The Fiesta’s sophisticated SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system is supported by floating high-definition touchscreens up to 8-inches, and a spacious and ergonomic interior features an almost 50 per cent reduction in centre console buttons for a more intuitive environment.

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.

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.

Included on the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L N/R, projector-beam-style halogen headlights feature round outboard low beams and round inboard high-beam illumination. The Odyssey LX headlights have an auto-off feature to protect the battery state of charge if the driver leaves the vehicle without switching off the lights, while Odyssey EX and above trims add the convenience and safety of auto on/off high beams (AHB).

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.

Its purpose is as a structural attachment point for the steering column and instrument panel, as well as a structural element that helps the passenger cabin retain its shape in certain collisions. For the first time, the Odyssey body structure also utilizes composite materials to further reduce weight while enhancing rigidity and noise dampening. One example is inside the C-pillars, where composite stiffeners, together with the structural foam mentioned above help improve body rigidity. Another example is the base that supports the Odyssey battery. Created from a single composite casting, it holds the battery securely while adding minimal weight to the overall body structure, saving 2.9 lbs. over the previous Odyssey.

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.
Libby Wade Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:33. The 2018 Honda Odyssey 3.5-liter V6 engine meets the tough EPA Interim Tier 3/Bin 125 and CARB LEV3/ULEV-125 emissions standards, and is certified to this level of emissions performance for 150,000 miles. Numerous advanced technologies are factors in the emissions performance. The unique cylinder head-mounted close-coupled catalytic converters light off quickly after engine start up, and a 32-bit RISC microprocessor within the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) boosts computing power to improve the precision of spark and fuel delivery. The engine features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) that continually adjusts the fuel delivery to yield the best combination of power, low fuel consumption and low emissions. Multiple sensors constantly monitor critical engine operating parameters such as intake air temperature, ambient air pressure, throttle position, intake airflow volume, intake manifold pressure, coolant temperature, exhaust-to-air ratios, as well as the position of the crankshaft and the camshafts.
