Last redesigned for the 2011 model year, the 2012 Honda Odyssey has been named to numerous lists as a top choice for a family car.

The Odyssey gets class-leading fuel economy with its 248-horsepower, 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that gets 19 city and 28 highway mpg when paired with the six-speed automatic transmission and 18 city and 27 highway mpg when mated to the five-speed automatic transmission.

The third row features a 60-40 split that stows into the floor for additional cargo space. Also available is a center seat in the second row that slides front to back or transforms into a large armrest with cup holders and storage tray.

Standard features include six air bags, dual-zone air conditioning (with tri-zone available); power mirrors, locks and windows (with auto up and down on front); cruise control and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel as well as stability and traction control.

Options include power sliding rear doors, leather seating, several upgraded audio systems, parking guidance sensors, rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a navigation system.
