At the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, Honda introduced a fifth-generation Odyssey minivan in the US market, which is fundamentally different from the US market. This novelty has received modern multimedia complexes, negotiation systems as well as cameras that monitor passengers in the back row.
In the new model, the side sliding door guide is delivered to the subwindow line, reducing the risk of contamination. The minivan tailgate can now be opened from below the bumper.
The new Honda Odyssey 2017-2018 is based on the same chassis. It formerly based its Pilot 3 crossover and Ridgeline 2 pickup on its base. At the same time, minivans are offered exclusively on front-wheel drive. Therefore, the longitudinal lever is used in the car instead of the rear multi-link suspension.
There is a 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine with direct injection into the move of the new 2018-2019 Honda Odyssey. Engine rebound is 284 horsepower and works with 9- or 10-speed automatic transmissions.
The interior of the car got the “organizer” of the magic slide second row seats. This feature allows you to move three separate chairs in portrait and landscape directions. The second row seats can be removed from the cabin but can not be folded on the floor.
The minivan has a rear passenger surveillance system called CabinWatch and is intended primarily for the safe transport of children. Therefore, parents can observe the child’s behavior on the 8.0-inch display. It displays a picture of the camera installed on the ceiling above the second row.
In turn, the CabinTalk system is used to negotiate with the rear passengers. It allows you to improve the driver’s voice by using the speakers of the audio system installed in the second and third columns, or reproducing it through the multimedia headset designed for the rear passengers.
In addition, the new Honda Odyssey 2017-2018 has an entertainment system with a 10.2-inch screen on the ceiling, allowing passengers to watch movies on the back or to follow the path.
CabinControl, a special application for smartphones, can be used to control the function of this complex, which also provides access to climate control and explorer. The multimedia system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and also has a Wi-Fi access point.
All new items except the bass have automatic braking system, frontal crash protection system, control system for “blind” area, and keeping the lane in the car. For a fee, you can equip your car with a built-in vacuum cleaner and automatic high-beam LED headlight.
