The 2014 Honda Odyssey gets big upgrades

The Honda Odyssey is a roomy, practical minivan that’s family-friendly and good to drive. For 2014, the Honda Odyssey received a major update that’s definitely more than skin deep. Headlining the changes, 2014 was the first year for the Odyssey’s built-in vacuum cleaner, the HondaVAC™. Other newly available upgrades include push-button start and Bluetooth® audio streaming.

On the safety front, Honda added available forward collision warning, and reinforced the Odyssey’s structure to boost its performance in crash tests. Honda also made the improved transmission from higher Odyssey trim levels standard across the range, meaning all Odyssey trims finally have the same fuel economy, acceleration, and smooth shifting.

5 reasons to buy the 2014 Honda Odyssey

What We Like

Good to drive: The Honda Odyssey’s V6 engine is smooth and strong, even if the Odyssey isn’t the quickest minivan available. With suspension that balances comfort and handling, and steering that feels quick and responsive, the Odyssey is one of the best minivans to experience from the driver’s seat.

Family-friendly design: The Odyssey’s flexible seating features a wide second row that can fit three car seats, and a sliding center seat that can be moved forward to keep small children in easy reach. There’s a trash bag holder in the removable center console, and a built-in vacuum cleaner on the Touring Elite trim. Entertainment features on higher trims include a 16-inch screen that can display two inputs, including a built-in DVD player.

Fuel-efficient: The Odyssey’s V6 returns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined, which makes this 8-passenger minivan slightly more fuel efficient than other minivans of the time.

You can get newer minivans with hybrid systems that improve mileage, but among traditional gas minivans, the Odyssey is an efficient choice.

What Needs Improvement

Lacks driver aids: While Honda improved the 2014 Odyssey’s crashworthiness (it became an IIHS Top Safety Pick+), it still has limited access to what are now common driver aids. Forward collision warning and blind-spot monitoring is only included on EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite trims, while blind-spot monitoring is only included on Touring Elite. If you’re looking for features like automatic emergency braking or rear cross-traffic alert, you’ll need to look at later model years.
