Honda's minivan, redesigned in 2005 with new structure and powertrain plus substantial on-board safety gear, adds equipment options for 2006 such as a DVD video entertainment system for the deluxe Touring edition.
Odyssey carries responsive handling systems and a powerful V6 engine, which this year nets 244 hp. The top two trim grades apply Honda's VCM to decrease cylinder firing to conserve on fuel.
Safety devices on Odyssey extend to a traction control system (TCS) and vehicle stability assist (VSA), plus curtain-style air bags above all outboard seats. Honda offers Odyssey in four trims -- LX, EX, EX Leather and top Touring. Inside, there are up to three tiers of seats in place with options for folding or removing the second-row seats and a 'Magic Seat' in back that folds into the floor. Slate Green is one of several new shades of body paint for Odyssey.
