In 1995, Honda chose to dive into the minivan realm with its all-new Odyssey. Despite the fact that Dodge and Chrysler dominated the class, the Odyssey held its own and continues strong into the 2013 model year.
Changes for 2013 are minimal: the addition of the rearview camera, i-MID system and Bluetooth to the base LX trim level. In total, the 2013 Odyssey comes in five trim levels, including: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite. All five trim levels come standard with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that has 248 horsepower and 250 foot-pounds of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission comes standard on the LX, EX and EX-L trim levels and the driveline nets these model 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. On the Touring and Touring Elite models you get a six-speed automatic transmission, which increases the economy to 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
The LX trim level acts as the base level for the 2013 Odyssey, as it includes all of the basic feature expected of a minivan and a few extra goodies. On the outside, the LX trim includes vehicle stability control and traction control to keep the van planted to the pavement at all times, 17-inch steel wheels with hubcaps to help save some money, keyless entry for quick-and-easy access, power mirrors for easy adjustments and projector beam headlights for safer nighttime driving. Inside the cabin, the Odyssey LX includes two-zone A/C, a 229-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system with seven speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, an eight-way power driver seat for additional convenience, and an i-MID with an 8-inch screen and rearview camera.
The EX trim level builds onto the LX by adding in select premium features. On the outside, the EX trim level adds in 17-inch alloy wheels for a sleeker look, power sliding doors for easier access, a security system to keep the van safe when it is parked, and heated side-view mirrors for folks in cooler climate. Inside the Honda’s cabin, the EX trim adds in three-zone auto climate control with filtration for optimal comfort, the HomeLink system for easier access to your home via a universal remote, removable front-center console with storage for added convenience, and a 10-way power driver seat, so the driver can find the perfect seating position for those long trips.
The EX-L trim level continues to add in luxury, as it builds onto the EX trim level with extra features. On the outside, the EX-L trim level adds a one-touch power moonroof so you can enjoy a breeze on warm days, and a power tailgate for easy access to the cargo area. Inside the cabin, the EX-L trim level tosses in a leather-wrapped steering wheel for a better look and feel, a Cool Box to keep your drinks cool as you drive, an auto-dimming rearview mirror to prevent cars behind you from blinding you with their headlights, four-way power passenger seat for easier adjustment, and leather seating with heated front seats for optimal comfort.
The Touring trim level adds to the EX-L trim and makes the Odyssey a near-luxury minivan by adding high-end features. On the outside, the Touring trim adds in 18-inch alloy wheels for extra style and comfort, fog lamps for easier traveling through low-laying clouds, memory settings for side-view mirrors so you never struggle to find the best position, an acoustic windshield to keep noise to a minimum, and parking sensors to help you squeeze this van into a parking space safely. On the inside, the Touring trim level adds in Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system with voice control, the i-MID system with a high-resolution screen, rear DVD entertainment system to keep the kiddos busy, memory settings for the power driver seat, a 246-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with a subwoofer, and ambient lighting to set a nice mood in the interior.
The Touring Elite trim level carries most of the Touring trim level’s features, but adds mild upgrades to really set it apart from the pack. On this outside, the Touring Elite adds in HID headlights with auto-on and off for safer nighttime driving. Inside the cabin, the Touring Elite Honda’s Ultrawide Rear Entertainment system with HDMI entertainment for distracting the young ones on long trips, Blind Spot Information System, so you know when someone is in your blind spot view before changing lanes, and a 650-watt audio system with 12 speakers, 5.2-channel surround sound and a subwoofer for the best in audio entertainment.
