Display Audio System - A new 8-inch high-resolution Display Audio touchscreen interface is available on EX trims and above.
CabinWatch - The infotainment screen displays a camera feed of the rear passengers on the center stack with nightvision and pinch-to-zoom, offering a better view than a conversation mirror alone, especially for rear-facing infants.
CabinTalk - A microphone relays the driver's voice to other occupants over the speakers or into rear entertainment headphones.
CabinControl - The CabinControl app offers smartphone control of key vehicle systems, audio and rear entertainment features.
Social Play List - Social Playlist operates like a virtual jukebox, allowing up to eight family members to upload their music choices to the audio system via their smartphones.
Rear Entertainment - The rear entertainment system (which Honda dubs their 'Connected Rear Entertainment System') is now a single 10.2 inch overhead screen that allows devices to be plugged in or offers streaming video through an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot, or by connecting to public Wi-Fi or a user’s cellphone data, and also includes a 'How Much Farther?' app that tracks trip progress on the screen.
Instrument Cluster - The Odyssey gains a new 7-inch full color TFT instrument cluster display.
Magic Slide Seats - Honda has added a new seating function called their 'Magic Slide' 2nd row seat - when the middle seat is removed, the two remaining captains chairs can be moved side-to-side using a lever mounted on each seat into a variety of positions for better space utilization.
Future Hybrid - Honda also announced plans for a dedicated hybrid vehicle to be built at one of their US factories and launch next year - it will also use the two motor hybrid system from the current Accord Hybrid. This hybrid powertrain would migrate into their 'light-truck lineup', meaning the Ridgeline, Pilot, or Odyssey will also see hybridization in the future.
