Fuel economy: 18 mpg city/27 mpg highway
You can get an Odyssey LX for roughly $3,000 less than the EX, but we liked EX extras such as power-sliding side doors, an upgraded audio system and tri-zone, automatic climate control.
The Odyssey leads our list in rear legroom with 40.9 inches for second-row passengers and 42.4 inches for the third-row seat. Also impressive is cargo space with 38.4 cubic feet behind the third row and 93.1 cubic feet behind the second row.
Between fill ups, the potential highway-mileage range also tops this list at 567 miles.
Powering the front wheels is a 248 horsepower, 3.5 liter V-6 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission.
Safety features include six air bags and stability control. Odyssey performed well in government and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests.
Among the standard features not already mentioned: full power accessories, cruise control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with redundant audio controls, trip computer, and a six-speaker audio system with subwoofer, CD player and auxiliary input jack.
