2018 Honda Odyssey Power & Performance
Getting your family around shouldn’t be too difficult, thanks to the 3.5L V6 engine under the hood. The engine is paired with a versatile 9-speed automatic, which lets the vehicle hit its 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque potential with ease. The vehicle also features Active Noise Cancellation™, which can sense when your engine is letting off a lot of noise and reacts accordingly to prevent your audio entertainment from being interrupted.
Passenger Space & Capacity
|Row||Headroom||Legroom||Cargo Space Behind Row|
|1||40.7 inches||40.9 inches||144.9 cubic feet|
|2||39.5 inches||40.9 inches||88.8 cubic feet|
|3||38.3 inches||38.1 inches||32.8 cubic feet|
The Honda Odyssey opens with a spacious 163.6 cubic feet inside the cabin. The base-level Honda Odyssey can carry seven passengers with the third-row bench and the middle-row captain’s chairs. However, you can upgrade the minivan to feature the 8-passenger capacity that swaps out the captain’s chairs for a middle-row bench. The vehicle even features 32.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row that drivers can maximize to 88.8 cubic feet when the rear seats (60/40 split) are folded, or 144.9 cubic feet when the middle row is taken out.
Entertainment & Technology Features
When you’re choosing your next family-oriented vehicle, it’s crucial that you ensure that the vehicle has enough entertainment features to keep your family happy along the way. The Honda Odyssey is outfitted with a 7-speaker sound system to deliver audio entertainment to all sections of the cabin. Using the 5-inch screen, you can select your media, spanning from the AM/FM radio or the portable media device that you have connected through the auxiliary input.
The Honda Odyssey also comes with Bluetooth® connectivity. This allows you to not only conduct hands-free phone calls, but you can stream audio entertainment from your smartphone, as well. Bluetooth® also incorporates the SMS Text Message Function, which delivers your incoming text messages to the dashboard screen so you can remain connected at all times.
