Honda Odyssey 2018 minivan Trim Shown: 2018 EX-L minivan FWD Automatic
  • Road Test

  • Owner Satisfaction
The all-new fifth-generation Odyssey packs in more refinement, quietness, fuel economy, and an improved infotainment system. Its interior flexibility has improved, too, with the ability to slide the second-row outboard seats sideways. Several connectivity and storage features keep the entire family happy. The 280 hp 3.5-liter V6 engine supplies ample power and is teamed with a fairly unobtrusive nine-speed automatic transmission. The top trims, Touring and Elite, get a slicker 10-speed transmission. The engine is smooth, punchy, and quiet, but there is no all-wheel-drive option. The ride is very comfortable, the cabin is quiet, and handling is sound. However, the push-button gear selector is a nuisance to use when parking. An optional 8-inch infotainment touch screen is easier to use than the previous offering, but it can still be distracting.

2011 Redesign Year
Honda Odyssey 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 EX-L w/Navi
Redesigned for 2011, this generation of the Honda Odyssey did very well in our road tests, with comfortable seating and a good ride. Handling is responsive, but the steering wasn't as precise as in previous Odysseys. The cabin is relatively quiet, though some road noise persists. Eight occupants fit easily in the roomy, versatile interior. The refined 248-hp V6 and five-speed automatic powertrain return 19 mpg overall. Top-trim versions got a six-speed automatic that became standard for 2014; this version returns 21 mpg. That 2014 freshening also included a reinforced front structure for better crashworthiness, the addition of available forward-collision warning, and an overly complicated touchscreen infotainment system on higher trims. Blind spot monitoring was only available on the top Elite trim; other versions got Honda's LaneWatch right blind spot camera system, which is more distracting and less useful. A built-in vacuum cleaner comes on select trims.

2005 Redesign Year
Honda Odyssey 2010 Trim Shown: 2010 EXL
Long one of our top-scoring minivans, the Odyssey was redesigned in 2005, bringing improved interior flexibility. Safety increased significantly with the addition of standard curtain airbags and stability control. Sharp and precise steering makes the Odyssey surprisingly fun to drive for a big box on wheels. Bumps are well absorbed by the suspension, providing a comfortable ride, but interior noise levels are rather high. The 3.5-liter V6 and five-speed automatic delivers plenty of power and 19 mpg overall. A telescoping steering wheel adjustment arrived for 2007; high-trim models have a backup camera and a power liftgate in later years. An underfloor storage compartment holds small items or can stow the removable center second-row seat. Eight passengers fit in the roomy interior, and the third row seat drops into the floor for more storage and a flat load floor. Note that the competing Toyota Sienna isn't as enjoyable to drive, but is quieter and offers optional all-wheel-drive.

Honda Odyssey 2004 Trim Shown: 2004 Passenger Van
The original Odyssey, with four swing-out doors instead of sliders, and its overworked four-cylinder engine soldiered until 998. The third-row bench seat cleverly folds and stows flush with the floor. The Odyssey was reinvented as a large traditional minivan for 1999, with sliding doors and a smooth 3.5-liter V6. This Odyssey is big and spacious, yet doesn't feel bulky. It has good handling, comfortable seating, and good acceleration. Traction control became standard for 2001. Watch out for problems with the five-speed automatic transmission in 2000-2004 model years.
