The new Honda Odyssey was launched on the Japanese market in November last year, but China still has to do with the old one. The Odyssey is one of the most popular MPV’s on the Chinese auto market so the new one has to be good, and it certainly looks the business with a giant grille with four heavily chromed bars.
