Would You Spend $50,000 On A Fully Loaded Honda Odyssey?

In case you’re wondering how a minivan can cost as much as a premium crossover, well, you’re not alone.

Then again, models such as the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna or Chrysler Pacifica are all excellent at their job, offering high levels of comfort, practicality, safety and connectivity, the latter of which which can go a long way towards keeping the kids occupied.

This, the 2018 Odyssey, is a perfect example of just how advanced modern-day minivans are. Not only does it have a bunch of interesting design elements on the outside, it’s also packed full of excellent features inside, meant to make your life easier – the CabinWatch and CabinTalk systems being perfect examples.

While the Odyssey can be remarkably versatile when it comes to seating conditions and overall comfort, on the road it’s pretty much what you would expect from a vehicle of this size. In other words, it leans in the corners and you definitely won’t be mistaking its steering feel for that of a sports car.

In a straight line, DeMuro found it surprisingly quick for a minivan, but it’s unlikely that pure performance is a deciding factor in this segment.

Overall, the 2018 Honda Odyssey, in Elite trim, comes close to being a sort of “luxury minivan” according to this reviewer, who also says that this is currently the minivan to have, despite strong competition from Toyota and FCA.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I wouldn’t pay more than $45,000 for one

  • IT LOOKS LIKE THEY THOUGHT OUT ALL THE DETAILS.

    • Honda NSX-R

      Odysseys are well thought out vans, and they’re meant to be imo

  • LWOAP

    Hmm……NO!

    I’d get an SUV instead and then roll it trying to drive over a BMW in a fit of road rage. 🙂

    Pacifica is worth the 50k because u get twice as more then what u get in the honda.

  • TheBelltower

    A van with a vacuum cleaner, fake vinyl stitching and smokers vents on the windows…. oh yeah, take my money!

    • Honda NSX-R

      Plus a cabin microphone and camera!

    The new styling avoids the big mistakes of the last one that made the back part look like it was welded on from another vehicle – the beltline dip is no longer right at the door shutline. But the whole thing is a lot of unmotivated slashes and sculpting and ups and downs for no reason. Probably they work well, and Honda finally decided that hiding the sliding door track like Chrysler thought of about two decades ago was a good idea.

    I recently drove a Chrysler van (the new one – the old one was pretty awful) and a new Toyota Sienna. There was really no comparison. Various reviews are right: the Chrysler is much nicer. Maybe the Honda is as nice, also being a new design. Of course there’s the Chrysler reliability record….
