2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Two Non-Minivan People Ponder the Second Row
October 14, 2011
Believe it or not, there are people who've managed to go almost their entire lives without ever parking butt in a minivan, and it can be interesting to see how these non-minivan people react when dropped into the belly of a relentlessly functional people-mover like our Honda Odyssey.
A couple of friends with almost zero minivan experience recently spent some time in the Odyssey's second row. While they weren't bowled over by the minivan's sheet metal, they had some good things to say about the second row, which impressed them for three primary reasons...
1: Great legroom. They couldn't believe how much space was available for stretching out their legs.
2: Comfortable armrest. The meaty padding on the armrest was a hit.
3: The personal space factor. As you can see, when seating two, the second row allows for quite a bit of room between both passengers. Personal bubbles are maintained -- a luxury you don't always get to enjoy when seated in the second row.
