The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A thoughtful interior, innovative seating, and excellent handling make the 2013 Honda Odyssey a standout among minivans--although it is the priciest of them all. Top safety scores and spaciousness are in place, even if the VW Routan doesn't have all the same utility and tech options of the related Chrysler minivans.
