2018 Honda Odyssey Driving

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is the ultimate minivan. It is well equipped with features and technology, and it achieves excellent fuel economy. And with a deep commitment to safety that is demonstrated in the Odyssey’s crash test ratings and highly rated safety features, it’s something the whole family can feel good about.

Frontal Crash Tests

The Odyssey has earned the top score of 5 stars for frontal crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.* The tests put the Odyssey in a head-on collision with a similarly sized vehicle and examine the results to the exterior and the effects on the crash dummies inside. The Odyssey scored a 5-star rating for the overall frontal crash test as well as the front driver side test and the front passenger side test.

Side Crash Tests

The NHTSA also tested the Odyssey in tests that simulate side impacts, as in an intersection collision, and collisions into fixed objects, such as a tree, pole, or road barrier. The Odyssey again scored the top rating of 5 stars for the overall side test as well as the following tests and ratings*:

  • Driver Side Test
  • Passenger Side Test
  • Front Seat Rating
  • Combined Rear Seat Rating
  • Side Barrier Rating
  • Overall Side Pole Star Rating

Top Safety Pick+

In addition to the NHTSA’s 5-star ratings, the Odyssey also earned the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ title from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety when equipped with available Honda Sensing and LED headlights. The award recognizes the Odyssey for its high ratings of roof strength, headlights, and child seat anchors (LATCH). It also earned a “Superior” rating for frontal crash prevention when equipped with technology such as forward collision warning and collision mitigation braking system—both part of the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technology that is available or comes standard on several of the Odyssey models.
