2021 Honda Odyssey vs 2020 Honda Odyssey

Serving Mt. Juliet, TN

The Honda Odyssey continues to be a leading contender for local minivan shoppers, thanks to improvements to aesthetics and features. After the Odyssey’s fifth-generation debuted in 2018, Honda has progressively made mid-generational updates to elevate its appeal. Now that you are ready to pick out your new minivan from Music City Honda, you need to learn about the differences between the 2020 and 2021 versions.


The equipment under the hood of the 2020 Honda Odyssey is unchanged for the latest model year. Across the five trims available for both years, the Odyssey pulls 280 horsepower from its V6, 3.5-liter gas engine. Likewise, features like idle-stop, a 10-speed auto transmission, paddle shifters, engine immobilization, traction control, eco assist, active noise cancellation, and others are uniform across all Odyssey trims for both years.


While the design differences between the 2020 and 2021 Odyssey minivans are mild, they are apparent when comparing the options next to each other at Music City Honda. For example, the 2021 Odyssey’s front end displays a redesigned grille that is modernized and confident. The primary interior updates are in the Elite trim level. At this level, the 2021 version has contrast piping and stitching paired with leather material.


The Odyssey is outfitted with a smart selection of convenience features and technologies, and these are unchanged between 2020 and 2021. For example, both versions have an onboard vacuum, an intercom system, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, USB ports, Android Auto, and other items. In 2021, the Odyssey makes the Honda Sensing® assistive driving aids standard throughout all trims.
