Honda released the new 2009 Honda Odyssey on the Japanese market. The 2009 Honda Odyssey comes with a new 2.4-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine that's coupled with a torque converter-equipped CVT which offers better performance and a lower fuel consumption (13.2km/L). The 2009 Honda Odyssey also comes with DBW (drive-by-wire) control and an ECON mode. The ECON mode of the 2009 Honda Odyssey improves fuel economy by applying collaborative control of the CVT and air conditioner to reduce engine load.
The 2009 Honda Odyssey has a lower center of gravity which offers better comfort and handling.
Some of the new technologies that equip the 2009 Honda Odyssey include the Multi-view Camera System and a special mobility-assistive version that has a lift-up front passenger seat.
This is quite similar to the older one but new sleek design and functions.
