2022 Odyssey Interior

The Odyssey's cabin is beautifully executed, even though there's no real sense of occasion. The digital instrument cluster looks cool, and the ambient lighting around the center console is a nice touch. Honda's primary focus is space and durability, however. Whether a model comes with cloth or leather, it feels like it will last a lifetime. Interior plastics are high-quality, and the car is bolted together properly. For a vehicle with so many seats, the potential for rattles is relatively high. The fact that we couldn't hear a single rattle is proof of Honda's high standards.

Seating and Interior Space

The base LX model is a seven-seater, while the rest of the range comes with eight seats as standard. An eight-seater Honda Odyssey is obviously the must-have configuration if you're going to be traveling with larger groups. Heated front seats are standard from the EX. Headroom and legroom are plentiful throughout, and even adults will be comfortable in the third row. Headroom is 40.7/39.5/38.3 inches in the front/middle/rear for LX and EX trims. This drops slightly to 38.7/39.2/38.3 inches for the upper trims due to the fitment of a moonroof. Legroom is rated at 40.9/40.9/38.1 inches for all models.

Minivans are usually hard to see out of, and the Odyssey with its massive rear overhang is no exception. Thankfully, a rearview camera and blind-spot assist are standard to help with visibility. Ingress and egress are straightforward, thanks to large front doors and sliding rear doors which are powered on upper trims. Sliding the second row forward is also effortless, making it easy to access the third row.

Interior Colors and Materials

When functionality is the main priority, design takes a rear seat. At least Honda didn't sacrifice quality. The LX and EX both come with cloth seats available in Beige, Mocha, or Gray, depending on the exterior color selection. Leather is standard from EX-L and Touring in Beige, Mocha, Black, or Gray, once again specific to exterior paint. The top-spec Elite comes with model-specific perforated leather in the same color scheme/exterior paint combinations.

While interior color options are limited, the main touchpoints are covered in soft-touch material. That's quite an achievement considering how much surface has to be covered in a minivan.

2022 Odyssey Trunk and Cargo Space

A family carrier needs to have cargo space in spades; what good is transporting eight people if they can't take their luggage with them? The Odyssey offers 32.8 cubic feet behind the third row. That's not enough for all eight large suitcases, but eight carry-on bags for sure. With the third row folded flat, the cargo capacity grows to between 86.6 cubes and 89.2, depending on trim level - and that's still with enough room to seat five occupants. Behind the first row, you get between 140.7 and 144.9 cubes.

Storage space on the inside is impressive as well. There are enough cupholders, and the space between the front seats is enormous. The center stack has loads of space for knick-knacks too.

2022 Odyssey Infotainment and Features

Features

The new Honda Odyssey is well-equipped, though the base model is missing a few features we think should be standard. All models get climate control, push-button start, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, and Honda Sensing. Only the LX model does without blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic assist. From EX upward, you get tri-zone climate control, a power tailgate, a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and heated front seats. High-end models add other luxuries like ambient lighting, navigation, a power tailgate, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, seatback pockets, heating and ventilation for the front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Infotainment

The base model's infotainment system is a letdown. It's an outdated five-inch touchscreen interface with Bluetooth connectivity and a single USB port - there's no smartphone integration, and it's mated to a seven-speaker sound system. The EX and above are equipped with an eight-inch high-resolution touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and HD Radio. The seven-speaker system is standard on the EX-L and Touring, while the Elite model gets an 11-speaker premium sound system. The Touring also adds an in-car PA system, an advanced rear-seat entertainment setup, and Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. The top-spec comes with a wireless phone charger and multi-zone audio.
