Prepare for Adventure in the New 2018 Honda Odyssey

At Roper Honda, we’ve long been pining for the arrival of the 2018 Odyssey.

And now that this minivan has found its way onto our showroom floor, our Honda dealers can’t wait to introduce it to you. Let’s discover why the all-new Odyssey is going to be your family’s match made in heaven.

The New & Improved Odyssey

A stranger to excellence it’s not, but the Odyssey still embarked on its own self-improvement journey for 2018, bringing back a handful of souvenirs just for you.

Of the Odyssey’s numerous new updates, the most well-intentioned has to be CabinWatch™. Designed to be this generation’s version of the “bus driver,” CabinWatch allows drivers to become Big Brother of the entire second and third row. The Odyssey’s camera system pushes a live feed of middle- and rear-seat passengers straight to the driver’s front display, so a 180-degree head spin (à la Linda Blair) isn’t necessary when the kids are acting up. It pairs nicely with Honda’s unique CabinTalk™ loudspeaker system, which allows drivers to give cabin-wide announcements through the Odyssey’s sound system and rear entertainment headphones.

Also newly added are features like a wireless smartphone charging pad, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can control the rear entertainment system and its streaming apps. The addition of CabinControl™ gives passengers the ability to adjust rear climate settings, control the 10.2-inch rear screen, and send music and destinations to the minivan’s navigation and audio system.

In the front, drivers and passengers will be awarded Honda luxury, including extra soft-touch materials, an ergonomically designed dash, and heated seats. The cockpit features an all-digital instrument cluster that can be customized to display Honda Sensing® alerts, TPMS, app information, incoming call and text details, and more. The central 8-inch touchscreen is bright and complimentary to the luxe atmosphere, and electronic gear shifting buttons are conveniently placed right below the monitor.

Roomy doesn’t come close to describing the 2018 Odyssey. Offering more than 163 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Odyssey one of the most effective family movers in its class. Its claim to fame, however, is the new Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seat™, which is a dream come true for parents. To allow for better third-row access, the middle seat can be completely removed to produce a walk-through effect. The outside seats can be adjusted in any number of ways, by pushing them on each side—no more wet willies and shouting matches for your kids—or forward and back to improve legroom. With the rear seats down and entire second row removed, cargo space is ramped up to 158 cubic feet, which is impressive, to say the least.

An all-new V6 engine sits under the Odyssey’s hood, producing 280 horsepower and returning 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. This puts the Odyssey at the top of the list (shared with the Chrysler Pacifica) as the most efficient minivan on the market.

In all but the base Odyssey LX trim are standard safety features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warnings, forward-collision alerts, active lane monitoring, and automatic emergency braking. Most safety features are available as upgrades with the base Odyssey, however.
