All of these traditional-size minivans are adequately powerful with their large V6 engines, but the Odyssey’s engine is also smooth and relatively quiet. That’s partly thanks to Honda’s use of active engine mounts, which help to quell vibrations, and active noise-cancellation technology (a rare feature in a minivan), which cancels out unwanted frequencies. This engine is also the same V6 that Honda uses in many other vehicles, like the Pilot three-row crossover, the Ridgeline truck, and a number of luxury sedans from Acura. The company has been using this engine in the Odyssey and updating it along the way since the late ’90s. In its Annual Autos Survey, Consumer Reports gave the Odyssey’s V6 its highest reliability rating for every model year going back to 2009.
