Minivans have really come a long way since their inception. As times change, your needs may change. That said, if you never thought you'd see yourself driving a minivan, here are five reasons the 2018 Honda Odyssey will make you reconsider.

Redesign

If you've noticed a Honda on the road lately, then you probably know they have redesigned quite a few vehicles in their lineup. The Odyssey has received some styling enhancements as well. It now has a new grille up front to complement the modern styling. Go for the Elite trim level, and it boasts Intelligent LED headlights that use less energy, LED taillights and stylish 19-inch alloys.

Interior Layout

The layout inside the Odyssey cabin is impressive. Coming standard is a 5-in screen, which can be upgraded to an 8-in with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Parents can keep a close eye on the kids in the back with Honda CabinWatch, which has a camera placed so you can view the backseats via the screen up front without having to constantly turn your head.

Nice Ride Quality

Compared to others, we would say the Odyssey doesn't drive like a typical minivan. Get behind the wheel, and it might surprise you with how well it handles and its precise steering. It delivers that confidence you want on the road when you have small children inside.

Premium Features

The base LX trim level comes with power front seats and a rearview camera. When you get up to the top trim levels, you get premium features like leather, ventilated front seats, a rear entertainment system and even an integrated vacuum cleaner. Use the HondaLink app and you can remote start the Odyssey, and even cool or heat the van up before the kids jump inside.

Functional Space

All Odysseys except the base LX trim level seat eight passengers. If you want your minivan to be functional and versatile, the Odyssey delivers. Getting in and out is pretty easy, thanks to power-sliding doors that can be opened from up to 50 feet away with the key fob. The EX trim level is outfitted nicely with a moonroof and tri-zone climate control to keep everyone comfortable.

Autotrader Says

It can seem like an endless search to find a reliable and safe family vehicle. The Odyssey makes the time well worth it, and it starts just under $30,000. Just think: there are small sedans that go for that type of money. It may be time to check out the redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey.
