What the Critics Say

What sets the Odyssey apart is its smooth-operating V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission and its alert, stable handling that makes it feel more like driving a sedan than a truck or SUV. It’s not by coincidence that today’s Odyssey sits atop our Edmunds rankings for minivans.” — Edmunds

Fleet-footed, efficient, and polished, the Odyssey’s powertrain is a sweetheart that requires zero compromises. The Odyssey changes direction crisply, and from behind the wheel it’s easy to forget you’re piloting a three-row van.” — Car and Driver

What’s New for 2023

Returning for 2023 better than ever before, shoppers will be impressed with the collection of key updates to the Honda Odyssey. Changes to the trim range include the elimination of last year’s entry-level LX grade and the launch of an all-new Sport variant. Odyssey Sport models are identified by their gloss-black exterior trim, 19-inch alloy wheels, red ambient interior lighting, and a unique black leather interior including red contrast stitching. Sonic Gray Pearl is a new exterior color paint choice available on select trims as well. Finally, all 2023 Odyssey models include the new Honda Service Pass that provides coverage for select factory-scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 24,000 miles.

Spacious Interior

Engineers placed a strong emphasis on versatility and proper use of space inside the Honda Odyssey, balancing both comfort and utility. Front-seat passengers can choose their personal temperature settings with the optional heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front seats. Searching for some extra space for passengers? Effortlessly slide the second-row seats closer to the front while increasing third-row legroom using the Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™. The Odyssey is even able to help you accomplish weekend home improvement project goals thanks to its ability to carry 4-foot by 8-foot sheets of plywood inside with the liftgate shut. Tri-Zone Climate Control and third-row sunshades are just two other premium comfort amenities available inside the Honda Odyssey.
