The 2017 Honda Odyssey is a minivan that knows just what families want in a vehicle. The spacious design and ample amount of safety features add to its overall appeal. It seems critics from across the automotive industry agree. Here’s what some of them are saying about the Honda Odyssey.
Motor Trend cited the Honda Odyssey’s flexible seating arrangements and plentiful cargo space in its overall 4/5 rating. There’s plenty of storage space thanks to the plethora of pockets and cup holders. The Odyssey also offers a smooth ride and excellent handling, even on bumpy roadways.
Edmunds.com saw fit to note on the Honda Odyssey’s expansive yet quiet cabin and versatile third-row seating arrangements. The standard V6 engine offers refined performance and excellent fuel economy. On top of that, the minivan’s handling is, according to reviewers, similar to that of a midsize sedan.
U.S. News & World Report found the interior to be of superior quality. A number of useful cabin features and versatile seating arrangements reinforce what other critics said. An acoustic windshield comes standard in some 2017 Honda Odyssey models, further reducing the minimal cabin noise.

The 2017 Civic Si is a sporty sedan that’s returning for the latest model year. This model, known for its impressive performance and design, is being released alongside the Civic Type R. Both the Type R and the Civic Si are highly anticipated this year, building on the tenth-generation of Civic design to improve various facets of driving.
According to Forbes, the latest Civic will have a 25 percent increase in torsional rigidity and a 100-pound weight reduction, two aspects that will carry over to the new Si version. The Si will receive a few added features including a revamped front bumper, 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, center exhaust outlet, and a lower ride height.
“A car like the Civic Si certainly benefits from increased power, but the Si’s real focus is the total driving experience. Enhancements to the Si’s suspension and wheel/tire package keep the 2017 Si true to previous models’ reputation,” remarks Forbes auto-writer Karl Brauer.
In addition to the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine you’ll find under the hood, there are some exciting new aspects to the Civic Si include the brand’s first use of adaptive dampers. There’s a standard limited-slip differential, selectable “Normal” and “Sport” modes, and special Si badging for the interior. There’s nothing quite like the new Civic Si.

While the new Honda Civic isn’t a lightweight when it comes to performance, the upcoming Civic Type R definitely puts it to shame. The Japanese automaker revamped the entirety of the Civic a few years ago, but left enthusiasts wanting a Type R as well. Now thrill seekers and speed demons are about to get their wish. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is officially heading to American shores!
Europe and parts of Asia have had their own Honda Civic Type R for years now, but the North American market did not. Instead, we got red-badged Civic Sport models and video game simulations. Now the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is officially arriving on American shores in all of its glory. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers a heart-pounding 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque via 91 octane fuel. That engine comes mated to a six-speed manual engine control unit.
The entire model rolls out on 20-inch aluminum wheels equipped with Brembo front brake calipers, cross-driller rotors, and a suspension tuned for the track. Expect pricing for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R to come closer to the official launch date. Until then, prepare yourself for a hotshot unlike any other.
We here at Bill Walsh Honda can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new Civic Type R!
