Agile isn't exactly a term that's commonly associated with your typical family van. Usually, these vehicles put a premium on comfort and space rather than nimbleness. It makes sense. After all, how often will you be tackling twisties on the way home from the grocery, right?

Now, the Honda Odyssey isn't your average, everyday seven-seater. At first glance, yes, it flaunts proportions and styling common of the segment. The same goes for the interior, which features the same niceties and materials you'd expect from its competitors. Sit in the driver's seat though, and you'll know there's something more underneath its humble soccer mom image.

It handles very impressively for a van--borderline sporty, even. Admittedly, it does sacrifice some of its comfort to achieve this. There is some roll, and bumps are relatively more pronounced compared to some of its competition, but it's nothing unbearable.

Honda's done a standup job of mixing things up here. Want to learn more about the Honda Odyssey? Just press play on the short video embedded above.
