How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

In order to bring you a conclusive, well-rounded review of the 2010 Honda Odyssey, TheCarConnection.com's team of experienced editors have driven several variations of this best-selling minivan and bring you their take here, along with a Full Review that includes opposing viewpoints to help you make the best family vehicle choice.

The current version of Honda's minivan, the Odyssey, was introduced back in 2005 and aside from a mid-cycle freshening for 2008 hasn't seen many changes along the way. That's just fine, as when it was introduced the Odyssey was well ahead of most of its rivals, in terms of the driving experience. It still is, although several other models now have even better seating arrangements.

In terms of styling, the 2010 Odyssey sure doesn't strike any new ground, inside or out. But minivan buyers purchase these vehicles purely for practicality, so they probably won't mind the anonymity. At the front and rear, the Odyssey has a toned-down, more subdued version of the beveled, excessively chunky, chromed look that Honda has been phasing in for the rest of its larger vehicles in recent years.

Depending on whether you choose the budget-minded LX or EX models or spring for one of the top EX-L or Limited trims, you'll get a slightly different engine. A 244-horsepower, 3.5-liter VTEC V-6 comes with the LX and EX; it feels strong in this van, works well with the five-speed automatic, and brings fuel economy ratings of 23 mpg highway. A different version of the 3.5-liter, with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), shuts down half of its cylinders when coasting or low-speed cruising to raise highway fuel economy to 25 mpg. The VCM engine achieves 3 hp less, but you won't notice the difference. In either case, city fuel economy is just 16 or 17 mpg, which isn't particularly impressive from a company known for efficient powertrains.
