Many owners are parents who looked for a minivan and liked the Odyssey's features. Our kids are grown, no grandkids yet, and I'm a businessman.
We wanted a luxury car that would seat up to 8 adult family members or haul bikes or kayaks inside it.
We got it all.
We relied on owner/reviewers in Edmunds who often mentioned "comfort," "quiet," "room," "ride" and "handling."
We bought the Touring Elite, but any model from EX-L up is a luxury car.
The truffle interior on ours is dark grey/brown that has a rich look but also will hide dirt and marks.
Every detail has been thought out and designed to be practical.
The amount of technology is incredible.
Chose it over Sienna and Enclave.
Comfortable seats, quiet inside, roominess in all three rows, audio/RES, blind spot indicator (Elite only), high MPG rating.
Air conditioned seats, AWD.
Don't change anything else!
