All-new Odyssey minivans to get 10-speed automatic transmission as model turns 25
For over a third of its lifetime, the Honda Odyssey has been the top-selling minivan in the United States. To celebrate this and its 25th anniversary, Honda announced on Monday, Aug. 12, that not only will a special edition accessory package launch with the 2020 models, but the entire lineup will also be getting a series of standard updates.
Starting with the 2020 generation, all Odyssey minivans will come equipped with 10-speed automatic transmission as well as Idle Stop technology. Previously, only the Touring and Elite trims had both of these specs, and the LX, EX and EX-L lacked Idle Stop and had 9-speed automatic transmissions.
As part of an opt-in special 25th Anniversary Package, Honda has refinished a series of exterior details in chrome including the roof rack, bodyside moldings and rear bumper protector. Special 25th Anniversary badges can be found on the exterior and a set of 19-inch wheels are optional with the package.
The 2020 Odyssey will be hitting dealerships tomorrow, Aug. 14, along with the 25th Anniversary Package. If the optional wheels are included, the package adds $2,800 (over P140,000) to the final price. HM/JB
