Middletown Honda Reviews the 2014 Honda Odyssey

January 29th, 2014 by

Minivan ReviewsThe minivan has come a long way over the past decade. Once marginalized by the rising popularity of SUV’s, and their smaller cousin, the crossover, the minivan was forced to change for a public that demanded smart looking vehicles that were as comfortable as they were agile.

A high-performing car with the body of a streamlined family carrier, the 2014 Honda Odyssey continues to score highly with reviewers. A good minivan is so much more than performance, though. The Odyssey scores good marks in terms or comfort, as well as safety.

Smooth Handling

When you say that a minivan has good handling, you’re typically talking in the context of minivans. A minivan really can’t compare with say, how a small, sporty crossover performs. We’ve found the way the Odyssey handles to be engaging and dynamic, words that don’t get thrown around lightly in this class.

Family Safety

The 2014 Odyssey is also a proud recipient of a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Even more impressive is the Odyssey took home a top score of “Good” in the small overlap front test, a tough test to pass for many cars. While a small overlap is typically considered more dangerous than many other crashes, the Odyssey demonstrated its ability to keep the cabin intact during such as event.
