Honda further refines its Odyssey minivan for 2021

It features an updated front end, fresh interior materials and some useful new technology.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

This van's interior is quite nice, spruced up with some fresh materials and tech.

Elite is the top trim Honda offers.

One significant improvement made for 2021 involves the second-row seats. The backrests now fold flatter so those chairs are easier to remove.

Elite models roll on 19-inch wheels that feature machined faces and dark-gray paint.

The Odyssey's third-row seat is comfortable and spacious, even for adults.

As before, a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 hauls this minivan around.

Honda's CabinWatch system makes it easy to keep tabs on rear-seat passengers.

One area that could still be improved is the infotainment system. It's not particularly intuitive or responsive.
