  • 2018 Honda Odyssey

    When you’ve got a minivan full of family and friends, the last thing you want to spend your time worrying about is whether or not they’ll be safe. With the help of the all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey, you can rest assured that your loved ones will be in good hands with the help of some innovative safety features. Keep reading to learn more about how the Odyssey strives to keep you protected.

Passive Safety

Some of the features that don’t regularly get credit for the large part they play in keeping you and your passengers safe are passive safety features. Unlike active safety features and driver-assist technology, these features work more behind the scenes, going into use only when necessary to ensure safety. Just a handful of these stealthy but important features include:

  • Airbags – With SmartVent front side airbags, three-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, and front row knee airbags, drivers and passengers are well prepared for a possible collision.
  • ACE Body Structure – The Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure of the Odyssey assists in reducing damage by distributing the force of the impact away from passengers and other vehicles. 
  • Seat Belt Reminder – Seat belt reminders work to make sure that everyone remembers to buckle up before hitting the road.

Driver-Assist Features

Driver-assist features and technology are systems that work to make it easy for the driver to stay alert of their surroundings and in control of the vehicle at all times. Motor Trend notes, “Everything’s so relaxed inside, there are so many gizmos to play with, and adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist take so much work out of driving the car that you can’t help but enjoy the journey more than the drive.” Some of these important features are as follows:

Honda Odyssey Blind Spot Monitoring System

Cross Traffic Monitor and Blind Spot Information System – The cross traffic monitor checks to see if there are oncoming vehicles approaching from the left and right sides of your vehicle so that you know when it’s safe to reverse from a parking spot. When you’re ready to switch lanes, the blind spot information system will display a clear image of your blind spot so you can know when the coast is clear.

Honda Odyssey Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control – With the ability to set following speeds and read road signs, long road trips just got a lot more comfortable.

Honda Odyssey Lane Keeping Assist
