2018 Honda Odyssey Edmonton AB
The Honda Odyssey was the first major redesign or update that the manufacturer announced for the 2018 model year, so we’ve already covered it in the past. But we wanted to touch on the 2018 Honda Odyssey in Edmonton AB once again, now that it’s been released and is available right here at Wheaton Honda, so that we can refresh your memory on exactly what’s different. Analyzing these enhancements and upgrades should tell you exactly why we believe the Odyssey is the best minivan available on the market, and we think by the end you’ll agree.
Specs & Features of the 2018 Odyssey
So, to highlight a few of the specs & features that make the all-new Odyssey such an excellent choice, we’ll start with the new powertrain options. The Odyssey’s engine is still a 3.5L V6 engine, but it’s been enhanced to offer 32 more horsepower than the previous generation model. Additionally, you can opt for one of two different transmissions: a 9-speed automatic or, for the first time ever in a Honda vehicle, a 10-speed automatic. Paddle shifters come standard, giving you added options even when you’re behind the wheel.
Of course, cabin versatility is just as important as power in a vehicle like the Odyssey, if not more so. The Odyssey offers plenty of flexibility, thanks in a major way to the Magic Slide seats that allow selection from a multitude of different sitting positions, as well as features like CabinWatch and CabinTalk that allow you to keep your eyes, ears and words on the people in the back.
The Honda Sensing Safety Suite of Technologies is certainly a large bonus in any vehicle, but especially one like the Odyssey, in which the suite is standard. There are plenty of other features we could highlight, as we could talk about the new Odyssey all day, like wi-fi connectivity and more. Feel free to give us a call if you’re interested in an Odyssey of your own!
