There’s a lot to get excited about with the 2021 Honda lineup. There have been quite a few changes and some new features added. Some of the most notable vehicles this year will be the 2021 Odyssey and 2021 Pilot, but let’s take a look at everything new coming to the latest lineup.
2021 Honda Pilot
The Pilot continues to be a fan favorite for families in need of seven- and eight-passenger seating. For 2021, the Pilot adds a Special Edition trim level. This model includes a black grille, black roof rails, 20-inch black wheels and special badging. You can find it sitting between the existing EX-L and Touring trims.
Additionally, Honda made the once available nine-speed automatic with stop/start technology standard on all models. This transmission replaces the previous six-speed automatic. On top of that, dual-zone climate control is now standard on all Pilot SUVs.
2021 Honda Odyssey
Moving onto the popular minivan option, the new Odyssey features an updated grille and front end that includes LED headlights. All models also come with a rear-seat reminder system.
To improve on-road safety, Honda now includes the Sensing Suite of active safety features standard with all trim levels. In addition, this system now comes with automatic emergency braking, as well as traffic sign recognition and pedestrian detection.
Furthermore, more comfort features have been added. In the EX models and higher, you will receive illuminated USB ports. EX-L and higher trims get updated seats, second-row pockets, front passenger power lumbar support and unique contrast stitching.
2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition
The limited-edition Civic Type R is only available to 600 customers. It comes with specially tuned dampers, Sport Cup 2 tires and forged aluminum BBS wheels. Because this model aims to reduce noise and weight, it no longer has rear wipers, rear heater ducts and a tonneau cover.
2021 Honda Insight
Not too much has changed with the Insight model, but the company did add an important safety feature. On EX and Touring models, the previous LaneWatch side camera is replaced with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts instead.
