Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda’s automobile business unit in the Philippines, rolls out the New Odyssey EX Variant with 8-passenger seat capacity. A year since the Japan-made Odyssey entered the Philippine market, the Odyssey line-up was expanded as a response to the evolving needs of the market.
The New Odyssey EX gets a 3-passenger, 60:40 split bench for its second row and Honda retained its 3rd Row Magic seats. It is equipped with a fold flat mechanism, which stores the third row under the floor to provide more cargo room and flexibility. The 3rd row also features three-way split reclining structure, which allows passengers to individually fold or recline their seats in preferred angles for utmost comfort.
This enables the New Odyssey EX to haul 8 passengers (2+3+3 seat configuration) comfortably with generous head, elbow and leg room. It can also hold a sizeable amount of load even when all seats are in use. Furthermore, the center seats on the second and third rows may also be folded to convert the vehicle to a 6-seater with center storage especially for long items.
The New Odyssey EX is equipped with the same Earth Dreams Technology 2.4 liter DOHC i-VTEC engine that produces a maximum power output of 175 ps at 6,200 rpm, and a maximum torque of 23.0 kg-m at 4,000 rpm. The engine is paired with an Earth Dreams Technology Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and paddle shifters.
The New Odyssey EX Variant is available at all Honda dealerships with a suggested retail price of Php 1,948,000. A 7-seater with captain seats Honda Odyssey (EX-V Navi) is also available with the suggested retail price of Php 2,368,000.
