Eleanor Norton BMW, 2017-10-14 15:16:12. The new BMW i3s incorporates a number of design elements all of its own that underscore its particularly dynamic character. Both the front and rear aprons are notable for their model-specific, powerfully shaped contours. At the front, the bumper inlay as well as the U-shaped surround encircling it have a black finish. The front apron‘s side sections are bordered on their lower edge by accent strips in BMW i Blue or Frozen Grey that further emphasise the width of the car. The accent in the closed BMW kidney grille is also painted in high-gloss black on the BMW i3s to give the grille a larger and more prominent appearance. The rear apron of the new BMW i3s is likewise composed of individually styled contours, while the black surround frames an extra-wide, body-coloured inlay. On the new BMW i3s, the roof line accent also sports the same high-gloss black finish as the A-pillars.
Eleanor Norton BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:30. The dynamic handling qualities of the all-new BMW X3 are directly linked to its ideal 50:50 weight distribution, its meticulously honed chassis and xDrive, BMW’s Intelligent all-wheel-drive system, which made its debut in 2003 when the first generation of the BMW X3 originally launched. Not only has the system been offering superior grip on slippery surfaces ever since, it has had a beneficial effect on driving dynamics too. This system is networked with the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) allowing the power split between all four wheels to be constantly varied, providing the handling characteristics for which BMW is renowned. The new Driving Dynamics Control toggle switch now also offers Adaptive Mode when the vehicle is equipped with Dynamic Damper Control in addition to configurations such as, ECO PRO, COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ (M40i model only) modes.

A cooling control spacer positioned in the water jacket surrounding the cylinders helps control warm-up and operating cylinder liner temperatures to reduce friction. Plateau honing of the cylinder lining further reduces friction between the piston skirts and the cylinder walls by creating an ultra-smooth surface. This 2-stage machining process uses two grinding processes instead of the more conventional single-stage honing process. Plateau honing also enhances the long-term wear characteristics of the engine. Designed with "cavity-shaped" crowns, the 2018 Odyssey pistons help maintain stable combustion and contribute to stratified-charge combustion. Ion-plated piston rings help reduce friction for greater operating efficiency. Heavy-duty steel connecting rods are forged in one piece and then "crack separated" to create a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally fitted bearing cap.

Wraparound chrome trim adds a luxurious touch on all trims, as do chrome door handles on EX and above trims, and body-color lower side sills on the Touring and Elite trims. Re-engineering the sliding side door mechanisms removes the previous models visible rails along the rear body sides, giving the new Odyssey a cleaner appearance, while the larger 18-inch and available 19-inch wheels and tires further bolster the 2018 Odyssey athletic stance.

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.

A signature design feature of the new Odyssey, the DRLs utilize Honda characteristic wing shape positioned below and beside the low-beam headlights. Shaped to match the modern, elegant and athletic look of the new Odyssey, the LED DRL array tapers as it moves from the body side toward the inside of the headlight lens. Stylistically, the DRLs strongly and clearly define the front corners of the Odyssey.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. The new Honda Odyssey includes an underbody aero package consisting of a 2-piece undercover behind the front fascia and underneath the engine and transmission, flat underbody surfaces extending between the front and rear wheel areas, air-diverting strakes positioned ahead of all four tires, and an additional undercover behind the left rear tire (the tailpipe occupies the space behind the right rear tire). These undercovers directly improve fuel efficiency, particularly on the highway.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. Unique C-shaped taillights give the Honda Odyssey a more luxurious and modern rear appearance, as does expansive chrome trim joining the taillights across the tailgate. Additional character lines visually divide the tailgate into lower, mid and upper segments, with light playing differently on each surface for more visual appeal.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:34. 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.
