Intelligent Traction Management

What’s the Benefit?

Intelligent Traction Management helps enable Odyssey drivers to maintain traction, stability and driving confidence in challenging conditions—with the ease of just pushing a button.

The Feature:

The system was engineered at the Honda R&D facility in Ohio.

  • It works with the Drive-by-Wire throttle, the VSA® system and the transmission shift map to provide the optimum power for the available surface friction.
  • Drivers can select between Normal and Snow modes.
  • To change modes, drivers press the Intelligent Traction Management button labeled SNOW next to the shift buttons.
  • The selected mode will remain engaged until a new one is selected, or the ignition is shut off.
  • The system will default to Normal mode upon restart.
