Following a redesign in 2018, the 2021 Honda Odyssey will roll in with a refreshed body, updated interior, and new tech.
On the outside, the bulk of the 2021 Honda Odyssey will remain the same. Upfront, though, this minivan will gain an all-new face with new LED headlights, a revamped blackout grille with a thin upper chrome strip, a new lower fascia, and updated fog light housings. Down the sides, a keen eye will also pick up the new gloss-black trim and chrome strip under the rear windows. Rounding out the changes will be new 19-inch wheels on the Elite trim.
Inside, the 2021 Honda Odyssey will get a handful of updates too. They will include refreshed climate controls and fold-flat second-row seats across all trim levels. In the EX and higher trims, the 2021 Odyssey will get tri-color floor mats and lighted USB ports. From the EX-L trim and up, this revamped minivan will gain refreshed seats with contrast stitching, passenger-seat power lumbar support, and second-row seatback pockets. New piano black trim on the dash, doors, and front door handles will make up the updated to the Touring and Elite models, but the latter will also add perforated leather first- and second-row seats, contrast stitching and piping on all three rows, and exclusive dash trim.
Powering the 2021 Odyssey will be the same 3.5-liter V6 engine that pumps out 280 horsepower. The power will continue to flow through a 10-speed automatic transmission on its way to the front wheels.
The current Honda Odyssey is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and we expect no structural changes to throw the 2021 Odyssey off course. Also helping it qualify for the IIHS’ second-highest honor is the optional Honda Sensing gear, which includes active lane control, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and blind-spot monitors. In 2021, Honda Sensing will be standard on all Odyssey models. Also new in 2021 will be the rear-seat reminder that alerts the driver if they leave someone in the rear seat after exiting the vehicle.
