Minivans tend to get a bad-rap for being ugly, non-sporty and slow. Well, with the new 2017 Honda Odyssey Mugen, that’s all about to change.
In the coming year, Honda expects its new Odyssey line of Mugen minivans to revolutionize the way people look at this type of vehicle.
In past years, Honda’s Odyssey was certainly a standout amongst minivans, but it lacked the sporty, sleek look that its 2017 counterpart is expected to have. Instead of a rotund exterior, expect sleeker, smoother styling in the new 2017 model. This updated silhouette is expected to dramatically re-brand how the Mugen looks and feels in the hands of a competent driver.
While there will be standardized models of the Odyssey, the 2017 Honda Odyssey Mugen will be considered its premium line of the minivan. The super-gorgeous all black grille and shiny honeycomb mesh are the trademark signature stylings found on the upcoming Mugen.
The skirts, wheels, and even the fenders will also feature brand new looks that will differentiate the Mugen from other vehicles in the Odyssey line. Aside from exterior niceties, the inside of the vehicle is also expected to be incredibly lush and beautiful.
New owners of the 2017 Mugen can count on super comfortable sofa-like seating, shiny all-aluminum pedals, and a flexible rear-view mirror that will grant users the ability to customize precisely how it looks and provides visible. While the standard Mugen features a single exhaust, pricier additions will come with the option of dual pipe exhaust to give it an edgier look.
The vehicle will also feature a myriad of safety features and 2.4 four-cylinder VTEC engine, so expect this minivan to rip and roar through the roads with some ferocity. For an even sportier drive and feel, most models will come equipped with paddle shifters for added precision and control for drivers that love to get everything they can out of their vehicles.
For passengers in the back, they can enjoy movies and television from the rear-mounted video displays, and safety features like assisted parking and ABS braking come standard.
Without a doubt, the 2017 Honda Odyssey Mugen is ready to have a major impact for those looking for the next great minivan.
