2021 Honda Odyssey FrontMeet the 2021 Honda Odyssey, a family van with the comfort and convenience features the whole family will enjoy and the power and style that make it fun to drive. It’s loaded with technology to keep you connected. The thoughtfully designed cabin features all the amenities you can think of, plus a few you hadn’t. Let’s take a closer look at the best features of the 2021 Honda Odyssey.

Exterior Style

The bold front fascia features LED headlights, a gloss black active shutter grille, and LED fog lamps set low and wide. Its sculpted fenders and side-body, 19-inch alloy wheels in various styles and colors, and chrome trim give the Odyssey an athletic profile. Power sliding doors on both sides get everyone in and out with ease. 

The darkened rear window wraps around to the sides, hiding the track for the doors while giving the appearance of a free-floating roof. LED taillights feature contemporary design and combine with the rear spoiler to complete the Odyssey’s distinctive rear fascia. The hands-free power tailgate makes for easy access when your hands are full.

Accessorize your Odyssey with roof rails and crossbars to carry everything from bikes to luggage racks. An available welcome light illuminates the ground when the doors open, helping you keep your footing in the dark. Chrome door trim adds style and streamlined body-side molding helps protect your doors from dings. Adding chrome to the rear bumper protects against wear from loading and unloading gear.

Interior Comfort

The heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel provides warmth and sophistication. Heated and ventilated front seats and a tri-zone climate control system keep you and your passengers in personalized comfort. Integrated sun shades for the second and third-row windows keep the glare outside.

The Magic Slide seats slide sideways with the push of a button for easy access to the third row. The Magic Slide seats are removable as well. The third-row’s Magic Seat stows neatly beneath the floor. With the second-row seats removed and the third-row seats stowed you get 158 cubic feet of cargo space. The third-row Magic Seat storage space offers another place to store items when the seats are in use.

In-Vehicle Technology

Honda includes CabinWatch, a video feed of the rear cabin projected on your center display screen to keep an eye on your passengers. The CabinTalk system broadcasts your voice through the speakers, so everyone can hear you, even with headphones on. A 7-inch digital driver information screen displays all your critical driving data and driver-assist alerts.

A rear entertainment system features a 10.2-inch screen that deploys from the overhead console. The system has Bluetooth streaming built-in to play your favorite movies. A wireless charging pad and USB ports throughout the cabin keep everyone charged and connected. The one-touch power moonroof opens up to let the light and air in and offers spectacular views. A remote start feature lets you set your climate control system before entering.

The 8-inch center display screen with touch, pinch, and zoom capability runs all your tech. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity let you sync your smartphones. You can make calls, access your favorite apps, get navigation information, and more, hands-free with intuitive voice commands. The premium sound system operates by zone, allowing you to turn off portions of the cabin so passengers can rest.

Powerful Engine

2021 Honda Odyssey EngineThe Odyssey runs with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with a single overhead cam and 24 valves with i-VTEC and direct injection technology. This engine uses variable cylinder management to shut down cylinders when full power isn’t needed. Honda pairs this engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth, effortless shifting and power on demand. This powertrain delivers 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.


The Odyssey features a capable front-wheel-drive platform that delivers excellent traction under various road conditions. The MacPherson strut front suspension, compact multi-link rear suspension, and stabilizer bars on the front and back give the Odyssey a smooth ride and firm grip without body-roll when cornering. A snow mode dials in your traction control system for improved performance in wintry weather.

Honda Sensing

2021 Honda Odyssey TechYour Odyssey comes with Honda Sensing, a suite of driver-assist technologies designed to elevate your driving experience and keep you safe. The suite includes adaptive cruise control (ACC) with low-speed follow. This system uses radar and cameras to keep you at a preset speed and distance while in traffic. ACC automatically slows your Odyssey down when the car ahead slows, even to a complete stop. When the way ahead clears, a tap on the gas pedal will activate the system and return you to your preset speed and distance.

Honda’s Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) uses advanced optical sensors to scan the road ahead, alerting you to potential hazards. It will apply emergency brake support should you fail to react to lessen the severity of a possible impact. The road departure mitigation (RDM) system uses similar technology to track your Odyssey within marked lanes. The RDM provides steering correction when detecting an unintentional lane crossing and emergency braking, if necessary, to keep you from leaving the road.

Traffic sign recognition software identifies common signs like stop, merge, and speed limit. It displays the information on your driver information screen. A lane-keeping assist system (LKAS) monitors your Odyssey within marked lanes on the highway. The LKAS provides subtle steering adjustments to keep you centered, helping reduce driver fatigue. A blind spot information system uses sensors on the rear bumper to alert you when vehicles enter your blind spots.
