    Eight-passenger minivan is unbeatable people and cargo hauler

      Imagine the perfect hauler for the typical hockey playing and weekend camping family. Shuttling a load of kids to soccer, taxiing the grandparents for Sunday dinner and picking up that new 60-inch big screen T.V. could easily be on the week’s agenda.

      The perfect vehicle would be large, easy to get in and out of, and fuel efficient. Let’s also require our perfect vehicle to drive like a car, haul like a truck, and offer luxurious accommodations. We also want top-flight entertainment technologies for those long road trips, and protected with a raft of safety technologies for good measure. That pretty well sums up the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring minivan.

      It’s too bad the minivan has gotten such a bad reputation in recent years. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked for advice on a new vehicle. Typically, the request goes, “I want a practical, family vehicle that can haul lots of stuff,” and then add, “but absolutely not a minivan.”

      It’s unfortunate the minivan has been stereotyped as a functional but boring vehicle relegated to function-before-style soccer moms. And as we know, calling a woman a “soccer mom” is an unforgivable insult, worse, apparently, than saying her children are spoiled and have no manners.

      For 2014, Honda’s Odyssey minivan gets some nice tweaks. Most importantly, the six-speed transmission (previously available only in the top model) is now standard across the board. You’ll have a hard time picking out the minor styling changes, but under the paint, the steel hood and front fenders have been swapped out for lighter weight aluminum. And for all you neat freaks, an on-board vacuum is fitted to the driver’s side rear cargo hold, which Honda claims is the “world’s first in-car vacuum system.” (That may be, but it’s still not as cool as the “standard” umbrella built into the driver’s door of some Rolls Royces.)

      For absolute practicality, minivans like our 2014 Honda Odyssey beat the ever popular SUV hands down. The minivan’s floor and seats are placed lower than the taller SUVs, and the wide, power operated sliding side doors allow easier entry and exit for passengers (especially children, the elderly or those who have mobility issues.) The sliding side doors are better in tight parking spaces at the supermarket, and its high roof allows much bulkier cargo – like mountain bikes or flat packs of new furniture.

      Our 2014 Honda Odyssey tester was a top of the line Touring version, loaded with just about every luxury and convenience an active family could want: a 16.2-inch DVD screen for the second row, a terrific sounding 650-watt 12-speaker audio system, panoramic sunroof, navigation system, blind spot system, and rear view camera to name a few items. Forward collision warning and lane departure warning are useful safety technologies that are standard on the Touring model.

      Driving the Odyssey is easy, especially given its large size. About the same length as a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV and Ford Flex, sight lines are good in all directions good and Honda’s blind spot warning system works well. The rear view camera (standard on all models) has a bright, large, display and combined with its parking warning system, help the driver easily maneuver this big hauler in tight spaces.

      Compared to the raft of SUVs we’ve driven recently, I prefer the Odyssey to the truck-like SUVs for daily driving. Keyless entry and pushbutton start and remote operated power sliding side doors are welcome conveniences when your arms are loaded with groceries for letting passengers into the second and third rows.

      The third row is easy to access and legroom is surprisingly good. There’s a power tailgate and stowing the split third row requires pulling one strap (per side), and the seat folds into the floor giving a flat cargo deck.

      Honda’s 3.5-litre V6 is a good workhorse engine. It’s smooth, and while acceleration from a stop is good, there’s a lot of mass to move. In typical Honda fashion, the 248 horsepower V6 comes alive in the mid-range (torque peaks at 4800 rpm), making the minivan feel more alive once the engine picks up some revs. Honda has chosen to employ variable cylinder management, a technology that boosts fuel economy by deactivating some cylinders under low load conditions. Official fuel economy rating shows the 3.5-litre Odyssey beats its V6 minivan competitors (Dodge Grand Caravan, Kia Sedona, Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna) with a decent 10.9 city and 7.1 highway L/100 km rating.

      While driving the big Odyssey is easy and feels very car-like, we’d ask for more steering feel. And while this large vehicle is sure-footed and predictable, there’s less of that ‘sporty’ DNA we love in other Honda family members.

      For the driver, the Odyssey provides excellent ergonomics. The driver’s seat has a height-adjustable inboard armrest, which nicely supports the elbows for comfortable seating especially during long stints behind the wheel. Instruments are large and clear, and Honda provides a nice ceiling mounted drop down convex mirror so front passengers (likely mom and dad) can keep an eye on little Ashlynn while she draws a mustache on her sleeping brother. Between the front seats is a massive centre console with a large, flat surface, big enough for my camera bag with room to spare.

      We tested the Odyssey Touring in extreme cold. With morning temperatures in the -28 C range, the big Honda revealed a couple of weaknesses. With such a large volume of space, the Odyssey takes time to heat the interior, and the heated seats were sluggish in warming our posteriors. In this extreme cold, we also found the Odyssey’s suspension to be noisier than we had expected, banging loudly over ice ruts and potholes.

      Still, we like the 2014 Honda Odyssey a lot. It’s a superb family hauler, and will be especially attractive to small business operators who need a vehicle to perform double duty for work and family. While our ‘loaded’ test unit seems pricey, Honda offers a staggering seven models starting at $29,990, so there should be a model to fit every budget. Highly recommended.

    Great value the hallmark of this efficient and competent sedan
    [​IMG]
    By Russell Purcell
    Originally published: February 13, 2014
    • Honda Accord. The venerable mid-sized sedan has been a top seller for the Japanese automotive giant since its introduction to the North American market in the mid-1970s.

      Now in its ninth generation, the Accord is available in both coupe and sedan form, but it is the latter that has captured the interest of Canadian buyers due to the practicality of four doors and a spacious passenger cabin.

      There are three powertrains to choose from on the Accord menu including a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing 185 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque, a 3.5L V6 packing 278 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, and a new hybrid offering that integrates a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine supported by a 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor capable of generating 196 hp and 226 lb.-ft. of torque.

      [​IMG]

      Honda’s Electronic-Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) is the only transmission option available in the Accord Hybrid, but it is one of the best of the species. I found that it performed very efficiently during my test period, but more importantly, very quietly.

      Operation of the transmission is a simple affair, as there are no shift paddles to play with and the console mounted gear lever is as basic as they come. Slipping the transmission into Drive and stepping on the gas pedal will get you underway much like in a traditional automobile, but the Accord Hybrid has been engineered to maintain its efficiency by switching between three driving modes: EV drive, Engine drive and Hybrid drive.

      When the car is operating in EV drive mode, the gasoline engine is hibernating and the car’s power is being sourced from the stored reserves of the lithium-ion battery pack. This occurs when starting from a stop, during light cruising and acceleration, and when braking.

      [​IMG]
      A variety of information screens allow the driver to monitor the hybrid system’s efficiency during vehicle operation.
      Russell Purcell, Driving

      Engine drive mode utilizes the Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine to maintain momentum when the vehicle is travelling at medium and higher speeds.

      Hybrid drive makes full use of both the gas engine and the electric motor and is employed during periods of hard acceleration and to promote efficient driving whilst operating in stop and go traffic.

      Acceleration is impressive as hybrid platforms allow for instantaneous torque when the electric motor kicks in. Acceleration from a standstill to 100 kilometres per hour can be executed in about 7.5 seconds.

      Handling is equally impressive, as the Accord Hybrid features an independent multi-link rear suspension and an independent strut design up front. This potent combination has been carefully engineered to absorb vibration, isolate road noise, and maximize vehicle control.

      [​IMG]

      The ride was so smooth that it felt like I was riding in a much larger, and much more expensive, automobile. When the road became twisty the precision of the steering and suspension systems inspired confidence in my driving, and the car exhibited very little body roll or bounce.

      The car is equipped with a number of graphics and gauges to help you monitor fuel efficiency on the fly including a slick system the company calls Eco Assist. This innovative system uses a set of green and white bars in the instrument cluster to help you track how efficiently you’re driving. Green is good. An active car icon is also displayed to help the driver better visualize what effect a heavy foot has on the car’s fuel efficiency.

      Despite these monitors, and the ability to operate in EV mode at lower speeds, I never managed to approach the ultra efficiency ratings Honda claims for the car in its literature.

      The Accord Hybrid will apparently sip regular fuel at a combined rate of 3.8 L/100km which represents an impressive 74 mpg. However, the best I could get was 5.5 L/100km (51.3 mpg).

      I will admit that I do have a lead foot, so I am sure with a little effort I could correct my driving style to better suit the car’s hybrid system and take advantage of its true potential.

      The Honda Accord Hybrid is roomy enough for five adults in a pinch, but four will be very comfortable. There are many places to stow small items in the passenger cabin, but the trunk’s capacity is reduced by the presence of the hybrid system’s lithium-ion battery pack. Unfortunately this configuration further limits cargo carrying options as battery placement prevents the rear seatbacks from folding.

      The level of fit and finish is of a high enough standard to put many more premium priced automobiles to shame. This is especially true if you pony up for the fully loaded Touring model which features a full complement of technologic goodies and a host of innovative safety features.

      The Accord Hybrid Touring comes with a premium audio system and a dash-mounted display which features HondaLink, the company’s infotainment suite which connects to the driver’s smartphone to deliver hands-free access to cloud-based media, social networks, emails, text messages and communications.

      Safety innovations include LaneWatch blind spot display, a multi-angle rear-view camera, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning systems.

      Advanced LED projector beam headlights are supported by stylish LED daytime running lights, while extra bright LED tail lights grace the rear of the car. Hybrid models also sport a unique wheel design, deck lid spoiler, and a blue-accented grille.

      The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid represents a tremendous value when you look at how Honda has selected to package the car, especially when you compare it to the other hybrid offerings in the marketplace.

      You get all the goodness that made the Honda Accord AJAC’s 2013 Canadian Car of the Year, but you also get to reduce fuel costs and the size of your carbon footprint.
