The Odyssey is the benchmark for all other minivans. Not only does it offer decent performance, more car-like driving, and fold-flat rear seats, it also brought the Honda credibility and residual values to the minivan segment. Although models by Toyota, Nissan and Chrysler have applied pressure, Odyssey is still the one to beat. Three basic trim levels are offered: LX, EX, and Touring. All three are powered by a V6 coupled to a 5-speed automatic. A long list of features such as power-operated windows in the side doors, a floor-storage system, an improved 3rd-row seat system, a 9-inch DVD entertainment system, an updated navigation system and an available moonroof help the Odyssey maintain its status.

What Changed:

The rear entertainment system is now offered on EX models. The PAX wheel/tire option has been dropped from the Touring model.
