There can be quite a few different factors at play when you’re looking for a new family vehicle, but one thing we always hear at Middletown Honda is “what’s he best used minivan?” Since we carry all different kinds of used vehicles here, there are more than just Honda models to choose from, but at the end of the day, we still have to go with a used Honda Odyssey.

What Makes the Odyssey Great?

The Honda Odyssey has a legacy as an excellent minivan for families of all sizes, and it’s impossible to nail down just which features will be what makes it a great fit for you and your family. That said, we’ve got five traits that make families love it:

  • Seating for the whole family: the Odyssey has seating for as many as eight passengers. We know that should be enough for most of you, plus some friends or luggage for the family road trip.
  • The power you need: select older Odyssey models had the option of either a four-cylinder engine or a V6, giving you the choice to go with a smaller and more fuel-efficient engine or go for the added power, which is especially helpful if you’ll need to attach a trailer for anything.
  • Plenty of features: Honda has always made well-equipped vehicles, and the most recent used Odyssey models can have amenities like Bluetooth, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and even a vacuum cleaner.
  • Lots of luxury: while the Odyssey is not typically considered a luxury vehicle, the high-end trims include many luxurious amenities, including leather upholstery, driver memory settings, voice activated controls, rear seat entertainment systems, and much more.
  • It looks great: sure, tastes vary from person to person, but the Odyssey has been one of the sleekest and most aerodynamic minivans on the market for years now. It would feel out of place to not mention it.

Five strong points that make the Odyssey a great minivan, and when you add in the savings of buying a used model, we think that makes for a strong case. Don’t just take our word for it, though. Visit Middletown Honda and take a look at our used inventory for yourself.
