Honda Odyssey Steals New York Auto Show with New Functional Feature

We read about a lot of really cool gadgets and features automobile manufactures put in their vehicles, so it takes a lot to get us a THIS excited about what Honda put in the new Honda Odyssey. Any guesses? Ok, we’ll tell you because we just can’t keep it to ourselves any longer:

A vacuum!

We know, we know. It sounds rather lame until you pause to think about how wonderful it would really be to have a vacuum right there in your car!

We all know you have arrived at adulthood when you started getting excited about things like new appliances, new socks, and other ‘mundane’ items. Equally so, you know you have arrived at parenthood when you are driving around in a minivan, which by many accounts is not so exciting (unless it’s the Honda Odyssey, which can really move). However, Honda has managed to combine the seemingly not so cool minivan with excitement over seemingly mundane things and made REALLY cool and functional feature.

And it’s not just us parents who are excited about the possibility of not having to haul the vacuum out to the car or stop at a car wash every time a kid steps on a mountain of spilled fish crackers. EVERYONE at the New York International Auto Show was crowded around  to see the vacuum, which, according to this article, stole the show!

The article points out that the Honda Odyssey didn’t change much from the previous version (and why would it? It’s the best-selling and highest quality minivan in the industry), except for the new vacuum that acts like a central vacuum system in many new homes.

“You plug the hose onto the wall and start cleaning. Honda spokesman Chris Martin demonstrated the machine’s speed at picking up Fruit Loops and  fragments of Goldfish crackers. The hose is long enough to reach every corner of the interior and can also be used to clean another car parked nearby.”

What do you think? Is the fact that Honda ingeniously included a vacuum in the Honda Odyssey big news?

 

2012 Honda Odyssey Comes With Multi-Angle Rearview Cameras

As a Honda blogger, it’s usually pretty easy for me to stay on top of Honda news, especially about popular vehicles like the Honda Odyssey. However, this article gave me something I did not know: the 2012 Honda Odyssey comes with a multi-angle rearview camera standard on the Touring and EX-L models.

A one-angle rearview camera comes standard on all 2012 Honda Odyssey models.

“The standard angle, wide angle, and straight down angle are life-savers in a vehicle as big as the 2012 Honda Odyssey,” said John Clough, sales manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “The Honda Odyssey has some really great features that make it the best in its class. The multi-angle rearview camera is just one more thing that takes it over the top.”

While the multi-angle rearview camera is available, you won’t get as affordable as you will on the 2012 Honda Odyssey.

According the article, “The multi-angle rearview camera comes standard in the Odyssey Touring Elite model I tested, which had a sticker price of $44,485. It’s also standard on the Touring model that starts at $41,430 and on the EX-L model with the Satellite-Linked Navigation System that starts at $37,125. By comparison, the Around View Monitor is standard on the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum edition, which starts at $39,170.”

Check out the article below to see a quick video of how the multi-view rearview camera works on a touch screen! Or even better, stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the 2012 Honda Odyssey for a test drive and try the rearview camera yourself!

Five Things to Look Forward to From Honda

This is a really interesting article that Automobilemag.com did based on a sit-down that Honda CEO Takanobu Ito had with American journalists.

 

  1. Honda wants more sporty cars some time in the future. While Ito didn’t give any specifics or lay out any plans for sportier cars, he did say that he wants them in Honda’s future. This leads me to the next point (which is actually point number five in the original article, but I think my way makes more sense).
  2. Honda wants to appeal to younger buyers. It seems like this goes hand-in-hand with wanting sportier cars.  Ito points out that young people buy cars that are interesting and that perhaps Honda had gotten a little complacent in design. My solution: start offering sportier cars and the younger buyers will line up because, while young buyers want sporty and interesting, they also have high expectation of dependability (probably because most young people don’t even know how to check their oil anymore, but that’s a different topic entirely).
  3. Honda will use dual-clutch and continuously variable transmissions. “Honda maintains that CVTs are generally the better solution for all-out fuel economy, but recognizes that dual-clutch transmissions are much more fun to drive and sporty. Cars that are designed only with fuel economy in mind will continue to use CVTs, but premium and sportier vehicles will get dual-clutch setups.”
  4. The driver is still in charge. I loved this point by Ito. We are getting into a car-driving age where our cars can tell us a lot of stuff and can do a lot of stuff for us (ie parallel park, keep a consistent speed, etc), but Ito wants driver’s to see all these features as “assists” and not “controls” because, he said, the car needs to “respect
  5.  the driver’s will as much as possible.” Amen to that.
  6. Downsized turbocharged engines are on the way. Here’s what the article said: “Honda has already confirmed that the next Civic Type R will use a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine based on that of the Civic WTCC race car. After that, Honda will begin offering more downsized turbocharged engines in future products. The move comes a fair bit after most other automakers switched from V-6 engines to turbo four-cylinders, due to the fact that Honda is only just starting to tinker with direct fuel injection. First of all, the main key is that we are successful in developing direct injection engines,” said Ito. “By adopting turbocharging systems, we get can have an engine with better fuel efficiency as well as better performance.

Legislation Requiring Rear-Facing Cameras Costs Billions, is it Worth it?

 

Legislation Requiring Rear-Facing Cameras Costs Billions, is it Worth it?

Legislation requiring all cars and trucks sold in the U.S. to have rear-facing ‘backup’ cameras has been pushed back a second time. The legislation was originally signed in 2008 and now will not go into affect until the end of 2012.

And that could be a good thing.

While the rule is designed to prevent individuals from being run over by vehicles backing up, predominantly very young children and the elderly, it is also one of the most expensive pending legislations.

At an estimated cost of $2.7 billion for fleet of 16.6 million vehicles and approximately 292 deaths occurring each year from being backed over by a car or truck, that means each life saved is approximately worth $18.5 million.

Is that worth it?

Of course every life saved is worth it, but consider that the article also states that because of this legislation, the price of cars will go up $58 to $203. Can the auto industry, and the economy in general, afford that seeing as it is still on shaky ground?

Perhaps those billions of dollars could be spent on driver education or a safety campaign? The government even admits they need more information before implementing this rule (the reason the pushed it back):

“While the department has made progress toward a final rule to improve rearward visibility, it has decided that further study and data analysis — including of a wider range of vehicles and drivers — is important to ensure the most protective and efficient rule possible,” the agency said in its statement.

There are gut-wrenching and heartbreaking facts and stories of people, especially children, being harmed (50) and killed each week (two) by a vehicle that was backing up. If my child was saved by a rear-facing camera, I would absolutely say this billions dollar cost was worth it. But if I were going to be in the market for a car in the next year, I may not be so sure.

What do you think?
