Which Odyssey does Edmunds recommend?

If you're on a budget, we recommend the EX trim. For not a lot more money, you get active safety features and driver aids, conveniences such as power-sliding doors and three-zone climate control, and the desirable second-row Magic Slide seats. If you're looking for more, try the Touring, which gives you tons of extra features — including a built-in vacuum cleaner and rear-seat monitoring system — and the excellent 10-speed automatic transmission.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

8.1 / 10

The SUV may be a popular solution to the vehicular needs of a family, but in truth SUV buyers are missing out on the unparalleled packaging and capability of the modern minivan. No SUV can match the 2019 Honda Odyssey for ease of use or flexibility. It doesn't hurt that the Odyssey comes standard with a strong V6 and comfortable seats and has a list of available features longer than a junior-high choir recital.

The current generation of Odyssey debuted just last year, and it either added or evolved a slew of features that parents or practically minded people should appreciate. The configurable second-row seats are sure to be a favorite, and the night-vision-equipped, zoomable cabin camera makes checking in on passengers a cinch. Remember, it's never too soon to teach your kids about panopticism.

This 2019 Odyssey is, in most ways, a cut above the competition. It seasons Honda's clever packaging with the carmaker's sharp driving characteristics, making for a vehicle that's a thoughtful and enjoyable family hauler. Three-row SUV owners won't know what they're missing.

You can find out even more about the upgrades to this generation of Odyssey in our First Drive.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon as one of Edmunds' Best Family Cars for this year.

2019 Honda Odyssey models

The 2019 Odyssey comes in six trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, EX-L with Navi and RES, Touring and Elite. In typical Honda fashion, there aren't any packages or stand-alone options offered so finding the Odyssey you want largely comes down to picking a trim that matches your desired features and budget. All Odysseys come with a 3.5-liter V6 (280 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque) and front-wheel drive. The first four trim levels come with a nine-speed automatic and the Touring and Elite have a 10-speed automatic. There's seating for seven passengers in the LX and eight passengers in everything else.

The Odyssey LX starts you off with features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, a 5-inch central display screen, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a seven-speaker sound system.

Next up is the EX, and it's here you get features that really start to make your life easier. These include power-sliding rear doors, keyless ignition and entry, remote engine start, three-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, enhanced sliding functionality for the second-row outboard seats (Magic Slide), a removable center seat and second-row window sunshades. The EX also has more modern tech with its 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and satellite and HD radio. But, wait, there's more! Honda also fits this trim level with extra driver safety aids that include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist.

Honda starts to crank up the luxury with the EX-L. You get a sunroof, a noise-reducing windshield, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, driver-seat memory settings, and two charging USB ports for the second row.

The EX-L with Navigation and Rear Entertainment System is similar but adds, as its name implies, a navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system. The latter includes a 10.2-inch overhead display, a Blu-ray player and an HDMI input. This version of the EX-L also has a 110-volt power outlet and a cabin intercom system, which broadcasts the driver's or front passenger's voice to the rear seating areas.

Moving up to the Odyssey Touring gets you the above, plus front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights, automatic engine stop-start, a hands-free liftgate, an integrated vacuum cleaner, a rear-cabin camera monitoring system (CabinWatch), and an onboard 4G LTE connection with a Wi-Fi hotspot and HondaLink services.

Finally, the Elite tops off the Odyssey range with 19-inch wheels, power-folding mirrors, noise-reducing glass for the front and rear windows, ventilated front seats, an 11-speaker premium audio system and a wireless phone charger.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Honda Odyssey Elite (3.5L V6 | 10-speed automatic | FWD).

Scorecard

Overall8.1 / 10
Driving8.0
Comfort8.0
Interior8.5
Utility9.0
Technology8.0

Driving

8.0
The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the driver's choice in the minivan class. A strong V6 gives you plenty of power for passing, while the van's precise steering and stable handling instill confidence. It's still by all accounts squarely a minivan, but it rarely seems that way from the driver's seat.

Acceleration

8.0
There's a lot of parity in the minivan class, but the Odyssey's V6 stands out with its smoothness and willingness to rev. Even with passengers aboard, the Odyssey's V6 makes quick work of accelerating up to highway speeds or passing traffic, taking just 7.6 seconds to get up to 60 mph.

Braking

7.5
In routine driving, the brake pedal is easy to modulate and has solid stopping power. Panic braking reveals a soft initial pedal feel, firming up appropriately with pressure. We achieved consistent emergency stops from 60 mph in a respectable 123 feet.

Steering

8.0
At lower speeds, the Odyssey has precise, relatively quick steering that's light for easy parking-lot maneuvering. At highway speeds, steering reactions calm down for stability. There's little on-center feel but it tracks straight, has good feedback, and is still responsive to small steering inputs.

Handling

8.5
If handling is important to you, the Odyssey is easily the segment leader. It's communicative and responsive, which makes wheeling around town in a minivan more fun than it ought to be. The suspension is also able to handle bumpy roads without ever feeling overwhelmed.

Drivability

8.0
Ten speeds might seem excessive, but the transmission's quick shifting is unobtrusive and good at selecting the best gear for your needs. Paddle shifters are standard, which is a nice touch, too. The V6's auto stop-start system is a little rough at times, but it can be disabled if desired.

Comfort

8.0
We like how the Odyssey is comfortable in all three rows of seating. Whether you've got a van full of kids on a road trip or you're just taking your friends out to dinner, the Odyssey should keep everyone happy.

Seat comfort

8.0
The front seats are comfortable and supportive, so they're perfect for logging a lot of miles. The second row's outboard seats are similarly comfy with soft padding and thin folding armrests. The third row is acceptable for adults on shorter trips, though footroom is limited.

Ride comfort

7.0
In general, the Odyssey rides smoothly over bumps. The suspension tuning is a little firmer than the norm, however, and that stiffness, along with the Elite's 19-inch wheels, means it can get a little jittery over rough pavement.

Noise & vibration

8.0
In Elite trim, the Odyssey is superbly quiet at highway speeds. Credit goes to the active noise cancellation system and the new noise-reducing body and windshield and windows. The 10-speed auto keeps engine rpm low at cruising speed, too.

Climate control

8.0
Automatic tri-zone climate is standard on most Odysseys, as are heated front seats. The front air vents blow hard if you crank up the fan speed. The second row's air vents are mounted in the door pillar rather than overhead, so it's hard to direct air to kids in rear-facing safety seats.

Interior

8.5
A minivan should make your life easier, and the Odyssey comes through in stellar fashion. It's easy to get in and out, particularly because of the new lateral sliding function for the second-row seats. The mediocre outward visibility is the only downside.

Ease of use

9.0
All main controls that you frequently use are physical buttons, and the layout is logical. The gauge cluster is almost all digital, and it presents information in a clear manner. Power-sliding doors come standard on EX models and up.

Getting in/getting out

9.5
Sliding rear doors win over a crossover's traditional doors for ease of use every time. Up front, it's easy to slip into the seats without so much of a level change. The front doors need a good tug to close, though. The multi-sliding second-row seat gives superb access to the third-row seat.

Driving position

8.0
It's a natural driving position and, at times, the driving experience is surprisingly sedanlike. The driver's seat has a lot of adjustment range for vertical and horizontal. The steering wheel has a broad range of manual adjustability. There isn't a lot of room to stretch in the footwell, though.

Roominess

9.0
The Odyssey is one of the most effective people movers you can get. There is room for adults in all three rows. Legroom is plentiful in second row. The reclining third row is adequate for full-size adults, but it's on the cozy side. Space behind the third row is deep and wide.

Visibility

6.0
It's a little hard to gauge where the front ends, and the view over the shoulder can be blocked by the second-row headrests. The front pillars and mirrors are of typical minivan size, but Honda doesn't offer a surround-view camera system, which is its only real weakness.

Quality

8.0
Overall, the Odyssey looks modern and upscale inside, with leather seats and soft-touch material on most surfaces that you come in contact with. Everything is solidly put together with consistent panel gaps and tolerances; there were no squeaks or rattles during our test period.

Utility

9.0
The Odyssey is still great at being a minivan. It seats up to eight passengers and has plenty of room for your personal items and bigger and bulkier cargo. The second-row seatbacks don't fold flat, so the whole seat will have to be removed manually for maximum cargo space.

Small-item storage

9.0
There's plenty of small-item storage. Up front, there's a spot below the center stack for handbags, and the center storage bin is huge. Thirsty? You've got cupholders everywhere for all the rows.

Cargo space

9.0
The storage well behind the third row is always useful for grocery bags. Those third-row seats aren't power-operated, but the strap and handle system is easy enough to use. Max capacity is above average at 155.8 cubic feet. The second-row seats are bulky and hard to remove.

Child safety seat accommodation

9.0
LATCH anchor points are easily accessible for the second- and third-row outboard seats. We've yet to test the Odyssey with the second-row middle seat installed. The sliding second-row seat feature is super helpful. The seat contouring is flat, and there's plenty of room for rear-facing safety seats.

Technology

8.0
Up front is an 8-inch touchscreen display that runs Honda's latest software system. It boasts modern graphics and is impressively quick to respond to your finger touches and slides. Modern features such as the rear cabin camera and the intercom are useful.

Smartphone integration

7.5
The Odyssey comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Higher trims like this have two second-row USB charge ports.

Driver aids

5.5
Adaptive cruise control is laggy and doesn't feature stop-and-go capability. It will probably frustrate anyone following you. Lane keeping also feels subpar, with weak intervention and guidance that ping-pongs you within your lane. Lane departure and blind-spot warning work perfectly.

Voice control

7.0
Voice controls work with navigation, front-row entertainment and telephone systems. While you don't have to follow a specific script, it works better when you know its structure. A long press on the voice button provides access to your smartphone voice control system.

Most helpful consumer reviews

4 out of 5 stars, Pretty Good Minivan
Stan W,
Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 10A)

The Odyssey Touring and Elite's 10 speed transmission is nicely matched to the engine, giving this van very good acceleration, better than all other minivans and the vast majority of the SUV's. The interior is quite nice, the entertainment system sounds very good, Android phone connectivity works well, both Google Maps & Waze from my phone displayed on the screen. Noise level is pretty low for a minivan, handling is acceptable, braking performance and feel are very good for a minivan. It has lots of outlets, 110VAC, 12V and USB chargers. The few negative points are the accelerator has a huge dead spot at the beginning of travel, takes a while to get use to. The front passenger seat was a little high above the floor for my wife (5' 3") making her thighs a bit tire on long trips, they're perfectly comfortable for me (5' 10"), the driver seat is adjustable, so no problems for either of us. And the seat back on the 2nd row doesn't fold down flat against the seat, somewhat compromising its ability to haul stuff, the 2nd row seats are also pretty heavy, making it difficult to remove if you wanted to haul larger items. The fit is also not as good as I've come to expect from Honda, the doors and hood all have somewhat uneven gaps, some less visible interior panels also didn't fit well. Lots of glare on the entertainment / navigation display, I may make my own leather over-hang shade to deal with this shortcoming. The cruse control worked reasonable well, but a little too aggressive at slowing down if another vehicle merged in front or us. The lane keeping assistant is not very effective. Blind spot detection worked fine. Also with the strong engine coupled with the 10 speed transmission, one could smoke the front tire all day. Could really use a limited slip differential to distribute the power between both front tires better, especially from a stand still on a Right turn.

3 out of 5 stars, Frustrated
EWhit,
EX-L w/Navigation and Rear Entertainment System 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 9A)

I have been a Honda owner for 9 years now. I still own my 2010 Honda CRV and we just traded my husbands truck for the 2019 Odyssey EX-L for our family of four. We had the van less than 48 hours and the radio stopped working. No audio sound played whatsoever. The rear camera also no longer worked. I assumed it was just our ignorance and went to google and YouTube to find the fix the problem and discovered a slew of complaints and a class action lawsuit against 2018-2019 Honda Odysseys and Pilots. Then, I left something in my car after dark over the weekend and went out to get it and the display screen was on and wouldn't shut off. When we contacted the GA dealership about returning the car we were told they had not heard of this issue and that we could not return the van due to a non “cooling off” period bc the sale was final. After another 24 hours went by I woke up and our battery was dead due to the display screen not shutting off. I have since found additional forums and articles stating the issue is connecting an iPhone 8 and up to the Apple Car Play will create these issues. It is unsure at this point if this issue with Honda/Apple is resolved. We are going for a software update today and will see what happens. Otherwise if this is a reoccurring issue I guess we will have to try to return the vehicle based off of the Georgia Lemon Law.

4 out of 5 stars, Excellent, except......
Jax,
Elite 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 10A)

I've read the reviews, including Edmunds. Sounds like a few folks got lemons, others, poor dealerships. First, my response to Edmunds review. We purchased the Elite. The seats are very comfortable, especially the ventilation feature for here in Florida. But The road noise is terrible. It sounds so loud that it's hard to carry on a conversation, or listen to the superb sound system. With only 1100 miles, I fault the tires, Bridgestone Turanza. The noise was terrible initially. I recalled that some dealers overinflated tires to prevent flat spots. I checked; my tires were 46 PSI.! Despite the checklist showing that was cleared. Lowering the pressure to 33 PSI reduced the noise considerably but a significant amount remains. One ding. The navigation is not useful. Street names are not shown, nor is current traffic related to the location of the vehicle. 2 dings. The automatic engine shut off is annoying and has to be disabled each ride. A few reviews mention the rear seat is difficult to remove. I agree it is well made (heavy) but this is my second Odyssey and there's a short learning curve. The interior is enormous. With one rear seat removed our Great Pyrenees easily gets in and out. A few notes: Headlights are excellent. Side vehicle alerts are very noticeable. Handling is far superior to our 2010 Odyssey, and braking is greatly improved. I recommend driving the vehicle after a purchase and ignoring the tech gadgets. Familiarize yourself with basic operation then play with the other stuff cause they can be as distracting as texting. I'll update the review as miles accumulate.

3 out of 5 stars, Electrical problems
WINSTON RAJENDRAM,
Elite 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 10A)

We purchased the Elite trim. We have had the car for 10 months now and the entire audio/video system shut off. Apparently Honda has had multiple complaints about this. I would stay away until they can figure this out. I’m thinking if you get the base trim it should be fine but there is too much technology in the Elite and everything stopped. Rear view camera is not working also, no Bluetooth, no Apple car play, rear entertainment shut down (my kids are pissed as am I). I’m scheduled for service tomorrow morning. I will provide an update.

Honda Odyssey vs. the competition

Honda Odyssey vs. Chrysler Pacifica

The Odyssey's strong V6 engine and nimble handling make it a little more enjoyable to drive than the Pacifica. It's also a better choice if you have young children in child safety seats because of its Magic Slide second-row seats. On the other hand, Chrysler's Stow 'n Go second-row seats conveniently fold flat into the floor, which makes it a better van if you frequently haul a lot of bulky cargo.

Compare Honda Odyssey & Chrysler Pacifica features

Honda Odyssey vs. Toyota Sienna

The Odyssey was fully redesigned last year, while the 2018 Sienna hasn't had a full redesign since 2011. As such, the Odyssey has a more stylish cabin and fresher look. Both have healthy, reliable V6 engines, but the Honda gives you a better sense of the road when you're driving around turns. But if all-wheel drive is important to you, then the Sienna is your only choice among minivans. Note that a redesigned Sienna could be coming for the 2019 model year.

Compare Honda Odyssey & Toyota Sienna features

Honda Odyssey vs. Honda Pilot

For shoppers who are looking for a comfortable people and cargo hauler but who want to sidestep a minivan, the obvious choice is a popular crossover SUV such as Honda's own Pilot. With lots of space, a versatile interior and even a bit of off-road capability, the Pilot is appealing for all sorts of reasons. It's also capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds and comfortably carrying eight passengers. For easy entry and exit and maximum cargo space, though, the Odyssey is still tops.

More about the 2019 Honda Odyssey

The 2019 Honda Odyssey can do it all thanks to its large, flexible interior, comfortable seats, and extensive inventory of technology and convenience features. The Odyssey raises the bar on the minivan, making the unglamorous people mover almost glamorous. With a wide range of trims to choose from, there's an Odyssey for most budgets.

Honda keeps its trim levels straightforward for the Odyssey. Each model adds more standard equipment at staggered pricing intervals, and the options are a just a handful. The LX kicks off the Odyssey's lineup by bundling must-have features such as Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera with nice extras, including touchscreen infotainment and power front seats, all at an accessible price for the segment. A V6 engine producing 280 horsepower is standard, as is a nine-speed automatic transmission. It's definitely a more generous definition of "entry level."

The EX is a big step up in features, making it an appealing value proposition. You get eight-passenger seating (the LX seats only seven), power-sliding rear doors, improved infotainment and smartphone integration, and a host of advanced driver safety aids, including forward collision warning and mitigation. For the EX-L, Honda adds leather seating, a power liftgate and a few other features. You can additionally get the EX-L with a navigation system and a rear entertainment system.

The Odyssey Touring and Elite are the top of the heap. The Touring has all of the above, plus parking sensors, a 10-speed automatic transmission, LED headlights, automatic engine stop-start, an integrated vacuum cleaner, a rear-cabin camera monitoring system and an onboard 4G LTE connection. On the Elite, you also get 19-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, an 11-speaker premium audio system and a wireless phone charger.

If you're on a budget or just looking for a great value, the EX is the way to go. The LX is cheaper, but paying a little more for the EX makes a lot of sense considering its extra features. If you want leather, you'll need to get the EX-L, but at that point we think you might as well start looking at the Touring or the Elite. Of course, now pricing is entering luxury sedan territory, but it's a similar story for rival minivans. If a 2019 Honda Odyssey might be in your future, let Edmunds help you find the perfect one.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Honda Odyssey?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
