The Honda Odyssey is a sensible choice in the minivan segment offering a great value for the price. The Honda badge gives peace of mind in terms of the reliability of the Odyssey which is very important for a minivan. The prime reason why people buy a minivan is the practicality that it offers and for that segment of buyers, reliability becomes a very crucial factor.
The 2012 Honda Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine which is powerful enough to solve the purpose very well. That is more than enough for a people mover which is both round and bulky in size. Its main competitors are not that far behind, and the 2012 Honda Odyssey directly competes with the Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Town and Country, and the Nissan Quest.
