2018 Honda Odyssey Earns Top Safety Scores from IIHS and NHTSA

The all-new and totally redesigned Odyssey is already renowned for its innovative infotainment and connectivity features (like CabinWatch™ and CabinTalk™). But now that the 2018 Honda Odyssey has recently earned top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (TOP SAFETY PICK+)*and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (5-Star Safety Rating)*, safety tops the list of its most impressive attributes.

“Odyssey was designed to keep everyone in the family happy, and helping to keep everyone safer is a crucial part of that mission, …Honda’s goal of reaching a collision-free society includes safety improvements for each new generation of Odyssey without having to sacrifice minivan-first technologies like available Magic Slide Seat™, which consumers have come to love.” –  Ray Mikiciuk, assistant vice president of Honda Automobile Sales.

The Odyssey’s IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating was achieved by earning a “GOOD” rating on key safety test indicators such as the small overlap front test, roof strength, and side protection, in addition to a “Superior” front crash prevention rating was given for vehicles equipped with optional Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.  The NHTSA granted the Odyssey a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). It scored 5 out of 5 in the frontal crash tests for driver and passenger and for side crash tests for both front and rear seats and pole.

*The 2018 Odyssey with available Honda Sensing® and LED headlights has been awarded the coveted 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) in recognition of its superior crash safety performance.  Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s New Car Assessment Program (www.safecar.gov). Model tested with standard side airbags (SAB).
