The 2021 Honda Odyssey made its debut at the New York International Auto Show with updates on the headlights, exterior and interior styling, and new safety and technology features.
The Honda Odyssey has been the retail best-selling minivan in America for the past 10 years. And with the new upgrades on the 2021 model, we can expect that to remain true.
Some major upgrades for the 2021 Odyssey include more powerful and efficient LED headlights, a redesigned blackout grille with chrome accents and redesigned fog light housings. The new Odyssey also features new 19-inch alloy wheels and auto-dimming side mirrors.
Changes inside include updated climate controls and second-row seat backs that fold flat for easier seat removal. Higher trim levels get new tri-color floor mats and illuminated USB ports. EX-L and higher trim levels get restyled seats with contrast stitching, and seconds row seat back pockets.
Touring and Elite models add new piano black trim on the dash, doors and front door handles, and the line-topping Odyssey Elite receives perforated leather for the first and second row seats, with contrast stitching and piping on all three rows. Elite also features exclusive dash trim and second-row seat back pockets.
All trim levels will come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. Some new features within Honda Sensing include Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Pedestrian Emergency Braking.
A new Rear-Seating Reminder system is designed to prompt drivers to check their rear seating area before exiting the vehicle. Drivers will hear an audible alert and a warning message on the driver’s display.
