In the review, representing Honda’s new 2018-2019 new Honda Odyssey 5-generation minivan with photos and video, the price and specifications, specifications and reviews of the owners of the American version of the Honda Odyssey. The public premiere of the new Honda Odyssey took place at the North American International Auto Show 2017 , taking place in Detroit. Buy a new Honda Odyssey in North America will be possible already in early spring of 2017 at a price of 30,000 dollars.
The completely new Honda Odyssey minivan is designed from start to finish by American specialists from Honda R & D in North America. The novelty is intended exclusively for official sales on the territory of North America (gray dealers, however, no one interferes with the delivery of a new generation of Honda Odyssey minivan to Russia). Production of the 5th generation of the model is organized at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (Lincoln, Alabama, United States).
The main competitors of Honda Odyssey in the US market are Dodge Grand Caravan, Kia Sedona, Toyota Sienna and the newest Chrysler Pacifica . To successfully confront with competitors and attract more customers to a new generation of Odyssey, developers have endowed the van with a mass of original equipment providing unprecedented levels of comfort and communication, stylish body design, highly functional interior, a powerful 284-horsepower V6 3.5 i-VTEC gasoline engine Company with the newest 10 automatic transmissions (a hybrid version of the minivan will appear).
Touching the appearance of the new generation of the model, we find the Honda Odyssey 5 attractive, but no more. Something beyond the ordinary, bright and spectacular is not in the design of the body of the novelty. However, a need for a flashy appearance of a family car, most likely not.
However, the details and elements on the body worthy of attention, of course, are present, and they should be noted. This is offered as an option LED headlamp (full LED), original lights in rear light with LED filling, waves flowing along the sides of the body, a high sash line and a roof with the effect of soaring.
Honda Odyssey is a large family car that can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people in three rows. And it is in the salon of the novelty that the bulk of modern and even unique equipment is concentrated.
The Magic Slide system is available for the second row of seats, allowing to remove the central chair, and in its absence move the two remaining seats forward and backward, and the most interesting is to move across the passenger compartment. The manufacturer offers four different configurations of the second series: Easy Access mode, Super mode, Wide mode and Buddy mode.
There is also a digital instrument panel with a 7-inch full-color screen, an advanced multimedia complex with an 8-inch color screen on the front panel (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, USB), an entertainment complex WSVGA Rear Entertainment System with 10, 2-inch color screen for passengers of the second and third rows (PBS Kids, iHeart Radio, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi).
And the CabinWatch and CabinTalk systems, which allow passengers to watch passengers in the rear of the car using a screen on the center console and talk with them using microphones and headphones, the CabinControl service that controls the entertainment system and the climate control of the rear of the passenger compartment with the application installed on the Smartphone – just the same find for the parents of motorists.
Also as an optional equipment you can count on LED headlights, heated and ventilated front seats, electric rearview mirror adjustment, side windows, front seats, the hatch and tailgate, heated mirrors and rim of the steering wheel, parking sensors, light sensors and Rain, Blind Spot Information System, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Electric Parking Brake with Brake Hold (parking brake with electronic control), three-zone climate control, a platform for wireless charging of smartphones.
The new Honda Odyssey claims to be the safest minivan in the US market thanks to the presence of the Honda Sensing: Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control. Add here a robust body Advanced Compatibility Engineering, which produces steel of varying degrees of strength, and a variety of airbags, including protecting the knees of the driver and front passenger.
