If you’re looking for the most versatile, flexible, and capable vehicle for transporting up to eight people and their stuff, you really will struggle to beat a minivan. And if you’re going to take advantage of what only a minivan has to offer you may as well go for the best, which in our opinion is the new 2022 Honda Odyssey.
The 2022 Honda Odyssey is as safe and as comfortable for you and your passengers as you could hope for and its strong powertrain is more than up to the job of handling a full complement of people and cargo. All the essential features are well taken care of and you’ll be amazed at how much you get for your money with a new Odyssey when you decide to take a closer look.
No two families are exactly the same so you need a vehicle that can be tailored to suit your specific demands and needs, and you can do exactly that with the Odyssey because there are five different versions to choose from to satisfy a range of different requirements and tastes.
The first model in the 2022 Honda Odyssey lineup is the LX which has a very affordable starting price and a very impressive list of standard features and equipment. Next up is the EX, and from there the range continues to the EX-L, Touring, and finally to the superb, range-topping Odyssey Elite.
If you’re going to be loading a vehicle as capable as the Odyssey to anywhere near its capacity of people and cargo you’re going to need a powerful powertrain, and the 2022 Honda Odyssey doesn’t disappoint. Under the hood of every new Odyssey is an impressive 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine that develops 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the front wheels through a superb 10-speed automatic transmission.
With front struts and a multi-link rear suspension, the Odyssey is tuned to deliver exactly the kind of comfortable and compliant ride even the most demanding passengers will appreciate. And if you want even more versatility and flexibility from your minivan, the Odyssey is also rated to tow up to a very useful 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
Nobody wants to be crushed into a vehicle on a long journey so the 2022 Odyssey provides the kind of comfort and spaciousness only a class-leading minivan can provide. Even those sitting in the third row of seats get to enjoy a very generous 38.1 inches of legroom, while those in the second row get an even more generous 40.9 inches.
Even with the Odyssey full-loaded with passengers in all three rows of seats, there’s an impressive 38.6 cu.-ft. of cargo space in the back of the Honda. When the third-row isn’t in use that can be expanded to 92 cu.-ft., and the van part of minivan really comes into its own when the second and third rows are folded away to reveal a cavernous 158 cu.-ft. for hauling those occasional large loads.
The 2022 Honda Odyssey has all the bases covered and then some when it comes to family transportation duties. A spacious and comfortable interior with folding and sliding seats delivers all the versatility you could wish for, the powerful V-6 engine can handle whatever you could reasonably ask for it, and there’s all the safety and infotainment tech today’s demanding consumers expect.
