Kelley Blue Book's Expert Review of the all-new Honda Odyssey nicely describes this minivan: "Honda's minivan is once again the very best minivan money can buy. It's enjoyably easy to drive, nicely appointed inside, and boasts a long list of clever new features and tech that take family transportation to a new level. The best minivan on the road? Let's call it the best family car ever." A combination of user-friendly, thoughtful touches, a roomy interior and consistent reliability also contribute to this year's nod as the minivan Best Resale Value Award winner for 2018.
Its interior offers what most families want in a vehicle: a spacious cabin that seats up to eight people, easily accessible second and third rows, and plenty of space for storage. Yet the Odyssey goes the extra mile, with innovative touches that are welcome additions to those who seek a practical people-hauler. The Magic Slide second row's outboard seats adjust side to side, meaning kids can sit separately if they choose. The HondaVac cargo area-mounted vacuum cleaner is also available.
The cabin is filled with modern tech and safety, surrounded by upscale materials and made with excellent build quality. CabinWatch is an in-cabin camera that can show you what the kids are up to, and Cabin Talk lets the driver broadcast his/her voice through the rear speakers to put a stop to any shenanigans. And the Honda Sensing suite of safety features comes standard.
The Odyssey is also fuel-efficient, responsive, and comfortable on the road. Given all its virtues, it's no surprise that this minivan is projected to have the highest resale value in its class.
