2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Review

2011 Honda Odyssey came back with a new attraction with a fairly elegant design with the Elite Touring package with leather interior, navigation system with voice recognition, rear-seat entertainment with a 16.2-inch split-screen, and cool box in the center stack. On a test track, 248-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 gives us run 7.4-second 0-60 mph, and is expected to return 19/28 mpg city / highway.

Odyssey has a very spacious cabin space that can accommodate 8 adults. With a very spacious room you can store your luggage while traveling. Making it easier for you to choose what items would you take it with this Odyssey car.

During the first few weeks of driving the Odyssey, the flexibility of split personality and luxury is what seems to me the most. Without the second and third row, you have a transport capacity of 148.5 cubic feet. On the other hand, leather seats, navigation system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and audio streaming, satellite radio, power doors, and a backup camera to make the trip in the Odyssey about as sophisticated as in a luxury sedan.

We are obviously delighted to have another mini-van in the fleet and look forward to putting many miles on this vehicle. And we will put this Honda to test, carry a lot of equipment and a lot of people. We’ll see whether this all-new Odyssey for it.

2011 Honda Pilot Review

Pilot 2011 is a vehicle that families turn when they find you can not get the Honda Odyssey minivan with all-wheel drive. Like the Odyssey, Pilot can accommodate as many as eight people and offers only V-6 engine. This pilot has a five-speed automatic transmission and it can have on the front and all-wheel drive of approximately $ 29,000 in base form of the LX $ 40,000 as a full Touring model.

Pilot 3.5-liter V-6 makes 250 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 253 pound-feet of torque at 4800 rpm. All Pilot trims benefit from the Variable Cylinder Management technology of Honda, which allows the engine to operate on three or four cylinders under certain conditions to conserve fuel. Efficiency is the average in the Pilot 2011 for its class. All-wheel-drive models rated 16/22 mpg city / highway, while front-wheel-drive 2011 Pilot get 17/23 mpg. We will do harm if our readers do not mention that the Odyssey minivan at the price – with a larger interior – is EPA-rated at 18/27 mpg and 19/28, depending on transmission.

For the 2011 model year, Honda is now making a navigation system available on the EX-L model and the range-topping Touring models. If not, 2011 is a carryover year for pilots, who can get a small redesign for model year 2012.

Honda may not be messy with seating eight passengers, the interior packaging is an achievement that is above the average for middle grade crossing. Towing capacity of the Pilot 2011 with front-wheel drive is 3500 pounds and 4500 pound all-wheel-drive models. The radius of 38.6 feet and spinning is respectable, even if you bring three rows of seats worth of people, cargo capacity is 18.0 cubic feet. Expands to 47.7 cubic feet numbers when you fold down the second row seats and 87.0 cubic feet when second and third row seats folded flat.
