Spacious, family-friendly travel gets a high-tech twist in the 2019 Honda Odyssey. In terms of family-friendly travel, the minivan still rules the roads. With more cargo space than an SUV and spacious accommodations for eight passengers, the Odyssey can't help but make the wish list of big families everywhere.
Why buy the 2019 Honda Odyssey?
All three rows are adult-friendly, so there's plenty of space for your growing progeny. Behind the rear seats, you'll find 32.8 cubic feet for family sporting goods and shopping bags. Flip down the rear seats and the Odyssey delivers up to 144.9 cubic feet - more than enough space for home improvement supplies and furniture finds.
What family-friendly features are available?
Of course, every Odyssey comes standard with three rows of roomy seating. Whether you're running errands around town or planning a road trip, you'll be pleased to note that this minivan supplies spacious comfort for the entire family.
The Odyssey is also home to all the latest in family-friendly technology. On upper trims, you'll find a rear-seat entertainment system. Its 10.2-inch overhead screen displays Blu-ray discs and features an HDMI input for game consoles. Once your kids agree on what to watch, this system has the potential to keep them happily occupied for hours. The Odyssey also offers a 110-volt power outlet, so your kids can charge up their laptops and tablets for the long haul. Once charged, they can use the onboard Wi-Fi hotspot to watch their favorite YouTube channels.
Is the 2019 Honda Odyssey fuel-efficient?
In the minivan segment, the Honda Odyssey has a reputation for strong power and a smooth ride. When you need a little extra juice to merge onto highways or pass slower vehicles, the V-6 powertrain is on your side. That said, the Odyssey nicely balances its enthusiastic performance with modern fuel economy. The Odyssey earns 19 city/28 highway mpg, so you can transport your family without going over budget.*
Is this minivan safe?
The 2019 Honda Odyssey puts your family's safety first, bringing its A-game with pristine crash-test scores. In government crash tests, this minivan earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. Although the 2019 Odyssey has yet to undergo crash tests at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it's widely expected to be a top performer. Last year, the IIHS named the Odyssey as one of its 2018 Top Safety Picks.**
The Odyssey also bolsters your peace of mind with safety-oriented technology, such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The lane departure warning and lane keeping assist feature make sure you stay the course. Blind-spot monitoring notifies you about any vehicles lurking out of sight, helping you avoid needless collisions. Best of all, all of these features are standard equipment for all but the base Odyssey LX, upgrading passenger protection at a fair price.
