Eleanor Norton Audi, 2017-11-04 19:53:50. Drivers can create their own personal driving experience using the standard dynamic handling system. Audi drive select influences the characteristics of both the engine and the steering. What’s more, the system also adapts the characteristic curve for shifting, as well as the exhaust flaps and further optional modules to suit the four modes: auto, comfort, dynamic and individual.
Paige Dodd Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:12. Ford revealed the next generation Ford Fiesta - the world’s most technologically advanced small car - at a special Go Further event in Cologne, Germany. The next generation Fiesta is unveiled with the most sophisticated range of driver assistance technologies and connectivity features ever in a volume small car in Europe, as part of the most comprehensive and versatile line-up of variants in 40 years of Fiesta history.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. Powering the 2018 Honda Odyssey is a 3.5-liter direct injected i-VTEC® 24-valve SOHC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™). The new engine is common with the powerplant in the 2017 Pilot and is mated to one of two new transmissions - a 9-speed automatic (9AT), also introduced in the Pilot, for LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L NR trims, and an all-new minivan and front wheel drive-first 10-speed automatic (10AT) for Touring and Elite models. For the first time ever, all Odyssey models are equipped with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, to give drivers greater control over transmission operation, which is particularly useful in mountainous driving or when towing. Models equipped with the new 10AT also have a new Idle-Stop capability, which further enhances fuel efficiency.
Millie Lowe Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:30. 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.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:30. 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.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. To further improve emissions compliance, the 3.5-liter V6 makes use of an after-catalytic-converter exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system that allows cleaner, cooler EGR gas to be fed back into the intake system. An EGR system, especially one that delivers a cleaner, cooler charge, reduces pumping loss for better fuel efficiency. With its 60-degree V-angle and compact, rigid and lightweight high-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block assembly, the 3.5-liter V6 powerplant is exceptionally smooth during operation. Other factors that help reduce engine noise and vibration are a rigid forged-steel crankshaft, die-cast accessory mounts, and a stiff cast-aluminum oil pan that reduces cylinder block flex.
Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. Like other Honda V6 powerplants, the Honda Odyssey engine 4-valve cylinder heads are a single-overhead-camshaft design, with the cams driven by the crankshaft via an automatically tensioned timing belt. Made of low-pressure die-cast, low-porosity aluminum, each cylinder head incorporates a "tumble port" design that improves combustion efficiency by creating a more homogeneous fuel-air mixture. An integrated exhaust manifold cast into each cylinder head reduces parts count, saves weight, improves flow and optimizes the location of the close-coupled catalyst on each cylinder bank for quick "light off."

Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. 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.
