February 12 2016,
The whole purpose of a minivan is to be as useful as possible, and there’s no denying that the 2016 Honda Odyssey is the absolute master at everything when it comes to catering to family and driver needs.
Hands down, the Odyssey is the best-looking minivan offered in the segment right now. Modern, sculpted lines define this three-rowed vehicle and give it a level of sophistication often lost in the segment. With distinctive bodylines and a low-slung and almost athletic stance, the 2016 Odyssey is a head-turner on the road, and has some serious presence. LED taillights bars and HID headlights, along with 18” aluminum alloy wheels drive home the modern, stylish persona this minivan encompasses. Finally, the Odyssey’s sweeping roofline alludes to the van’s performance abilities, and reminds everyone that this is, after all, a Honda.
