2011 Honda Odyssey (concept)

The 2011 Honda Odyssey won't be out in production form until this fall, but the concept unveiled today in Chicago shows off a sleek, engaging new look that is expected to flavor the final version. These live images give a better feel for the vehicle's proportions than the studio shots revealed along with the car earlier today.

It's one of the most attractive minivans yet to our eyes, and though it'll never take on the visceral appeal of a sports car simply due to its interior space mandates, it definitely offers an alternative to the standard bland-van if you're forced to give up the hot rod in favor of family-friendly wheels.

Peruse the live shots then hit up the official preview story for the full details.

  1. Not bad, almost crossover-ish. However, Honda's current JDM Odyssey still leaves this in the dust.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Shades of Opel Meriva with the side rear windows, it has also lost the low slung look of past Odysseys.. also if it weren't for the badge I could have sworn this was a Toyota.

  3. I think this actually shows a lot of inspiration from the JDM Odyssey. It's not as slim or small as the JDM version, but the front end, particularly around the headlights and the shape of the grille outline, as well as the arch of the roofline, are very similar, and give it a nice proportion.
    Here is the JDM version for comparison: http://www.honda.co.jp/ODYSSEY/gallery/photo/
    I don't see the Toyota resemblance at all, though, gazzed.

  5. Nice but it looks like a truck from the front.

  6. It's difficult to tell scale from this pix, but it looks larger than the outgoing model. The roofline definitely says Mercedes to me, but is nicely matched with the rest of the vehicle. Honda seems to be getting more adventurous with their designs and this one may finally be a good one. Now, if someone at Honda will wake up and get rid of that awful lump of chrome on the front of Acuras we'd be getting somewhere...

  7. I do see the resemblance in the headlight area; I guess it's the (ugly, IMO) chrome grille that throws me off. Maybe it would look better with a tasteful wire mesh?
    However, the overall proportions of this still look conventional compared to the JDM one. I just wish minivans could be low-slung and sleek like the JDM version.
    On a side note, the differences between the US Toyota Sienna and the JDM one are even more extreme; it looks like a spaceship compared to what we get!

  8. Look at the hideously new Avalon front and tell me it doesn't resemble a Toyota..

  9. This certainly looks like some of the Toyotas we get in Australia and Europe, sort of like the refreshed Corolla, Camry etc. And I suppose it sort of has a slight resemblance to the version we get down here (the JDM version) but it still looks like a van - looking at the JDM from the front, it could just be an Accord Euro wagon with a different grill... And I agree that the lights look a little ergh, as does the grill - not the sort of style that I like at all... Imagine how much money Honda would make it they sold the JDM version in the US...
