Traditionally when we think of minivans we think of families. Specifically families with young children heading off to soccer games or en route to vacations. We think of luggage in the back, kids buckled in the middle, and parents sitting up front, hoping for a peaceful ride. And, traditionally when people are in the market for a minivan, they’re looking for safety. Safety followed closely by space. They’re looking for safe travels with plenty of space for cargo and kids. That’s #minivanlife.
But what if #minivanlife has more to offer than safety and space? Perhaps, that’s just what the folks at Honda asked themselves when they designed the all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey, because they designed a minivan that delivers safety, space, comfort, connectivity, and even a built-in feature designed to keep the peace.
The Honda Odyssey, America’s best-selling minivan for the past seven years, is back and better than ever. Here’s a sampling of what the 2018 model, the fifth generation Odyssey, has to offer.
- Standard Safety Technology
Standard on all Odyssey trims is Honda Sensing technology — an intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies that keeps you safe by alerting you to, and actively avoiding, preventable traffic collisions.
- Space for Space
The 2018 Honda Odyssey has enough cargo space to lay down a whole stack of 4-by-8 sheets of plywood. Step aside pickup trucks, the Odyssey is here to work.
- Extreme Comfort
From an ergonomically designed instrument panel, leather-trimmed interior, and soft-touch premium materials scattered throughout the cabin, to standard heated seats and Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control System, you and your passengers will ride comfortably whatever the road conditions.
- Endless Connectivity
You can turn the Odyssey into your own mobile hotspot and with CabinControl’s Social Playlist everyone onboard can create dynamic music playlists through the CabinControl app. With Honda CabinWatch — standard on Touring and Elite trims — a cabin facing camera, complete with night vision, allows the driver to see the cabin (even the way, way back!) without turning around. And that’s just the beginning! There’s a host of available features that enhance the ride including: a 10.2-inch dropdown video display for music and video streaming, Honda CabinTalk so the driver may speak with the passengers in the back rows, Apple CarPlay, and more!
- Keep the Peace, Level 10
With Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats — standard on EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims — in-cabin fighting is a thing of the past! Plus, you can easily access the 3rd-row and move the seat within reach of the first row, the benefits of which are perhaps best seen in this epic monster battle.
Head into our Dublin Honda showroom and see everything the 2018 Odyssey has to offer. Stop by and experience the minivan that’s redefined and redesigned.
Until next time–have fun and drive safely!
