2021 Honda Odyssey Announced, Debut Planned For New York Auto Show

2021 Honda Odyssey arrives with updated design and new safety tech

  • Slight refresh gives 2021 Honda Odyssey a slightly different look
  • New 19-inch wheel design for upper Elite trim
  • Powertrain remains the same

The minivan segment is heating up. The latest model to join the party is the 2021 Honda Odyssey which will debut next month at the New York Auto Show with the changes announced today.

The Honda Odyssey joins the Pacifica and the Sienna as the latest minivan to offer news. Unlike the Pacifica’s AWD addition or the new hybrid Sienna, the changes made to the 2021 Odyssey are slightly less comprehensive. Still, the Honda minivan does get a few design changes.

The big change can be found in the headlights. New, more powerful and efficient LED headlights should provide better visibility and more distinctive look coming down the road. Other changes made to the Odyssey include a new grille and the Elite trim gets new wheels.

The minivan’s Honda Sensing system gets upgraded features including adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow as well as automatic braking with pedestrian detection. The 2021 Odyssey also gets a new Rear-Seat Reminder system which reminds drivers to check the rear seats before exiting the vehicle. What’s special about this technology is that in the top Odyssey trims, a camera showing the rear seat will be displayed on the centre touchscreen. No need to actually go back and check.

The 3.5-litre V6 with 280 horsepower doesn’t change. The 10-speed automatic remains and there is no talk of hybrid technology or all-wheel drive. The 2021 Honda Odyssey will arrive on the market later this year.
