2017 Honda Odyssey Review
Whenever drivers with growing families ask the Pat Peck Honda team for recommendations, there’s always one vehicle that immediately jumps to mind: the Honda Odyssey. Not only is this minivan highly safe, but it also has the comfort and performance specs to keep any driver happy.
If you’re wondering how the 2017 Honda Odyssey will fare out on those Gulf Port, Long Beach, and Biloxi streets, you’ll want to check out this review. We’ll break everything down for you.
2017 Honda Odyssey: Safety First
The top priority of any family vehicle should be occupant protection. This is especially true in a minivan such as the 2017 Honda Odyssey, where structural reinforcements and technology blend to complete a deft safety array.
Like all vehicles in the Honda lineup, the Odyssey comes built with Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™). The purpose of all ACE™ bodies is to both deflect and absorb as much impact force as possible. This is achieved mainly by way of their dynamic crumple zones.
The Odyssey also comes with technology like Vehicle Stability Assist™ and the Traction Control System. These are a huge help when you’re driving on less than favorable roads.
Of course, intuitive safety features can be a big help too. In some Odyssey trims, you’ll have access to Honda Sensing®. This suite uses sensors and small cameras to monitor and react to the roads for you.
Balanced 2017 Honda Odyssey Performance
In spite of certain minivan stigmas, drivers will be surprised at how smoothly the 2017 Honda Odyssey is able to balance its performance. In this vehicle, you should have a satisfying blend of power and efficiency.
Under the hood of the Odyssey, drivers will find a 3.5L V6 engine. In order to curb its size, this engine comes with i-VTEC® and drive-by-wire electronic throttle technology. These allow the Odyssey to seamlessly generate 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, this minivan also comes with Eco Assist™ and a 6-speed automatic transmission. With these additions, the Odyssey can still maintain 19 city/ 27 highway MPG.1
The Functional Honda Odyssey Interior
There’s a good chance that your 2017 Honda Odyssey will become a road trip vehicle. In which case, you’re going to need the space to accommodate both your family and all your luggage.
In total, the 2017 Odyssey offers 172.6 cubic feet of space for passengers, as well as 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row. However, to maximize space, you can also fold over your 60/40 Split 3rd-Row Magic Seat®.
Up front, drivers will have an 8-way power-adjustable seat keeping them comfy, and second-row passengers will have the Wide-Mode Adjustable 2nd-Row Seats with Armrests & Walk-In Feature. These special seats were designed to expand passenger room even further.
