– 2011 Honda Odyssey Minivan Road Test & Review

The Honda Odyssey is arguably the best minivan on the market, and pioneered many of the features we take for granted in minivans today.

It’s also pushed other minivans to adopt its racier, more involving character.

For 2011 it has been completely redesigned, with Honda’s latest tech and its new 6-speed transmission (available only on the Touring Elite model). It’s improved in almost every way, and boasts a compelling mixture of performance, fuel economy, and Honda’s legendary reliability and resale value.

Watch RoadflyTV’s Emme Hall subject this uber-van to lots of laundry-basket tests, holla-ing, and much thoughtful criticism in our review of the 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
