Starting at an affordable price, expect to get competitive mileage out of the Odyssey with EPA-estimated 19 city and up to 27 mpg on the highway.

  1. How can the interior be kept clean?
    Reply

    The never-ending challenge of keeping a vehicle clean that carries kids around town can be taxing. The Odyssey just made it a little easier with the onboard HondaVac -- a vaccuum located in the side of the rear cargo area. Removable catch tray can be emptied and long hose with attachments is able to reach all the way to the front row seating. Never waste cash and time at the car wash again.

  2. Can hands-free phone calls be placed using Bluetooth?
    Reply

    By using an Android or iPhone with Bluetooth, simply connect to onboard system and use dash mounted touch screen to access popular apps, contact lists and favorite music. Never use the keypad to dial, answer, or hang up. Voice activated commands do all that for the driver.

  3. How many can fit into the Honda Odyssey?
    Reply

    The 2017 Honda Odyssey minivan can fit up to eight people when the second-row center console is folded down to accommodate a center seat. The 40/20/40 split second row and 60/40 split third row ensure the most can be made out of spacious cargo and passenger cabin without sacrificing seating capacity of an entire row.

  4. How easy is it to reconfigure the cargo area?
    Reply

    When a little extra space is needed in the rear, the third-row Magic Seat flips down and stows in the floor with the pull of a single lever. That leaves a flat floor for easy loading of extra big load of groceries or sports equipment without having to remove an entire row of seats. Of course, if all 148.5 cubic feet of cargo room is needed, the passenger seats can be taken out as needed.

  5. How wide is the second row seating?
    Reply

    When the kids get a little older, they need a bit more room to help reduce squabbling during long trips. The second row of the Odyssey has a wide-seat setting that allows the outside seats to be moved toward doors by one and half inches. It doesn't sound like much, but with three in the second row, that extra three inches can feel like feet.

  6. Can the kids get into the third row?
    Reply

    Using a single lever, the second row folds and slides forward allowing rear passenger more room to access the third row seating without tripping over second row seats. This convenient system reduces the chance of injury and helps lower the amount of arguments caused by "who gets the back seat today."

  7. What about on board entertainment?
    Reply

    The available rear seat entertainment system includes a pair of wireless headphones, so the driver doesn't have to listen to the latest cartoons or video game carnage while staying focused on the road. The best-in-class video screen is 16.2 inches wide and produces HD crystal clear video. Even split the screen with dual video inputs to keep everybody happy on those long family trips.

  8. What safety systems does the Odyssey have?
    Reply

    The driver can pilot their minivan with complete confidence using available blind spot detection, lane departure warning and rear cross traffic alerts. Forward collision warning senses obstacles in the road and notifies the driver to help reduce the chance of an accident. Rear view monitors clearly displays what is behind the vehicle when backing on up center mounted screen.
