The 2005 Honda Odyssey
And they call it: All new.
Sure, the engine has more power, it is even roomier, quieter ,faster, blah blah blah.....
But frankly, doesn't it look almost exactly like the previous one? In 5 years, aren't things supposed to look just a little bit more modern?
The painted front grille has a weird chrome line around it that makes it look cheap and outdated. The whole design looks like a 10 year old Korean van. How long can these guys cruise on their reputation...
The "all new" interior isn't that much better. At least the antic column shifter is gone. Replaced by a dash mounted unit that is so popular in European and Japanese vans.
It's nothing like the amazing Nissan Quest minivan interior design.
