Overview

The Honda Odyssey is the kind of minivan you always hoped you’d be able to drive. It holds seven or eight people, depending on seat configuration, tows up to 3,500 pounds, and boasts almost 40 cubic feet of storage behind the third row. There’s plenty of room for storage up front, too, with a large removable center console that can fit a bag and several water bottles. For trips to Ikea or cross-country moves, the rear seats fold seamlessly into the floor to maximize cargo space. The Odyssey runs a V-6 engine with either a five- or six-speed automatic transmission. It has Honda technology that allows some cylinders to shut off when not in use, helping it achieve a class-high 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Perhaps best of all is an available giant rear video monitor with a split-screen to avoid tantrums if your brood can’t agree on a movie. The Odyssey’s price is high, its design is far from sexy, and it can be a little slow to accelerate and decelerate, but otherwise it is just about everything you could ask for in a minivan.
