In Japan, Honda is generating hype for the impending release of the redesigned 2009 Honda Odyssey minivan with teaser photos of the slick new ride. In addition to a 2010 Mustang-ish teaser, Honda has also launched a website dedicated entirely to the new Odyssey’s debut. Questionable design aesthetics aside [it’s a minivan, there isn’t a whole lot of room to be creative with the overall layout], the dinosaur-purple exterior color makes us feel extremely uncomfortable. As matter of fact any van attempting to camouflage itself as trendy triggers some sort of internal alarm with us. It’s almost like we nervously suspect either the ATF or Gary Glitter to be involved somewhere down the line…

Feelings of foreboding ill aside, it’s actually mildly disappointing that the new JDM Honda Odyssey won’t be making it to the U.S. Despite it’s status as the vehicle of choice amongst soccer moms, the Odyssey’s 244-hp V6 is startlingly responsive when you open it up on the highway. In fact the last time we test drove the Odyssey, we were surprised to find that it actually handled better then some mid-size performance sedans – and that was back in 2006, we can only imagine what it’s capable of now.
