Indonesia welcomes 2021 Honda Odyssey facelift, coming to Malaysia this year 01

Grabbing headlines due to its Star Wars-esque gesture-controlled doors, the 2021 Honda Odyssey facelift is now in Indonesia, launched via an online event yesterday.

One variant only, no hybrid yet...

Much like Malaysia's current arrangement, the archipelago only gets one variant of the multi-purpose vehicle (MPV).

Named just ‘2.4’, the Indonesian-specs Odyssey is powered by a 2.4-litre, naturally-aspirated engine paired to a CVT. Output is rated at 173 PS and 225 Nm

Rather sharp-looking headlights

Tough but not obnoxious exterior

A pair of LED headlights, with sequential signal lights that are all the rage these days, give the Odyssey a distinctive yet imposing look.

The strong aesthetic flows on the sides as well, capped off by 17-inch wheels.

Meanwhile the rear-end gets a redesigned pair of LED combination tail lights. The design exudes a calm and confident look which looks even better in black - the other colour option Indonesian buyers get.

Futuristic interior

Walk into the Odyssey and it’s the most space-age interior one can get from an MPV in recent times.

Audio chimes through 8-speakers

It’s littered with screens - controls for the triple-zone automatic air-conditioning system is a small touchscreen located next to the gear lever, there’s a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and of course, there’s also an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Heck even the second-row occupants get touch controls for the air-conditioning system.

Speaking of second-row, occupants in the middle sit on 'sofa-like' leather captain seats, which are fully reclinable.

Other cool stuff includes a power sunroof, ambient lighting in the second row, and a powered tailgate with kick-sensor. 

Fitted with Honda Sensing

All manner of cameras and sensors in front

Safety-wise, the Indonesian-specs Odyssey comes with the Honda Sensing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) suite:

  • Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

The 360-degree camera in action

Beyond that, the Odyssey also gets a 360-degree camera, blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert (BSM, RCTA), hill start assist (HSA), in addition to regular features like 6 airbags and ISOFIX tethers.

So...coming to Malaysia?

Prefer yours in black? Japan-spec Odyssey pictured

It'll certainly be a busy year for Honda Malaysia, as the facelifted Odyssey is one of several models in this year's pipeline, which also includes the City RS and 2021 Honda City Hatchback
