It is time to get know what Honda has prepared for the buyers, and what is worth of mentioning.
2021 Honda Odyssey comes as slightly redesigned model remaining the same usage as before. That means large and comfortable mini-van with modern devices inside and strong but economical engine.

The engine solution for 2021 Honda Odyssey is simple– 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine with 248 or 280 horsepower depending on trim version. Aside from the new nine-speed automatic transmission, there is a possibility of putting the new 10-speed automatic transmission in the next generation of the cars. Other numbers are not known by now because the manufacturer has not passed all tests driving until now. The same engine is probably in the new Pilot too.
There is only one known engine model that will be offered in the new 2021 Honda Odyssey. It is 3.5-liter V6 that produces 290 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with the 9-speed automatic transmission. There is no information that the manufacturer will offer something more in different trims. This engine has been shown great driving performances and numbers, which could be a reason for remaining as the only options. When we talk about the numbers, fuel consumption for this model is 21/34. It is even higher than on the Honda Ridgeline, which shares the similarities with Odyssey.
A little old fashioned design still not spoils the look and impression with 2021 Honda Odyssey, although some people could be disappointed with the cubic and sharp lines and simple lights at the front and rear end. The front end is still interesting and modern, with trapezoidal front grille, covered with horizontal chromatic lines. The front grille continues in thin LED lights, slightly bent in the middle both following the line of the rounded hood. Below them is well incorporated flat air intake and small rounded fog lights on the sides. The side of the car has an interesting curved deep line over the doors, leading to the end of the car, where are triangle taillights spread at the side of the car. The main design rival is Toyota Sienna.
The cabin in 2021 Honda Odyssey is equipped with great devices and helpers, which mostly were present in last year model and have few improvements. Let’s say that in term of enjoyment the manufacturer made things like 60/40 split seats, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connection, USB ports, 7-channel audio system, and 8-way adjustable seats. There are also things like navigation system, keyless entry, rearview camera and decorative windows. The cabin is wide and comfortable, made of light brown leather in combination with the black plastic and has great and wide center cluster.

There are plenty of devices and technique systems only for that purposes. There are headsets for each passenger not only for listening to the music but for the listening of the driver and communication with him. On the colored 10.2-inch touchscreen can be visible all important for the driving and using the equipment.
As we said, the 2021 Honda Odyssey comes almost unchanged from the last model, making this model similar to Toyota Sienna, its main competitor. On the other hand, there are no surprises or even worse things in the new Odyssey. It has again rounded and short front end with recognizable gridded grille and trapezoidal shape of the front end. The rear end, however, is longer and wider, has a flat roof and wide spoiler on the rear window, so the van looks bigger. That surely provides more space inside. The vehicle is also wide and has curved decorative lines on the doors.
