On the one hand, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is, for the most part, exactly the same automobile as the 2016 Honda Odyssey minus a few modest upgrades, but on the other hand buying the newest version of any automobile means more value, more longevity, and a more perfect product of engineering. There really aren’t any immediate plans for a redesigned version of this esteemed minivan in any of the forthcoming model years, so those looking for a brand new minivan have plenty to be excited about when it comes to this vehicle. It might not be completely redesigned, but it’s new, and there absolutely is something to that.
Of course, just because the vehicle is mostly unchanged doesn’t mean there aren’t some noteworthy changes. The biggest shift for this model year is that Honda is including more high-end lavish options being made available on what traditional have been the more middle-of-the-road trims. For example, starting with the 2017 Honda Odyssey, features like the acoustic windshield, SiriusXM Radio, Rear Entertainment System, Forward Collision Warning, and that beloved HondaVAC vacuum cleaner are no longer just available on the top trim. Many of them now find their ways to the list of options on the SE and EX-L trims, as well.
Also, the 2017 Honda Odyssey still remains elite in terms of fuel efficiency and safety, and it’s also one of the better-looking minivans in the industry. It finds its way to Pacific Honda this month, so if you finally are ready to buy that new minivan, now is the time to head out to our facility and take one for a spin. It may feel familiar, but it’s new, and a good mix of both those things is excellent for consumers.
