Expert Quotes:

As in previous Odysseys, the features all work as advertised and serve a clear purpose beyond advertising fodder.

The center console is also removable, allowing a generous pass-through for those who to choose to give up the storage.

Life is just as good in the 2011 Honda Odyssey's third row, which is now sized and cushioned to accommodate 6-footers.
Inside Line

Interior innovations like the original Magic Seat are the holy grail of minivan design, and Honda's latest is "wide-mode" middle-row seating.

the outboard chairs can be repositioned doorward to initiate “wide mode,� allowing for three-across American adults or a trio of kid seats
Car and Driver

Minivan shoppers are most interested in versatility, comfort and interior space–keeping the kids occupied and quiet tends to be a plus, too. Whether you're a parent to many, a regular carpool driver, or a grandparent with the occasional family-hauling duties, the 2015 Odyssey delivers all the convenience you need. It's loaded with smart features, and both the second and third rows of seats can fit full-size adults or slide fore and aft to accommodate up to eight passengers.

Overall, the Odyssey's cabin is a surprisingly quiet, refined space. Some high-tech wizardry helps serve that impression; active noise cancellation and active engine mounts both work to quell vibrations from the engine's fuel-saving cylinder deactivation, while the former also temps to quash excess road noise.

Front seats aren't completely neglected; they're comfortable and somewhat wide, and there's a good view outward. But we can't say they're among the best; we would have liked more lateral support and back support.

The second row can actually slide outward–changing the width of the second row depending on whether there are two adults, three passengers, or a combination of child seats there (there are now five sets of LATCH connectors for child seats).

As for the third row, it gets an armrest in some trims, while the folding mechanism is excellent--you can fold either section of the seat into the floor in a single motion, with only the firm pull of a strap (it takes one arm, and there's no need for a complex power-folding mechanism). This 6'-6" editor would have been happy all day in the second row, while the third row was more confining and only good for short trips.

With both the second and third rows folded, there's enough space and a continuous cargo floor good for two ten-foot-long 2x4 studs, or 4x8 sheets of plywood. For smaller items, there's a media drawer with damped motion, a cooler compartment that can hold several cans or bottles, and a trash-bag ring—one of those simple things you'll wonder how you've managed without. Interior materials and trims aren't in the luxury realm, but they're not bad for also being Wet Wipe-friendly.

Conclusion

Excellent seat comfort in all positions makes up for the fact that the Odyssey's middle row of seats don't fold away into the floor.

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.
