The 2015 model year of the Odyssey comes with no less than 7 different trim levels: the basic LX ($28,975), EX ($32,275), EX-L ($35,775), EX-L with RES ($37,375), EX-L with Navi ($37,775), Touring ($42,030) and the range-topping Touring Elite ($44,600). All of these models are rated 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, being powered by a 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC gasoline motor generating 248 ponies and 250 lb-ft (339 Nm) of torque, coupled to a six-speed auto.

According to IHS Automotive statistics, the Honda Odyssey was the best-selling minivan in the U.S. in 2013 and the first five months of 2014 based on new-vehicle registration for retail car buyers. Although this car is basically a family hauler, the Odyssey is garnished with premium styling features such as black-trimmed headlights, a black-surround grille for an upscale appearance and a nicely sculpted hood.

The latter and the front fenders and front suspension control arms are made out of lightweight aluminum, so this is not your average pig iron bus. While the EX is a very stripped model indeed, which comes only with 17-inch steel wheels with plastic covers, we recommend to go northward of the EX-L trim to benefit from the bare minimum of useful driver and passenger features. Speaking of which, the Odyssey can accommodate up to seven passengers and most of their bits and bobs.

All 2015 Honda Odyssey models include an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror and a rearview parking camera, but some optional features may interest potential buyers as well: a 7-inch touchscreen, Rear Entertainment System for the kids seated on the second or third row of seats and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera system. In terms of safety, the IIHS tested the 2015 model year Odyssey and awarded it with the Top Safety Pick+ rating, including an overall "Good" in the Institute's stringent small overlap test.
