2022 Honda Odyssey

2022 Honda Odyssey

Minivans, MPVs, big station wagons, whatever you like to call them, the latest Honda Odyssey is one of the most versatile vehicles in this class of car that you can buy.  It does everything well.  Honda Odysseys are known for their great passenger seating and cargo capacities, and the 2022 Honda Odyssey outshines just its competitors.  With ample seating for 7 passengers, you can take your crowd out for an ice cream, and with the innovative Magic Slide 2nd-row seats, nobody will mind sitting in the third row.

2022 Honda Odyssey

The latest Honda Odyssey comes in two trims for the Australia market: the Vi L7 and Vi LX7.  These two versions of the Odyssey boast an efficient front-wheel drivetrain and use the bulletproof 129 kW/225 Nm normally aspirated 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine that’s linked to a CVT transmission that stays silky smooth even under heavy acceleration.  An everyday mix of both urban and extra urban travel should return you around 8 litres/100 km for fuel economy.  Head on a big open road trip, and you may even see less than 7 litres/100 km.  If you need towing capability, Honda rate the 2022 Odyssey good for 400 kg unbraked and 1000 kg braked.

Honda’s long-running Odyssey people-mover was upgraded in early 2021 when the range was reduced from an 8-seat configuration to two 7-seat versions: the entry-level Vi L7 and the top-spec Vi LX.  Both of these models get autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, road departure mitigation and LED headlights.  If you do end up in a car crash, the Honda Odyssey is superbly built for crashworthiness, however with Honda’s superior front crash prevention scores, you might well avoid any crash before it happens.  Honda has also made sure that the child seat anchors are easy to use, so you can easily strap your little ones in correctly.  IIHS Safety Ratings and NHTSA Safety Ratings are incredibly strong, and our own ANCAP crash testing team have given it a very strong 5 stars (the best you can get).

Both new Honda Odysseys come standard with the full suite of Honda Sensing driver-assist safety features.  These features include the collision mitigation braking system, a lessening of frontal collision impacts, a road departure mitigation system that keeps you squarely on the road, and an adaptive cruise control system with a low-speed follow function that maintains the speed behind a leader vehicle.  Features like a lane keeping assist system and traffic sign recognition helps you stay as safe and alert as possible on the road.

Now even quieter inside than ever, both Odyssey models get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, elegant leather trim, second-row captain’s chairs, and power sliding doors on each side of the vehicle.  The premium new Honda Odyssey Vi LX also includes special items like 3-zone climate control and powered front seats with memory settings on the driver’s side.  Some of the other great available features for this people mover include Honda’s CabinWatch and CabinTalk, a hands-free access to the powered tailgate, a rear entertainment system, an 11-speaker premium audio system, heated and ventilated front seats, wi-fi hotspot capability, and lots more.  No matter what your family and friends need for travel, the 2022 Honda Odyssey is more than likely able to meet it.


There are plenty of us who like to tackle a renovation project at home, whether we should or not is not discussed here.  But for those weekend home improvement projects, you can remove the second and third row of seats in the new Honda Odyssey that provides you with a massive total of 4474 litres of cargo space.  You can also configure the seating and cargo to pretty much any arrangement in between this maximum for whatever job you have to do.  With other accessories like a cargo mat, seat covers, rear cargo bins, and a cargo net, your Odyssey’s cargo space is even more accustomed to meet your needs.

Honda’s new 2022 Odyssey boasts a front end with a cleaner execution, so you get a chrome strip that runs across the top of the grille rather than dipping down through the middle of it.  The rear end of the car trades a chrome spear between the taillights for a gloss-black one that has a small chrome inlay, and there are a few new wheel designs to choose from. On the road the car feels solid, well-balanced and quiet at speed.

Buy new, and you get the advantage of a 5-year/unlimited km warranty with 5-year roadside assistance package.  You’ll drive your family around in safety, style, and speed with all the latest Honda Odyssey features.  Those excellent safety features, along with the 2022 Odyssey’s highly configurable and comfortable seating, its smooth powertrain, and other great features, make the 2022 Honda a great choice for you and your family.
