2021 Honda Odyssey Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating
The 2021 Honda Odyssey has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest accolade, the 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) rating. It is the first minivan to be awarded with a 2020 TSP+ rating and the only minivan to earn a top rating for ease of use of its LATCH child seat attachment hardware. Further, Odyssey’s standard front crash prevention system earned “Superior” ratings from the Institute in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian avoidance tests. With this award, a combined seven Honda models have earned 2020 TSP ratings or better.
For the 2021 model year, all Odyssey models provide Honda Sensing® as standard equipment on all trim levels. Honda Sensing® is now available or standard on every Honda automobile model, and there are more than 3.5 million Honda vehicles on U.S. roads today featuring this comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection; Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
All Honda vehicles also benefit from Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems.
To qualify for a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn good ratings in six crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It also needs advanced or superior ratings for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention, as well as acceptable or good headlight ratings across all trim levels.
