Space is another thing to like about this minivan. The second and third rows are the most comfortable ones in the minivan category. In fact, if you compare the second row of Odyssey with the Pacifica, Odyssey has the obvious winning.

Powertrain and Performance

Up until now, there is no information about the details of the powertrain. However, there is a possibility that it would be a carryover from the 2023. There is a possibility of hybrid powertrain too, but the company hasn’t mentioned anything about it, so we’d better wait.

The Odyssey is definitely a fun and engaging ride to drive. It feels polished and not clumsy at all. You can easily maneuver the ride, even when you need to tackle corners quite effortlessly. You won’t even remember that you are actually controlling a (3-row) van from behind the wheel. For fuel economy, it can deliver 19 mpg for the city and 28 mpg for the highway.

Release Date and Price

Considering that the Odyssey would be coming in various trim levels, you should also be prepared for the price range. The base model would be the EX with a tag of $39,000. Then, there would be the EX-L with a tag of $42,000. The next one in Line would be the Sport with the tag of $42,500. The last two higher trims would be the Touring ($45,800) and then the last one would be the Elite with the tag of $50,800.
