Honda Odyssey: After nearly a decade on the market, the Honda Odyssey continues to set minivan benchmarks with its consumer-friendly utility, fuel-efficient powertrain, and 8-passenger capabilities. As a result of high owner satisfaction with the vehicle's performance and design, the Odyssey was ranked highest-in-segment in the 2007 APEAL study.
