Minivans are enjoying a serious comeback on the roads of America, offering great performance, comfort and technology together as a responsible choice for families. You don’t have to give up the fun of driving just to have a practical vehicle, however. These days, minivans can actually be a joy to drive. This is the case with the new fifth generation Honda Odyssey.
Just because this van first came out in 1995 doesn’t mean it has to feel that way. The current generation of Odyssey gets a full redesign this year to bring the very best to enthusiasts on the roads of Palm Beach, Greenacres, and Boca Raton. But, what can drivers expect from the options in the new Honda minivan? Check out the breakdown of 2018 Honda Odyssey trim levels from the team at Braman Honda of Palm Beach. Let’s get started.
