To hit dealerships across the U.S this spring.
Honda North America has unveiled the all new 2018 Honda Odyssey at the 2017 NAIAS in Detroit, which comes with a new design, revised powertrain and a whole host of new features. The new Odyssey will start arriving at dealerships across the U.S this spring.
The design changes are evolutionary, but the exterior retains the characteristic "lightning bolt" belt line. The changes include a new chrome grille flanked by LED headlamps, a new 3-part intake in the bumper, new alloy rim designs, LED taillamps, and re-profiled rear bumper. Honda has also shed weight by using materials such as high strength steel, magnesium, and aluminium in the body construction.
Inside, the new Odyssey offers better perceived quality with soft-touch materials on the dashboard and door panels, and it gets new features such as an 8-inch high-resolution Display Audio touchscreen interface with CabinWatch and CabinTalk, stain-resistant leather upholstery on the first and second row of seats, 'Magic Slide' second row seats, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, or USB connectivity options, and a 10.2 inch ceiling-mounted display for rear occupants.
Under the hood is a 3.5L V6 with Variable Cylinder Management, which produces 280 horsepower (up by 32 hp). It can be had with a ZF 9- or 10-speed automatic gearbox.
