The Odyssey is the benchmark for all other minivans. Not only does it offer decent performance, more car-like driving, and fold-flat rear seats, it also brought the Honda credibility and residual values to the minivan segment. While new models by Toyota, Nissan and Chrysler have applied pressure, the new 2005 Odyssey should answer those challenges. The 2005 Odyssey is roughly the same size on the outside, yet inside packaging changes have resulted in more legroom and width in key areas. Three basic trim levels are offered: LX, EX, and a new Touring model. All three are powered by a 255hp V6 coupled to a new 5-speed automatic. A long list of new features such as power-operated windows in the side doors, a floor-storage system, an improved 3rd-row seat system, a 9-inch DVD entertainment system, an updated navigation system and an available moonroof will help the Odyssey compete and maintain its status.
