Honda Odyssey新改款,搭载星球大战科技!它将于2021年登陆大马

之前我们报道过,新款2021 Honda Odyssey发布了第二次改款车型。在我们发布那篇文章的时候,大马Honda还没有宣布任何关于引进新款车型的消息。但现在我们预计,第二次改款车型将在2021年登陆马来西亚。 第五代Honda Odyssey的第二次改款在日本发布,Honda将老款的中网换成了侵略性更强的造型,使其有了更加激进的外观。 尽管只是中网的改动,但相比目前仍在大马市售的第一次改款车型来说,这辆车看起来更加方正,也更加宽大。在内装方面,这辆MPV仍旧沿用了老款的设计。 但我们最期待的新技术,是新的手势控制电动侧滑门。这个配备包括一整套安装在尾门上的传感器,它们可以侦测到你的手或手肘,这样你就可以像在《星球大战》中使用原力一样打开和关闭车门了。 没错,这套系统也能侦测到你的手肘。如果你的手上抱着东西的话,这就能够帮到你了,因为你不用把东西放下也能打开车门。 动力方面与老款一致,有一具2.4升四缸汽油引擎和一具2.0升汽油混动引擎可选,后者与即将上市的Honda City RS的i-MMD e:HEV引擎相似。 在Odyssey登陆马来西亚后,它将会成为除Toyota Alp

Even Christian von Koenigsegg has channelled his genius into developing a 600 HP three-cylinder engine. With these developments however, some of us still remain very sceptical of them.

It has been about two weeks of ownership with our Perodua Ativa. How have things been? Well, the rattling sound we mentioned previously had gotten really annoying.

We needed to take the Ativa to Sepang on Tuesday to check out some Malaysian-made electric car, so we held off going to the service centre until Wednesday.
