What Makes the 2018 Honda Odyssey Special? Hint: A Lot!!
Posted on July 14, 2017The 2018 Honda Odyssey has finally arrived, and to much fanfare. There’s a lot of great stuff that’s been included in the redesign, from technology to safety and driver assist features. But what makes the 2018 Honda Odyssey truly special? Well, here are just a few things you’ll love.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey CabinWatch System
You read that right. The new Odyssey has an in-dash Display Audio monitor that integrates a available camera inside the cabin. When it’s engaged, the driver and front passenger can keep an eye on the second and third-row occupants’ activities. Whether it’s a gaggle of birthday party girls or the adult softball team, you’ll be able to see what everyone is up to.
At the press of a button, the driver can talk to the second and third-row passengers through the rear speakers and entertainment system headphones. You can just imagine why you’d need to use CabinTalk in your 2018 Honda Odyssey…
Honda has developed a downloadable app for passengers in the Honda Odyssey (when equipped). The rear seat entertainment system and rear heater and air conditioning controls can be controlled by smartphone via the app, preventing nagging and distracting questions of the driver. As well, CabinControl users can send destinations to Honda navigation systems without bothering the driver! That’s just another way Honda keeps you focused on the task at hand – driving.
Magic Slide Seats
The middle row has been a bone of contention among siblings…until now. Honda’s Magic Slide Seats have four different positions to optimize space and passenger comfort. Buddy Mode, Wide Mode, Super Mode, and Easy Access Mode all let you breathe a little easier in your 2018 Honda Odyssey and eliminate sibling rivalries to boot.
For 2018, the Honda Odyssey adds 35 horsepower in its 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine. Now equipped with 280 horsepower, it’s the most powerful Odyssey yet. The base version includes an efficient 9-speed transmission while upper trims receive a class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission for the best control ever. These, and many more features, are why you should look at the totally redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey. You’ll find it in stock and available now at Jay Wolfe Honda. Oh yeah – our sales team and service are awesome too!
