2014 Honda Odyssey Video Preview

April 1, 2013
The 2014 Honda Odyssey isn't glamorous, but once you've seen how family-friendly it can be, it's hard to not see it as functionally good-looking--and having an edge on crossovers in many ways.

This year, with the new 2014 model shown at New York, the automaker improves the Odyssey in a number of significant ways that you might not be able to see right away.

With a new front crash structure, Honda is expecting top crash scores in all tests, federal and IIHS. The 2013 model has already been a top performer.

Once you get to know the cabin, you'll appreciate the HondaLink system that allows Aha smartphone-based Internet music and content; the system can even read tweets or Facebook status. Combined with the 650-watt sound system and optional wide-screen entertainment system in the top Touring Elite model, that's quite the entertainment package.

And on that top Touring Elite model, the Odyssey now sucks--in a good way. At the top Touring Elite level, you get a strong fully integrated vacuum, co-developed with Shop-Vac. As social media manager Joel Feder shows in this video, the system has more than enough power to suck up cereals and snacks that land on the floor.
