mechanisms. The platform sets up a smooth and stable ride quality, while also forging a passenger compartment of generous dimensions. The 3.5-liter V6 engine generates 240 hp and links to a five-speed automatic transmission. Odyssey has two sliding side doors set behind the two front hinged doors. Top trim EX uses power controls to open and close the sliding doors. Inside, there are three rows of seats in place, with twin buckets in front followed by a middle row of convertible buckets and a back bench for two that folds flat into the floor in a neat disappearing act. Deluxe options on Odyssey 2003 extend to a navigation system with leather package and DVD-based entertainment system. The latest paint shades for Odyssey are Sage Brush Pearl and Nighthawk Black Pearl.
