All Odyssey trims through Touring have 5.0 mm tempered front door glass while Elite adds 4.8 mm acoustic laminated front door glass and 4.3 mm acoustic laminated rear door glass. All Odyssey trims utilize 3.5 mm rear quarter window glass and 3.5 mm tailgate glass. In addition, the available power moonroof uses 3.5mm dark gray privacy glass. The Odyssey Elite includes rain-sensing wipers that automatically activate if water is detected on the windshield. Designed to cover the maximum possible windshield area, the left (driver) and right (front passenger) windshield wipers are 25.6 inches and 22.6 inches long, respectively. They also feature breakaway wiper pivots to mitigate the potential for injury in the event of a pedestrian collision. The rear wiper is 15.7 inches long.
Wiper-linked auto on/off headlights are included on the Odyssey EX and above trims. When the headlight function is set to the AUTO mode, the headlights turn on after the wipers have completed five wipe cycles; they then automatically turn off 2 ½ minutes after the last wipe. Included on the EX and above trims, Smart Entry simplifies approaching, entering and operating the Odyssey - especially when the driver has his or her hands full. To gain entry to vehicle, the driver simply pulls one of the two front door handles while the remote is in his or her possession. The 2018 Odyssey LX retains the previous remote entry system.
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.
The Odyssey V6 engine combines Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC), which changes the lift profile, timing and lift duration of the intake valves. A switching mechanism allows each cylinder to operate with low-rpm valve lift and duration or high-rpm lift and duration. While operating in 3-cylinder mode, the rear cylinder bank rocker arms deactivate, closing all intake and exhaust valves to minimize pumping losses. The "intelligent" portion of the system is its ability to vary valve operation based on the driving situation and engine rpm. At low rpm, the i-VTEC intake valve timing and lift are optimized (low lift, short duration) for increased torque, which allows a wide range of 3-cylinder operation. As engine rpm builds past 5,350 rpm, the i-VTEC system transitions to a high-lift, long-duration intake cam profile for superior high-rpm engine power.
