2018 Honda Odyssey Engine
We speak of a “minivan“. The dimensions of the new Odyssey are not yet released, but the predecessor built since 2011 stretched to 5.15 meters. More than enough length for a spacious inner life. That is why we do not want to lose many words about the design with the third side window in the style of the Opel Astra Sports Tourer or the equipment with optional LED headlights and many assistance systems. The only engine, by the way, is a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine with a power of 280 hp, an increase of 32 hp from the current model. Depending on the equipment, a 9-speed automatic transmission or 10-speed automatic transmission is standard.
2018 Honda Odyssey Features
2018 Odyssey minivan will offer standard and available features have also been expanded to include auto high-beam headlights, LED headlights, blind-spot assist, heated and ventilated front seats, multizone audio, heated side mirrors and steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, Sirius 2.0, front and rear parking sensors, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, HondaVac in-vehicle vacuum, Electric Parking Brake with Brake Hold, three-zone automatic climate control, wireless device charging, and Pandora compatibility.
Father sees and hears everything
Let us dedicate ourselves to the premises of the Honda Odyssey. Using a camera, the driver and passenger can see on the eight-inch touch screen in the center console, whether in the ranks two and three mischief is driven. If this is the case, the driver can call the occupants to order via loudspeakers and the headphones of the rear entertainment system. In the rear of the car a 10.2 inch screen is inserted into the ceiling. On it, not only can streaming videos be watched. Also the eternal question “When are we finally there?” Is answered by a special app, which, similar to the airplane, displays the distance to be traveled.
New Odyssey with a smartphone (and children now have a majority), not only rear entertainment and air conditioning can be programmed, but also navigation targets can be sent to the system. This makes an app called “Cabin Control” possible. It also integrates the possibility that up to eight family members can send their favorite music to the audiosystem.
Almost infinite variations are possible with the furniture of the second row of seats. The three seats can be moved or removed. Examples please? Middle seat away, the outer seats pushed far to the side. So two children do not get in the way. Or you can push the two remaining seats together to be the co-driver. Or you leave it with three seats, but pushes the middle seat for similar reasons further forward. Finally, the “Magic Slide” technique is designed to facilitate access to the third row.
