The first acquaintance with the new product took place at the Chengdu Chinese Motor Show, which opened last week. The Honda Elysion minivan shares the platform with the Honda Odyssey and is considered its low-cost alternative.

Honda brought to Chengdu an updated version of the Honda Elysion minivan, considered a budget alternative to the Honda Odyssey. These models have one platform, but the design is different. So, Elysion 2020 flaunts a new V-shaped radiator grill with large horizontal stripes, modified bumpers and head optics with a different “filling”. The hybrid version of the model also received its portion of updates. Now for the performance of the Honda Elysion Hybrid meets the modernized 2.0 i-MMD based on a two-liter 146-horsepower “aspirated” and an electric engine. The total return of such a power plant reaches 215 horsepower.

For every 100 kilometers in a mixed cycle, such a car spends only 5.9 liters.

Recall that the Honda Odyssey in honor of the 25th anniversary also underwent a slight restyling. Now, for all versions, a single gearbox is available – a ten-speed automatic developed by Honda engineers. Up to this point, only buyers of top modifications could count on such a gearbox.

The anniversary Honda Odyssey is already available for purchase, but the restyled Honda Elysion will appear in Chinese car dealerships on September 11th. According to preliminary data, the cost of new items will start from 249,800 yuan
