2018 Honda Odyssey: The Minivan Is Not Dead!

Published on March 29 2018

When it comes to three-row vehicles, few can compete with the spaciousness and welcoming nature of a minivan. The 2018 Honda Odyssey is offered in LX, EX, EX-RES, EX-L RES, EX-L Navi, and Touring trims.

Helpful standard exterior features include heated power mirrors and LED taillights. EX-Res models wear a rear roofline spoiler and a moonroof, and EX-L Res models have tilt-down side mirrors for easier reverse driving. Dressing up, the EX-L Navi wears two-tone aluminum alloy wheels. Touring models add LED fog lights, power-folding mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers.

Drive with Confidence in the 2018 Honda Odyssey in Ottawa, Ontario

Under the hood, a 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 develops 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the wheels, and it fetaures Grade Logic Control for safer downhill travel. Variable cylinder management reduces waste during highway travel. The EcoAssist system and available idle stop also improve gas mileage.

The pre-collision braking system recognises emergency braking and responds with more help. It is paired with a forward collision warning system that keeps drivers alert to dangers. A lane warning system is designed to prompt the driver to straighten up. If it fails, the minivan is programmed to assist steering, straightening its trajectory. A similar system helps with road departures.

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is Crafted For Families in Ottawa, Ontario

Let’s look at the ways the Odyssey serves the family. When your hands are full, it’s no small thing to have power-sliding side doors or a hands-free power liftgate. Magic slide seats provide quick entry to the third row. An advanced entertainment system places a 10.2-inch screen where the kids can see it. Not only does it have a Blu-Ray player, but it now has embedded streaming media apps.

Drivers appreciate push button start and the dual-zone automatic climate system. LX models have eight-way power seats, and EX bump that up to 12-way power chairs. Heated front seats are standard and you can also get second-row heated seats and a heated steering wheel. The dash touchscreen provides the latest entertainment features including access to more apps via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The touchscreen’s new software makes it more like a tablet. 

Parents are always happy to have the built-in vacuum. The Odyssey is one of only two vehicles on the market to have this feature. The newest feature for parents is CabinTalk, an in-car microphone system that allows you to talk to the kids behind you without turning around.
