Honda has unveiled the refreshed 2014 Odyssey before the start of the New York Auto Show. The big news about the Odyssey is the introduction of an onboard vacuum system.

Standard on the the Odyssey Touring Elite trim, the HondaVac is comprised of an electric motor, replaceable filter, canister bag, and vacuum attachments that are located in the rear cargo bulkhead. The system, developed jointly with ShopVac, can also run up to eight minutes when the Odyssey is turned off.

Aside from the new vacuum, the 2014 Odyssey has some minor changes. Outside, there is a new aluminum hood and fenders to pair with the revised front fascia and darker headlights. Honda has also made structural changes to make the vehicle safer in case of an accident. Stepping inside, there is a revised center stack, new trim pieces, push-button start, and HondaLink's cloud-based infotainment options.

The 2014 Odyssey arrives at dealers this summer.

WOW :puke:

From the front it looks like a car on Steroids, the side and back still has that traditional minivan look, the front dash is a cut up mess and over all unless you love mini vans, I see nothing pleasing here. The only COOL Feature is the built in Vacuum. Course wonder how often that will break and be asked to be fixed under warranty.

Still a market for these beasts, but I will pass.

As someone who cleans his cars regularly, that vacuum idea is awesome.

Van looks fine to me...as about as good as a van can get, anyways...
