Seating capacity of the 2017 Honda Odyssey
If you have a big family, then the Honda Odyssey may be the right minivan for you. Here we will talk about the seating capacity of the 2017 Honda Odyssey. Find out if your family will fit in this amazingly configurable minivan.
Which Odyssey trims offer seating for eight?
For 2017, there are a total of six trim levels. What’s truly impressive is that almost all of these trims offer seating for up to eight people. The base model LX trim is the only trim that’s different as it seats seven. The EX, SE, EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite all have a seating configuration that can handle eight adults.
What is the multi-function 2nd row seat?
The secret that allows the Odyssey to have seating for up to eight people on the EX trim and above, is the inclusion of the multi-function 2nd row seat. This allows two people to sit in the front row, three in the second, and three in the third, which gives you your full capacity of eight.
On top of that, each seat in the second row can move forward and back, and be removed independently. The outboard seats in the second row can move horizontally away from the center seat to give everyone a little more room.
Don’t need the middle second row seat, but don’t want to remove it? It can fold down to provide a center console for the second row that includes three cup holders and a storage bin. This middle seat can also accommodate a child seat if need be.

Is the Honda Odyssey third row removable?
The third row seats in the 2017 Honda Odyssey are not removable, but they do have a trick up their sleeves. Instead of being removed, the third row seats can fold backward and become level with the floor. This way you still have a nice flat area to load up with cargo.
On top of that, with the seats in their upright position, you have a deep well behind them to provide even more room for cargo. This is especially useful when you are headed out on a family trip. The interior of the Honda Odyssey adapts to your passenger and cargo needs.
