If you were wondering what Honda could have done to make the 2015 Odyssey more appealing than the current model, it seems that they felt similarly: the 2015 Honda Odyssey‘s changes are barely noticeable. The fact is that the 2014 Odyssey was one of our most popular vehicles at Capital Region Honda Dealers, and we would’ve been a bit surprised to see much change for 2015.
But if you aren’t quite sure what’s made the Odyssey such a prolific minivan, we have a review of the changes that made the 2014 model so popular—the very same ones that are back for 2015!
Features of the 2015 Honda Odyssey
The 2014 model gave Honda’s minivan a refresh that brought new styling, new features, updated safety tech, and tweaks to the engine to make the Odyssey even more fuel efficient. One of the most noteworthy additions, the one that garnered quite a few headlines on blogs and news sites, was Honda’s partnership with ShopVac for the HondaVac vacuum cleaner found on the Touring Elite trim level.
Of course, a close second to the HondaVac was the class-leading fuel economy delivered through Honda’s 3.5L V6 and new six-speed automatic transmission; each 2015 Odyssey earns an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg.*
And about those high-tech safety features we mentioned… Honda’s minivan can be had with the following accident avoidance technologies:
- Lane departure warning
- Forward collision warning
- Multi-angle rearview camera
- Honda LaneWatch
Each Odyssey equipped with forward collision warning earned one of highest safety ratings from the IIHS as well: Top Safety Pick.
The engine and upgradeable features are just a part of the picture, and if you’re wondering if Honda has something for the entry-level driver, don’t worry. Honda has been redefining the idea of “standard features” by giving even the basic Odyssey LX amenities that include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, an 8-inch i-MID touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera with guidelines, and more.
