Honda Odyssey

  • 2016 Honda Odyssey

    The Honda Odyssey is a family-friendly minivan that offers smart features, class-leading safety, and ample space for your brood. This minivan has long been a winning choice in the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area, and it is in stock now at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake. If you’re upgrading your minivan this year, then take a hard look at the Odyssey.

What Are You Looking For?

Current Model

The current 2016 Honda Odyssey is an incredibly functional vehicle with seating for eight, and plenty of luggage space – but it’s not just functional. It also gets standard equipment like a power adjustable driver seat, multi-zone climate control, a rearview camera, and more, all in the base trim. High level trims can even include high-tech features like a big touchscreen infotainment system, a rear-seat entertainment system, and the signature in-car HondaVAC vacuum cleaner.

The Honda Odyssey also wins with its impressive 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway* rating from the EPA. It doesn’t skimp on power either, with its 3.5L V6, good for up to 248 hp and a useful max towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

  • The Car Connection: At the Car Connection, Bengt Halvorson writes, “The 2016 Honda Odyssey stands at the top of the minivan heap, with more design flair and more driving enjoyment than most other three-row rivals.” He also praises the “good interior packaging, responsive handling, [and] sedan-like fuel economy.”
  • Rick Popely roundly praised the Honda Odyssey, which “earned a Best Bet designation from’s editors for its well-rounded performance, reasonable fuel economy, and a roomy interior made with quality materials. The clincher for families with young children: It can fit three child-safety seats in the second row, which adjusts for width (and fore-aft on all trims except the LX).”
  • Kelley Blue Book: Kelley Blue Book expert Keith Buglewicz gives the Odyssey a remarkable 8.9 expert rating. He writes, “From its sliding side doors to its in-car vacuum, the 2016 Honda Odyssey was built with the family in mind. Easier to park than a full-size SUV, not to mention being less fuel thirsty, the Odyssey is the feature-packed 8-passenger shuttle your family has been looking for.”
  • AutoTrader: AutoTrader didn’t mince words when praising the Odyssey, praising its “massive, highly usable interior; seating for up to eight; quick acceleration; exceptional driving comfort.”
  • Edmunds: This publication is known for their decisive judgments and thorough reviews, and the new Odyssey came out ahead on all counts. Edmunds reviewers say, “The 2016 Honda Odyssey continues its reign as one of the best minivans on the market.” Pros include: “Fuel-efficient V6; quiet cabin; configurable second-row seat; easy-to-fold third row seat; top crash test scores; confident handling.”

Future Models

The Honda Odyssey is almost set for a refresh or a complete redesign. The automotive press has even spotted test-mules in camouflage, so we expect a new generation as soon as the 2017 model year. To understand what might change with the Odyssey, it’s important to remember that the minivan will share a platform with the Honda Pilot crossover SUV. With that shared platform in mind, the Odyssey could get these changes:

  • All-wheel drive could be on the options list for the new Odyssey.
  • A new nine-speed automatic transmission will likely be offered – at least on the top Touring or Elite trim levels.
  • A new 3.5L V6 engine will likely make more power and be more efficient thanks to direct injection and other engine technologies.
  • The Honda Sensing suite of safety technologies will almost certainly be offered next year with features like automatic collision prevention braking.

We expect the new 2017 Honda Odyssey to debut as soon as the second half of 2016, so stay tuned for news on the new model.
