Among the Odyssey’s safety offerings, a variety of protective features come standard across the full Odyssey lineup of trim levels. These features include:
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
Daytime Running Lights
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Rearview Camera with Guidelines
Active Head Restraints for Driver and Front Passenger
Three-Row Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
Like all other new Honda models, the Odyssey features Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, which is an exclusive body design created to bolster passenger protection and crash compatibility when frontal collisions occur.
Other standard Odyssey safety features are designed specifically with children in mind, including the LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children), SmartVent front side airbags, and childproof rear door locks.
Other protective elements are offered for the higher Odyssey trim levels. These advanced driver-assist features further serve to keep you and your loved ones safe on the highways of life and include:
Honda LaneWatch: In a large vehicle like a minivan, blind spots can pose serious danger. The Honda LaneWatch blind spot display system has been designed to combat it. This cutting-edge feature employs a camera mounted on the passenger-side exterior mirror to deliver live video of the lane adjacent to the Odyssey. If there is a biker, another vehicle, or any other obstacle on the right side of the Odyssey, the Honda LaneWatch display system will clearly show you and help you avoid blind spot–related collisions.
Blind Spot Information System: The Odyssey’s Blind Spot Information System further helps drivers avoid blind spot–related accidents. This system uses radar sensors to monitor for vehicles at the side and behind the Odyssey, helping drivers change lanes more safely. If another vehicle is detected in the Odyssey’s blind spot, this system issues warnings to let the driver know.
Forward Collision Warning: The Odyssey’s Forward Collision Warning system is designed to detect other vehicles ahead of the Odyssey. If this system senses that the Odyssey is at risk of crashing into a detected vehicle, visual and audio alerts are issued to warn the driver.
Lane Departure Warning: The Odyssey’s high-tech Lane Departure Warning feature employs a small camera that is designed to detect lane markings on the roadway. If the system detects that the Odyssey is leaving its designated lane without the activation of the appropriate turn signal, the driver is warned with audio and visual alerts.
