Minivans may get a bad rap, but at Bryan Honda, we know that there is no better vehicle out there for epic road trips, easy tailgating, and overall entertaining rides than the 2018 Honda Odyssey. It helps that the new Odyssey just so happens to be a pretty darn stylish and modern-looking van, appearing more like a sleek SUV than the bulbous minivans of yore.
The versatile features of the 2018 Honda Odyssey range from impeccable safety systems to charming good-looks to hidden convenience gizmos; here are just a few of our absolute favorites.
So Long, Shouting!
Thanks to Honda Cabin Talk™, you can override any RES connected headphones to be heard by all passengers, as well as have your voice projected through the rear speakers on the Elite Odyssey model. For peace of mind on short trips or long hauls, Cabin Talk™ will feel like a miracle.
Magic is Real
The super-convenient Magic Slide Seat™ 2nd-row seating will change your life. We understand how over dramatic that sounds, but we’re not kidding. No more heavy lifting of awkwardly huge seats. No more sticky levers that don’t really work. The Magic Slide Seat™ option lets you completely reconfigure your rear cabin with just a push for easy access and better seating option.
eVACuate the Mess
If you’re standing, take a seat now: the 2018 Honda Odyssey comes with a built-in vacuum. Keeping your car clean has never been easier thanks to this handy device with its long-reaching suction tube.
With all the incredible features of the 2018 Honda Odyssey, what are you waiting for? It’s about time you got your family into the perfect vehicle for all. Come to Bryan Honda today for a test drive.
If you’re a parent, you know how tough it is to “keep the peace.” You’re not alone; parents all over the world struggle with preventing their kids from arguing, whether they won’t share their toys or they just like to annoy each other for no reason. That’s why the new 2018 Honda Odyssey was designed to help busy parents pay attention to what their active kids are up to. This is showcased in Honda’s new “Keep the Peace” campaign, a series of advertisements illustrating how convenient the Odyssey is for families everywhere.
The minute-long ad that kicks off the campaign opens with two giant monsters attacking a city. One of them picks up a bus, which the other monster wants, and the two begin to fight over it. While the two monsters are fighting, two soldiers make a plan to split the earth, separating them before they can cause any more damage. Right at that moment, the scene cuts to reveal that the two monsters are actually just a brother and sister fighting over a toy bus, and the whole “splitting the earth” thing? Actually just the Odyssey’s “Magic Slide” seating at work, allowing Mom to easily separate the kids and give the sister a new toy airplane to distract her.
“When kids are happy, parents are happy,” says Susie Rossick, Honda Marketing assistant vice president, who highlighted the core of the “Keep the Peace” campaign in a statement to The Drum.
Nothing says family-friendly like a minivan. From its spacious interior with flexible seating to the host of convenience features it offers, the Honda Odyssey is the picture-perfect representative of the minivan segment, more than earning its place as a solid member of Honda’s lineup. Now, for 2016, the Honda Odyssey updates have served to only make the minivan more convenient and accommodating for parents everywhere.
One feature that stands out – and has reviewers gushing – is the HondaVAC. While this built-in vacuum cleaner was offered on previous model years of the Honda Odyssey, 2016 marks the first year the feature will be standard on all models, whereas earlier incarnations of the van saw the HondaVAC appear only on upper-range trims. Outlets for your electronic devices and even a standard rear-seat entertainment system also come with the Odyssey, making sure you can keep the kids busy on long trips.
If you upgrade to some of the upper-level models, you can also get access to conveniences like an integrated touchscreen navigation system and a power liftgate, but Honda’s inclusion of these standard features on a more affordable trim showcases the brand’s determination to make the Honda Odyssey updates more accessible to families everywhere. How’s that for customer satisfaction?
