Expert Quotes:

Parenting choices are tough. Thankfully, purchasing an Odyssey is a life-simplifying choice.
Edmunds

EX, EX-L, and Touring have an abundance of buttons, switches, and more complicated control design that takes time to understand
ConsumerGuide

Four new premium options have also been made available
Motor Trend



The Honda Odyssey is offered in four trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Honda tends to make options available by trim level, so you won't be able to order many of the most desirable extras on an LX or EX without stepping up to a lot more and driving the bottom-line price way up.

The 2010 Honda Odyssey Touring is plush, with leather upholstery, a navigation system, and rear-seat DVD entertainment system. "The more expensive Odyssey EX-L provides a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats, a power front passenger seat, a rearview-mirror-mounted backup camera, satellite radio and a sunroof," says Edmunds.

According to Kelley Blue Book, options exclusive to the "premium Touring model are a power tailgate, memory driver's seat, power-adjustable pedals, front and rear parking sensors and a run-flat tire system." Motor Trend reports that "four new premium options have also been made available, including a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, four-way power passenger seat, rearview camera display, and memory-linked side mirrors with reverse gear tilt-down. DVD entertainment and voice-activated navigation units also are available."

ConsumerGuide clarifies that the base LX gets a simpler control layout; they're not necessarily fans of the supposed upgrade in high-end Honda Odyssey models: "EX, EX-L, and Touring have an abundance of buttons, switches, and more complicated control design that takes time to understand."

Standard on all 2010 Odyssey models are "the disappearing third-row seat, in-floor storage, CD player, dual-zone air conditioning (tri-zone in EX-L and Touring), power windows, keyless entry and cruise control,” reports Kelley Blue Book.

Conclusion

The overall list of features is respectable, but the way Honda bundles convenience features and popular options means that a comparably equipped 2010 Honda Odyssey might be a lot more expensive than rival models.

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.
