Trim Levels

The Odyssey minivan is a good alternative to the three-row Pilot crossover for those who do not need the off-road capability—or image—that SUVs offer.

2019 Odyssey LX: The Odyssey's base trim includes 18-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable front seats, third-row seats that fold into the rear cargo area out of the way, automatic climate control, push-start ignition, a seven-speaker audio system, a 5.0-inch infotainment screen, Bluetooth, and two USB ports.

2019 Odyssey EX: Move up to the EX and the Odyssey adds the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist safety features, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, heated front seats, Magic Slide second-row seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

2019 Odyssey EX-L: Building off the Odyssey's EX's features, the EX-L adds a moonroof, a power tailgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-trimmed seating, and two additional USB ports in the second row.

2019 Odyssey EX-L Navi/RES: The EX-L Navi/RES trim adds the Cabin Talk in-car PA system, a rear seat entertainment system (RES) with a 10.2-inch screen, a 110-volt front power outlet, and a navigation system.

2019 Odyssey Touring: The Touring trim replaces the standard nine-speed automatic transmission with a 10-speed unit and adds LED headlights, LED fog lights, a hands-free tailgate, front and rear parking sensors, an interior vacuum, the CabinWatch rear seat monitor system, and mobile hotspot capability.

2019 Odyssey Elite: The Odyssey's range-topping Elite trim adds power-folding side view mirrors, a heated steering wheel, blue LED ambient lighting, heated and ventilated front seats, an upgraded 11-speaker audio system, and a wireless phone charger.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The front-drive 2019 Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. It delivers an EPA-rated 19/28 mpg with the standard nine-speed automatic and the optional 10-speed automatic. In Motor Trend testing, the Odyssey Elite hit 60 mph in 6.9 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 124 feet.

Safety

The Honda Odyssey is considered an IIHS 2018 Top Safety Pick for receiving the highest rating of Good in all crash tests. Thanks to the automatic emergency braking feature in the Honda Sensing package, which is standard on the EX trim and up, it also earns the highest rating of Superior in the front crash prevention test for avoiding collisions in 12- and 25-mph front crash prevention tests. The package also includes lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control. The 2019 Odyssey received the highest five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

With all rows up, the 2019 Odyssey offers 32.8 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row, 86.6 to 89.2 behind the second row, and a whopping 140.7 to 144.9 cubic feet behind the first row. The first and second rows have 40.9 inches of legroom and the third row has 38.1 inches.

Technology

The base infotainment system in the LX trim includes a 5.0-inch screen with Bluetooth and a seven-speaker audio system. A larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio come equipped in the EX trim and higher. The EX-L Navi/RES trim sports the Cabin Talk system, a rear seat entertainment system, and a navigation system. Cabin Watch and mobile hotspot capability are found in the Touring trim and the Elite trim adds a wireless phone charger and an 11-speaker audio system.

What We Think

During a First Test review of the 2018 Honda Odyssey, we enjoyed the minivan's quicker acceleration, slightly better fuel economy, and improved interior over the outgoing model. The Odyssey's interior space and comfort impressed us. Even so, we questioned the Magic Slide second-row seats (which slide side to side) because you'll have to store the middle seat somewhere if you want a seven-seat configuration. However, those seats do provide easier access to the third row and allow a child to be secured closer to the driver. We liked the CabinWatch monitor and CabinTalk features, which allow the driver to keep an eye on or talk to rear passengers.

We concluded our review by saying, "For those who want or don't mind a minivan, the Odyssey is one of the most spacious around, with a highly functional interior that shines best if you can find a place in the garage for that middle second-row seat. Once you do, you'll be driving one of the most well-rounded players in the shrinking minivan segment."

In 2018 Motor Trend Car of the Year testing, we liked the Odyssey's smooth 10-speed automatic, the CabinTalk and CabinWatch features, and the minivan's comfortable ride and nimble handling. However, we did not like how the second row did not fold down and weren't fans of the updated exterior styling. "Chrysler's more practical, more elegant Pacifica is better," we concluded.
