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. 

See all of this, and many other secrets of the Honda Odyssey, in our latest Why Buy? video. And, if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you won’t miss the next Thursday debut.
