Everyone’s Happy Place Inside the Odyssey
The Honda Odyssey seats seven to eight (depending on which trim you choose), with creature comforts to please every passenger.
For room to stretch out, the Odyssey offers 40.9 inches of legroom in the first and second rows, 38.1 inches of legroom in the third row, and 163.6 ft3 of total passenger room. In addition, there’s the Magic Slide 2nd-row Seat™ for easier access to the third row.
If you need to store lots of groceries, sports equipment, backpacks, or luggage into the back of the Odyssey, you can do so with the 158 ft3 of cargo volume that you’ll get behind the first row.
For an entertaining ride, you can access all your media options on the 8-inch display audio touchscreen. In addition, simply plug in your compatible smartphone using Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, and gain access to your music library, favorite podcasts, text messages, and navigation.
The rear passengers have plenty of amenities, as well. They can charge their devices using the rear USB port, and they can also watch movies on the 10.2-inch display rear entertainment system. Plus, parents can keep an eye on their children in the back seats using Honda CabinWatch™. And instead of shouting to the back, they can directly communicate with rear-seat passengers through Honda CabinTalk™.
Safety to Protect Your Loved Ones
The 2018 Odyssey was built with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure to help protect your family, should a collision ever occur. It also has an advanced airbag system that includes SmartVent® front side airbags and 3-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensor. With these safety features in place, the Honda Odyssey was able to earn a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.1
There are also lots of safety features that work to help prevent an accident from happening. Honda Sensing® is a comprehensive suite of driver-assisting technologies designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.
Some of the features in Honda Sensing® are:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): If a collision is unavoidable with the vehicle in front of you, CMBS™ will help apply the brakes.
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): If you begin to stray from your lane without using a turn signal, LKAS will adjust the steering to help get you back to your intended lane.
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Maintains not only a set speed, but also a set distance from the vehicle in front of you. Even if traffic slows down, ACC will maintain that pre-set distance.
Smooth Sailing in the Honda Odyssey
The Odyssey comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces the kind of power you need to move this vehicle along—280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, to be exact. For a smooth drive on the highway, there’s the standard 9-speed automatic transmission and available 10-speed automatic transmission, in which both come with Shift-by-Wire and paddle shifters.
This minivan can take on any type of road or weather with the Intelligent Traction Management system. Simply push the SNOW mode button, and the Odyssey will optimize power and handling to give you driving confidence in less-than-perfect conditions.
Plus, you can enjoy your drives for longer, as the Odyssey can achieve an EPA-estimated 19 city/28 highway MPG.2
