Odyssey Touring Elites DVD UltrawideParenting editors noted that the Odyssey was chosen for this honor based on its many available family-friendly features, such as its Blind Spot Information System that indicates when radar sensors detect another vehicle that may be positioned in the driver’s blind spot, and the Honda DVD Rear Entertainment System (RES) with a 16.2-inch Ultrawide display capable of simultaneously screening two different sources of video programming side-by-side.

“The Odyssey was conceived as the ultimate family vehicle, and the Odyssey Touring Elite takes that concept to an unprecedented new level,” said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Being listed among the ‘Smartest Family Cars’ pays tribute to the Honda R&D team in Ohio and manufacturing team in Alabama responsible for designing and building the best minivan on the road.”
