2020 Honda Odyssey Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Honda Odyssey?

The front-wheel-drive Honda Odyssey minivan can seat seven or eight, depending on the trim level. It has a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Toyota Sienna, Kia Sedona and Chrysler Pacifica.

What’s New on the 2020 Honda Odyssey?

All Odyssey trim levels now have a 10-speed automatic transmission and engine stop-start technology, both of which were limited to high-end trims last year. A dealer-installed 25th Anniversary Package adds chrome accents, illuminated sill plates and special badges. Unique 19-inch wheels can also be added to the package.

What Features in the 2020 Honda Odyssey Are Most Important?

Bluetooth and USB connectivity let you pair your devices when you’re on the go, while the easy-folding third-row seat allows you to quickly switch from passenger- to cargo-carrying duty. Available CabinWatch and CabinTalk tech features let you keep an eye on and talk to rear passengers.

2020 Honda Odyssey Vs. 2020 Toyota Sienna: How Do They Compare?

From a driving manners and cabin comfort standpoint, the Odyssey and Sienna are closely matched. The Odyssey’s starting price is slightly lower, but the Sienna comes standard with active safety features like lane-keeping assist that are optional on the Honda. The Odyssey’s EPA-estimated gas mileage is slightly better, but the Sienna is the rare minivan that offers available all-wheel drive.

Should I Buy the 2020 Honda Odyssey?

If you and your family need an all-purpose vehicle to transport your kids and their stuff, the Odyssey continues to be a good choice. Eight-seat models can fit three child-safety seats in the second row, which is a big deal for some families, but we were less impressed with its CabinTalk technology and unrefined engine stop-start system.

A huge disappointment compared to earlie models

by Pappy from central florida on September 16, 2020

This 2020 Odyssey EXL is a huge disappointment. Road noise and engine noise is intolerable. The ride is stiff and rough. Comfort is lacking, not much better than an economy airplane seat. Interior ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
