Inside Line

The 2014 Odyssey is one of the safest vehicles on the road, just barely missing a perfect score. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it five stars overall, with a sole four-star rating for rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Odyssey its Top Safety Pick+ award.

Both handling and outward visibility are at the front of its class, we think, and they're both attributes that might help avoid an accident. The Odyssey includes the expected safety features, such as stability control, anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger front side airbags, and full-length side curtains, but what makes it a standout is that it offers a a class-leading six child-seat tether locations and five LATCH locations (the official clips). What that means is that you can fit up to five child seats in some cases--or up to four seats of any kind.

All Odysseys offer standard Bluetooth and a LaneWatch sideview camera, as well as a rearview camera. To get blind-spot monitors, forward-collision and lane-departure warnings, you'll have to buy the most expensive Touring Elite model.

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.
