2016 Honda Odyssey Named a 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK

2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick Honda Odyssey Greenville

Honda’s 2016 Odyssey has been assigned a 5-star rating by the IIHS for excellence in meeting safety standards in all categories. Honda continues to exceed expectations of high performance in crash test ratings, as this is its eighth year of “Good” ratings, the highest rank awarded. With enough LATCH anchors to accommodate five child car seats, the minivan seats a total of eight. With extra interior cargo space plus a 3500-pound towing capacity, the Odyssey might just be the ultimate minivan for family comfort and safety.

Honda Odyssey Receives Highest Ratings in All 5 Safety Categories

The IIHS measures safety in five main categories including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. The Odyssey was assigned the highest level of evaluation for all five categories. Ease of use for the LATCH (child restraint) system was rated Acceptable. Additional safety features on the Odyssey include a rollover sensor, which activates when the vehicle detects an approaching rollover, as well as electronic stability control and antilock brakes. In the event of a rollover, results showed the roof is strong enough to withstand four times the weight of the vehicle before caving under pressure.

Honda Odyssey Scores Best in Side Impact and Frontal Crash Tests

Featuring three rows of side impact airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags, the Odyssey performed at a high level in side impact crash tests. Side impact testing showed a low risk of significant injury to the driver and passengers. In frontal collision tests, measurements taken from crash test dummies suggest the driver is well protected, with very little risk of injury. Options on the 2016 Odyssey include a Forward Collision Warning for automated front crash prevention.

For consumers shopping for a minivan, the Odyssey’s standing as a top safety pick is the most relevant assurance. The 2016 Honda Odyssey fulfills all parents’ safety expectations and provides the latest technology in accident avoidance and passenger protection.
