Honda will unveil the updated Honda Odyssey 2018 next month.

The Honda Odyssey is now 2 years old and it is such a good time for the Japanese carmaker to make a new look for their minivan. According to the latest car news, the company will be launching the upgraded Honda Odyssey 2018 in their domestic market with a great refresh in both exterior and interior.

In the exterior, the Odyssey 2018 is adorned with clearer corner edges at the front and the rear. In detail, the front gets a new bumper which is now accompanied with larger faux air intakes playing the role of the car’s LED foglight housings. The new trim pieces make the front bumper’s corner be squared-off, bringing it a more sporty look.

Additionally, the front apron achieves a more angled design with an extended lip from the improved center intake. The chrome grille has also been replaced with slender chrome strips surrounding the aforementioned piece, giving it a 'polished metal' look. Headlights are also refreshed with a new LED light signature. Noticeably, the Honda Odyssey 2018 is redesigned with all-new alloy wheels.

Meanwhile, the rear seems to be made with fewer changes than the front. It is just equipped with a reshaped bumper.

Coming to the Honda Odyssey 2018 interior, the cabin gets no change in design but there are some differences lying in its trimmings. Another highlight of the 2018 version is a new model for the wood-effect trim on the dash with a darker shade. The more advanced models keep the airplane-style Ottoman seats which are able to fold, rotate and slide.

All Japanese Odyssey versions now meet standard with the Honda Sensing safety features including Lane Keep Assist System, Low-Speed Follow, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning.

Standing out from those features is a brake-throttle override which can stop engine power in case of both brake pedal and gas are operated. Stability control, traction as well as airbags all reach the standard.
