All 2023 Honda Odyssey models come equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, which generates 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The V-6 engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, which has paddle shifters. For efficiency, the Odyssey gets an estimated fuel economy of 19 city/22 highway mpg.
The 2023 Odyssey doesn’t offer all-wheel drive. All models have a front-wheel drive system. On the safety front, the Odyssey has the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driving assistance features. This includes pedestrian emergency braking and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow.
New Sport trim for the 2023 Odyssey
The biggest addition for the 2023 Odyssey is the new Sport trim. As the name suggests, the Odyssey Sport has sporty styling. Notable exterior features for the Odyssey Sport include Berlina Black 19-inch wheels, darkened taillights, and a significant amount of gloss black exterior trim. Also, the “grille, headlight trim, fog light surrounds, door mirrors, B-pillar, C-pillar, and taillight trim all feature a gloss-black finish.”
Inside the cabin, the steering wheel and first- and second-row outboard seats have black leather with sporty red contrast stitching. Also, the Odyssey Sport features red accent lighting on the dashboard, front door handles, door pockets, and driver and passenger footwells.
Exterior paint color options for the 2023 Odyssey Sport include Radiant Red Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Platinum White Pearl. Also, Sonic Gray Pearl, which is available for the Sport, Touring, and Elite trims, is a new paint color for the Odyssey.
2023 Odyssey offers Honda Service Pass, a new complimentary maintenance plan
The other major addition for the 2023 Odyssey is Honda Service Pass, a new complimentary maintenance plan. Honda Service Pass, which is good for two years or 24,000 miles, covers standard oil and filter changes, multi-point inspections, and tire rotation.
With its upcoming release, the 2023 Odyssey aims to continue to be the sales leader for the minivan segment. While the 2023 Odyssey has a higher price than the 2022 Odyssey, this cost is somewhat offset by Honda Service Pass complimentary maintenance plan.
