Why fewer chairs seat more
WE’D recommend the $ 46,090 VTI-L with its seven seats over the base VTI eightseater, since the three-person middle bench is binned for a pair of ‘Captain’s Chairs’ with ottoman leg rests. Besides being comfier, they feature self-contained child-seat anchorage hooks, meaning the third-row seats can be used since there won’t be straps reaching up to the back of the ceiling with a kiddie seat fitted.
Plus, cornering headlights, a surround-view camera, fog lights, keyless entry/ start, auto parking, sunroof, tri-zone climate, blind-spot monitoring, Cross-traffic alert, heated/electric front seats, leather, and twin electric sliding side doors with blinds go some way to easing the pain of Odyssey’s styling and ride quality.
The flair of previous models has gone; fifth-gen Odyssey smacks of cynical, expedient engineering
IGNORE THE WOOD TRIM AND ODYSSEY’S DASH AND INSTRUMENTS ARE NOT CAUSE FOR COMPLAINT. IT’S AFT OF THIS WHERE ITS TROUBLES START...
