The redesign of the fifth generation 2018 Honda Odyssey looks very similar to the previous generation and has a similar footprint. Although it has not increased, the minivan is now stronger and smarter.
Exterior and Interior
The exterior of this large minivan will change but not much. This will be in a baseball stadium of a slight renovation that is a completely new design. The basic shape will remain essentially the same, but the new version will have lighter lines and a more wind resistant appearance. Only Honda can make the minivan-class vehicle very sporty, and that’s exactly what they did with the new Honda Odyssey 2018. The large grille and the large LED headlamps have become the Honda trademark, so the 2018 Honda Odyssey is no exception. The large doors immediately tell you that it’s really a family car. The deck is identical to the Honda Pilot, but has introduced many more aluminum components, which should make up to 500 pounds lighter than before. A lighter car should improve the noise, vibration and hardness standards, so that the ride should be more comfortable. The dimensions remain approximately identical to those of the previous model and the rear door remains slipped.
The interior of 2018 Honda Odyssey will be full of new stuff and we can say it has been done more inside the vehicle than from the outside, but we do not need any bad news, especially when talking of these vehicles. What Honda wants you to apologize for is its new second row magic slide seat that allows for a very simple reconfiguration according to your needs, either by accessing the third row even if one or two child seats already mounted in row 2 or the standard use in which the driver’s side seat of the vehicle slides forward with the backrest of the forward-inclined back to facilitate access to the third row. In addition, in the cockpit, you will find some connectivity options that will allow you to bring your attention. One is CabinWatch, which uses a camera to check the two back lines, predicting the image on a screen at the front. There is also CabinTalk which allows the driver or seat traveler before speaking easily to second and third row guests through the audio speaker system. Honda also uses a variety of digital driving aids as standard in the expected parameters to account for 95 percent of sales. This is a collision warning, a flexible control of cruise ships, a precaution of the track. As always, Honda has paid the most attention inside the car and this time the company has surpassed, especially when talking about safety features. If you are a family guy with a lot of kids, there is no need to think twice, this is the car for you.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey features a 3.5-liter V-6 engine under the hood. It is now 32 horsepower, bringing the maximum power to 280 healthy ponies through the addition of direct injection technology and other adjustments that accelerates better, pass and mountaineering. A new standard nine-speed transmission (or a 10-speed unit for the Touring and Elite models) maintains fuel economy in line with the previous generation at 22 mpg combined. That’s 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg highway.
