The 2015 Odyssey is one of the safest vehicles on the road, just barely missing a perfect score.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Odyssey its Top Safety Pick award, which includes top 'good' ratings in each of five crashworthiness tests. It misses the TSP+ honors list this year, however, due to its available Forward Collision Warning system that only complies with IIHS 'basic' front crash prevention standards, however.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it five stars overall, with a sole four-star rating for rollover resistance.
All Odysseys offer standard Bluetooth as well as a rearview camera, while the LaneWatch sideview camera—which shows a camera view along the right side of the car when the right turn signal is activated—comes on all but the base LX model. EX-L trims and above include lane-departure and forward-collision warning systems. To get blind-spot monitors as well, you'll have to buy the most expensive model, the Odyssey Touring Elite.
Not only is the Odyssey safe in the event of an accident, both its handling and visibility are excellent, which can both aid in accident avoidance. 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.
