Honda Odyssey Profile

About the 2020 Honda Odyssey

Turn every family trip into a memorable adventure with the stylish Honda Odyssey. No other minivan can match the versatility, outstanding fuel economy, and contemporary style of the Odyssey. Its standard 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6 engine paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission allows the Odyssey to deliver up to 28 MPG on the highway**. Not only does the Odyssey offer comfortable seating for up to 8, it’s also packed with ingenious seating configurations to carry cargo, passengers, or even a mix of both. A standard one-motion 60/40 split 3rd-row Magic Seat® provides easy access to the rear seats. Even the most hard-to-please members of the family are sure to appreciate the available Advanced Rear Entertainment System which features a massive 10.2 inch screen, Blu-ray™ player, and streaming apps to eliminate boredom. Groundbreaking Honda Sensing® safety technologies ensure that your most precious cargo stays protected on your journey.

What the Critics Say

Fleet-footed, efficient, and polished, the Odyssey’s powertrain is a sweetheart that requires zero compromises. The Odyssey changes direction crisply, and from behind the wheel it’s easy to forget you’re piloting a three-row van.” — Car and Driver

What sets the Odyssey apart is its smooth-operating V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission and its alert, stable handling that makes it feel more like driving a sedan than a truck or SUV. It’s not by coincidence that today’s Odyssey sits atop our Edmunds rankings for minivans.” — Edmunds
