All-New Pilot and Odyssey Launched in the Philippines
MANILA (June 6, 2012) – Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda’s automobile production and sales subsidiary in the Philippines, today launched both the all-new Pilot and Odyssey. Following the launch of the new City last January, the all-new Civic and Jazz Special Edition in February, and the all-new CR-V in April, the all-new Pilot and Odyssey not only strengthen Honda’s return to the Philippine automotive market, but also expands its model line-up.

Since the introduction of the Pilot and Odyssey in the United States, each model has received numerous awards and recognitions from various bodies and institutions due to its outstanding roominess, versatility, efficiency, and safety. Both models have unit-body construction and independent suspension that provide car-like driving feel and ride comfort.

The all-new Pilot was developed with the concept of “Intelligent Family Adventure”. Understanding that Honda customers are smart and make intelligent decisions, the Pilot reflects this intelligence with leading engine technology, safety for everyone, and concern for the environment. In addition, to provide each member of the family with equal and enjoyable experience, the interior of the Pilot is equipped with various amenities and flexible cargo configuration to enhance the travelling experience, Lastly, the sense of adventure can be seen with the bold design of the Pilot and its good on-road and off-road handling.

For the all-new Odyssey, this model was developed with the concept of “Ultimate Family Vehicle”, combining chic new styling, class-leading performance, advance family safety, and ultimate utility. The exterior of the Odyssey has a modern and sophisticated styling that features the “lightning bolt” side profile that gives it a distinctive identity against competitors with indistinguishable design.
Excellent engine performance and ride comfort enhances any family trip, while the interior of the Odyssey gives high consideration to occupant safety and convenience with its high level of safety features and amenities. Furthermore, cargo space configurability is improved with the 3rd row Magic Seats that allows it to be tucked away completely or partially.

Philippine customers truly enjoy spending time with their families. One can observe families going out together on weekends to dine out after mass or to relax in an out-of-town getaway. The Odyssey and Pilot makes travelling together more enjoyable with its comfortable space and versatile interior configuration. The Odyssey has a low ground clearance that enables 2nd and 3rd row passengers, especially the elderly, to easily get in and out of the vehicle. At the side, the power sliding doors at both sides of the vehicle allow effortless opening and closing. At the rear, the power tailgate allows easy closing. Both the power sliding doors and tailgate have anti-pinch function, which prevents a person from being accidentally caught when closing. The Pilot, on the other hand, provides both good on-road and off-road capabilities with its four-wheel drive function while still providing a comfortable and enjoyable ride for its occupants.
