"One of the Odyssey's key distinguishing features -- and a leading reason it has been victorious in all but one Car and Driver minivan comparison test that it has participated in since 1999 -- is a sense of verve from behind the wheel absent from most practicality-first vehicles. This is something chief engineer Chad Harrison promises was again a priority. It shows: The ride feels taut, snubbing vertical motions on the Elite model's 19-inch wheel-and-tire package, which was the only model we drove. Last year, 18-inch wheels were the top upgrade, but now they're standard and an inch larger than before, and all Odyssey wheels are aluminum. Although it shares a platform with the Pilot and the Ridgeline, the minivan gets a rear suspension all its own -- a multilink design that includes, for the first time, an anti-roll bar. The dampers are situated more vertically and their mounts are pushed out as far as possible to enable a deep cargo hold."
