The good thing about minivans becoming less popular is automakers are putting more effort into making their minivan relevant in a world dominated by mid-size or larger SUVs. Honda hasn’t held back at all with the 2021 Honda Odyssey. The latest version of the long-running Honda minivan is loaded with safety, convenience, and entertainment technology. It is also worth exploring for its updated styling.
The fifth generation of the Honda Odyssey may have begun just a few years ago back in 2018, but the 2021 Honda Odyssey gets some exterior refreshing to keep it on the cutting edge of minivan appeal. The enhancements to the vehicle’s design is not just for looks either, as chrome on the doors helps prevent dings and dents to the body panel.
The rail for the powered sliding door is also hidden under the window that now features a wraparound design, making it strikingly sleek. The chart below highlights some non-cosmetic features anyone considering the 2021 Honda Odyssey should know about.

It’s hard to imagine any features that could be added to the 2021 Honda Odyssey that could improve it.

Including the extensive Honda Sensing® Suite of safety technology standard will doubtless be attractive to all car shoppers. The entertainment systems and convenience technologies are unparalleled and can turn the 2021 Honda Odyssey in the favorite car despite it being a minivan.
