What Can You Expect from One of the Year’s Best Minivans?

  • 2016 Honda Odyssey

    The 2016 Honda Odyssey’s artful combination of space, technology, and safety has made it one of the best minivans of 2016 in the minds of everyday drivers and industry experts alike. Families who need a vehicle that can carry up to eight passengers and a staggering 148.5 cubic feet of cargo without sacrificing responsive driving dynamics should look no further, especially when they’ll also discover comfort, convenience, and entertainment technologies normally reserved for luxury SUVs.

Interior Space

Drivers are able to upgrade their Odyssey’s cabin to include luxury features such as leather-trimmed seats, heated seats, and a 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support and two-position memory. Combine those amenities with the ability to accommodate up to eight with room to spare and it’s easy to see why the Odyssey ranks so highly.

You’ll also enjoy up to 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats occupied and 148.5 cubic feet with all seats folded. To put that in perspective, a competitor like the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country only offers 33 and 143.8, respectively. Of course, the interior is as versatile as it is spacious thanks to the following flexibility features:


2016 Honda Odyssey

Multi-Functional Second-Row Center Seat: Just pull down a lever to move the second-row center seat forward to create extra space and easier third-row access.

2016 Honda Odyssey

Wide-Mode Second-Row Seats: Once you’re moving, move the second-row outboard seats 1.5 inches to each side to provide more passenger space.

2016 Honda Odyssey

Third-Row Magic Seat: Flips into below-the-floor storage bins to provide a cavernous cargo area in seconds.

Standard Features

Minivans used to look somewhat Spartan on the inside, but the 2016 Honda Odyssey has helped change that. Expected standard features include cruise control, power windows, and a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system, as well as the following upper-level technologies:

  • Rearview Camera with Guidelines
  • Remote Entry System
  • Pandora Compatibility

You’ll also find a stunning 8-inch multi-informational display to take in all relevant data with ease, and entertainment will come through a 240-watt audio system that boasts seven speakers and an integrated subwoofer. The Sienna, in contrast, only comes with a four-speaker sound system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, while the Town & Country, despite starting at a higher price, makes do with a 6.5-inch display and six-speaker audio system.

The 2016 Honda Odyssey delivers a comprehensive range of premium features as standard, so drivers will feel generously taken care of behind the wheel of even the entry-level model. That said, there are plenty of additional technologies available, including:

2016 Honda Odyssey Vac

HondaVac: This industry-first built-in vacuum sits in the trunk of the vehicle, with a long reach allowing you to access each row in order to clean up the interior in a flash. You won’t find this feature in either the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country or the 2016 Toyota Sienna.

2016 Honda Odyssey Rear Entertainment

Ultrawide Rear Entertainment System: The kids will be entertained for hours when you let them play DVDs or game consoles through the Odyssey’s available 16.2?inch rear screen.

2016 Honda Odyssey Navigation

Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System: Receive turn-by-turn directions to make missed exits and late meetings a thing of the past. Voice recognition comes as standard to let you input info on the go, and Honda HD Digital Traffic is fitted to make sure you stay ahead of unexpected gridlock.


The 2016 Honda Odyssey’s status as the best minivan of 2016 has been cemented by a slew of industry awards, including:

  • One of the 16 Best Family Cars of 2016 by Kelley Blue Book*
  • Best Buy of the Year among minivans for 2016 according to Kelley Blue Book**

Additionally, the Odyssey managed to prove wrong the notion that minivans never fare well in crash tests. After testing by the IIHS, it was awarded 2016 Top Safety Pick status.*** Neither the 2016 Toyota Sienna nor the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country managed to match its results, which is troubling in models that bill themselves as family vehicles.

The Odyssey has always been a favorite with drivers all across the country, and the 2016 model quickly became a top recommendation with numerous industry critics. Here’s a quick overview of what they had to say:

  • “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.” – The Car Connection
  • “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.” – Kelley Blue Book
  • “The 2016 Honda Odyssey is the gold standard in family haulers. It might not have been the first minivan, but its comfort, features, and flexibility put it at the top of the heap.” – Car Gurus
