Car Overview

With last year’s redesign, the Honda Odyssey was already the almost-perfect family vehicle making it one of the best in its class.  But for the year 2012, Honda Odyssey comes back even looking more perfect than ever. Honda took all of last year’s main complaints very well and returned with a new appeal and a new target. The 2012 Honda Odyssey now boasts of a very engaging performance, family-friendly interior, tech-savvy features, and great crash test scores.

Who would not want this amazing minivan when almost every reviewer is highly recommending it?  Even minivan non-believers and critics almost immediately converted after test driving the 2012 Honda Odyssey.

The great thing about this vehicle is that they have combined the roominess and comfort of a minivan along with clever and high technology features with a dynamically competent power.

A Reliable Family Wagon

Not only is the 2012 Honda Odyssey comfortable, roomy, and reliable, it holds great value in the automotive industry making it a very good investment.  With a capacity of up to eight passengers, your kids, friends, and extended family will surely be entertained with a very modern entertainment system.

As Honda’s main target for Odyssey are families, they have created a very family-focused package with smart details and engineering to keep everyone safe and create a stress-free environment.  Interior features an upscale and expensive look rivaling that of Acura’s interior.

Car-Like Performance and Handling

The 2012 Honda Odyssey definitely gives the best steering and handling among all the minivans in the automotive market today.  With car-like performance and very responsive handling, test drivers have nothing else to say but that it is just simply downright fun.

Despite the fact that minivans are not really geared up for much performance, the 2012 Honda Odyssey does well with either of two available transmissions on the 3.5-liter V6.  Aside from that, it gives consumers a greener option with the six-speed automatic transmission getting an EPA rating of 19/28 mpg city/highway while the five-speed automatic gets 18/27 mpg respectively.
