2012 Honda Odyssey Safety

Safety

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.

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.

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.
