Innovative seating and excellent handling make the 2013 Honda Odyssey a standout among its minivan competitors. In fact, the 2013 Honda Odyssey is the benchmark of a minivan relevant to today's modern families that others are struggling to follow behind. This minivan is neither stale nor behind on modern technology.
It performs more like a car than a SUV or minivan. Thanks to its 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine and 247-horsepower, it accelerates strongly to change lanes and pass other vehicles. This confidence is due to the 250 pound-feet of torque in all 2013 Honda Odyssey models. It has either five or six speed automatic transmission, depending on the trim level.
The interior is where the 2013 Honda Odyssey really stands out. It is loaded with helpful touches like a blind-spot system and an intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) with eight inch display screen. The second and third rows have up to eight seating positions to maximize space for car seats, kids, and full grown adults.
U.S. crash-test ratings prove that the 2013 Honda Odyssey is one of the safest minivan picks, and probably one of the safest picks of any type of vehicle. In fact, it's one of the few large vehicles to earn top ratings from both the IIHS and the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). These top ratings come from its stability control, anti-lock brakes, front side airbags, full-length side curtains, and class-leading six child-seat tether locations and five LATCH locations. The 2013 Honda Odyssey is capable is seating up to five car seats at a time, a truly amazing feature.
