Ask yourself this: do you want to be the parent who drives the dreaded, outdated minivan? (is that ôwood panelling?!) or do you want to be the parent who drives the best and most alluring minivan on the market? Let’s just say (and hope) that you chose question number two. If so, the 2016 Honda Odyssey is for you. The Honda Odyssey has been one of the best minivans on the market for some time - and it continues its reign right into the 2016 lineup year. So what makes the Odyssey so great? Continue reading to find out.
Real space. Sedans can claim to be roomy. SUVs can claim to be spacious. But, is there really any question that a minivan would outmeasure both of these vehicles in terms of space? The Odyssey can hold the average load of passengers and cargo - and then some! It is designed with three rows that ensure enough space and comfort for those in front all the way to those in the way back. The third row, while often a serious downfall for many SUVs because it can only truly fit small children, the Odyssey does the minivan title right with a third row that’s adult friendly.
Cargo space is a key strength for the Odyssey. There’s a generous 38.4 cubic feet of space behind the third row, and when this row is stowed this measurement jumps to 93.1 cubes. Remove second-row seats for an explosive measurement of 148.5 cubic feet.
Practicality in features. Honda equipped the 2016 Odyssey with many clever features that show practicality is also one of its key strengths. It has a flip-up trash bag holder that’s built into a removable center console so trash is never an issue no matter how many passengers are on board, and there is also a cooling compartment that makes traveling needs easier than ever because you won’t need to waste space toting along a cooler. All electronics, like touchscreens and controls, are truly user-friendly no matter how tech savvy you or your passengers are. To please kids (okay, adults too), the Odyssey’s top Touring Elite trim features a rear-seat entertainment system that can play two different sources at once. This trim also comes equipped with a built-in vacuum with 10-foot hose so no crumbs are left unfound.
Reliability in safety. A lot of passengers calls for a necessary increase in safety. The Odyssey adequately supplies it with reliable safety equipment and features, as well as top scores in crash testing. Safety features are definitely worth noting with content like a multi-angle rearview camera, Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot camera system, and forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems.
