Crash Test Ratings of the 2018 Honda Odyssey
It’s not hard to see that when it comes to vehicle safety, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is in a league of its own! The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have both conducted a full round of tests on this year’s Odyssey, and both associations have praised the protection offered by this one-of-a-kind minivan. In fact, the Odyssey has earned both organizations’ highest honors: a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS,* and a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA!** Below, we break down the Odyssey’s achievements in greater detail and show the technology features that have made these achievements possible.
Top-Tier Safety Features in the Odyssey
In the IIHS’s round of crash tests, the Odyssey earned a score of “Good” in nearly every measure of crashworthiness, and when equipped with optional safety equipment, the Odyssey received a “Superior” rating for its ability to avoid and mitigate collisions. The folks at the NHTSA reached similar conclusions: The Odyssey’s 5-star overall safety rating incorporates the results from 11 different crash tests, performed to measure protection from every angle!
Every 2018 Honda Odyssey comes standard with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, LED daytime running lights, and much more. No less impressively, next-generation technology features like a blind spot information system, a cross traffic monitor, and the Honda Sensing safety suite are all standard from the Odyssey’s EX trim up! By making these features available in the Odyssey’s lower trims, Honda’s engineers ensure that drivers who choose the Odyssey won’t have to break to bank to experience top-notch vehicle safety.
