In the area around the inlet valve, this makes possible a geometry which, in interaction with the inlet ports, allows for targeted mixing up of the gas charge. The common-rail system injects the fuel into the combustion chamber with 250 bar of pressure - the high injection pressure ensures a homogeneous spray pattern and consequently a uniform propagation of the flame front.

This allows the new RS5 Coupe to be a step ahead of its competitors. Switchable engine bearings ensure comfort at idle. The new RS5 Coupe also scores top marks for passive safety. In the interior, the adaptive occupant restraint system for the front seats offers outstanding protection. It adjusts the effect of the front airbags and the seat-belt force limiters to the seating position of the driver and front passenger as well as to the type of frontal collision.
Shannon Griffin 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.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. Exclusive to the Odyssey Touring and Elite trims, LED low- and high-beam headlights provide improved nighttime illumination and visibility compared to contemporary high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. Six LEDs serve as low beams and three LEDs serve as high beams on each side. Besides improving driver confidence and passive safety, the LED headlights use less energy, helping to enhance fuel efficiency by reducing engine loads. In addition, the LED headlights last up to five times longer than HID headlights and up to 10 times longer than halogen headlights - contributing to less frequent replacement and the associated cost savings. An auto on/off function is also included.

Eve Fitzgerald Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. 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.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:32. The 2018 Odyssey receives the most thorough and intensive array of aerodynamic refinements of any Odyssey generation to date. This comprehensive approach boosts aerodynamic efficiency and reduces wind noise. Examples of the aero efforts found on the 2018 Odyssey include extensive under covers, the Active Shutter Grille system, hidden windshield wipers, wind-sculptured side mirrors (power folding on Elite), and many small but pertinent details such as under-body strakes, shark fin-type antenna, and a rear spoiler (black on LX, EX, EX-L and Touring trims, body-color on Elite).
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:31. 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.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:31. 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.
