For most of its lifespan, the Honda Odyssey has been a top pick among minivans. It really hit its stride when Honda redesigned it for 1999. That van featured a powerful engine, an exceptionally spacious cabin and an innovative third-row seat that folded into the floor. These attributes have carried through to every Honda Odyssey since.
The Odyssey is typically an all-around favorite in the minivan class. It's loaded with family-friendly features and boasts consistently strong crash test scores and confident driving dynamics. On the road, the Odyssey impresses with its smooth engine and relatively agile handling. Inside, Honda's minivan is notable for its above-average build quality and spacious, comfortable seating in all three rows.
