The 2015 Honda Odyssey 5-Door Touring Elite is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cars 

A noteworthy feature of the 2015 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is that it comes with its own built in vacuum cleaner, something that seems totally ingenious in a car designed to carry families and practically built with picnics and road trips in mind. Other features the Odyssey offers are more baffling, like rear seat screens that allow you to simultaneously watch two different videos. Otherwise, this Honda does its job well and proves there’s a good reason why it’s a mainstay of the minivan market.

Competition from Kia and Toyota may offer an edge in style or acceleration, but in the minivan world things like roadholding and 0-60 numbers are mostly academic. The 2015 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite does everything a minivan is supposed to do, and a little more besides. It offers three comfortable rows of seats, one of which is removable and makes for a cavernous cargo area. It comes with four power outlets for charging phones, and a large number of cup holders. The loading floor is conveniently low, and the doors slide open to make it easy to get into.

The Honda Odyssey also scored five out of five stars in the NHTSA’s crash tests, and was rated a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS. Fuel economy, at 22 mpg overall and 19 in the city, is about on par with most minivans and tested gas mileage edges out that of the competition from Kia and Chrysler. Until someone builds a hybrid gas electric minivan, this category of cars in unlikely to see much better. Plus, the Odyssey allows you to clean your van even if you can't find a gas station vacuum, a small but probably very helpful advantage.

Warranty/Service: 3-Year/36,000-Mile Limited Warranty, plus a 5-Year/60,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty
