"The Honda Odyssey has long been popular in the minivan segment for its above-average driving experience as well as its many standard and available features." - Mototr Trend

The base trim of the 2017 Odyssey starts at $29,850 and is not the most lucrative choice to make. Investing $4000 more will land you a more functional model with a plethora of standard features. These upgrades have landed Honda in the same territory as the Chrysler Pacifica and Toyota Sienna.

The 2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan is powered by a 3.5-liter SOHC 24-valve i-VTEC V-6 producing 248 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. The Odyssey is EPA-rated for 19/27/22 mpg city/highway/combined.

2017 Honda Odyssey Features

8.4/10

LX, EX, SE, EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite are the six trim levels available for the 2017 Honda Odyssey. The LX is the base model, offering the most adaptability for the least amount of money. For 2017, Honda has added sound-isolating windshields to more models and enabled extras like rear-seat entertainment systems and in-car vacuums accessible on a wider range of models.

We Recommend-

The fact that Honda offers six trim levels on the Odyssey makes your choice even more difficult. However, for a budget buyer, you should go with the EX trim as there is no change in the powertrain though out the Odyssey lineup and this trim adds the maximum number of features without affecting the price that much.

2017 Honda Odyssey Engine and Performance

9.0/10

Agility is a surprising trait in a minivan, but the Odyssey delivers, and its ride isn’t compromised as a result. The Odyssey is quick, too, but its braking performance is slightly below average- Caranddriver.com

The 2017 Odyssey comes with a decent 3.5L V6 engine which is shared among all the trims. The engine is silent and smooth, the way all minivan engines should be. Slight bubbling of the engine could be heard as the rpm spikes while sprinting.

2017 Honda Odyssey Engine Bay

The engine is mated with a paired 9-speed automatic transmission which is untouched for the trim levels of LX, EX, EX-L, and EX-L with Navi and RES. The top 2 trims of Touring and Elite are paired with a brand new 10-speed automatic transmission which generates an additional 32 hp from the 2017 model.

The engine specs remain constant in all three cars. The difference lies in the transmission with the top 2 trims sharing a 10-speed transmission followed by the Chrysler’s 9-speed automatic and Sienna’s 8-speed automatic. The torque and horsepower remain the same for the trio as well.

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Acceleration

The extra 32 hp boost gives the new Odyssey sufficient acceleration. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in a 6.6 second time. However, the new Odyssey performs mediocre in the quarter-mile run with its 15.2-second performance.

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Ride and Handling

2017 Honda Odyssey is comfortable and precise, through the car faces a little body roll. It also has responsive steering which handles sharp turns well making the overall ride an enjoyable experience. 

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Braking

The brake paddle is on the softer side and can easily stop the car, a minivan couldn’t ask for more. Although its breaking distance is not as great as other minivans, the Odyssey stops from 60 mph at 184 feet, slightly longer than the competitors.

“The smartly designed cabin accommodates people and cargo with equal effectiveness. Superbly flexible seating layout makes the Odyssey highly configurable. There's even a vacuum cleaner on board in this top-trim mode”- Edmunds

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Seating and Comfort

The 2017 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of space and comfort for up to 7 passengers.  The second and third rows of seats are the roomiest in the minivan. The second-row seats slide and recline to provide additional comfort or to make room for the third-row seating and cargo compartment.

Cloth upholstery is standard, however, some versions include leather upholstery and heated front seats as options. The Pacifier impressed with its foldable second-row seating, but the Odyssey lacks this feature. The passengers must remove the entire seat, which is a difficult and time-consuming job.

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Cargo space

There are 38.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of seats, 92 cubic feet behind the second row, and 158 cubic feet behind the first row. The third row of seats easily folds flat to load large cargo. However, in Pacifier the second-row seat option bends in the floor leaving a rather smoother surface.

There is only so much you can do to style a minivan, originally, it’s still a big car with a lot of volume. Its Magic Slide seating mechanism makes it a winner in comfort but is a clear obstacle for extending the cargo space.

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Infotainment system

The infotainment system comprises an 8-inch touch screen (except for the base LX trim), which literally converts into a smartphone’s screen, thus creating easy usability. With the old system being laggy and unresponsive this one is intuitive and shift while changing menus. 

2017 Honda Odyssey Infotainment System

Other features include Cabin Control (which lets you send destinations to the Odyssey's navigation system and control the rear-seat entertainment system and climate settings with your smartphone), Cabin Talk (which lets the driver communicate with the second-and third-row passengers using a microphone), Honda VAC (an in-vehicle vacuum), Cabin Watch (which uses a camera to provide a view of the second and third rows on the touch-screen display), Honda Link (which gives you remote access to your minivan), a Wi-Fi hotspot. In Elite and Touring class there is an option of rear camera, where parents could have a close look at their child’s activities at the back.

“Lightning bolt-style window line and all, at least the Honda Odyssey is trying. Style isn't the first consideration of minivan buyers—it ranks down there with easy to find roll cage mounting points—but at least the 2017 Honda Odyssey doesn't penalize buyers”- The Car Connection

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan Dimensions and Weight

The Odyssey is 118.1 inches in length, 79 inches in width, and 84 inches in height. These figures might make it seem, but the Odyssey feels like a regular car behind the wheel. The good handling and well-built structure make navigating in the city's congested streets a breeze.

2017 Honda Odyssey

Thanks to its low roofline, dramatic tumblehome, blacked-out B- and C-pillars, and wide stance, the 2017 Odyssey looks more sporty. Chrome door handles and window framing are standard on most trim levels.

Pacifica is the clear victor in terms of overall appearance. The Odyssey's dimensions are similar to the Pacifica's, but it is shorter in height, providing the Pacifica more headroom. Despite this, it is 170 pounds lighter than the Pacifica. Although the Toyota Sienna is a fun ride, it is shorter in all three dimensions, restricting the spaciousness.

2017 Honda Odyssey Safety

9.8/10

The 2017 odyssey gains an all-star rating from both the NHTSA and the IIHS which makes it an ideal pick under the safety regime. With its wide-opening rear doors and hassle-free rear-facing infant seats, it’s best for families with young children. Odyssey’s standard safety features are available in all but not in the base LX trim, the bundle includes automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlamps, to name a few.

2017 Honda Odyssey Competition

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan vs 2017 Toyota Sienna 

The Toyota Sienna is the next best thing after the Odyssey, and its 16 more horsepower make it a strong contender to unseat Honda as the sector leader, albeit its limited cargo volume prevents it from doing so. Then there's Toyota's long-standing reputation for superior fuel efficiency. Being the sector leader, though, is about more than just providing goods; it's also about delivering them at the appropriate price. As a result, the Odyssey remains the finest.

2017 Toyota Sienna

2017 Honda Odyssey Minivan vs 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

With its additional 7 hp, the Pacifica handily defeats the Odyssey in a horsepower battle. However, power is not the major reason for purchasing a minivan; payload is the main concern. The Pacifica has a modest load capacity, giving Odyssey an obvious edge. Chrysler outperforms Honda in terms of efficiency, becoming the most efficient vehicle in the lineup.

2017 Honda Odyssey Final Verdict

With the Odyssey, Honda sets the bar for the minivan community. The onboard passengers will enjoy the extraordinary comfort of personal space thanks to an updated infotainment system that received excellent safety ratings and an amazing sitting experience. The only negative aspect of this vehicle is the arduous process of removing the second seat in order to maximize cargo capacity.

The 2017 Honda Odyssey starts from $29,850
