The Honda Odyssey: The Minivan, Redefined

The family minivan. Its reputation is anything but glamorous, and purchasing one might get you a few raised eyebrows in certain circles.

To those people we say: You clearly haven't met the Honda Odyssey.

It's not your parents' minivan. It's not a bulky, barebones people mover that marks the place where youthful style gives way to adult obligations.

It's stylish. It's loaded with features. It's-dare we say it? - cool.

It moves seamlessly from school drop-offs to adventurous road trips and everywhere else you need it to go, and it does so without looking or feeling like a minivan. A powerful engine delivers a satisfyingly strong road performance.

The spacious, modern interior is designed with driver and passengers in mind, with an eye toward keeping everyone inside happily entertained and occupied in perfect comfort no matter how long or short the journey. And, as you might expect from a Honda nameplate, there are safety systems galore to allow everyone inside to relax and enjoy the ride.

Words alone might not be enough for you to cast aside your preconceptions about what a minivan can be, so Illinois drivers in and around Kickapoo, Allentown, and Eureka, make the short drive to Bob Lindsay Honda and get up close and personal with Honda's standout minivan. Get behind the wheel of an Odyssey and explore everything it has to offer. We think you'll change your tune pretty quickly.

What Can You Expect from the 2018 Honda Odyssey?

2018 marks a complete redesign for the Honda Odyssey, so it's an exciting time to buy or lease! The most remarkable changes? A revised V6 engine, new 9-speed and 10-speed automatic transmissions, modernized styling, and an all-new cutting-edge infotainment system.

All of the five available trims come standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that provides plenty of power to get you anywhere you need to travel. The baseline LX trim is impressively equipped for a base model, with a multi-angle rearview camera, power front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, push-button start, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and a one-motion 60/40-split third-row Magic Seat that adds versatility to the interior configuration.

The EX trim adds the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features, Magic Slide second-row seats for easy access to the third row, and a blind spot information system. The EX-L includes leather-trimmed seating, an available navigation system, and an available rear entertainment system. The Touring trim makes the entertainment and navigation systems standard and adds CabinWatch and front and rear parking sensors, while the Elite trim has heated and ventilated front seats, a wireless phone charger, and an 11-speaker premium audio system.

A Brief History of the Honda Odyssey

Honda debuted the Odyssey in 1995 in response to that era's demand for minivans. The Odyssey was well received, in large part because of features like its four-wheel disc brakes, dual airbags, dual-zone climate control, and ergonomic elements.

A redesign in 2000 increased the length of the Odyssey and replaced hinged rear doors with dual sliding doors. It also got a more powerful engine that year, a 3.5L V6.

Other changes brought in more and varied storage solutions, beverage holders, a retractable tray table, and a coin holder. This model also offered a navigation system, still an uncommon feature at the time.

In 2005, ACE body structure brought about improved safety, and variable cylinder management was introduced on higher trim levels.

Later years saw cosmetic changes as well as the addition of a more powerful engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a built-in vacuum cleaner in the top-level trim.

Today's Odyssey models retain the spirit with which the Honda minivan first made its appearance, offering unique features and cutting-edge amenities for a vehicle that seems like a whole new breed of minivan.
