2021 Honda Odyssey – Drive Review

Honda says the Odyssey is America’s best retail-selling minivan for 10 years running. American consumers have purchased more than 1.1 million Odyssey minivans during that time.

The Honda Odyssey has been refreshed for 2021 with numerous updates to styling, along with upgraded technology and safety features.

I’m convinced, and not alone in the thinking, that a minivan is the best vehicle to have if a family has toddlers. It is the most user-friendly and versatile vehicle for transporting those children.
