Honda Odyssey Wins Edmunds' Inside Line Crossover vs. Minivan vs. SUV Comparison Test

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — April 9, 2008 — Inside Line, Edmunds.com's high-speed online car magazine, today announced that the 2008 Honda Odyssey won its Crossover vs. Minivan vs. SUV comparison test described in full at 2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4X4 (MSRP of $43,605 and TMV® of $40,875), equipped with an eight-cylinder, 276-horsepower engine and five-speed shiftable automatic transmission.

"Once you consider that the only vehicle here with sliding doors also boasts the most car-like dynamics and unmatched functionality, the minivan (2008 Honda Odyssey) is once again the vehicle to beat when it comes to real-world family use," said Edmunds' Inside Line Engineering Editor Jason Kavanagh.

The 2008 GMC Acadia came in second place and impressed the editors with its sporty drive, ample interior space and convenience features. The 2008 Toyota Sequoia earned third place, winning praise for its towing and off-road capabilities.
