2016 Honda Odyssey redesign
The 2016 Honda Odyssey has a few unconventional design choices which it carries from previous models for some time now. This doesn’t have to be bad, however, especially since rear quarter window looks good being set lower than the rest. There are a few unconventional creases as well, but otherwise, Honda’s signature grille with angular headlamps and evenly shaped rear end look as good as they can. As before it is available in 6 trim levels: base LX, EX, SE, EX-L ,Touring and Touring Elite.
|Track (front / rear)||68.1 in / 68.2 in|
|Towing Capacity||3500 lbs|
|Cargo Volume||38.4 cu ft (behind 3rd-row)
93.1 cu ft (behind 2nd-row)
148.5 cu ft (behind 1st-row)
Odyssey still keeps dual screen dashboard layout which, although confusing at times, has its advantages. 8-inch touch screen display is standard from the get-go, which is nice to know, and navigation is standard piece of equipment, albeit exclusively with the top, Touring models. Interior refinement, however, isn’t exactly top class. Whole cabin has this plastic feel to it which could have been avoided. Good thing is that half of available models (top ones) offer perforated leather seats which change the picture drastically. The Honda Odyssey 2016 is fitted with high-tech features and plenty of commodities. Among the features are basic or ultra wide rear seat entertainment systems, standard in Touring or Touring Elite models respectively. Blind spot information system is offered this way too, while forward collision warning, lane departure warning and multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines can be had with EX-L models as well.
