Inside Line

The 2012 Honda Odyssey has an impressive bragging right for safety-minded family shoppers: it's the only minivan model to have earned top five-star ratings in every crash-test category of the federal government's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), as well as top 'good' ratings in every category of Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing.

In addition to the stability control, anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger front side airbags, and full-length side curtains that we've come to expect in this class of vehicle, Honda has also distinguished itself with the Odyssey in offering a class-leading six child-seat tether locations and five LATCH locations (the official clips)--enabling you to fit up to four child seats of any kind, or five in some cases.

The Odyssey also remains one of the best-handling minivans in our opinion, which might allow you to avoid that accident in the first place.

Conclusion

In addition to being the safest minivans as indicated by crash-test ratings, the 2012 Honda Odyssey is one of the safest vehicles, at any price.

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.
