From its wide range of family-friendly features to its towing capability and efficiency, the 2020 Odyssey is a solid family hauler – and the critics agree. These are some of the features that reviews of the 2020 Odyssey have found appealing.
Clever family features. “Comfort is one of the Odyssey’s strong suits” with seating for up to eight people, according to a CNET review. This minivan also comes equipped with family-friendly technologies that will help make parenting a bit easier. CabinWatch helps you see your backseat passengers without having to turn around, while CabinTalk acts as an in-vehicle PA system, allowing you to speak with your backseat passengers without having to raise your voice. You can even opt for the HondaVac built-in vacuum.
Potent, yet efficient powertrain. Every Odyssey comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. According to U.S. News & World Report, the engine “feels smooth, powerful, and capable. It delivers quick acceleration for a minivan.” The Odyssey also gets “good numbers for the class” when it comes to efficiency, offering an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.* This minivan can also tow up to 3,500 pounds, making it easy to bring your gear with you on the go.

In the United States, road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children. Because of this, it’s important that you know whether or not you’re using your child’s car seat correctly. To help give you peace of mind, we’ve put together a list of some car seat safety tips you should keep in mind when you’re on the go.
Use the right kind of
seat. It’s important you know the right type of car seat your child should
be in at any given time. Your child should be rear-facing for as long as
possible up until they are two or more years. Once your child has outgrown its
rear-facing seat, you can move them into a forward-facing one.
Get your car seat installation checked. Depending on where you live, there are places you can bring your vehicle so that your car seat can be looked over, ensuring it’s installed correctly. You can find a list of local places that will do this here.
Keep track of your
child’s size. As your child grows, his or her car seat requirements may
change. Make sure you’re aware of your car seat’s weight, height, and age
limits and, if your child outgrows these, you have a new seat at the ready.
One of the ways to improve car seat safety is to buy a car that has a robust and easy-to-use LATCH system. Fortunately, many of the cars at Bryan Honda have just that. Visit us today to learn more about how buying Honda can improve your children’s safety.
As a father, the greatest gift you can give to your children is to share the wisdom you’ve accumulated over the years. This Father’s Day, take the time to teach your kids about cars so they grow up to be smart, savvy drivers.
Basic car maintenance
Even before they start driving, every kid should learn some basic car maintenance. And who better to learn from than dad? Before driving lessons even start, make sure your child knows how to check fluid levels, properly inflate tires, replace filters and headlights, and change oil and tires. Also make sure your kids know exactly what the dashboard warning lights mean.
You can start teaching your children to recognize emergency vehicles from a very young age. Make sure your young children can identify ambulances, fire trucks, and police vehicles. Once kids get a bit older, you can start teaching them what to do in the events of a vehicle accident so they’re prepared for the worst when they start driving on their own.
Some basic money literacy is extremely important when it comes to cars. When your children approach driving age, make sure they understand how car insurance works, the costs associated with vehicle upkeep, and how to handle things like parking tickets and registration fees.
And when your kids become teenagers and finally turn 16, make sure to bring them to Bryan Honda to make sure they get a proper look at what the industry’s best cars are like!
