2018 Honda Odyssey
The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the new and better version of the absolute hit model in minivans. While there are no significant changes comparing to 2016 Honda Odyssey in terms of the size of the car, the interior and exterior design are much better. In this car review, we will outline the best of the new features that come with the model, and the improvements that they bring to the experience.
This new model comes with an improved design of the sides and a roof design that makes you feel like you are floating on air. The car is also equipped with chrome on the sides and this makes it look futuristic and visually superior. LED lights on the back and the sides also add to the deformed look of the 2018 Honda Odyssey.
We cannot miss mentioning the sleek and stylish design of the new model in this 2018 Honda Odyssey review. There is a feeling of grandeur coming with the car, which is due to the longer body. This form brings improved aerodynamics and efficiency.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey is designed to answer the needs of a big family as it comes with eight seats. The new addition to the design is the sliding functionality of the mid row of seats, which allows for several different seating schemes in the vehicle. This makes the Odyssey perfect for all kinds of groups, and creates a comfortable atmosphere for chatting and conversation during the ride. Another useful use of this feature is the ease of access it provides when you need to fit a lot of luggage in the car. The “Magic-Slide” feature is one of the most remarkable new additions to the features list of the 2018 Honda Odyssey.
Two other improvements, which bring additional comfort, are the CabinWatch and CabinTalk functionalities. They are designed in order to promote and ease communication and allow for the monitoring of everyone siting in the back, which is extremely useful for parents, and families. Both of these features are accessed through an eight-inch display mounted to the dashboard.
Command and Security
The 2018 Honda Odyssey price tag is in the upper range; however, this is justified by the 3.5-litre V-6 engine under the hood and the superb security and safety systems installed in the car. The engine brings out 280 HP and is equipped with either a nine or a ten-speed automatic gearbox. All these features make the Odyssey a great runner. The 2018 Honda Odyssey mpg should be through the roof with the improvement of the engine and the superior gearbox; however, there are no official results yet. This is also partly due to the improved aerodynamics, coming from the redesign of the body. The model also features an optimized steering system, and a relatively soundproof cabin, because of the acoustic glass and the door sealing systems.
Another thing that Honda improved on from the former model is the Honda Sensing safety system, which has improved electronic sensors. All models from EX upwards feature a collision mitigation braking system, road departure sensors, cruise control, and lane assistant.
Overall, Honda went all out on the newest Odyssey model, improving on both style and design, and features regarding comfort and safety.
