2012 Honda Odyssey of Arlington

Minivans may not be all the rage these days, but the new 2012 Honda Odyssey from Vandergriff Honda certainly changes the landscape and tenor of the conversation surrounding this segment of family vans. The award-winning Odyssey has literally redefined the minivan as a sharp looking, fuel-efficient vehicle that the Automotive Lease Guide has honored with their "Best Residual Award" for five years in a row. Along with numerous positive Honda Odyssey reviews, the minivan has garnered many awards and titles. The 2011 Odyssey was one of Edmunds.com's "Top Recommended" vehicles. In addition, the Odyssey was one of Kelley Blue Book's "2010 Top Ten Family Cars." This year, the Kia Sedona, Chrysler Town continues to fall short of the Odyssey in terms of style, amenities and sophistication. Stop by our Arlington Honda dealership to find a new or used Honda Odyssey for sale and see what all the hype about this popular minivan is about!

Last year, the 2011 Honda Odyssey won Automobile Magazine's "All-Star" award. But it all began with a minivan that debuted in 1995. Even at that time, Honda was doing its best to change the stale reality that was the minivan segment by equipping the Odyssey with doors that swung open rather than slid, mimicking the doors of a car. The Odyssey seated seven passengers comfortably, and came standard with a 2.2-liter engine. The mid '90s saw an improved 2.3-liter VTEC engine added to the Odyssey, which improved performance and the overall power of the vehicle. Notably, a few changes occurred in subsequent years, but it wasn't until 2005 that the Odyssey received a makeover and was offered in four exciting trim levels. Last year was the start of yet another new era for the Odyssey. The minivan received a complete redesign and gained enhanced fuel economy, modern styling and even more interior space. Arlington residents are invited to stop by Vandergriff Honda for great deals on a new or used Honda Odyssey!
