Face it, you're going to have to clean your car once your tailgating party is over. That's where the Odyssey's available built-in vacuum cleaner comes in handy.
"For us, the coolest feature in all of the winning cars is the Odyssey's vacuum cleaner in back," Olsen says. "We tested it and it works pretty well."Cars.com editors also like the Odyssey's optional rear-seat entertainment system, which plays content from Blu-ray discs, Netflix (NFLX) and other sources on a video screen big enough to see from outside the minivan. Lastly, Olsen says the Odyssey -- which Honda (HMC) significantly refreshed for 2014 -- also has plenty of room for football fans and cargo. Some versions of the minivan can hold eight people.
