All Odysseys get a 3.5L V6, the same engine that's in Honda's Ridgeline. On the base Odyssey, it puts out 244 horsepower and 240 lb-feet of torque, and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The Odyssey features plenty of minivan comfort features such as dual sliding doors, a retractable center tray table, and beverage holders galore. Remote keyless entry is standard, as is a folding third-row seat, which Honda calls "Magic Seat" because it folds into the floor with one smooth motion. Safety features include anti-lock brakes and side-impact air bags with a roll-over sensor.
The upgraded EX model motorizes the dual sliding doors and adds a second-row "Plus-One" removable seat to increase the passenger capacity to eight. Tri-zone climate control is also part of the package.
On the EX-L and Touring models, Honda adds variable cylinder management technology, which turns off three cylinders at cruising speed. The EX-L model's i-VTEC variable valve timing system doesn't increase power output, but the torque does come on slightly sooner, improving engine response. The Odyssey is no sports car, but at 8.6 seconds to 60 mph, it merges like a smaller car.
The EX-L utilizes an active noise cancellation system that uses the vehicle's stereo to cancel wind and road noise in order to create an even quieter ride. A power sunroof, leather seat trim and steering wheel, are also upgrades included on the EX-L.
The Touring models gain XM satellite radio. Front and rear parking sensors, and a programmable trip computer are all standard. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system with a nine-inch drop-down display and wireless headphones can be added. Navigation is also available.
The 2008 Honda Odyssey sees the addition of auxiliary audio input jacks, daytime running lights, and programmable power door locks. Dual-zone climate control goes to tri-zone on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, and the EX-L now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Run-flat tires are no longer standard equipment on the Touring, but navigation and Bluetooth are.
Reliability; powerful V6; acres of comfortable interior space.
With a refined powertrain, prolific passenger capacity, a folding third-row seat, and clutch of beverage holders, Honda's 2008 Odyssey meets all of the American minivan driver benchmarks. To differentiate itself from the rest of the segment, Honda adds its i-VTEC technology, available active noise cancellation and leather seating, and superior build quality and reliability, making it an excellent value.
