A car I like, but I'm not sure why.

Mid-2000s Asia-Pacific market Honda Odysseys. Not quite a minivan, not quite an MPV, not quite a wagon. Kinda a mix of everything. They’re not the most exciting to drive by a long shot, but they have aged remarkably well. And they’re legal in Canada now, a fact I didn’t realise until I saw one about a week ago.

Perhaps I’ve just gone crazy.

And the interiors are incredibly smart as well. Far more “premium” compared to the NA Odyssey. Surprised Honda didn’t slap an Acura badge on it like they did with the Accord Euro and international Civic sedan* and compete with the R-Class. They would’ve sold at least 10. Probably no more than 10 though.

*Yes, I’m aware the international Civic sedan was actually based on the CSX rather than the other way around.
