2013 Honda Odyssey: What's Changed


Most significant changes: A backup camera is now standard across the lineup 

Price change: TBA 

On sale: This fall 

Which should you buy, 2012 or 2013? The 2012 is the winner of's Ultimate Minivan Shootout ; there's no need to wait for 2013. 

For the 2013 model year, the Honda Odyssey gets a standard backup camera on all trims. Previously, a backup camera was only available on the EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite trims. For 2013, the Pilot , Accord , Crosstour , CR-Z and Ridgeline also get a standard backup camera.

Besides the backup camera, and some minor, yet to be specified, content changes on some trims, the Odyssey carryovers to 2013 relatively unchanged. The 2013 Odyssey will be available in LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite trims.

The 2013 Honda Odyssey goes on sale later this fall. There's no word yet on pricing.
