Honda sold 56,611 units of the Odyssey in the first seven months of the year or 6.5 percent less than in the January – July 2018 interval. In a bid to boost sales, the minivan is entering the 2020 model year with an optional 25th anniversary accessory package to mark a quarter of a century since the Odyssey’s 1994 launch in North America.

Priced at $1,500 or $2,800 if you go for the exclusive dealer-installed 19-inch wheels, the pack bundles a chrome roof rack and body side moldings, while the chrome rear bumper protector and the special key fob are also part of the deal. To sweeten the pot, Honda will add illuminated sill plates with the anniversary logo, along with special badges adorning the front fenders and the tailgate.

Perhaps more important is the company’s decision to make the 10-speed automatic transmission standard across the range, which is the same we can say about the Idle Stop system. The latter cuts fuel consumption by automatically shutting off the engine after the Odyssey comes to a stop for at least two seconds. Once the driver releases the brake pedal, the engine starts again.

Speaking of the engine, all versions of the Alabama-built minivan are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet (355 Newton-meters) of torque on tap.

Pricing kicks off at $31,785 (including $1,095 destination charge) for the base 2020 Honda Odyssey LX and rises to $48,415 for the range-topping Elite trim. Even the base model has automatic climate control, multi-angle rearview camera, push-button start, and two USB ports. Go for the flagship trim and you get niceties like LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, ventilated front seats, wireless smartphone charging, power-folding mirrors, a better sound system, power tailgate, automatic windscreen wipers, tri-zone climate control, and a heated steering wheel.

To mark the Odyssey’s transition to the 2020 model year, Honda has dropped an unusually large photo gallery with the fifth generation of its people mover.

The Honda Odyssey has been the most popular minivan with individual American car buyers since 2010, with cumulative U.S. sales exceeding 2.7 million units since its launch in 1995. Over five generations, Odyssey has set the standard for family-friendly features, space and sporty driving performance in a minivan. Odyssey was also the first to introduce minivan staples such as third-row seats that fold into the floor, the first built-in vacuum cleaner, the HondaVac, and the first in-cabin child monitoring system, Cabin Watch®.

The 25th Anniversary accessory package celebrates Odyssey's quarter-century milestone with a chrome roof rack, body side moldings, lower door garnish, chrome rear bumper protector; illuminated sill plates with the 25th Anniversary logo; and special 25th Anniversary badges on the front fenders and tailgate, as well as a 25th anniversary key fob. Optionally available on the dealer-installed package are 19-inch wheels unique to the package.

Available in LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims, all 2020 Honda Odysseys now come standard with Idle Stop and a 10-speed automatic transmission mated to the 280 horsepower, 3.5 liter i-VTEC™ V6 engine. Odyssey LX comes standard with push button start, two USB ports, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, and automatic climate control.

Odyssey EX adds the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, blind spot information, Honda's Magic Slide 2nd-row seats with seating for eight, power sliding doors, and tri-zone automatic climate control with rear controls. EX-L trims add leather, one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature, power tailgate, and an additional three USB ports for a total of four, with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System and a rear entertainment system available as well.

Touring and Elite trims get LED headlamps with auto on/off and WiperLink, HondaLink® with 4G LTE WiFi mobile hotspot capability (with subscription), front and rear parking sensors, HondaVac, CabinWatch cabin monitor, and handsfree-access power tailgate. Elite adds a heated steering wheel and rain-sensing wipers, wireless phone charging, power folding mirrors, ventilated front seats, and an upgraded premium audio system.
