2021 Honda Odyssey

— TORRANCE, Calif.

  • Refreshed exterior design plus new utility and available luxury refinements inside
  • Honda Sensing®, now standard on all trims, also adds new capabilities
  • Odyssey has been America’s retail #1 best-selling minivan for 10 years

Going on sale August 3, the refreshed for 2021 Honda Odyssey receives numerous updates to styling, along with upgraded technology and safety features to further strengthen its position as America’s retail best-selling minivan for the past 10 years, the top choice of American families looking for the ultimate fun family vehicle. Prices for the 2021 Odyssey start with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $31,7901 (not including $1,120 destination and handling charge).

A restyled grille and front bumper fascia, revised front lighting and new black trim under the rear window give Odyssey a fresh exterior look. Inside, Odyssey offers upgrades to functionality and luxury: The second-row seats on all Odyssey trims now fold nearly flat, making them easier to remove while enhancing cargo-carrying options, and expanding on the flexibility of Odyssey’s exclusive Magic Slide™ second-row seats.

Odyssey EX and higher trim levels also get restyled seats and new tri-color floor mats, while EX-L and above receive and power lumbar support for the front passenger seat and contrast seat stitching. Odyssey Touring and Elite also get new piano black trim on the dash, doors and front door handles, while Elite receives additional luxury touches.

A new Rear Seat Reminder system is standard and can also be integrated with the available CabinWatch® child viewing system, an industry first. For the first time, Odysseys equipped with CabinTalk® and CabinWatch® can use both systems simultaneously, and the upgrade will be retroactively applied to similarly-equipped 2018-2020 model Odysseys through an over-the-air update.

Also, important upgrades to Honda Sensing® add Low-Speed Follow, Pedestrian Emergency Braking, and Traffic Sign Recognition to the newly standard suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies.

As America’s best retail-selling minivan 10 years running, American consumers have purchased more than 1.1 million Odyssey minivans during that time, and Odyssey has consistently set the standard for family-friendly features, space and sporty driving performance in a minivan. Odyssey was the first to introduce minivan innovations such as third-row seats that fold into the floor, the first built-in vacuum cleaner, HondaVAC®, and the first in-cabin rear seat viewing system, CabinWatch®.

The 2021 Honda Odyssey is made exclusively at Honda’s Lincoln, Ala. auto plant, alongside Pilot, Passport, and Ridgeline, using domestic and globally-sourced parts. Its V6 engine is also manufactured in Alabama, with its 10-speed automatic transmission manufactured exclusively at Honda’s Tallapoosa, Ga. facility.

Honda Leads Full-Line Automakers in Fuel Efficiency in Latest U.S. EPA Trends Report

March 4, 2020 
  • Honda fleet average fuel efficiency at 30.0 mpg, up 0.6 from MY2017
  • Fleet average CO2 emissions fell to 296 g/mi, down 6 g/mi year-over-year

Honda ranks as the most fuel-efficient full-line automaker in America in a new report from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released Monday. Honda has the highest fleet average fuel economy and lowest CO2 emissions of any major full-line automaker for the 2018 model year (MY2018), the latest year for which full data is available, according to the report.

The 2019 EPA Automotive Trends Report ranked Honda first among full-line automakers and second overall with a U.S. fleet average “real world” fuel economy of 30.0 miles per gallon (mpg), a five-year improvement of 2.8 mpg, and 4.9 mpg above the industry average for MY2018. Similarly, Honda’s fleet average CO2 emissions dropped to 296 grams/mile, an improvement of 31 grams/mile from 2013 results and 57 grams/mile better than (below) the industry average for the 2018 model year.

In 2019, Honda set a new all-time record for sales of electrified vehicles in America, including the Clarity series, Accord Hybrid and the Insight. With the introduction of the all-new 2020 CR-V Hybrid, on sale March 1, Honda anticipates even more electrified vehicle sales moving forward.

In an effort to reduce CO2 emissions, globally, Honda intends for two-thirds of its automobile sales to be electrified by 2030 and is making substantial investments for the production of electrified vehicles in America1, including the current Insight, Accord Hybrid and all-new CR-V Hybrid, along with the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid and Acura NSX hybrid supercar.

Honda’s Commitment to the Environment
Based on its vision of "Blue Skies for our Children," Honda is working to advance technologies that address society's environmental and energy concerns. The company intends for electrified vehicles to comprise two-thirds of its global automobile sales by 2030. In North America, the Honda Electrification Initiative will see Honda’s electrified powertrain technologies applied to an expanding portfolio of cars and light trucks in the years ahead. Honda’s electrified vehicle lineup today includes the Accord Hybrid, CR-V Hybrid and Honda Insight, and the Clarity series.

Honda is working to reduce the environmental impact of its products throughout their life cycle, including reducing waste, emissions and further improving the energy efficiency of producing, distributing and selling Honda and Acura products in North America. This includes a 93 percent reduction in waste sent to landfills from Honda plants in North America.

Through its “green purchasing” and “green dealer” initiatives, the company also is working to promote more environmentally responsible business practices with its more than 600 original equipment suppliers and 1,300 retail dealer partners.

Honda Accord Earns 2020 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award

February 5, 2020

Honda Accord Named to Car and Driver 10Best List

Honda Accord Named to Car and Driver 10Best List

For the 34th time, the Honda Accord has been named to the prestigious Car and Driver 10Best list, a winning history unmatched by any other vehicle, with 2020 marking the 22nd consecutive year that the Accord has made the list.

The 10th-generation Accord was introduced as a 2018 model, redefining expectations of what a mainstream midsize sedan could be with its dramatic styling, sophisticated and spacious interior, and powerful yet fuel-efficient turbocharged engines. Joining the lineup a few months later, the Accord Hybrid offers outstanding fuel efficiency without sacrificing comfort, refinement or interior space, making Accord a standout among its peers.

"Alert steering and fluid handling turn every dogleg on-ramp, cloverleaf interchange, and 270-degree off-ramp into a momentary escape from the monotonous and the mundane," Car and Driver said in the article. "The precise action and satisfying weights of the steering wheel, the pedals, and the manual shifter suggest a kind of engineering harmony that you rarely find outside of sports cars."

Accord is the retail best-selling midsize sedan in America over the past 44 years1, with cumulative U.S. sales topping 13.8 million units, and U.S. production of more than 11.7 million units since going into production as the first U.S.-made car from a Japanese automaker on November 1, 1982, in Marysville, Ohio.
