See How Honda Odyssey Celebrates 25 Years With Lots Of Sticky Chrome

The Honda Odyssey has been around for 25 years. So how could Honda celebrate better than beat a bunch of chrome on the fifth generation of its proven minivan? A 25th Anniversary Edition package is available from model year 2020 with all sorts of adornments.

The package, which is essentially an accessory collection, includes

numerous 25th anniversary badges, a special key, illuminated door sills and chrome trim for roof rails and doors. Two levels of the package are available, one with the badges and chrome trim and one with some gaudy chrome wheels (the aesthetics are not considered here). But we admire Honda's willingness to stick to stickiness.

The other significant update for the 2020 Odyssey is that the 10-speed automatic, previously reserved for touring and elite trim, is now standard across the board. The previous nine-speed automatic for lower panels are no longer available. In our tests, there were negligible differences between the acceleration times of the two transmissions, but the 10-speed had better fuel economy in the real world.

Prices for the 2020 Odyssey starts at N11,442,600 for the base LX and reaches N17,429,400 for the top elite model.
