Inside Line

In addition to top five-star results from the federal government and the IIHS in all crash tests, the Odyssey is an IIHS Top Safety Pick and has a great record for occupant protection. Its great handling also likely helps it avoid accidents.

Honda claims a class-leading six tether locations and five LATCH locations—the latter are the official clips for child seats. Officially, you can fit four child seats of any kind—two in both outboard positions of the second and third rows. But if they're narrow enough, you can mount three across in the second row and two in the third—for a capacity of five child seats. And that's really two more than most other minivans and SUVs.

The new Odyssey includes Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist (stability control) system and anti-lock brakes, plus driver and front passenger side airbags and three-row side-curtain bags. In front, there are active headrests.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
