Honda Odyssey teaser

Heading for the New York International Auto Show at the end of the month are the updated-for-2014 Honda Odyssey and the production version of the third-gen Acura MDX.

With regards to the Odyssey, Honda has not let out any details – all we have at the moment is the above teaser image (if you can call it that) which we guess pays homage to school-run moms, the kids they ferry around and the cereal bits that inevitably litter the footwells. Remember, this is the US-spec car (we get the JDM version); cendol strands could probably be used in our context.

Rumour has it though, that the minivan could be powered by a new 3.5 litre V6 with 278 hp and 341 Nm of torque, and be driven through a six-speed auto as standard. Safety features such as adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning are also speculated to be included, but we don’t have long to wait before Honda gets official.

The 2014 Acura MDX showed up in Detroit in concept form; the production car should differ little from that, visually at least. The new 3.5 litre i-VTEC SOHC V6 with Variable Cylinder Management will be offered with AWD or FWD.
