The New 2018 Odyssey Design: Back and Better Than Ever

2018 Honda Odyssey

The new 2018 Odyssey design offers performance, comfort, and connectivity like never before. This all-new minivan now has a more powerful engine and an advanced transmission to optimize fuel economy and performance, while a significant exterior redesign leads to class-leading power and cabin quietness. You’ll also find added space and family-friendly features that are perfect for long trips and running errands. Read on to learn more about what makes this new Odyssey design so exciting.

To start, the revamped 2018 Odyssey design now comes with standard Honda Sensing® technology, a Display Audio system, smartphone connectivity, and the ingenious Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™ that enhance convenience. This means that you can not only keep the kids entertained in the rear seat, but it also allows you to hook up your smartphone to the car to access important information, apps, and to lock/unlock and remote start.

Under the hood, Honda added a new 3.5-liter SOHC direct-injected i-VTEC® V6 engine that gets 32 horsepower more than its predecessor. You also get up to 19/28/22 mpg city/hwy/combined when properly equipped.* The new minivan also comes with your choice between a 9-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission with standard paddle shifters.

The 2018 Odyssey is also made with comfort in mind. This model is noticeably quieter to provide a low-stress environment for parents as they drive. You can thank the triple-sealed doors, acoustic glass, and aerodynamic doors for this quiet ride. Plus, with Active Noise Control technology, the Odyssey is the perfect place to relax. With a Top Safety Pick rating from the NHTSA, you’ll definitely be at ease when you’re behind the wheel.*

Honda at the Chicago Auto Show

Honda has a habit of stealing the spotlight, no matter where it happens to be. The Chicago Auto Show was no exception with the full lineup making an appearance. The new Odyssey minivan showed off its new design with pleasure. Meanwhile, enthusiasts raved about two new concept vehicles.

While the Odyssey doesn’t arrive until later this year, the minivan certainly turned heads at the Chicago Auto Show. Sleek curves and a tapered rear end offer a refined style while the interior was certainly something to be proud of.

The family-oriented interior boasted a plethora of space as well as a whole host of technology features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. As always, safety comes standard and the in-car vacuum offers parents a convenient way to clean up.

Project 2&4

Drawing inspiration from its motorcycle roots, Honda debuted a concept vehicle unlike any other. Known as the Honda Project 2&4, the motorcycle-car features four wheels, a single seat, and a motorcycle engine that delivers 212 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque. While it weighs in at only 900 pounds, it’s still legal to drive on public roads.

Project 2&4 comes from a design competition between Honda’s designers and serves as a nod to the heritage of the Japanese brand.

We here at Hardin County Honda are pumped to see what Honda brings to the next auto show!

The Honda Odyssey is one of the best-selling minivans on the road, and it’s clear that the model will keep that title, now that the 2018 Honda Odyssey debut has taken center stage at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

One of the greatest upgrades in the new Honda Odyssey is its new seating configuration, which includes a Magic Slide second row seat, allowing five seating positions and making it easy for passengers to access the third row.

Honda estimates that the 2018 Honda Odyssey will lead its class in fuel efficiency, though the official data hasn’t been released yet. The previous Odyssey bested its competition in fuel economy and the new Odyssey is nearly 100 pounds lighter this year.

Lastly, we learned at the auto show that the new Honda Odyssey will be powered by a 3.5-liter direct injection V6 engine, allowing the model to get up to 280 horsepower, compared to its predecessor’s 248 horsepower.
