LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Honda recently unveiled the 2018 Honda Odyssey, which received a major overhaul, with a sleek new design, an available new 10-speed automatic transmission and a host of new features and technologies. The new Odyssey will arrive in Spring 2017 at Rohrman Honda, a dealership located in Lafayette, Indiana.

The redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey features a sleek new exterior look. Its sophisticated and modern new styling adopts Honda’s signature flying wing front grille flanked by available LED front headlights. The Odyssey’s signature lightning bolt beltline now provides an even more elegant design element with the sliding door tracks hidden in the lower portion of the rear quarter windows. At the rear there are LED taillights and an available new hands-free power tailgate with foot activation.

The new Odyssey also has improved performance. It comes with a 3.5-liter, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management, delivering an impressive 280 horsepower, which is an increase of 32-hp over the previous generation model. The new Odyssey also benefits from the advanced capabilities of its two available new transmissions — a 9-speed automatic and, for upper grades a new, Honda-developed 10-speed automatic, the first of its kind in a minivan, providing more confident and refined performance.

Indiana families can also enjoy the 2018 Odyssey’s new technologies. This includes a new Display Audio system with 8-inch high-resolution (720P) touchscreen interface, CabinWatch camera, CabinTalk, Connected Rear Entertainment System, Cabin Control and Social Playlist. The new Odyssey also offers improved functionality via its new Magic Slide second-row seat, which is easily reconfigurable for optimal passenger comfort, people- and cargo-hauling flexibility and easy access to third-row seating.
