2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Thirsty??
April 08, 2011
Our long-term 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring includes neither beverages nor ice.
But if you're thirsty, there's a place for your drinks in the front.
And in the rear.
And in the 3rd row. (That square shaped opening is the wrong shape for a french-fry holder, so I'm counting that too.)
So including bottle holders in all four doors and those 2 non-french-fry holders, I count 16 bottle and cupholders.
When I used to work for Big Motor Car Corp, one of the first things people would comment on when they learned of my profession was the cupholders -- how they should be improved. (Apparently, they thought they were too shallow, among other things.)
And the cupholders on the Odyssey are an indirect reflection of such feedback.
Many Japanese and German vehicle development engineers I've interacted with are amazed by the in-vehicle beverage drinking capability of American drivers.
So am I.
