The 2018 Honda Odyssey is a minivan designed for the modern family inside and out. In addition to sleek styling, a comfortable interior, and advanced technologies, the Honda Odyssey also offers a plethora of innovative safety features. From preventing accidents to keeping drivers aware, the Honda Odyssey minivan has a safety feature to help.
The Honda Odyssey features all of the federally required safety features and much more. On top of the general requirements, which includes air bags, the Odyssey minivan packs in a plethora of active and passive safety technologies designed for the modern road.
Christened Honda Sensing®, the safety suite boasts a number of active safety technologies. A handful of the driver-assistance technologies includes:
Adaptive Cruise Control, maintaining a set distance from other vehicles so drivers don’t need to adjust their speed.
The Road Departure Mitigation System, using a small camera to keep track of road markers. If the Odyssey begins to leave the road, the system alerts the driver and adjusts the brakes and steering to keep the vehicle on the road.
The Collision Mitigation Braking System™, helping to bring the vehicle to a stop when the sensors detect that a collision is imminent.
The Lane Keeping Assist System, alerting drivers and subtly adjusting the steering if the Odyssey begins to leave its lane without a turn signal.
In addition to active safety technologies, the 2018 Honda Odyssey features passive safety tech features including a multi-angle rearview camera and a Blind Spot Information System.
While the latest Honda Odyssey has yet to be rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, past results bode well. The 2017 model earned top marks from both crash testing agencies. Now, with even more safety technologies in tow, the 2018 model looks to improve.
