Vehicle Reviews: 2018 Honda Odyssey Review

When selecting a new minivan, you can’t just choose something that satisfies drivers. You need something that can satisfy the kids, too. After all, keeping them happy is the key to a perfectly pleasant car ride.

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is sure to satisfy all passengers here in the Washington, Pittsburgh, and McMurray areas. And in this review, our team at Washington Honda will show you exactly how.

Check out our new Honda inventory for the Odyssey.

2018 Honda Odyssey Interior Room


It’s really hard to enjoy a good, long car ride if you’re feeling cramped the entire time. But both drivers and passengers of the 2018 Honda Odyssey should have enough room to stay comfortable.

In total, occupants will have 163.6 cubic feet of space to make use of, including 32.8 cubic feet of cargo space. And up front, parents will have 40.7 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom.

When it comes to seating, all passengers should be happy. Take drivers, for instance. With an 8-way power adjustable seat at your back, you can easily eschew some of the typical aches and pains of a long drive.

In the back, you’ll also have a One-Motion 60/40 Split 3rd-Row Magic Seat®. Fold and reconfigure this seat at your will to make room for extra cargo, or just to make it easier for passengers to get in and out.

2018 Honda Odyssey Safety Features


Undoubtedly, safety is one of the most important facets of any minivan. And the 2018 Honda Odyssey has plenty of it, starting with its Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.

The ACE™ body has been specially designed with extra durable materials and front and rear crumple zones. These fortifications can help not only to absorb collision forces, but to redistribute them away from the passenger cabin, too.

Aside from structural fortifications, you’ll have some helpful technologies abetting your protection. Vehicle Stability Assist™ and traction control, for instance, work hard to help keep your Odyssey on track. Meanwhile, the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines can make getting in and out of tight spaces a breeze.

2018 Odyssey Power & Performance


If the space and amenities are mostly to keep the kids happy, then parents need a nice benefit just for themselves. This is where the 2018 Honda Odyssey powertrain comes into play.

The Odyssey comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine capable of generating 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. That’s definitely a considerable amount of power; however, with the 9-speed automatic transmission, you can still maintain an EPA-estimated 28 highway MPG and 19 city MPG.1

2018 Odyssey drivers also benefit from the Intelligent Traction Management System with Snow mode. Slick and snowy roads aren’t much of a match for this system!
