Explore the Incredible Offerings of the 2018 Honda Odyssey Interior
To accommodate both crew and cargo, the Honda Odyssey offers up generous interior space so everyone—and everything—has plenty of room.
The Odyssey provides up to an incredible 163.6 cubic feet of passenger volume
for passengers’ ultimate comfort. The Odyssey LX—the base model of the 2018 lineup—has standard seating for seven occupants, while the other Odyssey models provide seats for eight passengers.
In the cargo area, the Odyssey offers up to 158 cubic feet of cargo volume
when the rear seats are lowered, providing plenty of room for … well, just about anything you need to fit in! This spacious van is ideal for use when you’re moving to a new city; you could even fit a small sofa in the back! If you’re heading out for an adventure, bicycles, camping equipment, and more fits in with ease.
The Odyssey is decked out to make every trip a better one in just about every way possible!
To keep kids and other passengers occupied on long trips, various prime amenities can be found onboard the Odyssey. For the very first time, the Odyssey includes available mobile hot-spot capability
for 2018, letting passengers connect their devices and access the Internet right inside the vehicle. An available advanced rear entertainment system
with compatibility for Blu-ray, DVD, and CD lets kids and others sitting in back enjoy their favorite shows and other entertainment, and built-in streaming apps are included, as well.
In terms of audio entertainment
, the Odyssey is geared up for that, too, providing features like Bluetooth streaming audio, a Display Audio touchscreen, multi-zone audio, SiriusXM radio, HD radio, and more.
The entertainment options were a big hit for the test passengers in Motor Trend’s first drive review. The reviewer had this to say:
“The infotainment system
itself is a big step forward for Honda. The software is all-new and Android-based, and it’s been designed to resemble the home screen on your smartphone. All the major functions have been broken out into apps, each appearing as a tile you can drag around to customize the screen. There are also three favorite slots at the top of the screen that are always present, allowing you to create shortcuts to specific functions such as satellite radio or navigation.”
Other premium interior amenities include the handy available HondaVAC built-in vacuum cleaner
, which makes cleanup a breeze after long trips. This in-car vacuum system has a long reach and a removable waste bin for thorough cleaning ability and ease of use.
New for the 2018 model year are the available CabinTalk and CabinWatch systems, which are designed to make things much easier for parents out on the road. CabinTalk
is an in-vehicle PA system that allows the driver to address those riding in back without turning around or shouting. The system evens mutes the entertainment system and delivers the driver’s voice through the headphones if backseat passengers are watching a movie with headsets on.
lets drivers keep an eye on those riding in back while staying safely focused on the road—a definite advantage for harried moms and dads with rowdy kids riding onboard. The CabinWatch system uses a camera to display rear-seat images so the driver can easily keep tabs on what’s going on in the backseat. The system even has a night vision feature to display the vehicle’s rear seat areas at night.
