Eleanor Norton Audi, 2017-11-04 19:53:50. As standard, the RS5 Coupe rides on 19-inch lightweight forged wheels with 265/35 tires. Upon request, 20-inch wheels in various designs are available, among which the new, especially lightweight fully milled wheel. It uses 275/30 tires. Behind the big wheels are powerful RS steel brakes with perforated composite disks. At the front axle, these have a diameter of 375 millimeters (14.8 in), while at the rear, they measure 330 millimeters (13.0 in). The six-piston brake calipers with RS logos are painted in black, or optionally in red. Upon request, Audi can also equip the front axle with high-performance ceramic brakes featuring six-piston brake calipers and perforated disks with a diameter of 400 millimeters (15.7 in).
Paige Dodd Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:12. The next generation Fiesta delivers improved quality through enhanced specification, innovative engineering, and sophisticated design, including Fiesta’s first openable, full length, panoramic glass roof comprising two almost-full width panes of toughened, tinted glass. Optimised exterior finishing delivers a more upscale appearance. Parking sensors are now fitted flush with the body panels; windscreen washer nozzles are hidden beneath the upper bonnet lip; there are no visible screws in the taillights or rear fascia; the shut line between the roof and the rear liftgate is reduced by more than 30 per cent - all examples of the Fiesta team’s obsession with quality that customers will instantly appreciate.

The strength of the "tailgate ring" (the circular metal structure surrounding the tailgate) is vitally important for superior vehicle handling, stability and ride quality. Debuting on the 2016 Honda Pilot and applied to the 2018 Odyssey for the first time, this advanced tailgate ring contributes to the new model gain in torsional rigidity, benefiting ride, handling and NVH. For the first time in the Odyssey, body stiffness is enhanced using structural foam inserts in key locations. These include the left and right C-pillar stiffeners, and within an inside bracket that connects the left and right side center frames under the front floor. The improved body stiffness pays dividends in handling precision, ride quality, NVH and crash safety.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. The Odyssey Electronic Control Unit (ECU) monitors engine functions to determine the best ignition spark timing. Two engine block-mounted acoustic detonation/knock sensors "listen" to the engine, and based on this input, the ECU can retard the ignition timing to prevent potentially damaging detonation. The engine has an ignition coil unit for each cylinder positioned within each spark plug access bore. To help improve fuel efficiency, the Odyssey Touring and Elite are equipped with Idle-Stop capability. When the system is enabled by the driver and certain operating conditions are met, the Idle-Stop system will automatically shut off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver releases the brake pedal after a stop, or if the steering wheel is turned. If the Brake Hold system is in use, the engine quickly restarts after the throttle is depressed.
Eleanor Norton Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. 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.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. The new Odyssey greatly benefits from a much more rigid and tightly sealed body with substantially increased use of structural adhesives and sealers, as well as new front and rear suspension subframes and extensive aerodynamic tailoring to form the basis for a quiet vehicle. Additionally, the 2018 Odyssey uses a refined, multiple-tier insulation package that takes noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) countermeasures to the next level, positioning it at the top of its competitive set.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. In a first for Odyssey, Honda Active Shutter Grille system located below the front bumper reduces aerodynamic drag especially at cruising speeds, directly helping to improve fuel efficiency. Included on all 2018 Odyssey trims, the system uses an electric actuator controlled by a processor that tracks major temperature parameters, including engine coolant and radiator temperatures, intake air temperature, transmission oil temperature and air-conditioning requirements, all of which can vary due to weather, road conditions, vehicle speed, throttle and gear positions, and towing activity. The system either opens or closes the four shutters simultaneously to control the amount of air flowing through the engine radiator and the air conditioner condenser. The system is designed to keep the shutters closed as much as possible - even in city driving.
Shannon Griffin Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. 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.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. Based on Honda global light truck platform, the 2018 Odyssey body structure has 44-percent greater torsional rigidity than the previous model. High-strength steel comprises 58 percent of the body structure, contributing to both improved stiffness and reduced mass for the unit-body. Stiffening the body with ultra-high-strength steel, hot-stamped steel and adhesives in critical areas likewise directly contribute to reduced noise and vibration, and improved ride and handling. The structural improvements also help reduce mass, directly contributing to increased fuel efficiency.
