Cool Features and Specs of the 2016 Honda Odyssey

Honda Odyssey mininvan

Every year, the Honda Odyssey is a top-seller in the minivan segment as it is the ideal vehicle for the entire family. The 2016 Honda Odyssey has a very distinct style that makes it very unique among minivans, which normally have boring designs. The Odyssey is also loaded to the brim with features that provide safety, utility, and functionality. It also has a powerful yet fuel friendly engine that appeals to most car buyers. To those living in South Hills, PA, Washington Honda is a highly popular dealership that offers their Honda vehicles at extremely affordable rates.


What separates the 2016 Honda Odyssey from most other minivans is its sporty styling that seems to excite many car buyers. The SE trim is a very sleek minivan that features a front bumper that sports projector beam halogen headlights and automatic fog lights. Moving to each side of the vehicle, it has many exterior features that begin with 17” alloy wheels and body colored side mirrors. The side mirrors even come with an expanded view on the driver side. In addition, the minivan has power sliding doors that are operated by the vehicle’s smart entry system. In the rear of the Odyssey, there is a power-automatic tailgate entry accessorized with LED brake lights and chrome tailgate bumper.

The 2016 Honda Odyssey has an ultra-spacious and comfortable cabin to say the least, with more than enough space for 5 passengers. The cabin is divided into three rows seating with cargo space behind. It also contains leather front and rear seats with power and manual adjustable features. These seats even have ergonomic lumbar support to provide added comfort especially on long road trips.


The 2016 Odyssey is indeed one of the most powerful and efficient minivans this year as it drives on a 3.5 liter V6 engine that permits the vehicle to run on maximum speeds of 248 horsepower with 250 pound feet of torque. Its engine is also coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission and variable valve timing, which allows the minivan to save on fuel consumption.  


The 2016 Odyssey SE is no doubt an ideal family vehicle because it has all the essential safety features inside and outside. It has an anti-theft alarm system that efficiently monitors all external movement. This alarm system even has its own engine immobilizer that deploys in the event of a vehicular theft. It also runs on daytime running headlights that keep the Odyssey more visible during the day. Other safety features worth mentioning are:

  • Tire-pressure Monitoring System
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-lock Brakes
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • 4-wheel ABS


The 2016 Odyssey has the technology that keeps an entire family satisfied. It has a smart keyless entry system that utilizes key fob sensing to lock/unlock all vehicle entrances and power tailgate release simultaneously. The key fob sensing feature requires the vehicle key to be with drivers at all times. It also has power-adjustable mirrors which can be controlled inside the vehicle. These mirrors even have their own heating feature which is useful for driving in colder climates. Other tech features of the sedan trim are:

  • Front Collision Warning - Sensors in the front of the van that warn users when the vehicle is too close with another vehicle or object.
  • Backup Camera - Transmits live video feed on the HondaLink entertainment system inside the cabin to guide users in parking.
  • Backup Sensors - Help drivers by chiming in alert noises when the vehicle is in reverse.

The 2016 Odyssey also has a lot of high-tech features inside its cabin. These features are highlighted by the following:

  • HondaLink Entertainment System
  • LCD Touch Screen
  • Multiple Rear LCD Screens
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • Navigation
  • Bluetooth Hands-free Connectivity
  • Voice Control
  • Steering Wheel Controls
