The Odyssey is Honda’s long-running minivan model. The current fifth-generation model was introduced in 2018.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
Honda has updated the Odyssey for 2021 with revised styling and a shorter selection of trims that eliminates last year’s entry-level LX and EX models.
The new trim range starts with the EX-RES model and moves through EX-L RES and EX-L Navi to Canada’s top-end Touring model. All are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine and a 10-speed transmission.
EX-RES comes dressed with chrome door handles, a front wiper de-icer, all-LED exterior lighting, a sunroof, power-sliding side doors, 18-inch wheels, capless fuel filling, remote engine start, passive keyless entry,
Inside, there’s an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an in-car PA system, conversation mirror, Bluetooth, built-in vacuum cleaner, three-zone A/C, a 12-way power driver’s seat and four-way power front passenger seat, heated front seats, and front and cargo area 12-volt power outlets.
All Odyssey models also come with automatic high beams, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a LaneWatch blind spot display.
EX-L RES adds a power tailgate, a heated steering wheel, driver’s seat memory, leather seating, front and rear parking sensors, and a third-row power outlet.
EX-L Navi adds navigation.
Touring adds 19-inch wheels, wireless smartphone charging, ambient lighting, rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free tailgate, power-folding side mirrors, an 11-speaker stereo, HondaLink connected services, a WiFi hotspot, ventilated front seats, and the CabinWatch rear-seat monitor. Touring also trades the LaneWatch system for proper blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.
Honda’s fuel consumption estimates are 12.2/8.5 L/100 km (city/highway).
