2018 Honda Odyssey Details
As the fifth generation of this Honda model, the 2018 Honda Odyssey improves upon many of its trademark strong features. You’ll still find three rows of seating, but with smoother Magic Slide™ functionality in the second row for more flexibility in seating arrangements and getting in and out of the vehicle. There is also ample leg room and the options for added cargo space expand when you remove the second-row seats or fold down the third row.
Available in six trim levels — 2018 Honda Odyssey LX, 2018 Honda Odyssey EX, 2018 Honda Odyssey EX-L, 2018 Honda Odyssey EX-L with Navigation & RES, 2018 Honda Odyssey Touring, and 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite — there are many ways to optimize the driving experience to best match your criteria. All trims come powered by a 3.5-liter, six-cylinder engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Moving up trim levels brings the option of a ten-speed automatic transmission and the capacity to seat eight passengers instead of seven in the base trim. Overall, you’ll appreciate the responsive handling and enjoy driving this not-so-ordinary minivan.
