2011 Honda Odyssey: Mini In The Way It Drives

July 04, 2011

odyssey_fullsize.JPG If you ever find yourself thinking that today's minivans just aren't very mini anymore, all you need to do is reacquaint yourself with a traditional full-size van. I spent a little bit of time driving the pictured E-150 over the weekend. The dimensional difference isn't huge -- a regular Ford van is roughly a foot taller and longer -- but the Odyssey's "mini-ness" comes about most in the driving experience. It's more maneuverable, easier to drive and more comfortable on the road. It drives like a car. The E-150 drives like the old-school truck that it is.
