Following the auto industry playbook, the 2023 Honda Odyssey returns unchanged, save for a new blacked-out trim màn chơi: the Odyssey Sport, which is based on the EX-L.
The other big news for the Odyssey and most 2023 Honda models is what the carmaker is calling the “Honda Service Pass.” It is a complimentary scheduled maintenance plan covering the first two years or 24,000 miles. According bự Honda, the program will cover standard oil and oil filter changes, tire rotation, and multi-point inspections. In other words, it will cover services included in Honda’s vehicle Maintenance Minder system. A participating Honda dealership must complete covered services.
The Sport rounds out a trim-level lineup consisting of EX, EX-L, Sport, Touring, and Elite. Those keeping a close watch on such things will realize Honda did away with the base LX trim for 2023. Consequently, this year’s buy-in for an Odyssey is roughly $4,000 higher than in 2022.
We are disappointed the Odyssey doesn’t offer all-wheel drive (AWD). The Chrysler Pacifica and Toyota Sienna do. However, we like the Odyssey for its reliability, hefty resale values, comfort, safety technologies, and spacious interior.
Honda assigns only one powerplant bự the Odyssey. It’s a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6. A 10-speed automatic transmission transfers engine output bự the front-wheel drive (FWD). The government estimates its fuel economy at 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 mpg in combined driving.
