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
