Minivans are having a bit of a Renaissance as they transform from clunky inelegance to sleek technology-packed power machines. The 2020 Honda Odyssey offers drivers plenty of options in trim levels along with substantial power, impressive performance, a spacious interior, and myriad safety features designed to keep the whole family safe.
The 2020 Honda Odyssey is available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Each trim level offers slightly different standard features. The LX and all other models come standard with remote entry and auto-off halogen headlights. The EX opens the door to substantial included upgrades, like power-sliding doors, walk-away auto-lock, and fog lights. The EX-L has a power tailgate and moon roof, while the Touring and top-of-the-line Elite trims introduce high-end features like a hands-free power lift gate and front and rear parking sensors.
Each trim level of the 2020 Honda Odyssey shares an engine, a 3.5-liter V-6 capable of 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Honda pairs the powerful engine to a stellar 10-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive. This highly capable engine has more than enough power to haul the Odyssey, even when it’s packed with people and luggage. It can even tow up to 3,500 pounds.
The performance of the 2020 Honda Passport is hard to beat. The engine and transmission work together seamlessly to deliver outstanding power and acceleration whenever you need it. It handles beautifully with a clean connection to the road and supple steering, so you might forget you’re driving a minivan. Despite its size, it handles corners well and manages just fine on narrow, crowded city streets. The suspension and wheels help cushion the ride for all passengers in both the front and back of the vehicle from bumpy terrain.
When you step into the interior of a Honda Passport, you’ll be delighted by the spaciousness, convenience features, and comforts included. Standard across all trims are details like push-button start, a conversation mirror, and comfortable seats with premium materials. The base trim seats seven while all other trims seat eight. Cargo space is substantial even with a passenger in every seat and especially with the seats folded down. Built for comfort and entertainment on the inside, exciting features available for higher trim levels include a PA and camera system to communicate with the back rows of seats, a rear-seat entertainment system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone compatibility, WiFi hotspot, a 115-volt power outlet, wireless phone charger, and a built-in vacuum cleaner.
The 2020 Honda Odyssey comes with an impressive range of active, passive, and driver-assist safety features designed to make safe driving easier. The base model comes standard with a rearview camera, daytime running lights, and car seat connectors in all rear seats. Impressive technologically advanced safety features come standard starting with the EX trim. Features include the full suite of Honda Sensing Safety and Driver Assistive Technologies like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic high-beam headlights.
