Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsDespite a defeat button for traction control, I couldn't manage to get any wheelspin -- especially if I overlapped gas/brake application. Linear acceleration up to about 4,000 rpm where there's a slight VTEC camminess that's mostly heard rather than felt. Every upshift occurred at redline.
Braking ratingAverage
Braking commentsModerately firm pedal from first through fifth (final) stop from 60. Moderate dive, quiet ABS, good fade resistance. Did I just write that about a Honda? Obviously, reengineering the brakes has been part of the new redesign.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsSlalom: Still feels more athletic than the tires will allow, and it certainly feels more nimble than a minivan should. Steering reaction direct and the Odyssey's ability to rotate slightly quells understeer. It can be driven very aggressively with stability control off, but with stability control on, it's safe as houses. Skid pad: Crazy howling tires all the way around the circle with stability control off. Steering feels natural and weighted appropriately. With stability control on there are slight throttle and brake corrections.
