Let the 2018 Odyssey Keep Your Family Safe
Let the 2018 Odyssey Keep Your Family Safe! Recently we reported that the 2018 Honda Odyssey was awarded the User Experience Award by Ward’s Auto. Tom Murphy, Senior Editor at WardsAuto, highlighted such features as the multi-configurable Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™, HondaVAC®, CabinTalk™ and CabinWatch™, saying the Odyssey has “enough family-friendly features to lure away shoppers who were considering a utility vehicle instead.”
Now we are thrilled to shared that the 2018 Honda Odyssey has been awarded the highest safety ratings of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when equipped with Honda Sensing and the LED headlights. Honda Sensing now comes standard starting with the EX trim and above, which accounts for 99% of 2018 Odyssey sales.
Honda Sensing technologies include Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). All 2017 Honda models come equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera as standard equipment. Additional standard safety equipment on all Honda models include Advance Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); advanced front airbags; and front side airbags.
“Odyssey was designed to keep everyone in the family happy, and helping to keep everyone safer is a crucial part of that mission,” said Ray Mikiciuk, assistant vice president of Honda Automobile Sales. “Honda’s goal of reaching a collision-free society includes safety improvements for each new generation of Odyssey without having to sacrifice minivan-first technologies like available Magic Slide SeatTM, which consumers have come to love.”
