February 27th, 2017 by

The upcoming 2018 Honda Odyssey was recently unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and it introduced some awesome updates that drivers from Anderson, Greenville, Simpson, Easley, and Clemson, SC are sure to enjoy! While the 2018 Honda Odyssey isn’t available yet in showrooms like ours here at Piedmont Honda, there is an anticipated release for Spring 2017, so you don’t have to wait long!

This new Odyssey raises the stakes for family-friendly packaging, performance and technology in the minivan segment," said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "In all aspects of its design, the new Odyssey is made to keep every member of the family happy, no matter the seating position, no matter the destination." —from a 09.01.17 Honda Press Release

Some differences you’ll find on the exterior of the new 2018 Honda Odyssey include: Honda’s signature flying-wing front grille, available LED headlights, LED Taillights, and an available hands-free power liftgate. On the inside, things get even better: one huge innovation is the Magic Slide™ seating, which is easily reconfigurable for passenger comfort and optimizing cargo- and passenger-carrying capabilities.

In addition to an updated, upgraded look and feel, the body and chassis design underwent a reboot, too, giving the 2018 Odyssey a very quiet cabin, excellent handling, and improved ride quality. If you’re ready to compare and contrast, we invite you to check out the 2017 Honda Odyssey and then wait for the 2018 Odyssey to roll into our showroom. You can even test drive them both once the 2018 Odyssey is released to see which one you prefer!
