Review: 2014 Honda Odyssey

2014 Honda Odyssey

The updated 2014 Honda Odyssey has great new special features and great technology

The updated 2014 Honda Odyssey has hit the Waikem Honda showroom. With its genius features, updated styling and improved fuel economy, the Odyssey is still the ultimate family vehicle.

When you talk about what’s new, you have to start with HondaVac, the vacuum cleaner built right into the van. It seems so obvious now, but it did take until 2014 for someone to think of it. The vacuum is installed in cargo area, and features a long hose and two attachments. We know your kids are messy and sometimes there’s a spill in the second or third row. Now with the HondaVac you’ll be able to sweep out the van on the go. We love the HondaVac and think it’s a true game changer. It comes standard on the Elite Touring model.
