If you want to buy a new minivan in the golden age of SUVs, the 2021 Honda Odyssey has to be part of your research. While competitors do have vehicles with lots of seats, features, and fun bells and whistles, nothing about the 2021 Honda Odyssey feels empty or extraneous, even at the base trim level. The minivan has five trims, but not a single one falls short of expectations.
The 2021 Honda Odyssey did receive a design refresh despite the design it is based on is only three years old. In an effort to keep the Odyssey relevant or even coveted in an age where people keep choosing SUVs over minivans, the new design is simultaneously beautifully contoured and sharp. The windows have a wraparound design that unites the passenger windows to the rear window in a unified shape. The body lines are pronounced and bold, but remarkable. The chart below shows off just a few of the important highlights for each trim so you can gauge which one you is best suited to you.
|2021 Honda Odyssey LX||Honda Sensing® Safety Technology Suite||Power Adjusting Front Seats|
|2021 Honda Odyssey EX||Magic Slide® 2nd Row Seats||Smart Entry|
|2021 Honda Odyssey EX-L||Leather Trimmed Seats||Power Tailgate|
|2021 Honda Odyssey Touring||Rear Entertainment System||Wi-Fi Hotspot Capability|
|2021 Honda Odyssey Elite||Wireless Phone Charger||HondaVAC® Built-In Vacuum|
The LX trim already has so many features it’s hard to believe it gets any better, but it does. The jump to leather seats with the EX-L will doubtless make it one of the most popular trims. The Touring trim has plenty of cutting-edge interior technology and it might be enough for even the most demanding of minivan buyers. Still, the Honda Odyssey Elite is in a class all its own. The Elite trim delivers the best of everything and more by blending technology, convenience, luxury, and premium safety technology.
