TORRANCE, California — The carryover 2016 Honda Odyssey minivan will go on sale at Honda dealerships August 4 with the addition of a new Odyssey Special Edition model priced at $34,255. Pricing includes an $880 destination charge.
The Special Edition or SE model offers minivan buyers a ?high-value proposition,? according to a Honda statement Monday.
Slotting in between the EX and EX-L trim levels, the SE adds entertainment and convenience features previously only available on much pricier upper trim levels. These include a rear-seat entertainment system, 115-volt power outlet in the rear entertainment system control panel, Sirius XM radio and the HondaVAC in-vehicle vacuum cleaner.
?Our Odyssey customers have told us some of the features they value most and we have packaged these in the new Odyssey SE model to create a special-value edition that we know American families are going to love,? said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of Honda Sales.
The base 2016 Honda Odyssey LX is priced at $30,155, including shipping, reflecting a $300 price increase over the 2015 Odyssey.
The base 2016 Odyssey EX starts at $33,305, including shipping, for an increase of $150 versus the 2015 model.
The top-of-the-line 2016 Odyssey Touring Elite is priced at $45,630, including shipping, for a $150 increase over the comparable 2015 model.
All 2016 Odysseys are equipped with a 248-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Each 2016 Odyssey includes a rearview camera.
Edmunds says: Popular upper-trim options trickle down the Honda Odyssey hierarchy, granting greater access to popular features like rear-seat entertainment and HondaVac.
