The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the first 2018 Honda model to roll into dealerships and this vehicle is more than ready to face the future. This minivan has exterior features that make being on the go a breeze as well as available technology that prioritizes safety and satisfied passengers. Learn more about this latest vehicle from Honda and how it fits in with your lifestyle.
Exterior for adventure
The minivan has to be one of the most stereotyped vehicles on the market in the U.S. What many people do not know is how versatile minivans actually are. When carrying armloads of luggage or gear out to the Honda Odyssey, the available Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate makes it a cinch to open the rear cargo area without setting anything on the ground. Parents carrying sleepy children to the van will appreciate the power sliding doors that make getting into the passenger area much easier.
When seats are folded to use more of the Odyssey for cargo, the power sliding doors also make accessing all areas of the backseat and its payload more convenient. Drivers looking to make the Honda Odyssey an even better road trip vehicle should consider Honda Genuine Accessories like roof rails that make mounting accessories like bikes or a roof box more secure.
Technology for life
When industry experts talk about technology, a fair amount of them are talking about infotainment systems. While the Honda Odyssey is equipped with its own systems to help smartphones connect with the van, a lot of the technology in this vehicle is actually focused on keeping passengers safe. The Honda Sensing® suite of available features makes sure that drivers are constantly aware of changing road conditions and obstacles. For example, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) applies the Odyssey’s brakes if it senses an otherwise unavoidable collision ahead.*
When you are driving a van full of passengers, sometimes it is helpful to be able to see what is going on behind you (especially if someone is screaming about another passenger poking them). Honda CabinWatch™, which is standard on the Touring and Elite models, lets drivers see all of their passengers, even in the dark. Odyssey vans equipped with Honda CabinTalk™ can talk to their passengers in the back seat, even those wearing headphones, without yelling.
With its versatile exterior and cutting-edge technology, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is ready to take on the next model year in style.
*CMBS™ cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
