After the emergence and sheer popularity of crossover SUVs, many thought that the time of the minivan has come to a close. While this was true for many models, the Honda Odyssey remains unbowed.

The new 2021 Honda Odyssey has been teased online and we’ve got all the juicy details.

Exterior design

From all the renderings that we’ve reviewed, the new minivan has received a dramatic face-lift. Its grille section is narrower. An upside down U shaped bar cuts across the front fascia emerging from the upper parts of the right headlight to the nose and back up over the left headlight.

From the information we’ve gathered, its front bumper will contribute to being a major part of the car’s nose and also provide an air intake vent. The big van will breathe easier thanks to this facility. Its fog lights are situated to the right and left of the bumper. Arranged in a vertical way, they boost illumination in all driving conditions.

The big minivan’s features get even more dramatic towards its mid-section. Here, its huge windshield curves behind the hood in a stately fashion. Judging from the pictures released online, the minivan’s rear view mirrors have an LED strip along their middle part.

The minivan’s roofline slopes aerodynamically down to its rear. In this part of the vehicle, there are wraparound, angled taillights. The rear windshield occupies nearly half of the tailgate. The license plate holder is aptly placed while the rear bumper has some reflectors upon it. We predict that the new Odyssey will ride on 18 inch wheels from the factory. Discerning drivers will have a chance to upgrade them to 19 inches.
