New York auto show: 5 cars of the future

2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite
2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite

Honda introduced the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite at the 2013 New York International Auto Show as the new "ultimate family vehicle." The redesigned minivan features a long list of standard technology such as keyless smart entry where the car automatically unlocks when the key fob is in close proximity without pushing any buttons, push-button start, HD Radio, text messaging capability, and HondaLink, which allows an owner to connect his or her smartphone to the car to play custom radio stations, check out restaurant reviews and receive news updates via social media.

One of the most unique standard features of the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is the built-in HondaVAC, a powerful Shop-Vac vacuum integrated into the rear cargo bulkhead to allow for easy cleanups anywhere in the vehicle. The Odyssey Touring Elite also includes structural upgrades that Honda expects will allow it to get top scores in the new small-overlap frontal crash test to make it a top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

It goes on sale in summer 2013.
