Next Thursday, June 8th, the all new, completely redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey hits the Henley Honda lot. Honda has been showing sneak peeks at the new minivan for a while now and we couldn’t be more excited to have it at our dealership, and for our Honda customers to drive away with it. The all-new Odyssey promises to deliver family-friendly performance, superior comfort, and high-quality technology connectivity.
The 2018 model is the fifth generation Honda Odyssey. This model raises for the performance in the minivan segment, overhauled to meet the changing needs of Canadian families. Modestly priced, the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starts at $34,890.
More powerful engine
The new Honda Odyssey features a new 3.5-liter SOHC direct-injected i-VTEC® V6 engine. The all new engine gives the Odyssey 32 more horsepower than before, as well as new 9-speed and available 10-speed automatic transmissions, with standard paddle shifters.
The 2018 Odyssey offers high-quality performance, as well as high-quality fuel efficiency. The new model scored an improved NRCan fuel economy rating of 12.6/8.4/10.7 city/highway/combined for the trim levels of LX to EXL Navi. The Touring Trim ranked 12.2/8.5/10.6.
Despite only a modest increase in price over the previous 2017 model, the 2018 Odyssey offers greater value than any other Honda Odyssey model. Featuring conveniences such as Honda Sensing® technology, and a new Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The model also features a new Magic Slide 2nd-row seat™. The model also features new premium technologies.
The premium technology options include CabinWatch™, a day/night video monitor, CabinTalk™, an in-car PA system, and 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi. The in-car WiFi option can be used to operate the new Rear Entertainment System with Blu-Ray and streaming video.
