Yep, it's the new Honda Odyssey — they'll sell them by the boatload, and current owners will line up when their respective leases run out. A V-6 is the only engine, and it offers up to to 28 mpg in the "Touring Elite" model, which is code for "the one hardcore yuppie moms will buy." Interior amenities include a copy of the Sienna's features list, right down to the double-wide, flip-down LCD screen in the back. It does offer an HDMI port, though, so you can watch super high-def Spongebob on your small HD screen.
