Getting Familiar with the 2016 Honda Odyssey

Honda Odyssey

In the minivan segment, the Honda Odyssey is always a top pick among car buyers as the minivan is ideal for family life. The 2016 Odyssey has a distinctive style that allows the minivan to separate itself from its competitors. It also has a ton of engine power and more technology features than any minivan out there today. For those residing in South Hills, PA looking for the perfect family vessel, visit Washington Honda who offers their vehicles with regular promos and discounts.


The 2016 Honda Odyssey is one of the best family minivans in the segment this year as it has everything. It has the power to transport up to 7 passengers with a powerful 3.5 liter V6 engine that allows maximum speeds of 248 horsepower with 250 pound feet of torque. The car’s engine also has modifications in its 6-speed automatic transmission and variable valve timing to save a lot of fuel consumption.


While most minivans have boring exteriors, the 2016 Honda Odyssey is the exact opposite as the vehicle is sleek and sporty. It has a wide front end bumper that features projector beam halogen headlights and automatic fog lights. Moving to each side of the minivan, the Odyssey sports 17” alloy wheels and body colored side mirrors that mesh well aesthetically. The sides of the vehicle also include power sliding doors that automatically open with a click of the vehicle’s key fob. Finally, behind the Odyssey is a power automatic tailgate with LED brake lights. In addition, the power tailgate utilizes remote keyless entry that also controls the van’s automatic sliding doors.

As the Odyssey is perfect for the entire family, it has a cabin that can fit up to 7 passengers. The interior of the minivan is separated into 3 rows with 3 rows of seats. These seats are leather stitched and even offer power and manual adjustment features as well as lumbar support to provide more comfort to passengers.


Another reason why the 2016 Honda Odyssey is ideal for the entire family is due to its tech features that provide functionality and entertainment. Outside, the Odyssey has a remote keyless entry system that simultaneously locks/unlocks all car doors and tailgate release automatically. It also has a backup camera located in its rear that transmits high-quality video feed to the HondaLink entertainment console inside. Other exterior tech features worth mentioning are:

  • Backup Sensors - The rear bumper of the vehicle has been accessorized with multiple sensors that chime in warning sounds as the vehicle is on reverse. When the vehicle backs up too close to another vehicle or object, these sensors will chime in louder warning sounds.     
  • Power-heated Side Mirrors - Prevent smog accumulation when driving under colder temperatures.
  • Forward Collision Warning - Aside from having sensors in its rear, the Odyssey also contains front-bumper sensors that alert drivers when their vehicle approaches another vehicle in dangerous proximities.

The Odyssey’s interior also consists of many amazing tech features such as:

  • HondaLink Audio System
  • Front and Rear LCD Screens
  • Surround Sound Speakers
  • Navigation
  • Satellite Radio 
  • USB/Auxiliary Ports for Mobile Device Synchronization


Keeping the entire family safe constantly are exterior safety features found on the Odyssey. It has an anti-theft alarm system that monitors all outside movement in the vehicle. This system automatically alerts users in the event of a vehicular break-in and even has its very own engine immobilizer that suspends all engine functions temporarily. The Minivan also has Lane Departure Sensors that guide users when changing lanes. Other exterior safety features of the Odyssey are:

  • Daytime Running Headlights
  • Tire-pressure Monitoring System
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Electronic Brake Distribution

Inside the vehicle, the Odyssey  has safety features such as:

  • Multiple Airbags
  • Front and rear seat seatbelts
  • Child Seat Fasteners
  • Child Safety Locks
