For starters, there are two areas of the Honda Odyssey that might not be what you would expect from a minivan. The first is, of course, its appearance. One of the main reasons people stopped purchasing minivans is because they weren’t “cool,” but that negative stigma is quickly dissipating as new minivans adopt a more and more modern style and design. The other, is that the Honda is much more powerful than you might expect. Beneath its hood rests a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 248 horsepower, that’s more than some sports sedans.
The 2016 Honda Odyssey delivers the best of performance, efficiency and safety all at the same time, and adds in a heavy dose of space and capacity, which is why it’s one of the most popular minivans on the market. With that same, powerful engine mentioned above, the Odyssey achieves 8.4 l/100km city, which is pretty impressive for a vehicle as big as the Odyssey. As for space, it delivers 38.4 cu. ft. behind the third row alone, and the number only goes up the more seats you drop. And how does 172.6 cu. ft. of passenger volume sound?
