What's New for the 2017 Honda Odyssey?
The 2017 Odyssey is the last in Honda's fourth generation of Odysseys, so there aren't many notable changes. The most important change from 2016 is the addition of more trims with an acoustic windshield. This windshield reduces road noise and is available on the EX-L and SE trims.
All of the 2017 Odysseys are mini-vans that come with front wheel drive.
Available trims (with their respective engine and transmission pairings, which come standard with every model) include:
- LX 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- Touring 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- Touring Elite 4-door Minivan (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- EX-L 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- EX-L with Rear Entertainment System 4-door Mini-van
- EX-L with Navigation 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- SE 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
- EX 4-door Mini-van (3.5L 6-cyl 6A)
The 2017 Odyssey epitomizes comfort, safety, and performance. The V6 engine provides a smooth ride, and the addition of the acoustic windshield on the SE and EX-L trims adds a greater quietude while driving. If you have driven a Honda Accord, you will notice that driving the Odyssey feels similar to driving an Accord. The Odysseys handle extremely well. Acceleration is decent due to the power of the 248-horsepower V6 engine, getting from 0-60 mph in 8.0 seconds. Power does tend to drop a little bit between gears, but the six-speed automatic shifts fairly well for a vehicle in its class. Steering is overall pretty precise for a mini-van.
Seating and storage space is often an issue for families who own smaller mini-vans, SUVs, and crossovers. Not so in the Odyssey. The 2017 Honda Odyssey can comfortably seat two adults in the third row and leaves a roomy 38.4 cubic feet open for storage behind the third row. Second-row seats can be easily maneuvered to create space and comfort, and the middle seat slides forward for parents who have to put their little ones in a child car seat, making it easy for them to turn around and attend to their children.
The vehicle's technology is relatively standard and user-friendly. Tech-savvy drivers will appreciate HondaLink's smartphone integration with the Aha app, which gives you access to news, restaurant recommendations, and Internet radio. The one downside is that the Odyssey is one of the newer Honda vehicles that does not feature Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. A rear-view camera comes standard on all models, and there are plenty of safety features that make the Odyssey a great family vehicle.
You can't go wrong with the gas mileage that the 2017 Odysseys get. Whichever trim you select, you will get a combined mpg of 22 with estimated EPA mileages of 19/27 mpg. Fuel tank capacity in each vehicle is 21.0 gallons, and these mini-vans all take regular unleaded gasoline.
Overall, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is a safe, reliable, and powerful mini-van. A family with young children might appreciate the features and specs on the Odyssey as well as its numerous safety features and handling abilities. It certainly holds up to the expectations Honda drivers have for this well-loved automaker.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda Odyssey
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda Odyssey invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Honda Odyssey MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
