Mollie Slater. Honda. October 19th , 2017.
For the first time, the new 2018 Odyssey has 1500-megapascal (MPa) ultra-high-strength steel door reinforcement beams and ultra-high-strength front door outer stiffener rings made of 1500-MPa hot-stamped steel. Laser welded and significantly stronger than ordinary steel, the ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements are designed to help better protect occupants in a frontal or side impact. Their increased strength allows the components to be made lighter which also helps reduce overall vehicle weight for improved fuel efficiency.
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.
The new fifth-generation Odyssey is a progressive and sporty evolution of the Odyssey well-known exterior form. In front, the 2018 model includes the latest version of Honda trapezoid grille, with boldly restyled chrome bars, stylized headlights, and new wing-shaped LED daytime running lights (DRL) lending a premium appearance on EX and above models. Bright LED headlights and fog lights complete the Touring and Elite trims. The hood gains new character lines that add a more visually enticing and sophisticated look, while the front fascia invokes a sports sedan, with a large lower air inlet.
The Honda Odyssey Drive-by-Wire throttle system replaces a conventional throttle cable with smart electronics that "connect" the accelerator pedal to a throttle valve inside the throttle-body. The result is less under-hood clutter and lower weight, as well as quicker and more accurate throttle actuation. Plus, a tunable "gain" rate - the relationship between throttle pedal application and throttle opening - offers improved drivability and optimized engine response to suit specific driving conditions. Honda Drive-by-Wire throttle system establishes the current driving conditions by monitoring throttle pedal position, throttle valve position, engine speed (rpm) and road speed. This information is used to define the throttle control sensitivity that gives the Odyssey throttle pedal a predictable and responsive feel that meets driver expectations.
