Honda Odyssey

Specs: 244-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine

While Honda's reputation as a brand is not built on performance, its Odyssey (about $26,800) has been widely lauded by automotive reviewers for it superb performance and handling capabilities that make it easy to forget you are driving a minivan.

Redesigned for 2011, the Odyssey's new, sleeker styling results in increased visibility and space for third-row passengers. The 244-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management, a feature with which some engine cylinders shut down when not needed such as during steady cruising.

Combined with improved aerodynamics, the Odyssey offers top-notch fuel economy. All Odyssey models feature bucket seats in the first and second rows with a 60/40 split-folding third row and seating for seven or eight. Also new this year is a rear-seat entertainment system with split-screen viewing.
