Minivan - Honda Odyssey
The 2012 Honda Odyssey is the 2012 Ideal Vehicle Award winner in the Minivan category, one of the most hotly-contested segments as Toyota, Chrysler, and Honda continue to duke it out for overall supremacy. The Honda Odyssey impresses with its available eight-passenger seating, a roomy interior, and up to 148 cubic feet of total cargo space. The minivan additionally features the availability of equipment such as heated leather seats, a voice-activated navigation system, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a blind-spot warning system. The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 that generates 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, and it can be shifted via either a five-speed or a six-speed automatic transmission.
