From carting the kids off to soccer practice to accommodating a larger family and maybe a pet or two, minivans can come in quite handy. However, as a family vehicle, it’s critical that it’s perfectly safe. After all, would you really want to entrust your family’s safety to anything less?
Well, Honda has the minivan for you – guaranteed to meet even moms’ and dads’ most discerning sense of safety: The 2011 Honda Odyssey. It just earned a top Overall Vehicles Score with perfect five-star ratings for the frontal crash test and both side tests. Moreover, the Odyssey earned four stars for the now-standard rollover rating, the highest possible score in its class.
Some of you might be rolling your eyes right about now. Maybe you think that the NHTSA hands out five-star ratings like some grandparents hand out candy to their grandchildren. Truth be told, the organization has really buckled down and made the entire process a lot more stringent, over the past couple of years. This year, for instance, only 11 vehicles out of the 50 tested earned a perfect rating.
So, what makes the 2011 Honda Odyssey so successful when presented with the NHTSA’s harder test requirements? The answer is Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. Extremely sound, the ACE design utilizes a network of components to distribute impact more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This effectively helps to reduce the crash energy transferred to the passenger compartment.
In addition to ACE, the 2011 Honda Odyssey, comes standard with a suite of advanced safety features designed to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. These include:
– Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control
– Anti-lock brake system (ABS)
– Three-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensor
– Dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags
– Driver’s front-side airbag
– Front passenger’s side airbag equipped with occupant position detection system
