Minivans often conjure images of row after row of children being shuffled from one school activity to the next, and since parents are the biggest consumer of these vehicles, they want one with a good track record when it comes to safety. That's where the Honda Odyssey comes in.
A 2013 Top Safety Pick, the Honda Odyssey has received the highest rating in crash tests from IIHS for more than a decade. Boasting an advanced body structure that enhances the protection of driver and passengers, the Honda Odyssey comes equipped with anti-lock brakes, driver and front passenger active head restraints, and dual-stage, multiple-threshold front air bags that can be inflated at different rates depending on the severity of the crash.
Front side air bags with passenger-side occupant position detection uses sensors in the front passenger's seat to detect the passenger's height and seating position, so if a child or small adult were leaning into the air bag deployment path, the sensors would deactivate. The three-row, side curtain air bags also come equipped with rollover sensors.
