2018 Honda Odyssey
For parents on the move, there's no minivan more family-friendly than the 2018 Honda Odyssey. It's ready for anything. The Odyssey's three rows of spacious seating provide comfy accommodations for up to eight passengers, while performance is swift and easy to handle. Add in thoughtful features and smart technology and you have a family vehicle that does everything that a family really needs.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey is still the heavyweight champion of the minivan world. With three rows of comfy seating, up to eight passengers can settle in for a pleasant road trip. Your little ones will like the power-sliding doors - they can get in and out with little effort. Flip down the second- and third row seats for up to 155.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space - more than enough for a cache of baby strollers and grocery bags. If you feel like doing a little home improvement, you can even stow a couple sheets of 4-by-8-foot plywood in the Odyssey.
More than the usual minivan comfort features, though, the 2018 Honda Odyssey was designed to give modern parents the upper hand during traditionally challenging trips. The new rear-seat surveillance system displays a wide-angle shot on your central touchscreen. It even has night-vision, giving you extra peace of mind after dark. Keep an eye on your gang and quash any brawls before they even get started or keep close watch on a baby in a car seat. And, when it's time to make yourself heard, you can use the Odyssey's intercom system to project your voice over the cabin's speakers or headphone set.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey stays true to the brand's reputation for safety. With the Honda Sensing suite, you can nip danger in the bud. The forward collision warning system does more than tell you when you need to slow down - it can actively apply the brakes to help you avoid an accident. The road departure mitigation system senses when you've strayed outside the lines and guides you back into the appropriate lane.
Compared to last year's model, the new Odyssey is all set to speed into highway traffic. The engine's new bump in horsepower means easy acceleration, which leads to increased peace of mind on the highway. Not only that, but the Odyssey remains fuel-efficient, earning 19 city/28 highway mpg. That's about the same as last year, so the more-powerful engine doesn't cost you any extra cash at the gas pump.
The Elite trim of the Honda Odyssey has all the bells and whistles, with everything from heated and ventilated front seats to a wireless phone charger to a hands-free power liftgate to make life on the go easier for families. An 11-speaker audio system and an integrated rear entertainment package rounds it out, as does the unique HondaVAC, which allows drivers to clean up minor spills in the cargo area with a built-in vacuum system.

The 2018 Honda Odyssey takes family-friendliness to new extremes. Even experienced minivan owners have never seen its equal. Of course, it's got all the usual minivan features - like three rows of spacious seating and an optional rear-seat entertainment system. But the new Odyssey goes to appealing lengths with its smart surveillance system and intercom options. Increased cargo space makes the daily grind of family life easier--which seems to be the successfully implemented goal of the all new 2018 Honda Odyssey.
