How Quality & Value Were Measured

The U.S. News "Best Cars for the Money" award spotlights vehicles that give you that perfect balance of quality, features, performance, and comfort. It gives you everything you want with the price and long-term ownership costs that you can afford.

To select the cars that get this award, the consensus opinion of the automotive press is looked at. Not only do you get a look at what professional automotive journalists think of the car, but you also get insight into a vehicle's safety and reliability.

Additionally, U.S. News turned to TrueCar to measure value. This company tracks real-time transaction prices for new cars. Since the winning cars are good values over the long haul, Vincentric was also used to gather total cost of ownership data. This data looks at fuel, insurance, and repair costs over five years to help determine how much owning a specific car would cost you.

It has 41.3 inches of front legroom, 40.4 inches of rear legroom, and 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. Plus, it has up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down.

The new Honda Odyssey has lots of user-friendly technology to enjoy. An available feature is Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.
