About the 2021 Honda Odyssey

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.

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

What’s New for 2021

Now bolder and better equipped than ever before, the Honda Odyssey gets a number of exciting revisions for the 2021 model year. Changes to the exterior include a revised front fascia, LED headlights, new foglight housings, and newly-available 19-inch alloy wheels on Elite trims. Interior updates include a new climate control layout and fold-flat second-row seats which are now standard across the model lineup. On EX-L grades and above, drivers will enjoy updated seats featuring contrast stitching, second-row seatback pockets, and passenger-seat power lumbar adjustability. Upper trim levels can now be equipped with new interior accents and tri-color floor mats. Finally, every Odyssey now comes standard with the award-winning Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies.

You’ll find an array of helpful solutions and convenience features on the Honda Odyssey which make a big difference to those living active lifestyles.

An available HondaVAC® makes it simple to clean up small messes and crumbs.

Versatile Interior

Every aspect of the interior of the Honda Odyssey has been carefully constructed with your family’s comfort in mind. Available heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front seats help keep those up front comfortable as the miles fly by. Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™ make it easy to move the seats closer to the front row while providing convenient access to the third row. The Odyssey even offers enough space inside to accommodate 4 foot by 8 foot sheets of plywood to help you tackle those weekend home improvement projects. Second and third row sunshades and a Tri-Zone Climate Control System are two available options which help ensure all occupants stay comfortable no matter how far away the destination.
