Review: 2019 Honda Odyssey

SUVs have taken the market by storm and it’s not uncommon to see families traveling in a three-row SUV. A major difference between an SUV and a minivan is that a minivan offers you much more room for both storage and passengers. Here, we’re going to take a look at the 2019 Honda Odyssey and go over a few key features that we think should put the 2019 Odyssey at the top of your consideration list.

Trim Levels and Performance

The Honda Odyssey was completely redesigned in 2018 so it remains relatively unchanged in 2019. There are six different trim levels to choose from: LX, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi/RES, Touring, and Elite. Some of our favorite key features that come standard are: two USB ports, a seven-speaker audio system, third-row seats that fold into the rear cargo area, power-adjustable front seats, push-start ignition, a 5-inch infotainment screen, Bluetooth, and 18-inch wheels.

Regardless of what trim level you choose, your 2019 Odyssey will be front-wheel drive. It’s powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Whether you opt for the standard nine-speed automatic or the 10-speed automatic, your 2019 Odyssey will deliver 19/28 miles per gallon.

Safety and Technology

If you’re looking for a family vehicle like the 2019 Odyssey, chances are that safety is very important to you. Of course, Honda knows that your new Odyssey will be carrying precious cargo so they went above and beyond to make sure that everyone will stay safe when riding in the Odyssey. The 2019 Honda Odyssey with specific headlights was name a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pickby the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2019 Odyssey also received the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

As we mentioned above, a 5-inch infotainment center comes standard. You can choose to upgrade to an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Another new feature that we love is the Cabin Talk system, which allows drivers to easily, and safely, keep an eye on backseat passengers as well as giving the driver the ability to communicate with those sitting in the back row.

When it comes to minivans, Honda is making one of the best ones in the market. The 2019 Honda Odyssey will give you quick acceleration, a roomy interior, solid fuel economy, and the peace of mind knowing that you’re driving an incredibly safe vehicle.
