Info translated from pages by a member on another forum:

The Odyssey L will come with a 2.4L I-4 mated to a CVT and make 172ps. The Odyssey Absolute will come with a 2.4L I-4 mated to a CVT and make 203ps. Absolute will have 4WD option mated to a 5-speed AT.

The 4th -gen JDM Odyssey will be 5mm shorter length-wise but have more interior volume.

THIS THING IS SWEET, but will need some toning down else people think it's an Acura.

They need to bring this with AWD.

As long as they don't give it a V6 and Powersliding doors, this shouldn't canabalize USDM Odyssey sales much. At this point, no family (who doesn't really need a monster van like the US Ody) would get one. They move on a shop elsewhere for a fuel efficient family vehicle. This vehicle would definitely fill their needs.

Honda could bump the base price of the Odyssey to just under $30,000 to make room for this. It would make for a good intermediate between the CR-V/Civic and the Odyssey/Pilot.

BRING IT HERE HONDA!!!

I'm really liking this new corportate look. I hope it slowly gets incorporated into all the new models. A Civic with this face would look SICK! By the way, the wheels on Ody Abs are HOT!

203PS or 206PS?

notice that the new car shares the same 2800mm wheelbase with the outgoing RB1/2

The new design sure makes the old one look aged, but I'm not sure I like it yet. I'm sure it will grow on me though. And my opinions will also probably be much different when I see it in person. I generally hate doing this, but the high rear bumper and rectangular horizontal rear lights remind me of the Mazda 8/Mazda MPV, though the two are quite different in height so I think its probably the image playing tricks on my eyes.

Also are you sure it'll be mated to a CVT? I thought the CVTs were only used with the 1.5l engines, with "7-speed" sport shift. Did the Odyssey not have a tiptronic 5AT with no paddles?

Current 2.4L Odys are already CVT's...
In Japan it goes more or less like this for Honda.
- Cars on the cheap side for their segment get 4 or 5 AT's. (Mini-cars, StepWGN, Civic, R18 Stream, etc.)
- AWD versions get 4 or 5 AT's (all).
- Cars on the expensive side for their segment without a V6 get CVT (Fit, Ody, R20 Stream).
- V6 cars get 5AT (Inspire, Legend, Elysion).

only the JDM Type-L/M RB1 had the CVT. The Absolute had the 5-speed

S.E.Asia bound RB1s (and also Australian cars, IIRC) had the normal 5-speed automatic.

Only the JDM Type-L/M came with the CVT with torque converter.

The Absolute came with the 5-speed,

Official export models also came with the 5-speed automatic.
