The Honda Motor Company began in Japan in 1948 as a manufacturer of motorcycles. It wasn’t until 1963 that Honda sold its first four-wheeled vehicle: a mini-pickup truck and a sports car. Honda moved to the United States market in 1986 with the luxury brand Acura. Honda is best known for its compact, durable, fuel-efficient cars: the Honda Civic, Honda Accord, and more recently, the Honda Fit.
About the Honda Odyssey
US News ranks the Honda Odyssey first in its class, and with good reasons. The designers at Honda seem to have thought of everything, and the Odyssey is a powerful, efficient, sleek vehicle.
The most recent generation of the Odyssey was released in 2011, but for the 2014 model year, Honda issued an upgraded model. The newest edition of the Odyssey has a six-speed automatic transmission, redesigned exterior, and Pandora Radio and auxiliary input capabilities. Plus a vacuum that’s built into the vehicle. Add this to the 2011 model’s in-seat DVD players, 12-speaker stereo system, and voice-controlled GPS and DVD systems, and you’ve got one high-tech minivan.
Honda Odyssey Environmental Impact
The Odyssey’s V6 engine is quick to accelerate and gets drivers 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, which is great for its class. Minivans tend to be clunkier, less efficient vehicles, and Honda’s Odyssey is showing a trend towards fuel-efficiency, no matter the size of the vehicle.
