2016 Honda Odyssey Adds SE Trim with More Standard Features

2016 Honda Odyssey Se Rear Three Quarters

Nearing the end of its life cycle, the 2016 Honda Odyssey will gain an SE trim meant that bundles a bit more equipment for the money. Fitting in between the EX and EX-L models, the Odyssey SE starts at $34,255 with destination and will go on sale August 4. The SE comes standard with equipment previously available only on higher trims of the Odyssey, including a rear entertainment system with a 115-volt power outlet, satellite radio, and the HondaVac integrated vacuum cleaner that fits into a compartment in the rear cargo area. HondaVac was previously only offered on the top-trim Odyssey Touring Elite, and the entertainment system was a $1,600 option on the Odyssey EX-L, so the SE, which costs $2,550 less than the EX-L, provides a good value proposition for minivan shoppers.

The 2016 Honda Odyssey is otherwise unchanged, with all trims continuing to use a 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. Prices do go up slightly, with the base Odyssey LX going up by $300, to $30,155, and all other trims rising by $150. Honda has a habit of introducing SE trims as its models come closer to a redesign, so this news is a hint that a completely redesigned Honda Odyssey will debut sooner rather than later. Look for more news about the upcoming Honda minivan, which should debut sometime in 2016, over the next few months.
