Each year we’re introduced to a great new model of the Honda Odyssey that never disappoints, and the 2018 Honda Odyssey isn’t prepared to break that chain. We think that the Odyssey has nailed finding out what customers want and making it happen. Apparently we’re not the only ones who have noticed, considering the 2018 Honda Odyssey made it onto Wards 10 Best UX list. Stay with us to learn what this means and what makes the Odyssey a winner.
What It Takes to Make the List
One thing that we should clarify before starting is the meaning of UX. Simply put, UX stands for user experience and is a measurement of how enjoyable or simple something is to operate. For cars, this means having features that are resourceful, easy to use, and innovative to assist drivers in getting the most out of their driving experience as a whole. To shed some light on vehicles that are exceptional in this way is the Wards 10 Best UX, which is a list that focuses on these cars to show auto manufacturers what consumers are enjoying so they can improve vehicles in the future. To find winners for this list, Wards weighed key components like driver-friendly interfaces, dependable crash avoidance technology, simple smartphone integration, and easy-to-program navigation systems.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey rightfully won its spot on this list thanks to some spotlighted interior features including Magic Slide second-row seats, CabinTalk, CabinWatch, and HondaVAC. In fact, Senior Editor Tom Murphy said himself that the Odyssey has “enough family friendly features to lure away shoppers who were considering a utility vehicle instead.” This kind of comparison shows exactly why the Odyssey continues to be one of the most popular minivans out there.
