2011 Honda Odyssey Verdict – Ugly

A lot is riding on the success of the 2011 Honda Odyssey, as the Japanese automaker hopes to be able to bring something new to the minivan segment. However, we have to warn you that you might throw up when you look at it, the vehicle is just too ugly to look at.

The sad fact is, if the car were designed a little better then Honda could have been on to a good thing, as the new Odyssey drives smoothly and most importantly, quiet. James R. Healey from USA Today has been driving the 2011 Honda Odyssey about for a while now, and has given his honest review.

So we know that he is not a fan of how the minivan looks, but he does make a point of how fuel-efficient it is compared to the main competition. Even though the styling is not that great, when placed next to the old model it takes on a whole new perspective.

Prices will start from $28,000, that’s $3,000 more than the Sienna base-model. However, the former comes with a V6, whereas the latter only has a V4 engine. The Sienna does have an ace up its sleeve though, and that is with all-wheel drive (AWD) — making it a perfect family vehicle.

You have to weigh up if you are able to get over the ugly looks and the fact that there are cheaper minivans on the market, only you can make that choice.
