The 2023 Honda Odyssey is proof that Honda knows how to make a good bestseller. Having received a more extensive suite of updates a short while ago, Honda is leaving things largely unchanged for the 2023 model year, but new trims and a newly introduced scheduled maintenance program aim to keep things fresh for a while longer until the Odyssey gets more extensive updates.
Sport Trim Adds Sinister Vibes To Family Hauling Odyssey
A notable change here for 2023 is that the Odyssey gets an all-new Sport trim to help appeal to those that want more excitement in their trek to the carpool lane. Honda engineers didn’t make any performance alterations here, but this package is instead a style-focused one with gloss-black accents being added to select portions of the van including the grille, wheels, and taillights. The interior goes for a full jet black theme with bright red contrast stitching and trim as well as red ambient lighting at night. The model is based on the EX-L trim and as a result, the bulk of the equipment here is shared with that model. It also doesn’t hurt that the Sport model starts at $42,505.
In addition to the Sport trim, the Odyssey will be the latest Honda model that can be included in Honda’s new Service Pass program. This service follows the same script that we have seen in similar efforts from other automakers with this setup offering free scheduled maintenance and service changes for 2 years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first.)
When Can I Buy One?
The 2023 Honda Odyssey will make its official trek to dealerships towards the end of the year. While the bulk of pricing in the model family only goes up by a few hundred dollars, the loss of the bargain-friendly LX model has caused the pricing ladder as a whole to take a big leap forward with the EX model now roleplaying as the base model. We have put a pricing chart together below detailing some of the changes that buyers will see when crunching through the numbers.
- EX $38,635
- EX-L $41,705
- Sport $42,505
- Touring $45,745
- Elite $50,765
