2011 Honda Odyssey: Mini In The Way It Drives
July 04, 2011
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.
