Let’s face it. Minivans have always sucked.
But the 2014 Honda Odyssey sucks even more. That’s because the Odyssey now comes equipped with a built in vacuum cleaner to help tidy up the van. The vacuum can suck indefinitely when the engine’s running, or for up to eight minutes with the car turned off. To keep things simple the vacuum tool features a replaceable filter and a canister bag for easy disposable.
All hoses and accessories store inside a hidden compartment so nothing is visible when put away. Honda claims the unit is quieter than most shop vac systems but don’t throw away yours just yet; the Honda unit only sucks up dry debris.
The vacuum feature will be available on most high end models of the 2014 Honda Odyssey when it goes on sale this summer.
