19 City / 28 Highway

We’ve come a long way since the first minivan, which truly was mini by today’s standards. Once a staple of the seemingly forlorn American road trip, Honda looks to re-up that nostalgic journey by turning family-friendly into family-fun with its all-American, all-new Odyssey.

What's New for 2018

The Honda Odyssey has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year.

Choosing Your Honda Odyssey

Most people will immediately notice (and focus) on the aggressive-for-a-minivan styling of the new Odyssey, but, like many things, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Everything has been revamped for 2018. An all-new body and chassis produce a quieter, more comfortable cabin. Technologies abound not only with regards to safety but also connectivity. An updated V6 engine produces more power while new transmissions offer improved fuel economy.

All Odyssey minivans use a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This is 32 hp and 12 lb-ft of torque more than the 2017 V6 engine. A new nine- or ten-speed automatic transmission replaces the old six-speed auto, depending on trim level. Shift-by-wire electronic shifting and paddle shifters also are standard. The EPA estimates fuel economy to be 19 city mpg, 28 highway, and 22 combined for all trim levels, regardless of transmission.

Other innovations include what Honda calls its Magic Slide second-row seats, which can configure four different ways to allow for greater flexibility and accessibility for passengers and cargo alike. There also are CabinWatch (allows driver to monitor all rows, both day and night, via an 8-inch display), CabinTalk (allows driver to communicate to passengers using rear entertainment headphones or via rear speakers), and CabinControl (allows control of the rear entertainment system, climate, and navigation via a smartphone app), to make hauling the kiddies easier.

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is available in five trim levels:

LX

Starting at $30,930 (includes the $940 destination charge), the LX increases in price by $140. This entry model sits on 18-inch light silver aluminum alloy wheels and features black exterior moldings and accents. These items are finished in chrome or body-color paint on all other models.

The lone seven-passenger model in the Odyssey lineup, amenities include a rearview camera, keyless ignition, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way power front passenger seat, a 60/40-split third row, a five-inch color LCD screen, a seven-speaker sound system with multi-zone audio, USB charging ports in the center console, and 12-volt power outlets in the front and rear cargo areas.

EX

For 2018, the EX ($34,800) appears to have replaced the previous SE model ($34,890). Featuring an eight-passenger seating configuration, the EX adds 18-inch dark silver alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, adaptive cruise control, auto high-beam headlights, heated side mirrors with turn indicator lights, power sliding doors, fog lights, automatic headlights, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, a Magic Slide second row with multi-function second-row center seat, integrated sunshades in the second row, smartphone integration, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and CabinControl.

Additional safety technologies include an automatic braking system, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, and cross traffic alert.

EX-L

The $38,300 EX-L trim (up $860 from 2017) adds leather seats (front and second-row outboard), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an acoustic glass windshield, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power moonroof, memory settings, USB ports in the second row, and a power tailgate.

Navigation ($1,000) and a rear entertainment system ($1,000) are available but are packaged together Previously, consumers had to choose between the two popular features, with the EX-L Navi priced at $39,440 and EX-L RES at $39,040. By bundling, the EX-L Navi/RES sub-trim is created and starts at $40,300. CabinTalk and a 12-volt outlet in the third row are also added.

Touring

Adding to the EX-L Navi/RES model, the 10-speed automatic transmission and stop-start technology appear as part of the Touring trim, which sees the largest price jump ($1,755) to $45,450. Body-colored parking sensors, LED headlights and fog lights, 18-inch machine-finished wheels, integrated sunshades for second and third rows, a hands-free power tailgate, HondaVAC, CabinWatch, Hondalink connectivity, and mobile hotspot capability also become standard.

Elite

The top-of-line Elite is indeed fully loaded and has the price to match. Starting at $47,610 before options (a $1,345 increase), this trim includes 19-inch machine-finished wheels, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, ambient LED lighting, heated and ventilated front seats, an 11-speaker sound system, wireless device charging, and acoustic glass for the windshield as well as front and rear doors.

CarsDirect Tip

Keeping passengers occupied has become a necessity, whether for a multi-state road trip or a traffic-filled drive to school. Another necessity, especially for families, is staying within budget. By checking all the boxes on accessories, the all-new Odyssey can cause a case of sticker shock – nearly $48,000 is a lot for any vehicle, let alone a family minivan.

The EX trim at less than $35,000 is a better option as it includes all the safety features, the Magic Slide second row, and smartphone integration for in-dash navigation. With the money saved, you can purchase a couple of tablets for rear passengers and pre-load entertainment for long drives.
