Honda has released a teaser image of the upcoming fourth generation Honda Odyssey, a 7-seater low-rider MPV based on the Honda Accord platform.

The teaser image only shows the side profile but it reveals the new Odyssey keeps faithful to the third generation’s low-rider look, which despite being lower than your conventional tall MPV, still offers a large interior room thanks to the low floor.

The rear end gets slim and shapely lights while the front you can see hints of the new large grille with silver borders (reminds me of the Mk5 Golf R32 somewhat) that extends all the way to the lower bumper air intake, very much like the Honda FCX Clarity.

The third gen Odyssey only came with an inline-4 2.4 litre engine, so if the new Odyssey carries over this single engine line-up you can expect it to get the same power boost up to 180 PS as the new Honda Accord. Could the VCM 3.5 litre V6 be added this time?

What we do know is that the new Odyssey will get a new multi-view camera system which displays views from a total of 4 wide-angle CCD cameras on a navigation screen to reduce blindspots and help with parallel or garage parking. The CCD cameras are installed on the front and rear of the vehicle as well as on the wing mirrors.

Images from the 4 cameras are synthesized and additional information is added such as a projection line which shows the vehicle’s projected trajectory path calculated based on steering angle information. You can use this trajectory path to help align the car to reverse into a parking lot and position the Odyssey with higher accuracy. Also added is a refernce line which provides a reference for distance between the vehicle and other objects.

Look after the jump for more views from the new camera system.
