  • Honda Odyssey
  • Honda Pilot

Thirty cars were tested to pick those frontrunners. Read on to find out what made the Honda Odyssey and Honda Pilot stand out.

Further Honda Odyssey highlights include:

  • CabinWatch® Rear Seat Monitor: A handy camera lets you keep tabs on rear passengers from the touchscreen display.
  • Rear Entertainment System: Keeps kids happy by playing from several media sources onto a 10.2-inch display.
