  • Next gen Odyssey to feature new powertrains, advanced connectivity, entertainment and safety promising the ultimate in family-friendly versatility and comfort
  • Odyssey teaser sketch reveals sophisticated, low and wide design
  • "Teaser scribbles" showcase vision of youthful designers
  • Press Conference scheduled for Jan. 9, 2017 @ 12:00 p.m. EST

DETROIT – The all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan will make its global debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show on January 9. The 5th-generation 2018 Honda Odyssey has been completely redesigned and will feature new powertrain technology, sophisticated styling and showcase a new suite of innovative features, making it the ultimate in family-friendly design and packaging. The Honda press conference will take place at 12:00 p.m. EST on January 9, 2017.

An official teaser sketch of the all-new Odyssey was released today, along with four "teaser scribbles" from children of the Ohio-based Odyssey Development Team. These "scribbles" represent bold and youthful design, but the company admits adopting these futuristic illustrations "as is" from these doodling designers could present a variety of real world challenges, so more testing and validation will be required.

"We wanted to have a bit of fun by sharing some of the drawings from children of the Odyssey team members, since they were inspirational in shaping the family-friendly direction of the all-new Odyssey," said Chad Harrison, chief engineer at Honda R&D America and the development leader of the new Odyssey.

Through five generations, the Honda Odyssey has consistently met the evolving needs of American families. The most popular minivan with individual American car buyers for six years running, the Odyssey is leading again in 20161. In addition, the Honda Odyssey has been the most popular minivan with under-35-year-old buyers in every year since 20102, and American car buyers have purchased nearly 2.5 million Odyssey minivans since its 1994 debut.
