2020 Honda Odyssey LX
- Vehicle Overview
The 2020 Odyssey comes in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite. But in typical Honda fashion, there aren't any packages or factory-installed options offered aside from a navigation and rear-seat entertainment upgrade for the EX-L. So to find the Odyssey you want, you'll need to pick a trim that matches your desired features and budget.
All Odysseys are equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 (280 horsepower, 262 lb-ft of torque) paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
The Odyssey LX is a good platform if you want minivan versatility at the best price. It comes with a robust list of standard features, including automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, a 5-inch central display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, two USB ports and a seven-speaker sound system.
Moving up to the EX starts to make life easier, adding features such as power-sliding rear doors, three-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and enhanced sliding second-row seats with a removable center seat. The EX also tacks on more tech, including an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a host of driver aids such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.
The EX-L notches up the luxury factor with a sunroof, a noise-reducing windshield, a power liftgate and leather upholstery. As an upgrade, an EX-L subtrim (EX-L with Advanced Navi and RES) adds a navigation system, a 10.2-inch overhead display in the second row, and a Blu-ray player. This version of the EX-L also has a cabin intercom system, which broadcasts the driver's or front passenger's voice to the rear seating areas.
The Touring takes things up with front and rear parking sensors, a hands-free liftgate, an integrated vacuum cleaner, a rear-cabin camera monitoring system (CabinWatch), and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Elite trim tops it off with luxuries such as ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging and a premium audio system.
