The new Odyssey is replete with creature comforts and high-tech gadgetry to make things more convenient for drivers and passengers, including the following exciting amenities:
CabinTalk: One of the Odyssey’s incredible new features for 2018 is the available CabinTalk in-car PA system. This state-of-the-art system lets drivers talk directly to passengers sitting in the backseat and can even override connected headphones and be heard through the rear speakers when drivers need to get the attention of those riding in back.
Smart Entry: Standard in all but the base model, Smart Entry with Walk Away lets drivers lock and unlock the Odyssey’s doors without ever removing the key fob from their pockets or purses. As you walk away from the vehicle, the doors will automatically re-lock once you’re about 8 feet away.
Automatic Tailgate: A height-adjustable power tailgate with programmable height comes standard in the top three Odyssey trim levels, automatically opening and closing with the touch of a button. A hands-free tailgate feature is further added for the Touring and Elite trims, easily opening with a simple wave of a foot beneath the bumper.
Navigation: An available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System helps drivers find their destinations with ease. This Garmin-based system features HD Digital Traffic, 3D renderings of terrain and buildings, predictive local search, a lane guidance split screen for exits and road signs, and more.
Hands-Free Convenience: From standard Bluetooth connectivity to a standard SMS text message function, prime hands-free technologies help drivers travel more safely behind the wheel of the Odyssey. Access your smartphone features without the distraction of looking down at a phone, and stay connected while also staying safe. And speaking of your cell phone, there is also an available wireless phone charger—standard in the Elite trim—that eliminates the need for bulky adapters and cords.
HomeLink: A HomeLink remote system comes standard on the top three Odyssey trim levels, letting drivers conveniently control in-home features from inside the vehicle, including garage doors, security systems, and lighting systems.
Many drivers who opt for a minivan will be motoring with children in tow some of the time or even all the time. Whether you’re driving with kids or adults, or flying solo, the Honda Odyssey is equipped to keep you well entertained for the long haul!
Features like Bluetooth streaming audio, an MP3/auxiliary input jack, and a radio data system come standard to bolster your listening pleasure, while the higher trim levels offer audio-boosting amenities like multi-zone audio, a Display Audio touchscreen, SiriusXM Radio, and HD Radio.
Mobile hot spot capability is an exciting new feature onboard the Odyssey and is offered on the top two trim levels. Turn your Odyssey into a mobile hot spot and keep kids entertained on their wireless devices for hours!
An available advanced rear-entertainment system is also offered for the Odyssey, featuring a Blu-ray player and built-in streaming apps to keep your brood happy and occupied on long trips.
A new feature for this year’s Odyssey is the available CabinWatch system, which lets drivers safely keep an eye on young passengers in the backseat while traveling. This system features a camera with night vision, so even in the dark you can make sure all is well with your passengers.
A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines comes standard for all trims, helping drivers back up the Odyssey safely with a full view of any obstacles or people behind the vehicle.
Various high-tech Honda Sensing features now come standard in all but the base model, including:
Other cutting-edge driver-assist features include a blind spot monitoring system and a cross traffic monitor (both standard onboard all but the base model).
