Honda Odyssey Profile

About the 2020 Honda Odyssey

Transform any family trip into an unforgettable journey with the impressive Honda Odyssey. It’s difficult to find another minivan which can compete with the capable versatility, excellent fuel economy, and sleek style of the Odyssey. Thanks to a standard 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6 engine paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission, you’ll enjoy up to 28 MPG highway fuel economy to get the most out of every drive**. While the Odyssey delivers spacious seating for up to 8 passengers, you’ll also find a host of clever seating configurations to transport cargo, passengers, or a blend of both. A standard one-motion 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat® gives you convenient access to the rear seats. You’ll be able to eliminate boredom with an optional Advanced Rear Entertainment System which boasts a large 10.2-inch screen, streaming apps, and Blu-ray™ player. Advanced Honda Sensing® safety technologies offer an added level of confidence while on the road.

What the Critics Say

Fleet-footed, efficient, and polished, the Odyssey’s powertrain is a sweetheart that requires zero compromises. The Odyssey changes direction crisply, and from behind the wheel it’s easy to forget you’re piloting a three-row van.” — Car and Driver

What sets the Odyssey apart is its smooth-operating V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission and its alert, stable handling that makes it feel more like driving a sedan than a truck or SUV. It’s not by coincidence that today’s Odyssey sits atop our Edmunds rankings for minivans.” — Edmunds
