Honda Odyssey Minivan in Winnipeg: Features, Inventory & Review
The Honda Odyssey is 25 years old and still going strong, with the popular people mover now into its fifth generation. But despite its longstanding success, Honda aren't resting on their laurels, and the latest refresh of the line adds several attractive new features and upgrades. What should you look for in the 2020 Honda Odyssey?
Powertrain and Performance
The biggest change for 2020 is that the much-admired 10-speed automatic gearbox is now standard across every trim level. The transmission also includes grade logic control and paddle shifters to optimize the front-wheel-drive across different driving conditions.
What's more, the engine has also now been standardized to a 3.5L V6 design offering 280 horsepower and 262lb-ft of torque. This means every trim level now has power in reserve to give comfortable handling for the spacious cabin which seats up to eight.
Trim Levels and Interior
As with earlier releases, there are six main trims starting with the base LX, passing through four variations on the EX, and ending with the luxurious Touring version. Naturally, the higher the trim level, the more interior comforts and conveniences you'll receive.
However, even the entry-level LX boasts an excellent set of features including automatic climate control, push-button start, a multi-angle rearview camera, and dual LCD monitors to control the advanced infotainment system. Head on up to the top-level Touring trim and you'll see such luxuries as wireless smartphone charging, power mirrors and tailgate, a heated steering wheel, and tri-zone climate control.
Optional Accessory Pack
To mark the Odyssey's 25th anniversary in North America, Honda is offering an optional accessory pack for 2020 Odyssey sales. Adding bonuses such as 19-inch wheels, a chrome roof rack, rear bumper protector, and side mouldings, this pack isn't perhaps an absolute essential but it does plenty to improve the looks and usefulness of what's already an attractive minivan.

However, this generous engine performance doesn't come at the expense of fuel economy. With city figures of 12.6L / 100km and an estimated highway rating of 8.4L / 100km, the Odyssey performs very respectably for a family minivan of its size.
The economy figures are further improved by Honda's Idle Stop which is now a standard feature on every Odyssey. The system automatically cuts the engine when the car is stationary for two seconds, and restarts it the moment the brakes are released.
Although it may sound like Idle Stop could be distracting or even irritating, in actual use it's unobtrusive and works well to cut down unnecessary fuel use in traffic-heavy situations.
Lastly, as a vehicle directly aimed at family buyers, the Odyssey places a strong focus on safety and security. Standard features include:
- Full range of airbags for driver and all passengers.
- Lane-keeping assistance with departure warnings.
- Front collision mitigation, and rear collision warnings.
- Electronic stability control.
- Automatic braking system and driveline traction control.
