Coming fresh from in 2013 with almost no changes having made on it previously, the new Honda Odyssey for 2021 comes featuring a few subtle changes in different areas. This best-selling minivan comes within an 8-passenger seating capacity spread in three rows.
There a considerable amount of nifty technology items provided by the Japanese manufacturer especially at top trims. A few of the features include an 8-inch color touchscreen audio interface, active noise cancellation, smartphone app integration, a built-in vacuum designed to handle the messes kids inevitably leave in their wake, and a standard rearview camera.
Another reason you be heading to your nearest showroom to buy this minivan is the fact that the vehicle features top scores in both insurance and government crash tests, combine them with advanced safety features like lane-departure warning and optional forward collision alert and you are set to go.
The most noticeable attribute would perhaps be the smooth driving experience that the vehicle promises. We could spend a whole day praising the 2021 Honda Odyssey, it is always imperative to explore other options. The Toyota Siena boasts of an agile engine and tons of added technology and safety features. Another option would be the Nissan Quest, which is popular for its handsome and high-quality interior. Other options include Ford Transit Connect and Dodge Grand Caravan.
The new vehicle will be motivated by a 3.5 L V6 capable of yielding 248 hp and 250 pounds of torque. The power will be sent to the FWD through the 6-speed auto transmission unit, even though there are plans of an AWD body. EPA estimates the minivan fuel economy to become better than in 2013’s 19/28/22 mpg in the city/highway/combined.
A few opinions also allege to a possibility of a hybrid powertrain, even though the details haven’t been confirmed or denied.

When properly equipped, the vehicle has the ability to tow up to 3,500 lbs. A few of the safety features to expect from the vehicle include antilock disc brakes, front-seat side-impact airbags, stability and traction control, front-seat active head restraints and side curtain airbags that cover all three rows.
