About the Chicago Auto Show
For these two vehicles to be unveiled at the historic Chicago Auto Show is a great honor. The Chicago Auto Show began in 1901 and is the largest auto show in North America, having been held more times than any other auto show on the continent.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey
Building upon the success of the 2017 Honda Odyssey, the 2018 Honda Odyssey adds even more power, earning up to 280 hp. It is in a front-wheel drive configuration and is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission with an available 10-speed transmission as an option based on preference.
Features and Equipment
Features inside the Odyssey are geared toward making life with a minivan easier for the whole family. You’ll find a built-in vacuum, able to clean up all kinds of messes quickly and easily. Other features include tri-zone climate control, Pandora Internet Radio, wireless-device charging, in-car WiFi hot spot, infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, and much more.
Safety is the Odyssey’s top priority from the engineering to the air bags to the driving aids that help drivers drive better and safer on the road. The new 2018 Odyssey sees new available front-knee airbags to add to the suite of airbags carried over from the 2017 model. Driving aid technology systems include:
- Collision Mitigation System
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Blind Spot Monitor
This four-wheel, single-seat vehicle is powered by a 999-cubic-centimeter motorcycle engine that gets plenty of power at 212 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque. Light as a bike, it was designed to cruise down public roads and is sure to turn heads with an open cockpit and a floating seat. It’s Honda’s contribution to power, design, engineering, and innovation on full display.
