The restyling of the front and rear aprons places particular emphasis on the car‘s width, which has the effect of signalling just how sporty both models are to drive and how sure their handling is. A chrome-design trim strip running across the full width of the rear and the positioning of the model and eDrive badges on the outer edges of the boot lid serves to reinforce this impression. The new BMW i3 and new BMW i3s come equipped with all-LED headlights as standard, which employ LED bulb units for dipped beam and high beam as well as the daytime running lights. The new turn signal indicators also feature LED technology and are integrated into the front apron in the form of horizontal strips. This means that LEDs are now used for all lighting functions at the front of the vehicle too, as was already the case with the glass-covered rear light assemblies.

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.

New on the 2018 Honda Odyssey are center door rails hidden under the rear side glass that replace the visible rails located on the body sides behind the rear doors on the second- through 4th-generation Odyssey. The result is a clean, seamless appearance for the rear body side and no visible side door rails or components. A safety latch prevents the left-hand sliding door from opening when the fuel lid is open. Like the front doors and tailgate, the side doors feature full 360-degree seals to reduce wind and road noise, water and debris from entering the vehicle.

The 2018 Odyssey shares the same 118.1-inch wheelbase with the previous-generation Odyssey for superb second- and third-row seating roominess, easy ingress and egress, and superior ride comfort. The overall length increases fractionally to 203.2 inches due to a 0.4-inch longer rear overhang, while the width decreases by 1.1-inches to reduce frontal area, reducing aerodynamic drag. Overall height is nearly identical. The dimensional adjustments do not compromise interior roominess, as the new Odyssey offers fractionally more front and third-row headroom, retains almost identical overall passenger volume, and offers more cargo volume, with two inches more length in the cargo area, than the previous generation.

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."

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.

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.
