2016 Honda Odyssey: The Best of Minivans

Published on April 13 2016

A good minivan must be able to do everything. It must transport families to school and adults to work every day and also take on every other task in between -- all while offering maximum comfort and safety. On top of that, technology and great performance have to be present in order to please many types of drivers and passengers. The 2016 Honda Odyssey does all this, and much more. For 2016, this do-it-all minivan comes in seven greatly equipped trims: the LX, SE, EX, EX-RES, EX-L RES, EX-L NAVI and TOURING.

The Minivan -- Reinvented from the Inside Out

The world’s best minivan comes with a top-of-the-line engine under its hood. The 3.5-litre, 24-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC V6 engine outputs 250 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, and is both powerful and efficient. Moreover, it is equipped with advanced technological features, such as an Active Control Engine Mount (ACM) system, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Drive-by-Wire Throttle System, and Variable Cylinder Management (VCM). The engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control that channels the power to the front wheels. Fuel consumption wise, the efficient Odyssey requires only 12.3 l/100 km city and 8.5 l/100 km highway for a combined fuel consumption of only 10.6 l/100km.

Combining style and versatility, the Odyssey's exterior is nothing less than gorgeous. Every variant of the 2016 edition comes with an integrated glass antenna, intermittent rear window wiper/washer, as well as superb LED taillight bars. Higher trims like the EX-L RES, EX-L NAVI and TOURING come fully equipped with useful equipment, including the body-coloured parking sensors (front/rear) and the one-touch power moon roof with tilt feature for sunny drives. Opting for the top of the line TOURING version will also add auto-levelling High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, fog lights, and side mirrors with integrated turn indicators for added style and functionality.

Drive First-Class in the Odyssey

Inside, the Odyssey offers more than any other minivan in its segment. Comfort, technology and safety fill up the cabin to ensure every trip is enjoyable. For example, every version of the Odyssey is equipped with the One-Motion 60/40 Split 3rd-Row Magic Seat and the wide-mode adjustable 2nd-row seats with armrests and walk-in feature. Also, every trim above the base LX trim can seat up to 8 passengers (the LX variant can seat 7). LX and EX trims get a driver's seat with 8-way power adjustment, while all the other trims get a very confortable driver's seat with 10-way power adjustment, including power lumbar support. Several trims come with leather-trimmed seating surfaces and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and all are offered with the 8" i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display) TFT display, a practical MP3/auxiliary input jack and many more technological features.
