The 2018 Honda Odyssey design is bound to blow you away. This model is at the top of the minivan segment thanks to its bold styling, fuel-sipping powertrain, and innovative technologies. If you’re looking for a family hauler that will make life a little easier, check out the latest Honda Odyssey to hit the market.

According to Honda, the all-new Odyssey has seating for up to eight thanks to roomy three-row seating. The cabin has been reinvented to make driving more enjoyable, including features like CabinWatch and CabinTalk so you can keep an eye on passengers in the rear. Honda CabinControl lets control everything from temperature to music volume in the rear, while an 8-inch display touchscreen provides easy access to your command center.

“For families sticking it out with minivans, the 2018 Odyssey promises more convenience, more versatility, and—most of all—more technology,” reads the Car and Driver review.

One of the best new design features is the Magic Slide second-row seat. You can easily get into the rear thanks to the sliding capabilities of the second row, a simple yet important design change.

New Honda Odyssey Changes Coming for 2017

The Honda Odyssey is one of the most beloved minivans on the market, and people on the hunt for a new minivan are going to be treated to the newest model within the next couple of months. Although Honda Odyssey changes have already been announced, there are still some questions about what exactly it is going to look like.

One thing that you can likely expect is an upgrade to the technology features in the van. As more and more companies sign on with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, expect that upgrade to hit the 2017 Odyssey as well.

It’s also possible that the new vehicle is going to feature more Honda Sensing technology to make the vehicle safer. While the previous model featured the Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, this year’s model may feature new technology like the Collision Mitigation Braking System.

The exterior of the car is going to be a bit different than last year’s model, and we expect some design changes and possible changes to the lighting.

As the van will be released in the next couple of months, the speculation will be coming to an end. It’s an exciting time for Honda, so be on the lookout for the changes that they make to the 2017 Odyssey.

Four Honda Models named IIHS Top Safety Pick+

The CR-V is one of Honda’s Top Safety Pick+

There are plenty of ways to measure how safe a car is. The sheer amount of safety features in some cars is staggering, while others seem to be lacking. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducts safety tests on top models every year. Year after year, Honda performs particularly well, proving safety is a top priority on the road.

This year, four Honda vehicles made the Top Safety Pick+ list, the highest safety rating given by the IIHS. Testing areas include small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats.

In the mid-size car segment, both the two-door and four-door Honda Accord held strong, earning top marks in every category, including front crash prevention. Available with the Honda Sensing Package and Collision Mitigation Braking System, the Accord is a top model in its segment for another year.

In the small car category, the Honda Civic pulled the same scores as its older sibling. As for family vehicles, the Honda CR-V crossover earned the top rating as well.

Although it wasn’t a Top Safety Pick+, we can’t forget the Honda Odyssey minivan, which fell just short of the top score. Coming in with a Top Safety Pick rating, the Odyssey earned top scores in all but front crash prevention.
