Looking for One of the Market’s Best Minivans? 2016 Honda Odyssey Stands Out from the Competition

  • 2016 Honda Odyssey

    Are you on the hunt for a minivan that has all the bells and whistles? Among the market’s very best minivans, the 2016 Honda Odyssey shines brightly among its competitors, offering a variety of amenities that popular rivals don’t.

    The Odyssey has become a favorite among consumers for many very good reasons. Ready to find out why?

Interior Space

One asset minivan drivers enjoy is impressive roominess, with plenty of room for family members and cargo alike.

When it comes to passenger space, the impressive Odyssey provides seating for seven occupants in the base model and seating for eight passengers in the other five trim levels.

Your family members and comrades will further get up to 172.6 cubic feet of passenger space to spread out and get comfy in.

When you need to pack in cargo—whether for a trip across the country or just a jaunt across town—the outstanding Odyssey offers 148.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats lowered. When you need a mix of seating and cargo space, the Odyssey provides an impressive 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room with all the seats upright and 93.1 cubic feet of cargo volume with just the third-row seat lowered.

Standard Features

Another huge plus of driving an Odyssey is its plentiful array of standard amenities.

Onboard the Odyssey, drivers and passengers will enjoy standard features across all trim levels that include:

  • Remote entry system
  • Rearview camera with guidelines
  • i-MID with 8-inch high-resolution screen
  • One-Motion 60/40-split 3rd Row Magic Seat

  • Rear privacy glass
  • Expanded view driver’s side mirror
  • Auto up/down power front windows

The Odyssey also offers various cutting-edge standard safety features, including vehicle stability assist with traction control, brake assist, a tire pressure monitoring system, and daytime running lights.
