Would anyone know if the front seats, especially the passenger one, are any different between the Touring and the EX-L? My wife didn't feel the passenger seat in the EX-L we test drove was particularly comfortable, partly because other than back/forth and seat back recline, there wasn't any adjustability in the seat.
The dealer didn't have a Touring we could do a comparison on which is why I'm asking here.

I don't think there is any difference. I'm pretty sure our passenger seat only adjusts in 4 ways.

I find the front seats a bit too hard. The 2nd row seats seem more comfortable to me.

IIRC, tthere is a difference in the grade of leather between these two models.
Nope I don't think there is a difference. The grade and quality of the leather is exactly the same. Note that the leather portions of the seat are only where your legs, butt and back touch the seat. The edge and sides of the seats are all leatherette.

The touring has two seat memory positions versus one for the EX-L. That's about it.

IMHO, the leather unit to unit is not very consistent, take a good look at the exact van you are interested in. I noted one piece of the passenger seat to the dealer just in case it wear or tears early, want it recorded from the beginning that it appears to be a subpar cut on one piece.

I have an EX-L and don't see a memory position switch in my van. Which is odd because my 2005 Acura TL has it.

I guess technically if you never moved the seat that could be considered one memory position, but a 2nd would be helpful as my wife and I are not the same height.

I just checked the 2011 Odyssey's specifications on the Honda website. The Touring/Touring Elite get two seat memory positions that are coordinated with the kets (i.e key 1, key 2). All other trims get nothing.

So it's one of those you have to upgrade to get options!
