2018 Honda Odyssey Trim Levels
With its latest upgrades, the 2018 Honda Odyssey continues to be one of the most dependable family cars in Hialeah, Doral, and Miami. But choosing which trim level is best for you can still be quite difficult, especially since it comes with more technologies and safety features than ever before.
Luckily, finding your ideal trim level doesn’t have to be so difficult. With help from Braman Honda Miami and our 2018 Honda Odyssey trim level comparison, you’ll have no problem making an educated and informed car buying decision.
Honda Odyssey LX
The 2018 Honda Odyssey LX is the base trim of the family. It has room for up to seven passengers and a wide array of premium standard features that ensure comfort for everyone on board. Some of these amenities include power-adjustable front seats and an automatic climate control system.
The Odyssey LX also comes with advanced convenience and entertainment features. If you and your family want to jam out to your favorite tunes, you’ll love the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and streaming audio system, as well as a USB Audio Interface. If you want to pull up a few driving details when you’re behind the wheel, just take a quick peek at the 7-inch Driver Information Interface.
In terms of performance, the 2018 Honda Odyssey LX offers more power than ever before. Its 3.5L V6 engine with direct injection gets 280 horsepower. It also comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire and paddle shifter for a smoother and more athletic performance.
Best of all, Intelligent Traction Management is standard for the Odyssey LX. This high-tech performance feature will adjust the powertrain to optimize power and handling in adverse road conditions. That way, you can get the kids to school even when the roads are a bit slippery.
