2018 Honda Odyssey: Honda CR-V’s Worst Nightmare

By  | 

The Honda CR-V has been getting some pretty positive feedback. Its new design, engine, and features makes it one of the top SUV in the market right now but all of that will be nothing when Honda brings out the Honda Odyssey.

Honda has invested millions in making sure the Honda Odyssey is ahead of the trend. The vehicle will be built at the Tallapoosa Georgia plant. That plant upgrade along with the transmission manufacturing plant in Ohio cost Honda about $149million.

Thanks to all that investment, the Honda Odyssey will be able to come with a 10-speed auto transmission. This will make the Odyssey the first ever Honda to come mated to a 10-speed auto transmission.

With the upgrades, the Honda Odyssey could easily overshadow the Honda CR-V when it arrives. The new Honda CR-V will be powered by a 2.4 liter four engine that will be offering about 184hp. There is also a 1.5-liter turbo four engine that will be offering about 190hp.

The top of the range model will come with a top speed of 124mph and will return about 27mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway. It will also need 7.6 seconds to go from a standstill to 60mph.

The current Honda Odyssey, on the other hand, will come powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that will be offering about 248hp. The engine will have a top speed of 120mph and will return about 19mpg in the city and 28mpg on the highway. The vehicle can go from 0-60mph in 7.7seconds.
