The minivan from the house of Honda offers a feature-packed cabin with an ample amount of room inside, where you won’t feel exhausted even on long journeys. 2011 Odyssey comes with a 3.6L V6 motor as standard, which is not the best in terms of performance but offers class-leading fuel economy.

Priced at $28,000 for 2011 MY, Odyssey is completely redesigned from the ground up. It now looks sleeker, sports a commodious cabin, and is equipped with better features like a chilled storage box. It rivals the likes of the 2011 Nissan Quest, 2011 Chrysler Town and Country, and 2011 Kia Sedona.

2011 Honda Odyssey Features

9.0/10

2011 Honda Odyssey is offered in five exciting trim levels, namely, LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite. The top two trim levels are packed with a plethora of advanced features like a 15GB hard drive, separate rear audio and wireless headphones, heated front seats with 10-way power adjustments, and many more, and you’ll find the prices of these trims climb drastically. 

However, even base trims feel adequately equipped with features like ambient lighting, refrigerated storage, and leather upholstery. Each trim of the 2011 Odyssey makes use of the standard 3.5L V6 engine and is channeled as an FWD variant only.

We Recommend

In our point of view, the EX-L will be a better option to consider among all. If you are looking for a minivan, you want better utility along with good comfort and luxurious amenities, which will be fulfilled with the EX-L variant. Apart from the basic specifications, the mid-level trim also adds optional rear-seat entertainment and navigation systems for the buyers.

2011 Honda Odyssey Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2011 Odyssey comes equipped with only one engine option on offer which is a 3.5L naturally aspirated V6 unit. This engine churns out 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque and is mated with a standard 5-speed automatic gearbox. Touring and Touring Elite trims get a new six-speed automatic transmission and the van comes in only FWD configuration. The V6 motor on offer is not the best in terms of performance, but it has enough power to pull this minivan quite fast and cruise at a decent speed on the highways.

2011 Honda Odyssey Minivan takes 8.3 seconds to sprint from 0-60 mph, which is appreciable for a family wagon and can breach the quarter-mile mark in 16.2 seconds. The top speed figure is recorded as 120 mph, which is lower than the competitors.

2011 Honda Odyssey Interior

8.0/10

2011 Odyssey offers one of the most premium-looking cabins in the segment. The cabin is crafted with a selection of high-quality materials and features all beige color interiors that give you a roomy feeling inside. The dashboard looks very modern with all the sophisticated design elements. The top is wrapped in soft-touch material, while the aluminum trim running over it catches one's attention. The shift knob is mounted on the dash, which helps in increasing the room at the front by keeping the center area unoccupied.

The 2011 Odyssey Minivan offers comfortable seating for 7 adults. It features leather upholstery in the seats which come with power adjustments and heating function as well. All three rows offer almost equally spacious rooms so that you won’t feel much difference in seating comfort. Along with the roomier cabin, you’ll also get plenty of boot space of 38.4 cu.-ft that can hold almost any size of luggage comfortably.

All the vans in the competition provide comfortable seating for 7, however, the Quest offers plenty of room in all the rows as compared to others, however, at the cost of boot space. The Odyssey has an ample amount of legroom in the third row, while the Chrysler has a cramped third row. The boot space on offer in the 2011 Odyssey is significantly larger than the rivals, closely followed by the Chrysler Town and Country, having a trunk volume of 33 cu.-ft.

  • Ambient lighting
  • Power front passenger seat

How intuitive is the 2011 Honda Odyssey’s infotainment unit?

The infotainment unit of the 2011 Odyssey minivan will impress you with the features it has on offer. You can get a voice-operated navigation system with 15GB of digital storage or a rear-seat entertainment system with a 9-inch screen and a 115-volt AC power outlet. As a part of the upgraded rear-seat entertainment system in the Touring Elite model, it comes with a big 16.2-inch screen with split-screen capabilities and an HDMI port. The panel is not a touchscreen unit, but has good graphics and is quite user-friendly as well. The dash is riddled with too many knobs and switches. 

Standout infotainment features:

  • 12-speaker 650-watt sound system
  • SiriusXM radio
  • HandsFree Link communication
  • 5.1 surround sound theatre mode
  • Wireless headphones

2011 Honda Odyssey Exterior

9.0/10

The exterior of the 2011 Honda Odyssey Minivan looks stately and elegant. It was constructed with subtle design elements with a limited number of cuts and creases. The sharp headlamps perfectly merge with the grille, which is highlighted with a lot of chrome work. The rear end of the van seems quite odd though. 

The windows at the rear are designed to retain the practicality of the van. Even though it doesn’t align with the design, it gives you an airy feel inside. It has 18-inch alloy wheels that look decent and contribute to enhancing its looks. The taillamps are a single unit that runs throughout the rear end and gives a modern appeal. The glass area at the rear is also kept quite wide, and all the windows are tinted very dark to keep the cabin cool.
