2016 Honda Odyssey

Pros: Well-balanced driving dynamics; nicely finished interior; class-exclusive integrated vacuum feature; decent fuel mileage for the class

Cons: There are no stand-alone options, so acquiring some desirable features means stepping up to pricey high-end models

CG Says: For 2016, Honda Odyssey gains a new SE model that adds a built-in vacuum cleaner and rear-seat entertainment system to the EX level of standard equipment. Otherwise, Odyssey is unchanged. Odyssey remains a family-friendly vehicle that’s quiet, surprisingly fun to drive, and dynamically competent. The lack of stand-alone options means that many desirable features are available only on the most expensive trim levels, which are quite pricey compared to class competitors. However, this doesn’t stop us from wholeheartedly recommending the Odyssey for those who can benefit from the flexibility a minivan provides.
