Honda Motor has just unveiled the 2021 Honda Odyssey facelift and the MPV now features Gesture Control Sliding Doors for the first time ever and a new 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Cosmetically, the Oydssey remains largely the same though Honda did some changes on the front grille. The chrome bars on the grille are now thinner, giving the MPV a classier elegant look instead of the sportier look of the current car adopts.

Headlining the changes on the inside is the upgraded 10-inch floating touchscreen display. Other than that, Honda has also broken up the sea of black with brown chrome panels.

The crowning glory of the new Odyssey is, of course, the new gesture control power sliding door and reservation lock. To open the sliding doors, all the person needs to do is to hover their hand above the sensors on the door and do a sliding motion.

Reservation lock will increase the safety and convenience of the Odyssey by locking the sliding doors the moment they close. This the first time Honda has ever installed this feature on their cars.

Other than that, Honda has also swap out the foot brake for an Electronic Parking Brake (EPB). 

Honda will be rolling out more details of the Odyssey facelift in the coming weeks, so watch this space for more updates!
