Fuel Consumption has been improved to 14.0km/L.
Some how rather disappointed to know that Absolute power is lower at 190PS. And suspension has been changed to Front Macpherson strut and Rear Torsion Beam.

Finally, an odyssey with sliding doors! I really like it...
Thanks for the post. Will head down to see when available in Dec.
I wonder how much the PIs will charge for the same car. Maybe 160-70?
I had originally been aiming for an Estima after my rb1 expires but now it looks like an Ody is my car of choice again!

Hi all,

Photos fresh from 43rd Tokyo Motor Show. Crowds hanging around the newly launched Odyssey DBA-RC1.

Like the super low floor, easy to get in-out. It's just 30cm above ground. Initially had thought the seat height will high like Estima, but it was lower and comparable to RB1 & RB3.

Also realised that this new Odyssey doesn't come with spare wheel.

Looks like Singapore is slow to launch this model unlike the earlier models, Malaysia already launch theirs.

Any idea when it will hit our shores, must be the high COE which is detering KM from bring it in.

Awesome pictures.

For those preferring to save $10k to $20K from the retail price via Parallel Importers versus KM, the available models are http://www.goo-net-exchange.com/catalog/HONDA__ODYSSEY/

PI Odyssey Absolute

Post by junning » Tue Dec 31, 2013 6:44 pm

Hi all,

One PI has already brought in the new 8-seater 190PS Odyssey Absolute.

Pricing looks attractive vs Kah 175PS non-Absolute. $169.8k vs $186,900/ $196,900.

Re: PI Odyssey Absolute

I went to check it out 2 weeks back.

I wouldn't touch the PI model at Leco Prestige in Turf City for now unless they reduce the price by 10K to $159K @ COE $75,700.

Other than the engine, they brought in the lowest spec model or most basic barebone model.

Missing items are:

1 Electric door on the right side
HDMI and 2 x USB Input
Honda Link Audio System
Sunroof
Self Parking System
Multi View Camera
Electric and Memory seat (passenger / driver side)
Anti-Rain Nano Treatment on windscreen, front windows and mirrors.
Rain Sensor Wipers.
Intelligent Headlight (turns with steering wheel and auto dim)
Audio and Siri Iphone 5 control on Steering Wheel.
Curtains at rear Windows

See video of an AD Odyssey release here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfNtxvRhkt8

Would be a good buy if they reduce price by 10k for the missing equiptment.

Kah Motors now offering their EXV Model at $191k after
Discount COE at $75,700. Their KM margin at this price is $40K plus.... Still expensive. I think KM will likely reduce the price further during official launch.

There is really nothing much the SE can give other than 3M floor mat which I doubt will be of the customised type. Go for direct discount and high trade in for your used car instead to try and offset the cost.

The ody already has alot of high tech features incorporated and understand there is a safety issue regarding the side airbag that may not be able to deploy properly if aftermarket leather seat are provided for the 8 seater.

V kool already comes standard
