Minivans may not be noted for delivering outstanding style, but the Odyssey does its best to at least curry visual interest. Then again, some may find the look polarizing, especially with its profile view featuring a floating roof, wavy beltline, and mismatched character lines. The front fascia matches other Honda products and that's a good thing.
Style conflict aside, the 2019 Odyssey does what it has to do on a frame it shares with the Pilot crossover SUV and the Ridgeline pickup truck. The expected rear sliding doors and big liftgate are what families want for ease of access and egress to the cabin and cargo area.
Inside, space is cavernous and supplies enough for adults to sit comfortably in all three rows. We're especially impressed by the front center console, which is large enough to hold a diaper bag or a briefcase. Generous amounts of storage slots and cubbies abound, including drink holders where you expect to find them.
Although the middle seat doesn't fold flat, we like that it can be moved further up or back as needed. Removing the seats, weighing 70 pounds, is an option. When out of the way, the 2019 Odyssey has 144.9 cubic feet of storage space behind the first row, more than the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona.
