The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the ultimate minivan with a great road performance, excellent fuel economy, and a long list of features and equipment inside. But the Odyssey also outshines competitors, receiving some top-notch safety ratings across the board. Keeping everyone inside safe and helping drivers behind the wheel drive better on the road is one of the Odyssey’s top priorities.

Crash Test Ratings

From the National Highway Safety Administration, the Odyssey earned a 5-star safety rating for frontal crash tests that simulate a head-on impact with a similarly sized vehicle including the Overall Front Test, as well as the Front Driver Side and Front Passenger Side. It also earned more 5-star ratings for the side tests including: Overall Side, Driver Side, Passenger Side, and Front Seat Rating, Combined Rear Seat Rating, Side Barrier Rating, and Overall Side Pole. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Odyssey a grade of “Good,” or “G,” for roof strength, head restraints and seats, and a “G+” grade for child seat anchors (LATCH).

Superior Frontal Crash Prevention

The IIHS also rated the Odyssey with “Superior” front crash prevention with collision mitigation braking system and forward collision warning, both a part of the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistance technology. The systems use sensors to detect when an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the Odyssey. It can warn the driver to take action, but if the warning goes unheeded, it can automatically engage the brakes in order to mitigate any impact. Honda Sensing is available starting on the EX model, and carrying over to the EX-L, the Touring, and the Elite models. It includes a long list of preventive and driver-assist technology systems that include a road departure mitigation system, lane departure warning, a lane keeping assist system, and adpative cruise control.
