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.
Once the engine is fully warmed up, for maximum power and fuel efficiency fuel is injected during the intake stroke. This helps create a more homogeneous fuel/air mix in the cylinder that is aided by the high-tumble intake port design. This improves volumetric efficiency, and the cooling effect of the incoming fuel improves anti-knock performance. Every 2018 Odyssey is equipped with an ECON button that helps improve fuel efficiency by modifying throttle mapping and HVAC operation. When the system is operating, a green ECO indicator appears on the instrument panel and the Drive-by-Wire throttle system provides a more gradual response. To save additional energy, the climate control system characteristics are altered based on the conditions. A green coaching light in the instrument display gives the driver feedback to help improve their real-world fuel economy and instant or average fuel economy can be displayed.
Compared to conventional halogen headlights, the Odyssey available LED headlights offer some 32.8 feet (10 meters) wider illuminated area on each side - as well as a 26.2 foot (8 meter) longer reach line - when low beams are in use. The width and reach advantages aid drivers in more safely and confidently navigate both straight and winding roads. Odyssey auto-high beam feature further improves safety. All 2018 Odyssey trims feature LED taillights, whose C-shaped design complements the wing-shaped design of the available front LED DRLs and providing a distinctive Odyssey appearance that is easy to spot on the road. The Odyssey EX-L, Touring and Elite trims feature a power tilting and sliding front moonroof with a manual sunshade. To tilt or slide the moonroof, the driver or front passenger needs only to fully press the ceiling-mounted switch once (instead of pressing and holding it for several seconds). The moonroof fully opens or closes automatically. However, if the operator wishes to only partially open or close the moonroof (such as to achieve partial ventilation), a lighter touch yields fully manual control. The moonroof can also tilt to provide ventilation. An auto-reverse feature is built in, helping to mitigate the possibility of a pinched finger or limb. If the moonroof motor ECU detects a threshold level of mechanical resistance, indicating a possible obstruction, the motor will automatically reverse and reopen the moonroof.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey 3.5-liter V6 engine meets the tough EPA Interim Tier 3/Bin 125 and CARB LEV3/ULEV-125 emissions standards, and is certified to this level of emissions performance for 150,000 miles. Numerous advanced technologies are factors in the emissions performance. The unique cylinder head-mounted close-coupled catalytic converters light off quickly after engine start up, and a 32-bit RISC microprocessor within the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) boosts computing power to improve the precision of spark and fuel delivery. The engine features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) that continually adjusts the fuel delivery to yield the best combination of power, low fuel consumption and low emissions. Multiple sensors constantly monitor critical engine operating parameters such as intake air temperature, ambient air pressure, throttle position, intake airflow volume, intake manifold pressure, coolant temperature, exhaust-to-air ratios, as well as the position of the crankshaft and the camshafts.
