2016 Honda Odyssey Overview
While a three-row SUV can also accommodate you and everyone else, the third-row seat is typically cramped, and luggage space is modest when it’s deployed. The Odyssey’s vast cabin, in contrast, ensures that both second- and third-row passengers will be comfortable, even if they’re adults. The second row is highly configurable, too, particularly on the EX trim and above — you can spread the seats apart to create more shoulder room or slide them around to open up more third-row space. Even with the third row in use, there are a useful 38.4 cubic feet of space in the rear to store luggage, strollers or whatever else you’ve got.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The base seven-passenger LX model is well-equipped with 17-inch steel wheels, rear privacy glass, a rear spoiler, manual two-zone air-conditioning, active noise cancellation, an eight-way power driver seat, a four-way power front passenger seat, a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, full power accessories, cruise control, an 8-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rearview camera and a seven-speaker audio system with a CD player, Pandora compatibility, an auxiliary audio input jack and a USB port.
2016 Honda Odyssey Driving Impression/Review
2016 Honda Odyssey is technically down a few horsepower compared to rivals like the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona, these vans perform similarly in both our acceleration tests and real-world driving situations. The Odyssey’s V6 has more than enough juice to merge confidently on the freeway or overtake slower cars on the open road. Class-leading steering precision and confidence-inspiring handling make the Odyssey feel smaller and more carlike than it actually is. Thanks to active noise-cancelling technology, wind and road noise are held to pleasantly low levels, a difficult feat for what is essentially a big box on wheels.
