Before we begin distinguishing the new Honda Odyssey trims and enumerating their particular strengths, we should point out that all the models of the new Honda Odyssey are powered by a mighty 3.5L V6 engine that can generate an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway and 19 in the mpg city.* Yet there are crucial differences between the models, too. Without further ado, here they are:
Priced at $29,990 MSRP,** the LX features all of the following:
A third-row Magic Seat, which makes it easy to accommodate your passengers and cargo by allowing you a good deal of control over how you apportion the car’s interior space.
A multi-angle camera, which gives you a comprehensive image of your surroundings, enabling you to make informed decisions next time you’re parallel parking in the city or cruising down the highway.
Priced at $33,860 MSRP,** the EX gives you:
A blind spot information system, which allows you to keep track of vehicles currently in your blind spot and makes it possible for you to avoid serious threats by keeping tabs on the road around you.
Smart Entry, which allows you to open the door before you reach the vehicle courtesy of cutting-edge technology in the form of a sophisticated key fob.
Priced at $37,360 MSRP,** the EX-L builds on the preceding trim with:
A navigation system, which provides you with up-to-the-minute and reliable information about everything from destination locations and travel times to traffic reports and landmarks.
An available rear-seat entertainment system, which allows you to keep everyone in the backseat happy and entertained on even the longest of journeys.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel, which adds a note of luxury to the cabin’s already-distinguished appearance while also making the drive extra easy on the hands.
Priced at $44,510 MSRP,** this model boasts all of the following (and then some!):
18-inch wheels, which make the Odyssey notably sturdy and stable while also promising to turn heads with their scintillating design.
A standard rear-seat entertainment system, replete with game services, DVD player, headphones, and an entire array of modern technologies to keep the kids happily occupied.
Hands-free-access power tailgate, which makes the laborious process of loading the vehicle and unloading it as easy as can be by allowing you to open up the tailgate without even having to put down the bags.
Priced at $46,670 MSRP,** the highest-level trim, the Elite, provides all of the following:
Heated/ventilated front seats, which keep everybody onboard comfortably warm come winter.
A wireless phone charger, enabling you and your passengers to charge up smartphones and stay connected throughout the drive, while also ensuring that you have constant access to your phone’s apps, music, maps, and more.
An 11-speaker audio system for unbeatable sound quality; crisp, clear music; and booming bass.
