When it comes to fuel efficient vehicles, minivans are not usually factored into the conversation. Honda, however, is ready to change all that with the 2018 Honda Odyssey. The 3.5-liter VTEC V6 engine that powers the Odyssey is still able to produce a remarkable 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. However, that powertrain also manages to acquire a fuel economy of 19/28/22 MPG City/Highway/Combined, which is very impressive for a vehicle of its size.*
Minivans are not often thought of as fuel-efficient models. Nevertheless, Honda set out to make the latest rendition of the Honda Odyssey as eco-friendly as possible. The result is a vehicle that still packs a punch, but is also environmental where it counts. The 3.5-liter VTEC V6 engine of the 2018 Odyssey is capable of the following performance metrics.
Minivans are used for one purpose above all else: transporting a lot of people and/or cargo. Therefore, the vehicle should come with some pretty useful interior features. Thankfully, the 2018 Honda Odyssey does just that, as it comes standard with interior amenities like a color LCD screen and multi-view camera. When you upgrade to a higher trim of the Honda Odyssey, you will receive technologies like the ever-popular HondaVAC vacuum cleaner, great for cleaning up messes left by your crew.
Drivers have come to expect that the features found in the cabin of the Honda Odyssey will be useful for their everyday commute. Honda manages to surpass those expectations with the 2018 iteration of its popular minivan model. The 2018 Honda Odyssey comes standard with some of the most useful interior items that you’ll find anywhere in the industry. Such items include:
Color LCD screen and multi-view rear camera
Audio system with seven speakers
Automatic climate control with air filtration system
Ask the average driver what they look for most in a vehicle and the most common answer will probably be safety. This is exactly why so many drivers choose Honda−a leader in vehicle safety. Just take the 2018 Honda Odyssey for example; it comes standard with advanced systems like Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control. Not to mention, Odyssey drivers can always add the Honda Sensing ® safety suite to their minivan model for even more advanced safety technologies.
Safety is the number one factor for most drivers out there, especially those with families. This is precisely why Honda made certain that the 2018 Honda Odyssey came equipped with a thorough suite of standard safety systems. That way, every single Odyssey driver and passenger has a bit more peace of mind out on their commute.
