Key to the Odyssey's popularity has been its reputation for safety
Motor Trend

For minivan shoppers, safety typically enjoys a higher priority in the shopping process. The 2010 Honda Odyssey doesn't miss a single mark here; whether in terms of top features or great crash-test results, the Odyssey has it.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Odyssey top scores for crash safety, granting it five out of five stars in front impact and side impact protection, and four stars for rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards top "good" ratings to the Odyssey in each of its categories. confirms the abundance of safety equipment on the 2010 Odyssey: "Side-impact and three-row side curtain airbags, all-disc antilock brakes, and traction control are standard, as is an electronic stability system." Additionally, Motor Trend notices the "2009 model adds active front seat head restraints and daytime running lights as standard equipment."

For 2010, it appears that Honda has discontinued the formerly offered PAX run-flat tires—possibly because of issues with road noise.

To help avoid low-speed accidents in parking lots and driveways, the 2010 Honda Odyssey Touring model includes a front- and rear-obstacle-detection system. That might be necessary, as visibility isn't so great. ConsumerGuide says "rear visibility is hindered by large headrests and thick roof pillars," though the optional "rearview camera and front and rear park assist help in close-quarters maneuvering."

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.
