Honda Odyssey Safety FeaturesSafety is of the utmost concern for many parents when choosing a vehicle. A comprehensive list of safety features, as well as an impressive resume of safety awards have helped to distinguish the 2014 Honda Odyssey as one of the best choices available. Diving deeper into exactly what goes into an Odyssey and what it takes to earn both a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety only further highlights while families trust Honda.

Safety From the Wheels on Up

At the very heart of the Honda Odyssey ‘s safety features is Honda’s next-generation Advance Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. The ACE was designed to best redistribute front crash energy, a problem that still plagues many other models. A new small front overlap test by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that simulates hitting smaller objects such as a tree or pole has further proved that many vehicles still aren’t equipped to handle this type of situation. The Honda Odyssey earned a top score of “Good” in the small front overlap test, showcasing its ability to keep the cabin intact and protect passengers.

Your Odyssey, Your Co-Pilot

Rain and shine, the road is unpredictable. Your car’s response doesn’t have to be, though. Onboard technology like Vehicle Stability Assist and Electronic Brake Distribution help you to stay on your intended path, even when conditions dictate otherwise. Vehicle developers, especially those that have driven with kids in the back seat, know that your attention may not always be on the road 100% of the time. An available Forward Collision Warning system monitors what’s ahead and warns you audibly in case something comes just a little too close for comfort.

There’s Much More to Love about the 2014 Honda Odyssey

While the Odyssey may have been designed first and foremost with safety in mind, that doesn’t mean that Honda has sacrificed other necessary minivan qualities such as a comfort.
