We see how Honda’s venerable hauler stacks up near the end of its generational run.
– Detroit, Michigan
The Honda Odyssey has been a mainstay of the American minivan scene for decades, and a sales leader even now, at the end of the current generation’s run. After a week of testing the old girl, it’s still easy to see why.
The Odyssey still offers driving dynamics that are at or near the top of the class, along with a strong powertrain that delivers remarkable fuel economy, considering its age. And the functionality of the interior makes it a magic place to haul people and things. Easy configurability – one-touch stowing seats and a removable second row – makes the Honda malleable to the needs of many kinds of families. Oh, and the fact that you can order it up with a powerful vacuum cleaner onboard may not be utterly essential, but the carpets will thank you.
