2018 Honda Odyssey: Could This Be Honda's Best Minivan?
First revealed at this year's Detroit Auto Show in January, Honda America officially announced the all-new 2018 Odyssey in the US yesterday. According to Honda America, the 2018 Odyssey brings a wide new variety of new features and technologies for 2018.
The 2018 Odyssey comes in uniquely versatile new Magic Slide second-row seat, new CabinWatch and CabinTalk technologies, new display Audio touchscreen with Honda-developed OS and 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity. Also, comes with new Rear Entertainment System with streaming video and Honda Sensing safety and other driver-assistive technologies.
Powering the 2018 Honda Odyssey is a 3.5-litre direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management, coupled to either a 9-speed auto or a newly-developed 10-speeder depending on the selected trim level.Fuel and power efficiency is courtesy of its direct-injection system, which features cylinder deactivation, variable valves, and improved start-stop system.
Furthermore, there is a new Cabin Control app that offers passengers limited control of some of the functions, as its name indicates. This is great for kids since they can add or stream music, adjust the climate, suggest destinations for navigation or control the rear entertainment system, however, adults are in control, and they have the final say. All mobile devices that the driver and passengers can carry are charged by 3x high power USB ports around the cabin, several 12v power points and an 110V inverter beneath the dash.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey price starts at $29,990 for the base LX trim and can increase up to $46,670 for the loaded Elite model, as this car challenges the Chrysler Pacifica. Furthermore, the 2018 Odyssey strikes us as the best pick for shoppers with young children or big families. The sliding second-row seats are useful, and the rear-seat camera system will give new parents some welcome peace of mind.
