Minivan wars are heating up, with automakers competing to see which can offer the most functional, pleasing living room on wheels. The Honda Odyssey is a top contender, boasting a dual-input rear video screen, which includes an HDMI input, and excellent voice control.
Honda updated its Odyssey minivan for the 2011 model year, significantly changing the body style and updating the cabin tech. In Honda style, there are no options, just different trim levels. Our review car was the very top trim Elite Touring.
The stack is not that well-designed in the Odyssey, as the controls for onscreen content are way at the bottom. If they were closer to the screen it would be easier for drivers to match button to screen activity.
