Mollie Slater Ford Fiesta, 2017-11-04 19:54:16. The Ford Fiesta Active is the first Fiesta crossover model, combining rugged SUV-inspired styling that includes raised ride-height, roof bars and additional cladding; hatchback practicality; and true Fiesta driving dynamics. Ford earlier this year introduced for the first time a new range of ST-Line models that deliver exterior and interior styling inspired by Ford Performance models alongside powerful Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel engines, for customers who aspire to the sporty image of Ford’s ST models - but do not require the full performance delivered by optimised ST engines and chassis with sports technologies. The Ford Fiesta ST-Line features sporty exterior styling including unique alloy wheel, grille, front and rear bumper and side-skirt designs. The interior features sports seats, alloy pedals and a flat-bottomed steering wheel, while the driving experience is enhanced with sports suspension.

For the first time, the new 2018 Odyssey has 1500-megapascal (MPa) ultra-high-strength steel door reinforcement beams and ultra-high-strength front door outer stiffener rings made of 1500-MPa hot-stamped steel. Laser welded and significantly stronger than ordinary steel, the ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements are designed to help better protect occupants in a frontal or side impact. Their increased strength allows the components to be made lighter which also helps reduce overall vehicle weight for improved fuel efficiency.
Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:27. 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.

LED headlights are available for the first time, joining available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), available LED side mirror turn signals and LED taillights to provide the brightest and most visually distinctive array of Odyssey exterior lighting yet.

Tuned specifically to attenuate wind-, urban- and traffic-noise frequencies, the acoustic windshield uses an outer layer of 2.0 mm safety glass, a 0.7 mm thick middle layer of acoustic polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and a 2.0 mm inner layer for a total thickness of 4.7 mm - an increase over the 4.5mm thickness of the previous-generation Honda Odyssey windshield. This helps the Odyssey place at the top of its class in wind-noise performance.
Paige Dodd Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:27. Compared to conventional halogen headlights, the Odyssey available LED headlights offer some 32.8 feet (10 meters) wider illuminated area on each side - as well as a 26.2 foot (8 meter) longer reach line - when low beams are in use. The width and reach advantages aid drivers in more safely and confidently navigate both straight and winding roads. Odyssey auto-high beam feature further improves safety. All 2018 Odyssey trims feature LED taillights, whose C-shaped design complements the wing-shaped design of the available front LED DRLs and providing a distinctive Odyssey appearance that is easy to spot on the road. The Odyssey EX-L, Touring and Elite trims feature a power tilting and sliding front moonroof with a manual sunshade. To tilt or slide the moonroof, the driver or front passenger needs only to fully press the ceiling-mounted switch once (instead of pressing and holding it for several seconds). The moonroof fully opens or closes automatically. However, if the operator wishes to only partially open or close the moonroof (such as to achieve partial ventilation), a lighter touch yields fully manual control. The moonroof can also tilt to provide ventilation. An auto-reverse feature is built in, helping to mitigate the possibility of a pinched finger or limb. If the moonroof motor ECU detects a threshold level of mechanical resistance, indicating a possible obstruction, the motor will automatically reverse and reopen the moonroof.
Millie Lowe Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. Located under the front floor of the new Honda Odyssey is a variation of the "3-Bone" structure used in the Pilot that improves impact load management, directing energy around the passenger cabin in the event of a frontal collision. The structure creates three different load pathways, or "backbones," that channel collision energy. One channels collision forces from the front of the vehicle directly underneath the passenger cabin; the other two channel collision forces under the vehicle left and right side frames. The result is an improved capability to safely channel energy during a frontal crash.
