The 2023 Honda Odyssey effectively combines advanced safety features, fuel efficiency, and cargo space to make an ideal camping vehicle for the entire family. Whether you’re headed to a lakefront cabin or into the Michigan wilderness, the Odyssey will get you there safely and comfortably.

Six different available trims give drivers the option to customize and adapt their minivans to their family’s needs. The standard EX model averages 28 MPG while on the highway* to reduce trips to the pump during long road trips. An assortment of advanced safety features also makes the Odyssey a reliable option. 

Safety Features

The Odyssey was given a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA** during their crash testing, and what makes the car so impressive is its ability to prevent collisions actively. Modern Honda Sensing technologies help distracted drivers stay alert and will even take corrective actions when necessary. Some features include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • And More!

The combination of active and passive safety features protects all valuable cargo inside the Odyssey. This can be particularly helpful when asking for directions to a campsite or becoming distracted while driving. 

Cargo Space

All 2023 Odyssey models include comfortable seating for up to 8 passengers. If drivers don’t need 8 seats, fold the center middle-row seat to create a console. The bench seat in the third row will also fold down with the simple touch of a button. 

As each row folds down, drivers can create more cargo space depending on their needs. The power liftgate also makes loading the Odyssey convenient when your hands are full of gear.
