Chassis

A 118.1-inch wheelbase, a fully independent suspension design and features such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSAВ®) with traction control contribute to the Honda Odyssey's confident driving performance and comfortable ride. The MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension allows each wheel to maintain its own contact patch with the road, which is a significant benefit compared to less sophisticated torsion beam-style rear suspensions often used on other minivans.
