The 2016 Honda Odyssey Is One of the Best Minivans of 2016

  • 2016 Honda Odyssey

    The 2016 Honda Odyssey effortlessly stands out as one of the best minivans of 2016 thanks to its vast and versatile cabin, array of standard and available features, and combined adulation of the entire automotive industry. If you’re looking for a minivan, you might have been attracted by models like the 2016 Nissan Quest, 2016 Toyota Sienna, 2016 Chrysler Town & Country, 2016 Kia Sedona, or 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan, but not one of them can truly compete with the Odyssey.

Interior Space

The 2016 Honda Odyssey has been designed to accommodate the needs of the modern family. The team over at Honda knows these needs can change on an hour-by-hour basis, so the Odyssey offers:


2016 Honda Odyssey

Multi-functional Second-row Center Seat: At the pull of a lever, the seat moves forward to create extra space and make third-row access easier.

2016 Honda Odyssey

Wide-mode Second-row Seats: The second-row outboard seats can be moved 1.5 inches to each side to provide more passenger space.

2016 Honda Odyssey

Third-row Magic Seat: The Odyssey’s rear row folds down into below-the-floor storage bins in one seamless motion, so you can accommodate larger pieces of cargo at the drop of a hat.


Of course, versatility won’t be all that’s on your side with the Odyssey; there’s also a staggering 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats occupied and 148.5 cubic feet with all seats folded. Here’s how the competition measures up:

  • Nissan Quest: 25.7 cubic feet as standard or 108.4 with all seats folded.
  • Chrysler Town & Country: 33 cubic feet as standard or 143.8 with all seats folded.
  • Kia Sedona: 33.9 cubic feet as standard or 142 with all seats folded.
  • Dodge Grand Caravan: 33 cubic feet as standard or 143.8 with all seats folded.

Standard Features

Even the base-level 2016 Odyssey has been treated to a comprehensive array of standard features. As you might expect, cruise control, full power accessories, and Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity come as standard, but you’ll also benefit from the following premium features at no added cost:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • 8-inch infotainment display screen
  • Rearview camera
  • Eight-way power driver’s seat
  • Seven-speaker audio system

The competition fails to keep pace. Automatic headlights, for example, aren’t fitted as standard in the 2016 Nissan Quest, 2016 Chrysler Town & Country, or 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan, while even something as simple as floor mats are either optional or completely unavailable with models like the 2016 Nissan Quest, 2016 Toyota Sienna, 2016 Chrysler Town & Country, and 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan.


While its standard features ably set the 2016 Honda Odyssey apart, drivers will also find that the vehicle allows them to take advantage of a number of available technologies that can’t be equipped at any price on competitors. Such high-end amenities include:


2016 Honda Odyssey Vac

HondaVac: The Odyssey can present an industry-first, a built-in vacuum cleaner to ensure that you can keep your minivan neat and tidy. A long reach lets you get into every nook and cranny, while the removable waste bin makes for easy emptying.

2016 Honda Odyssey Rear Entertaiment

Ultrawide rear entertainment system: Taking a long journey with the kids just got that much easier; simply keep them entertained by playing a DVD or games console on the Odyssey’s available 16.2?inch rear screen. The 11-inch rear monitors of the Nissan Quest or the 9-inch screens of the Dodge Grand Caravan will seem tiny by comparison.

2016 Honda Odyssey Navigation

Honda satellite-linked navigation system: Naturally enough, only the Honda offers this sat-nav system. Voice-command technology lets you input destinations on the go, and the system is also equipped with Sony-by-Voice and Honda HD Digital Traffic.


Year after year, the Odyssey has never failed to win industry awards. Nothing has changed for 2016; here are just a few of its honors:

  • Named Among’s 16 Best Family Cars of 2016*
  • Named Among U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 Best Cars for Families**
  •’s Best Buy of the Year Award in its class for 2016***

In addition to receiving such coveted industry awards as those listed above, the 2016 Honda Odyssey has been singled out as one of the safest vehicles on the road by earning both 2016 Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS**** and a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA.*****

Competing minivans like the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan, 2016 Chrysler Town & Country, 2016 Nissan Quest, and 2016 Toyota Sienna all failed to match those safety ratings.


The 2016 Honda Odyssey is a favorite among everyday drivers, but it has also attracted more than its fair share of glowing reviews:


2016 Honda Odyssey

Kelley Blue Book – “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.”

2016 Honda Odyssey – “Class-leading steering precision and confidence-inspiring handling make the Odyssey feel smaller and more carlike than it actually is.”

2016 Honda Odyssey

The Car Connection – “The 2016 Honda Odyssey isn’t only an example of a minivan done well, but it’s also an example of a family vehicle done well. It handles multiple combinations of passengers and cargo, kids and diaper bags.”
