The 2020 Honda Odyssey and 2020 Honda Passport were both named U.S. News Report’s 2020 “Best Cars for Families” awards. The Odyssey won the minivan category for the 10th year in a row and the Passport won the Best 2-row SUV category. Since the debut of the “Best Cars for Families” awards in 2011, Honda has become the most awarded brand with 29 vehicle category awards.

To choose its award winners, U.S. News & World Report examined 90 new cars, SUVs, and minivans from the 2020 model year, combining professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume, and the availability of family-friendly features. The vehicle with the highest composite score in each category is named the Best Car for Families.

Major upgrades to the 2021 Honda Odyssey include more powerful and efficient LED headlights, a redesigned blackout grille topped by a chrome strip, and a redesigned lower front facia and fog light housings. New gloss-black trim under the rear window, accented by a chrome strip, echoes the new grille treatment. Odyssey Elite receives newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels and auto-dimming side mirrors.

Changes inside include updated climate controls and second-row seatbacks that fold flat for easier seat removal. EX and higher trims get new tri-color floor mats and illuminated USB ports, while EX-L and higher receive restyled seats with contrast stitching, power lumbar support for the front passenger seat, and second row seatback pockets.

Touring and Elite 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 seatback pockets.
