Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, the exclusive distributor of Honda
vehicles in the UAE, has launched a customized version of its popular family car, the Odyssey
Touring, which has been fitted with a specially adapted and electronically operated seat, making
access to the vehicle easier for infirm customers and those who require wheelchair access.
For ease of access, the Turny Orbit seat, including armrests and foot support, moves seamlessly
to the outside of the Odyssey through the side electric sliding door, lowering itself to the required
height for the passenger to comfortably embark. Once the passenger is safely strapped in, the seat
can then be moved back inside the vehicle, before coming to its final resting place in the middle
row, next to a full-sized Captain’s chair, whilst not encroaching in the leg space of the third row of
seats. The entire process is made possible by means of a hand-held remote-control panel. The
chair is fitted to the middle row of the Odyssey with further adaptations available for the front
passenger seat and even for the driver’s seat.
The Honda Odyssey has been a class-leading minivan for over 20 years and with a whole host of
comfort and convenience features, its spacious, dynamic and versatile offerings make it an ideal
car for modern families. It sets the standard for family vehicles by focusing on features and
capabilities required by families with children. Its twin electric sliding doors make it perfectly
accessible for those using the wheelchair lift.
Rhett Maxwell, Honda UAE’s General Manager at Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, said,
“The Honda Odyssey has always been recognized as class leading, versatile and practical people
mover and we are proud to be taking this to the next level with this unique offering g. Al-Futtaim
prides itself on its customer-centric approach and we are committed to finding new ways to get
closer to our customers to be able to deliver on our brand promise of enriching every day. Our aim

relatives and thereby helping them to get out more whilst improving their quality of life.”
The vehicle has been customized in conjunction with Al-Futtaim Auto Centers Special Vehicle
Division (SVD) and will be available to customers starting from AED 228,199.
