2020 Honda Odyssey for sale in Edmonton, AB
2020 is the 25th model year of the Honda Odyssey, and this incredible minivan continues to go from strength to strength. Whether you're a business shuttling clients along Highway 2 to Edmonton International Airport or a busy parent taking the family to West Edmonton Mall for a big day shopping, no vehicle suits the job better than the 2020 Honda Odyssey.
There may be cooler vehicles you can buy out there these days, but the honest truth is none of them will be as practical, flexible and comfortable as a minivan, and the Honda Odyssey proves itself to be the best vehicle of its type available, year-in, year-out.
It's not easy to make a minivan look good because the starting point for the designers has to be space and practicality, but you have to hand it to the folks at Honda. With the Odyssey they've produced a model that's about as stylish as a minivan can be, but without compromising that inherent practicality or saddling it with a prohibitively expensive price ticket.
The Odyssey shares some exterior styling cues from the Ridgeline pickup and Pilot SUV it shares a similar platform with, and there's a little bit of Civic and Accord thrown in just for good measure.
Inside you'll find plentiful amounts of space for up to eight people and their cargo, and the different ways you can slide, fold and lift the seats offer an almost bewildering amount of possible configurations for any number of different applications. Basically, the 2020 Odyssey can be a large two-seat cargo fan, an eight-seat people hauler or any combination in between. On top of all that flexibility, it's also a pretty plush and comfortable pace to be too.
This 2020 Honda Odyssey will make you forget any ideas you may have about minivans being old technology that just gets a bit of a tweak every now and again. The Honda is bursting with the kind of features that some sedans and SUVs don’t have yet, such as a 10-speed automatic transmission which this year replaces the already excellent nine-speed unit of last year.
One engine powers the 2020 Odyssey across the entire range, and it's a potent performer that makes light work of a journey through Red Deer to Calgary or further, even if you're carrying a full load of people and cargo.
The engine in question is a 3.5-litre gas V-6 that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, and it sends its power to the front wheels through that 10-speed automatic transmission. The Odyssey has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds and boasts fuel economy ratings of 12.2 L/100km in the city, 8.5 L/100km on the highway and 10.6 L/100km combined.
Hugely impressive standard equipment
There are six different versions of the 2020 Honda Odyssey to choose between, which start off with the very nicely equipped LX and then go to the EX, EX RES, EX-L NAVI, EX-L RES and the top-of-the-line Touring model.
Base LX models come standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, a couple of USB ports, a sliding third-row seat and a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
EX-L and EX-L NAVI versions of the Odyssey then add the likes of leather upholstery, satellite navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system, respectively. Go all the way to the Odyssey Touring and it's a bit like having a hotel suite on wheels with an in-car vacuum, heated and cooled front seats, an upscale premium audio system, a wireless device charging, an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, 19-inch alloy wheels and plenty more besides.
