2021 Honda Odyssey Is Updated And Refined

Restyled and safer, the 2021 Honda Odyssey will continue on as a popular minivan


  • The exterior design is refreshed.

  • Honda Sensing is updated and standard on all models.

  • Pricing starts at $31,790 in the US, and it goes on sale on August 3rd.


The Honda Odyssey will roll into the 2021 model year with visual improvements, interior enhancements, and a desire to keep your entire family as safe as possible.

For the 2021 model year, the Odyssey will be restyled upfront with a new grille, bumper, and lighting. The rear update will be limited to a new black trim below the window. Onboard, as one would expect from a minivan, functionality takes center stage as the second-row seats, as part of its exclusive Magic Slide seats, now fold nearly flat. This improves cargo-carrying flexibility and also makes them easier to remove.

The top-line $47,820 Elite gets extra attention with perforated leather seats for the first two rows with contrast stitching in all three, a new metallic dash trim as well as unique 19-inch alloy wheels.

Safety features now include a standard Rear Seat Reminder system that can be integrated into the available CabinWatch child viewing system. If this could be a useful feature in your 2018-2020 Odyssey, know that Honda can retroactively apply the technology with an over-the-air update if your van already has the features.

As well, Honda Sensing, another standard safety element, will now include Low-Speed Follow, Pedestrian Emergency Braking, and Traffic Sign Recognition.

The Honda Odyssey is one of the few minivans remaining in the segment and even so, the category is heating up. With an all-new Toyota Sienna, updated Chrysler Pacifica, re-branded Chrysler Grand Caravan (Canada only), and new Kia Sedona on the way, only the Honda Odyssey was left untouched until now.

Here’s the complete trim and pricing breakdown:

Odyssey LX: $31,790

Odyssey EX: $35,190

Odyssey EX-L: $38,460

Odyssey Touring: $42,500

Odyssey Elite: $47,820
