For three decades, Honda has set the standard for family vans, and the 2022 Odyssey is no different. From “magic” seats to door lights, we’ll show you what you can expect in the latest model.
Even before you open the doors of a Honda Odyssey, you get a taste of the convenience infused throughout the minivan. As you approach the van and unlock the doors, Welcome Lights shine on the ground around the vehicle so you can avoid mud and puddles as you’re getting in or out.
If you’re loading the van with kids in tow, chances are you’ve got your hands full. The hands-free liftgate lightens your load with the wave of your foot under the back bumper.
Wide-opening power sliding doors and second-row Magic Slide seats give passengers effortless access to the back row. And those removable second-row seats give you several options for carrying people and cargo, plus they easily accommodate front-and rear-facing child car seats.
We know how much havoc kids and pets can have on an interior. Protect your cargo area and rear seats from the ravages of muddy feet and fur with durable, easy-to-clean seat covers and a cargo mat.
No matter where you sit in the Odyssey, you’ll feel like you’re riding first class, starting with exceptional head and legroom. Every trim except the LX and EX comes with a refined leather-appointed interior. And tri-zone climate control with separate second-row controls is available on all but the base Odyssey.
All the Best Tech
When you’ve got a carload of kids, you need the kind of technology that keeps everyone entertained and lets you keep track of back-seat shenanigans.
The Rear Seat Entertainment System with Blu-Ray allows you to stream videos and music. And it connects through wired or wireless headphones, so the little ones can enjoy their tunes, and you can listen to your audiobook or catch up on your favorite podcast.
Did you hear a sudden shriek out of the back? Cabin Watch lets you see what’s going on without having to turn around. And the Cabin Talk feature allows you to talk to back seat passengers through the rear speakers and connected headphones, so you’ll be heard, no matter how hard the tweens try to ignore you.
Honda Makes Sense for Busy Parents
Honda Sensing is arguably the most robust suite of driver assistance technology available. On the Odyssey, you get all the must-have features, plus premium safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Traffic Sign Recognition. The latter feature gathers important navigation information such as the speed limit and displays it on the Driver Information Interface.
A Lot for You in the ‘22
With a refined interior and impressive list of standard features, the Honda Odyssey continues to raise the bar on the competition. If you’re considering a three-row family vehicle, it should be at the top of your test-drive list.
