Overview

What's New

The minivan class may be shrinking, but the 2021 Honda Odyssey is still striving for excellence. The classic people-hauler gets a mid-cycle refresh this year, adding more standard safety features, a redesigned front end, and a few utility upgrades.

Nothing has changed under the hood, and the Odyssey’s fundamental mission remains the same: keep families safe and happy.

Choosing Your Honda Odyssey

Like last year, the Odyssey comes in five trims: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Prices start at $32,910 including destination for a base LX and extend up to $48,940 for an Elite.

Engine Choices

Every Odyssey uses the same engine: a 3.5-liter V6 making 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels only.

Efficiency remains unchanged at an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 combined. That’s decent for the class, and slightly better than competitors like the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona. However, the Sienna and the impressive Chrysler Pacifica are available with hybrid powertrains that are far more efficient.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Children, adults, cargo, you name it – the Odyssey will carry it. The capacious interior is comfortable for up to eight passengers, although the base model misses out on the Magic Slide second-row seats and can only carry seven people. Even the third row gets 38 inches of leg room, which is more than the rear seats in many sedans.

Cargo capacity is a respectable 32.8 cubic feet with all seats in place. The third row folds into the floor at the touch of a button to raise that number to 88.8 cubes. Honda claims that this year’s second-row seats are easier to remove, and doing so creates a massive 144.9 cubic feet of space.

Safety Features

For 2021, the Honda Sensing suite of active safety technologies becomes standard on every Odyssey trim. This means every model gets adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and traffic sign recognition. Also new for 2021 is a new rear-seat reminder system, which includes a camera to make sure you don’t leave anything (or anyone) behind.

All but the base model also get blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as standard, while front and rear parking sensors become standard at the Touring trim level.

The NHTSA gave the Odyssey a five-star overall safety rating, the best possible. While this year's model hasn't been tested by the IIHS, the 2020 Odyssey earned a Top Safety Pick award, and we expect that to carry over.

Connectivity

The Odyssey LX starts with a relatively small 5-inch infotainment screen, which isn’t compatible with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The rest of the range fares better, with an 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone capability.

Two USB ports and a seven-speaker audios system come standard. The EX-L and above add two second-row USB ports, while the Touring and Elite get one more in the third row.

The top two trims also get a rear seat entertainment system with a 10.2-inch screen and two pairs of wireless headphones. A rear seat monitor becomes standard, as do wi-fi hot spot capability and navigation. The Elite brings a wireless phone charger and an 11-speaker audio system.

Honda Odyssey

LX - From $32,910

The Odyssey LX is the cheapest way into a Honda minivan, but it isn’t as plain as you might imagine. Automatic climate control, push button start, an eight-way power driver's seat, and a four-way power passenger seat all come standard. The exterior gets LED headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The biggest cuts come on the options list – only four exterior colors are available, and upholstery comes only in beige.

EX - From $36,310

The EX trim adds useful standard features, most significantly the larger 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also included are heated front seats, a 12-way power driver seat, three-zone automatic climate control, remote start, and the Magic Slide second-row seats.

The outside features LED fog lights, blind-spot monitoring, power sliding doors, heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, and smart entry with walk away auto lock.

EX-L - From $39,580

The Odyssey EX-L starts to push into luxury territory, starting with the seats. Upholstery is leather, and it comes in either brown or gray. A power tailgate lets you program the height that it opens to, and the side mirrors have memory functionality. Also included are a power moonroof, an eight-way power passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the two second-row USB ports, and memory settings for the driver’s seat.

Touring - From $43,620

Stepping up to the Touring trim unlocks Honda’s new rear-seat camera along with a PA system to go hand in hand with the rear seat entertainment system. Navigation comes standard, as do 19-inch wheels, interior ambient LED lighting, parking sensors, and wi-fi compatibility. Third-row passengers get one USB port so that no member of the family has to run low on battery.

Elite - From $48,940

As the king of the Odyssey lineup, the Elite trim includes features like wireless charging, a hands-free power tailgate, and a heated steering wheel. It also gets its own unique touches, like ventilated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding and auto-dimming side mirrors, and a built-in vacuum cleaner.Seats come in beige perforated leather.

CarsDirect Tip

Our pick of the 2021 Honda Odyssey lineup is the EX trim. It’s worth the relatively modest price increase for the upgraded infotainment system, and the additional features make it a good value.

Space for everything. The 2021 Honda Odyssey focuses on what minivans do best: carrying lots of people and things. Honda’s van gets a mild refresh this year, with a redesigned front end that brings the Odyssey further in line with models like the Honda Pilot and Honda Ridgeline.

The interior received a few tweaks, too. Honda redesigned the second row to make the seats easier to remove, which helps cargo space expand from a respectable 32.8 cubic feet behind the third row to a cavernous 144.9.

The cabin is comfortable for people, too. All trims except the base LX seat eight, and the second row’s “Magic Slide” system allows the outward seats to move aside for easier ingress when the middle seat is removed. The third row is one of few that happily seats adults, with 38 inches of leg room.

Newly standard safety. The other big change for 2021 is newly standard safety technologies. The Honda Sensing suite of active safety features is now standard across the lineup, which should be good news for family buyers. The bundle includes advanced features like advanced cruise control, and even blind-spot monitoring is standard from the EX trim upward.

That technology joins already strong crash test scores. The NHTSA has given it a five-star overall safety rating. We expect last year's Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS to carry over as well.

The Odyssey even has a new party trick this year – as automakers work to eliminate deaths of infants left in hot cars, more brands are creating rear seat reminder systems. Honda goes a step further by adding an in-car camera that monitors the second and third rows on top trims.


Honda Odyssey

Just the one engine. The new Odyssey is the same old van under the hood, chugging along with a 3.5-liter V6 that makes an adequate 280 horsepower. The 10-speed automatic transmission is smooth and capable around town.

We don’t have many complaints about the existing powertrain, but we do wish Honda would consider adding another. The Odyssey has no hybrid option, which puts it at a disadvantage against the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica. Both of these models can also come with all-wheel drive, another option the Odyssey lacks.

The Odyssey does handle its bulk well, with accurate steering and a quiet cabin. The ride is naturally geared toward comfort rather than cornering, but that’s a good thing for family road trips.

Good features … mostly. The base Odyssey LX almost makes an excellent value, coming equipped with power seating and automatic climate control. It’s let down by the infotainment system, which is stuck with a 5-inch display that looks small next to competitors.

That’s why we recommend moving up to at least the EX trim, which gains an 8-inch screen and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The EX also gets blind-spot monitoring and three-zone automatic climate control, which make it good bang for the buck at just over $36,000.

Upper Touring and Elite trims get even more luxurious, with features like an in-car PA system and a built-in vacuum. However, their prices push well past $40,000, at which point rivals like the Pacifica starts to look sharper.

Final thoughts. As the options in the minivan segment have dwindled, the remaining competitors have upped the ante. The 2021 Honda Odyssey’s main rivals come from Toyota and Chrysler, and the Odyssey is at a disadvantage without all-wheel drive or a hybrid option.

All the same, the Odyssey has it where it counts: comfort, practicality, and safety. For many buyers, we think that will be reason enough.
