Unique C-shaped taillights give the Honda Odyssey a more luxurious and modern rear appearance, as does expansive chrome trim joining the taillights across the tailgate. Additional character lines visually divide the tailgate into lower, mid and upper segments, with light playing differently on each surface for more visual appeal.
Along with acoustic spray foam applied in 14 critical locations, all Odyssey trims feature triple door seals and Active Noise Control technology to help prevent unwanted noise from reaching the passengers. While all trims benefit from thicker front and rear door glass, Elite receives acoustic front/rear door glass and adds an additional carpet barrier layer, acoustic fabric fender liners, additional slide door insulation, and rear wheelhouse insulators.
Odyssey EX and above trims include power sliding side doors that can be activated by a switch (to operate left, right or both doors) on the instrument panel, by a switch from the second-row seating area, by pulling on either the interior or exterior door handle, or by buttons (left or right) on the remote key fob. The system features improved operating logic. In the previous Odyssey generation, if the driver and a passenger outside the vehicle were to each activate a power side door at approximately the same time, the door could start to open with the first person action, and then stop as soon as the second person took action. To eliminate this on the 2018 Odyssey, new door logic enables the door to operate as intended if two identical activations (such as the driver and a passenger both wishing to open a door) are entered within a half second of each other. For instance, if a parent pulls up to the curb at school and presses the power side door open button at approximately the same time as does a child waiting curbside, the door will open as desired. If longer than a half second passes between activations, door operation will stop, and a warning beep will sound.
Despite sharing the same wheelbase and a similar height and length with the previous generation, from the side Honda new 2018 Odyssey looks longer, lower and more athletic. Front-end features - in particular, the lighting - wrap around to the body sides more emphatically. The model characteristic Z-shaped "lightning bolt" side character lines are more strongly developed, new character lines on the doors add light contrast and visual intrigue, and a new partial black-out treatment for the D-pillar lends the appearance of the Odyssey tapered roof "floating" over the cabin greenhouse.
