The minivan is still very much alive and well, and in the form of the 2015 Honda Odyssey in Edmonton AB. Crossovers and SUVs are nice, but none of them have quite the same feel or viability as the tried-and-true minivan when it comes to transporting a growing family and their stuff. The distance to the ground makes it far simpler for your children to get in and out of a minivan than an SUV, and the sliding door is much more practical for getting things in and out of, like a car seat and toddler perhaps.
Though you might think otherwise, you also dont lose all that much power switching over to a minivan. The Pilot is powered by a 3.5L V6 that gets 250 horsepower, while the 2015 Honda Odyssey uses its own 3.5L V6 with 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Not much in sacrificing power, while getting much better fuel efficiency at *12.4 l/100km through city streets and 8.4 l/100km on the highway. Overall, the 2015 Honda Odyssey makes much more sense for a growing family than a crossover or SUV, but many people opt for the other guys because of the somewhat negative image associated with minivans. But were here to tell you that thats long gone!
Image of the 2015 Honda Odyssey
This is not your mommas minivan. Sure, we know that minivans have a stigma about them. And that stems from back in the day, when minivans werent cool because they didnt look remotely cool. They looked like the only thing that could get a soccer mom and her sons whole team to the field in one trip, and minivan creators knew that so they didnt put much effort into the look. But with the rise of the crossover and SUV, the minivan is no longer parents only option. So manufacturers put a little more effort into the image and style of minivans, and thus the gorgeous 2015 Honda Odyssey was born.
The new model looks sleek and stylish, more than any old minivan could ever say. With smooth lines and well placed accents throughout the design, we dont even have to get into the individual exterior features for you to realize how good it looks. But we will anyways, because the 18 wheels draw even more attention to the 2015 Honda Odyssey. High-intensity discharge headlights and heated power side mirrors with integrated turn indicators not only make your vehicle more practical, they make it look even more modern than before. But perhaps the coolest new piece of the design that really draws doubletakes is the rear roofline spoiler. It makes the minivan almost look a little sporty, but definitely makes the whole vans image pop and the integrated brake light draws it all together.
