2014 Honda Odyssey is the Modern Minivan

Yes, we realize we may have to change the name of this blog to “The Blog about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and 2014 Honda Accord,” but we get our content from the internet, so whatever the internet is talking about is what we talk about.

And the internet is talking a LOT about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and it’s all good stuff.

We don’t like to be repetitive so we’ll start with the part of this review (from the Spokesman Review in Spokane) that literally made is LOL (ok, chuckle): “The Odyssey (from $29,655, including destination) seats up to eight in a cabin that’s easily reconfigured to accommodate an apocalypse-worthy Costco run.”

Because, really, we all know what a non-apocalyptic Costco run can look so it was fun to imagine an “apocalypse-worthy Costco run” and it’s good to know the 2014 Honda Odyssey can handle it.

For as much as is awesome about the 2014 Honda Odyssey, this one talked a lot about the superior handling of this modern minivan, perhaps because people don’t expect much from minivans. The 2014 Honda Odyssey is changing all that.

“Despite its large capacity, the Odyssey drives small. It’s responsive and easy to maneuver in traffic. On the road, it’s quiet and stable…Relative to crossovers, the Odyssey’s low center of gravity produces a stable, surefooted feel at highway speeds and through fast corners. Honda’s subtle, sure-handed approach to suspension and chassis dynamics give it a lively quality underhand. The ride is firm and controlled but compliant over rough surfaces. Steering is responsive and nicely weighted, with good on-center feel.”

And, of course, the 2014 Honda Odyssey comes with a plethora of technological options, including Lane Watch, back up cameras, Honda infotainment system, and (on the Touring model) the  HondaVac vacuum!

“The 2014 Honda Odyssey really brings the minivan to a whole new level,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “If you are “scared” of minivans, come check out the 2014 Honda Odyssey. It’s the least minivan minivan you’ll find on the market and you’ll probably fall in love with its style and functionality.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the 2014 Honda Odyssey for a test drive!
