With a huge, flexible interior, exceptional comfort and a long list of features, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is a do-it-all machine.
This perennial popular American family hauler comes in six trim levels to choose from, so there's an Odyssey for every budget, especially when considering more recent used models.
Honda keeps its pricing strategy simple for the Odyssey. Each model increases the level of standard equipment at staggered pricing intervals, and there are only a couple of options. The LX, for example, kicks off the Odyssey's value proposition, bundling must-have features such as Bluetooth phone/audio connectivity and a rearview camera with nice extras including touchscreen infotainment and power seats.
The EX marks the first step into the Odyssey's upper reaches with eight-passenger seating (the LX seats only seven), a removable front center console that improves passage from the front to rear of the cabin, and enhanced tech and safety features. The SE is a short step up from the EX and offers a rear-seat entertainment system and the nifty vacuum feature for a little more cost.
For the EX-L, the vacuum and rear seat entertainment inexplicably go away, but are replaced by other niceties like heated leather seats, a power liftgate and driver safety aids. Priced right about in the middle of the Odyssey lineup, the EX-L should hit the sweet spot for most buyers. You can add on a rear-seat entertainment system or a navigation system, but not both.
Moving up to the Touring model breaches what most might consider the entry-luxury price barrier but packs in almost everything else the Odyssey has to offer, including both the navigation and rear-seat entertainment system. With 18-inch wheels and foglights, it also looks a bit more stylish.
Finally, the Touring Elite throws it all in for a fully loaded rolling family sanctuary. The vacuum makes a return, the rear-seat entertainment is upgraded with a widescreen display and HDMI input, and the standard stereo becomes a surround system. For about the price of a nice European luxury sedan, it might be overkill for most buyers, but it's the one to get if you want to leave nothing on the table.
