For 2015, the Philippine market gets the Japanese market Odyssey, replacing the old six cylinder American counterpart. While the Japan spec Odyssey is smaller on the outside, it retains its 7 seat capacity with even more seating flexibility. The Odyssey is powered by the Accord's 2.4 liter engine which features i-VTEC and Earth Dream technology, making it more efficient than the US spec Odyssey with its 3.5 liter V6. The Odyssey only comes in one variant, the EX-V Navi which starts at PHP2,348,000.
Driving around town, the difference between the 2015 and 2012-2014 models are very clear. The new Odyssey rides and drives more confidently, given the suspension settings. The handling is good, but the ride is clearly not as plush as the previous model (as American cars usually are). Nevertheless, the comfortable seats more than make up for it if you're seated at the back.
In all honesty the 2015 Odyssey really cannot be fully compared to it's outgoing American counterpart of the same name as both are very different vehicles made to suit very different needs and very different customers. The U.S. version is made for families and soccer practices while this one seems to be targeted more for successful executives and dinners in the most affluent parts of town.
