Styling Design of 2014 Model Year ODYSSEY

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.26 No.2

Summary

The grand concept for the 2014 model year ODYSSEY was set as creating the “Next Multi Seater Saloon,” and the vehicle was developed as a minivan offering new value via an optimal balance between high levels of utility value and automotive value.
The realization of this concept involved the creation of a large and roomy cabin space based on an ultra-low floor platform and the realization of a high level of dynamic performance with a low center of gravity.
Advanced dynamic styling was realized for the exterior design based on the theme “Solid Streamline,” while the three rows of seats in the interior each offer a sense of high quality based on the theme “Modern Suite Room.”
