My family wanted an SUV to replace our 2003 odyssey. I really loved that car, but my family convinced me to upgrade and get the newest safety features available. The main reasons why I chose the 2015 Odyssey over SUVs - Less expensive, better gas mileage, and more comfortable! And I can get in and out of the Odyssey so much easier than a huge SUV! I got the touring so it has the DVD player, etc, which is cool, but my teens mostly play on their phones or iPads. It also has navigation, but it's a bit of a pain to use. You can't enter an address/destination while the car is in drive- great for driver safety but inconvenient for the passenger. Much quicker to plug my phone into the USB slot and use my favorite navigation app. Great car overall
The van is spacious and the seats are comfortable. The back seat folds down flat into the well. I call it a well, but it's actually a seat storage compartment. The middle seats are removable. I usually take one middle seat out and it gives me ample space to haul things. For instance, I recently purchased some furniture and was able to place the items nicely in my van. Plus, the items you are hauling do not get wet like a pickup. The van drives like a car so it should be easy for any driver. I love the backup camera as it helps me to avoid an accident while backing. As long as you keep the oil changed and do all of your service checkups, this vehicle will keep running and last a long time.
This is a spacious minivan that could fit an entire family of 7, or some friends, or for UBER . The inside in so sound proofed that you feel so comfortable in it. The cargo space is just amazing. The last row of seats are easily removable and you can even have a 4x8 plywood boards in it. Also, it is not that high and it could fit in most of underground parking spaces. I have owned 3 other minivans (Ford Freestar, Kia Sedona, and Honday Odyssey). This one, by far, is the best invested money in a car.
