The popular family Honda Odyssey minivan entered its eight years of production and is perhaps the most selling model in its segment. The upcoming model is totally redesigned both inside and outside. Furthermore, the 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid offers a smooth ride, nicely appointed and practical interior and the list of features is really long.
This minivan is family-oriented, the exterior is very modern and the newest Odyssey offers a hybrid drivetrain that is available with an all-wheel-drive system.
2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid Exterior is unique
The 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid will arrive as a lighter vehicle it has an attractive look and a more distinctive design. This minivan enters its fifth-generation and the styling is unique, compared with its predecessors. The lines are more defined and some flashy chrome accents are included.
Moreover, the new Odyssey looks more aggressive and the front grille is slightly wider as a result. The headlights are smaller and come with LED units. The hood gained more muscles and nice inward curves. However, the rear is more attractive as well with the wide taillights that comes with a new c-shape taillight. The top-line Elite model offers 19-inch alloy wheels and power folding mirrors.
2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid comes with very modern and practical cabin
The 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid comes with very modern and stylish cabin. On top of that, the interior offers plenty of features and high-tech amenities.
Everything inside is well-made, from the buttons and controls to the cup holders. The overall design and shapes are smartly designed and everything is available in high-quality materials.
A digital gauge cluster adds a new 8-inch touchscreen that is standard and forward panel is all-digital. A new magic slide seats are perhaps the biggest addition. This seating system makes second-row seats to move both up and back, left and right. With this feature, the passengers can sit in every way they desire and this system comes handy when front seat passengers need to reach for something in the rear. For the entertainment, there is a mighty 60-Watt AM/FM/HD/SiriusXM Audio System that includes 6 speakers with subwoofer. Also, features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth streaming audio with MP3/auxiliary input jack are standard on this model.
Safety System and Features
The newest 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid that is available with AWD system will bring great security. Like the base one model, this one will offer in a standard package features like VSA Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Blind Spot Information and sensors, HondaLink Emergency Sos, Traction Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Low Tire Pressure Warning and for the youngest Rear Child Safety Locks.
2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid Engine and Transmission
The addition of hybrid drivetrain is perhaps the biggest addition to the 2019 Odyssey model. For Honda, this was the most and only logical choice. While the regular gasoline engine is offering good performances in every category, some minivans such as Chrysler Pacifica are offering a much better fuel economy.
So, the 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid will include a new drivetrain that comes with a new all-wheel-drive system. This Minivan will use the same hybrid drivetrain with AWD as Honda Acura. A 3.0-liter V6 will be available with three electric motors. Two motors are producing 36 HP each, while the third motor makes 47 HP.
A 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission is available as the only option. This mix will burst 321 HP and 290 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy figures aren’t specified yet, but we expect the Odyssey to match Chrysler Pacifica.
2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid Price and Release Date
While the gasoline model starts at $31,500, the 2019 Honda Odyssey Hybrid with an all-wheel-drive setup will cost $10,000 more. This hybrid minivan will go on sale at the beginning of 2019.
