The 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R is coming to the markets soon. The previous generation was the best generation so far and this minivan looked really amazing. Now, Honda has decided to give this minivan a more performance-oriented, a famous Type R variant.
This Type R Odyssey will arrive with plenty of aggressiveness and a stylish exterior. What may sound strange is the fact that this is a perfect family vehicle. Sure, the safety is great thanks to the various safety equipment, however, the quickness and overall strong performance are coming.
2020 Honda Odyssey Type R will get an aggressive exterior
Just like the Honda Civic Type R, the 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R will come with aggressive design. The front fascia will come with a gloss-black grille and red Honda’s and Type R’s logos. Fog lamps and headlights are larger, just like the air vents in the corners. Moreover, all of the light units are getting a LED technology as standard. A hood will get a sporty scoop as most of the Honda’s performance cars.
The side profile will look more modern and sportier, and the inclusion of new 20-inch alloy wheels is looking superb. The rear gets a Type R’s spoiler, exactly the same spoiler as the Civic Type R model. Black doors and red stripes are a must for this variant.
2020 Honda Odyssey Type R interior gets red accents and red Type R logo
The interior is slightly different than the regular model. It is a perfect balance between the sports car and a family minivan. The 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R is coming with much more standard features and premium materials. Black leather is literally everywhere, just like the red accents and red Type R logo. The aluminum pedals are standard and the steering wheel is looking amazing.
The space inside the cabin is also great and ample. The layout of the buttons is perfect and generally, the layout of seats and controls is good. The instrument board comes with plenty of touch-pad controls. The touchscreen is all-new and it is 9.4-inch wide. Seats are placed lower, the headroom is better and legroom will stay intact. The cabin is modern and it will include a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and much more. Moreover, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are in the offer.
2020 Honda Odyssey Type R engine will produce 455 HP
The 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R will come with a single engine. The 2.0-liter drivetrain from the base model is gone as Honda decides to put a 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 engine. It can produce up to 455 HP and 380 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to this engine, the new Honda Odyssey hits from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. A 6-speed automatic gearbox is available as well.
2020 Honda Odyssey Type R price and release date
The base model is priced at around $30,000. The top-range Elite trim level will cost slightly above $45,000. With those prices in mind, the all-new 2020 Honda Odyssey Type R will arrive with the $50,000 price mark. We can expect this super-minivan to arrive on the markets in November 2019.
