A Brand-New Look for 2018
The first thing that drivers in Centennial, Aurora, and Denver will notice about the Honda Odyssey is its new interior and exterior design.
The Odyssey was redesigned for 2018 and now includes even more design features, like a sporty front fascia and LED headlights and tail lights. The overall body of the minivan looks sleeker as well, thanks to the new lighting bolt belt line. This is designed to provide a more sophisticated look as it conceals the sliding door tracks.
On the inside, the 2018 Honda Odyssey includes more elegant and luxurious features, such as optional stain-resistant leather second- and third-row seats. It also comes with more premium materials and amenities to ensure comfort for everyone on board even during those long family road trips.
Above all, the minivan has more than enough interior space for everyone and everything you need. It can fit up to eight people and has up to 163.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. The 2018 Honda Odyssey also has a maximum cargo capacity of 158 cubic feet behind the first row of seats.
Honda Odyssey Features & Technologies
On top of a brand-new look, the Odyssey includes more advanced technologies. One of the features you can find in this minivan is the upgraded rear entertainment system. It comes with a 10.2-inch screen, a Blu-ray™ player, and built-in streaming apps to keep everyone in the back occupied and entertained, so you never have to hear your kids ask, “Are we there yet?” again.
And if you’re tired of raising your voice or turning your head to check up on your children in the back seats, CabinTalk™ and CabinWatch™ can help. CabinTalk™ is an in-car PA system. Once activated, you’ll be able to talk to your rear-seat passengers without yelling.
CabinWatch™ is a rear-seat monitor that uses a camera to help you see everything that’s going on in the back. Plus, it includes night vision so you can keep an eye on everyone, even in the dark. Just turn on the system, and the camera will display a live feed of the back seats right on the infotainment system.
Best of all, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is equipped with the following driver-assist safety features for peace of mind and protection whenever you’re behind the wheel:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Blind Spot Information System
Honda Odyssey Performance Specs
The redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey includes an upgraded 3.5L V6 engine that produces a robust 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It also has technologies like the Eco Assist™ System and an available 10-speed automatic transmission to create a seamless and efficient drive.
