Photos of the Honda Odyssey

Cleaner face than the 2011-2013 Odyssey.

Touring and Touring Elite add fog lights, side skirts, and 18-inch wheels. Sporty?

More adventuresome styling than the Toyota. But does anyone really like the zig-zag?

Sienna's exterior is sleeker and more conventional than the Odyssey. For a sportier look get the SE.

Zig-zag enables a more dramatic rake to the belt line (base of the side windows).

Odyssey styled to appear relatively wide and low from the rear.

Honda Odyssey Photos: Honda Odyssey interior

Typical circa-2011 Honda interior doesn't quite measure up to the "Elite" label and $45,000 price.

Sportier, less overtly upscale instrument panel styling than the Sienna.

Raked center stack puts HVAC controls beyond reach. Touchscreen not as handy as a tuning knob.

Controls a little easier, and more of them are within reach. Faux wood a matter of taste.

Honda seats are not to everyone's taste. This one's lumbar bulge was a bit high for my back.

Center section folds to form an armrest with cupholders.

Not as much extra room as the specs suggest. But the Touring and Touring Elite do add an armrest.

Sienna's "wow" feature best used with no one in the third row. Kia will also offer these next fall.

Minivan money shot: two to three times as much cargo space behind the third row as in a crossover.

Odyssey has more cargo space behind the second row than the Highlander does with both rows folded.

Second row doesn't stow. Must be removed for maximum cargo volume.

Honda Odyssey 3.5-liter V6 isn't as strong as competitors' engine, but is more fuel efficient.

Honda Odyssey Photos: Hondavac

Honda's new "wow" feature, only on the top-level Touring Elite. Two attachments, but no brush.

Honda Odyssey Photos: Spilled sugar after Hondavac

Unfortunately this is the "after" shot. The Hondavac sucked up most but not nearly all of the sugar.
