If the Honda Odyssey is one of the most popular minivans ever, it’s not just because it’s an easy-to-drive family hauler.
The Odyssey is also a category leader because it’s good-looking and has a little scoot to boot.
The 2022 Odyssey is Roomy
Most of us know the Odyssey story. Loved by mom and dad who need to haul around the kids, their bats and balls, along with lawn chairs and coolers, not to mention monthly purchases from big-box retailers.
The 2022 Honda Odyssey is of course roomy. It seats seven or eight people, with removable second-row seats and a foldable third-row bench. The Odyssey offers 38 inches of leg space, which is great for taking grandma and grandpa to see the kids play ball on weekends.
And the Odyssey has cargo space to spare, with 33 cubic feet of luggage capacity when the three rows of seats are up, 88.6 cubic feet when two rows of seats are down and 144.9 cubic feet of cargo area when the second-row seats are removed and the third-row seats are folded up. The Odyssey is a masterwork of versatility.
The Odyssey is also designed to accommodate. The base LX model has seven seats and features power-adjustable, well-padded front seats. The EX model has eight seats and Magic Slide seats. If you remove the second-row center seat, you can move the Magic Slide seats forward and backward. This allows passengers to get in and out of the third row easily. Brilliant!
The Odyssey is Safe
The 2022 Honda Odyssey comes with numerous safety features as well, securing a top five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
But the 2022 Honda Odyssey is a Performer too!
One thing the 2022 Honda Odyssey is not known for its its performance. The Honda Odyssey packs a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission. This generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque while delivering 19 city/28 hwy mpg. A speedster the Odyssey is not, but it can reach 60 mph in 7.6 seconds, so the minivan has more than enough power and handles well enough to pass more fleet-footed sedans on the freeway. According to Hot Cars, the Odyssey “is one of the smoothest and most refined motors of the segment…making it more powerful than the Toyota Siena and Kia Carnival.”
So, there you have it. The 2022 Honda Odyssey is roomy, safe and a performer too.
