2018 Honda Odyssey Lane Keeping Assist

This state-of-the-art van also features a blind spot information system as a standard offering for the EX trims and higher. This system employs radar sensors on each side of the rear bumper that continuously monitor blind spot areas to detect when another vehicle enters the blind spot. The system also issues both visual and audio warnings to let the driver know if another automobile enters the Odyssey’s blind spot. An indicator lights up near the exterior side mirrors to show the presence of another car, and an audio warning sounds if the turn signal is deployed on the side of the van where another vehicle is sensed.

Also found onboard the Odyssey EX and above is a rear cross traffic monitor. This feature works in conjunction with the blind spot information system radar sensors to enhance safety whenever the Odyssey is shifted into reverse. The monitor detects vehicles that are approaching from the side when the Odyssey is being backed up and alerts the driver, also showing the direction from which the other vehicle is approaching.

Standard-Issue Safety Features

Various safety offerings are provided standard onboard each of the 2018 Odyssey models. Included among these are:

2018 Honda Odyssey Multi Angle Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: A standard multi-angle camera system with guidelines delivers an image of any obstacles behind the van when the Odyssey is shifted into reverse. The system can display a top, normal, or wide view of the area behind the Odyssey, and dynamic guidelines overlaid on the image can show the vehicle’s current projected path, which is calculated according to the driver’s steering inputs.

2018 Honda Odyssey ACE Body StructureACE Body Structure: Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure has been improved for the 2018 Odyssey. The second-generation version of the ACE body structure design boosts crash compatibility and protection when the Odyssey is involved in a frontal collision and also helps to more evenly disperse crash energy across the front of the vehicle and to other automobiles involved in a crash. Additionally, ACE body structure reduces the probability of one vehicle overriding or under-riding another in an accident as well as providing added protection and strength in small front overlap crashes.
2017 Honda Odyssey Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) offered standard onboard the Odyssey is an electronic stability control system that functions cooperatively with the Odyssey’s drive-by-wire throttle system and four-channel ABS to bolster control when the van brakes, corners, accelerates, or experiences a sudden maneuver. The VSA delivers brake force independently to any wheels that need it while also managing the throttle, ignition, and fuel systems to assist the Odyssey in maintaining its travel path.

2018 Honda Odyssey Interior

Smart Airbags: Each of the Odyssey models comes equipped with advanced airbags that include three-row side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor and SmartVent front side airbags. The side curtain airbags are made to detect the kind of collision taking place and its severity and then deploys accordingly. The SmartVent front side airbags that come standard onboard the Odyssey are designed to mitigate the risk of airbag-related injury when a smaller passenger, such as a child, is riding in the front seat.
