Although the Odyssey's design dated from 1999, it was still a very good minivan and an excellent value. It showed improvements from our previous test, with quicker acceleration and a more comfortable ride. The 2003 Odyssey handles with agility and has a roomy interior. It's powertrain is smooth and strong. The Honda reflects impeccable attention to detail and has demonstrated consistently high resale value. The folding third-row seat is handy, and there is reasonable cargo space, even when the third row is deployed.
