For the family-oriented driver with an on-the-go lifestyle, there is no minivan better equipped than the 2012 Honda Odyssey. The Odyssey is seen by many as the rebirth of the minivan. Its modern interior, strong fuel-efficiency and stellar performance make it an undeniable favorite in the minivan category this year. Available now at Planet Honda, here is all that you need to know about America's quintessential family wagon.
Offered in five trim levels, the Odyssey can truly be customized to meet the needs of any family. In our new vehicle inventory, we have available the LX, EX, EX-L (with DVD Rear Entertainment System and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System optional), Touring and Touring Elite. The EX is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that uses Variable Cylinder management to deliver 248 horsepower.
Whether you need all 8 seats filled, or you need all the cargo space you can get, the Odyssey's brilliant interior design can accommodate your needs. The second row of seats can be slid forward up to 5.5 inches, while the third row can be slid 1.5 inches laterally or laid completely flat, depending on what works best (the second row can be completely removed as well). No matter what your Odyssey is packed with, a Blind Spot Information System and Multi-Angle rearview Camera will help you maintain 360 degree awareness during any situation. And with Honda's DV Ultrawide Rear Entertainment System with HDMI capability, you can keep your passengers satisfied for the long haul.
Any conversation about the Odyssey would be incomplete without mentioning its stellar safety repertoire. The Odyssey earned a 5-Start Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration this year, even after the NHTSA made its evaluation more stringent. Drivers can depend on anti-lock brakes that use Electronic Brake Distribution to maintain control during hard braking. In the rear, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and an Occupant Position Detection System make sure that people of all sizes are secure.
At Planet Honda, we pride ourselves on offering customers one of the industry's best line of vehicles. The 2012 Odyssey is an all-around value gives you and your family unequalled peace of mind. Its combination of safety, performance and innovation are second to none.
