Safety Ratings (and Safety Features) That You’ll Love!

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, evaluates vehicles on the basis of the protection they provide to passengers during collisions. By conducting tests at a variety of different angles, they’re able to paint a comprehensive picture of a vehicle’s capabilities. During its own round of testing, the 2018 Odyssey offered 5-star protection in nearly every trial, and as a result, it earned a 5-star overall safety rating.* The experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, also had good things to say about this minivan, naming it a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with Honda Sensing and LED headlights and noting its exceptional array of safety equipment. Among the latter, we find features like vehicle stability assist with traction control, LED daytime running lights, and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines—and that’s just on the baseline LX trim! By upgrading to the EX trim or higher, drivers will also receive a blind spot information system, a cross traffic monitor, the Honda Sensing safety suite, and much more!
