The Honda Odyssey, currently in its third generation, was the best-selling minivan in the U.S. in 2008 and 2009 so its successor better bring something special to table as it has some pretty big shoes to fill.

We'll get a preview of what Honda has in store for its next generation Odyssey as the automaker has announced today that it will unveil a concept version of the new minivan at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show on February 10.

Some of the improvements we hope are in store for the new Odyssey include a lighter kerb weight (the current model can weigh upwards of 4,600 pounds), better mileage and a more refined interior.

Honda's only official comment is that the vehicle will "further enhance its hallmark qualities of innovation, quality, safety and fun-to-drive character while increasing its overall efficiency."

The next generation Odyssey minivan will most likely be built towards the end of the year at the same Honda assembly plant in Lincoln, Alabama where the current version is sourced.

  1. I'm still waiting for the Acurafied version ... so it can compete w/ that Mercedes minivan.

  2. I was wondering what you were going to do for April fools day this year. After your Corvette piece had me scratching my head trying to add everything up, until the end. Needless to say, I look forward to your April 1 blogs.Is GM intentionally overpricing the Volt so that demand will be low, in order to say “Oh, gosh, the Volt didn’t take off, I guess we’ll have to trash all of the research..again.” just like they did with the EV-1? Deflate the demand by making the car not as appealing?

  3. Damn, I guess that means we won't get the (awesome) JDM Odyssey? I really wish the Japanese brands would bring over their "proper" minivans. The JDM Odyssey and Toyota Sienna look like spaceships!
