2021 Honda Odyssey vs 2020 Honda Odyssey

Serving Murfreesboro, TN

When our customers visit Honda of Murfreesboro to purchase a new minivan, they often inquire about differences between the 2020 Odyssey and the updated 2021 model. Both Odyssey model years are incorporated in the Odyssey’s fifth-generation, but the 2021 version adds a few improvements that take this minivan’s appeal to a new level.


While Honda has thoughtfully improved the Odyssey, these updates have not touched the minivan’s capabilities. The 2020 and 2021 Odyssey trims have a 3.5-liter, V6 gas engine linked with a 10-speed auto transmission and paddle shifters. This pair places 280 horsepower under your control. A few additional mechanical features offered throughout the trim lines are active noise cancellation, eco assist, traction control, idle stop, engine immobilization, and others.


Subtle yet meaningful improvements to the Odyssey’s style are visible throughout the 2021 model. These updates begin at the Odyssey’s nose with a modern grille design. They continue inside the cabin with lovely improvements to select trim levels. For example, the 2021 Odyssey Elite adds contrast stitching and piping to its leather material.


Before selecting the model year and trim you want to commit to, you need to compare the trims available for the 2020 and 2021 model years. Throughout the trims, all standard and available features are unchanged throughout the cabin. Regardless of which model year you prefer, some or all Odyssey trims have Android Auto, USB ports, a navigation system, an intercom system, Apple CarPlay, an onboard vacuum, folding seats, and more. Notably, the 2021 Honda Odyssey elevates assistive safety features to standard equipment throughout the full trim lineup.
