The 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is not your typical minivan. This upgraded version of the Odyssey introduces even more improvements on the 2014 model including technological advancements, a modified interior, and new exterior features.

Already a sales leader in its market segment, Honda looks forward to bigger and better things and increase the gap between them and the competition when it goes on sale this summer.

Engine & Performance

The Touring Elite shares the 3.5 liter i-VTECH, V6 with the rest of the Odyssey family, but you will only find it mated with a 6 speed automatic transmission in the Elite (vs. 5 speed on other models).

The engine's output is 247 horsepower and 250 lb.-foot of torque overall. For a large vehicle, the Odyssey Touring Elite responds well during overtaking situations. This vehicle isn't built for overall speed, taking 8.8 seconds to move from 0-60 MPH. It handles more like a car than a van thanks in large part to its isolated front and rear sub-frames. The steering uses a variable displacement system that aids to providing a smooth and quiet ride.

Exterior

Speaking of bigger, the 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite is longer and wider this year. While the wheelbase remains the same, the vehicle's length has increased by an inch and its width by 2. You might expect even this relatively minor change to add to its bulkiness. However, the new Odyssey Touring Elite has a sleeker appearance thanks to the engineers dropping the roofline by about a half an inch.

The hood and front fenders are made of aluminum and the grille is more prominent with the twin bars. The chrome trimmed fog lights are a nice touch residing beneath the darkly finished headlamp assemblies. The side mirrors come in two tones, the rear view mirror has LED taillight bars, and Honda adds even fresh badging.

Interior

The inside of the Touring Elite is roomy, even for a family vehicle such as this. The legroom can accommodate anyone shorter than maybe your average professional basketball player and the third seat is still present with the capability of folding down with one hand, a nice plus.

The instrument panel is both stylish and convenient with the center section easily reachable to control all functions. The Touring Elite comes standard with an onboard entertainment system including an 16 inch screen. The "piece de resistance" for this family van is the first ever "in-vehicle" vacuum cleaning system.
