The minivan segment may not be as populated as it once was but there’s still plenty of heat among the remaining competitors. Chrysler raised the bar with the new Pacifica and now Honda is responding with a monstrous, tech-savvy, safe minivan of its own. The fifth-generation Honda Odyssey debuted at the Detroit Auto Show and looks to be a serious competitor.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey boasts all the technologies a modern minivan should have. The new model will boast a long list of in-car apps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, video streaming, and more. The new model will even feature 4G Wi-Fi!
Modern families need a minivan that can adjust to their lifestyle and the Odyssey delivers with flexible seating and stain-resistant leather upholstery.
“In all aspects of its design, the new Odyssey is made to keep every member of the family happy, no matter the seating position, no matter the destination,” said John Mendel, executive vice president, America Honda Motor Co.
The Odyssey isn’t without its powertrain updates. The new model will boast an available 10-speed automatic transmission designed for smoother shifting and higher fuel economy.
