The 2019 Honda Odyssey leads all tested minivans in recent ratings by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including being the only minivan to achieve a “Good” rating for both the driver and passenger sides in IIHS’ strenuous Small Overlap Front Crash Test.

In addition, the institute recognized Odyssey with its top rating of “Good+” in its testing of Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) to determine the relative ease to safely install child safety seats in a vehicle.

No other tested minivan earned above an “Acceptable” rating from IIHS in LATCH testing.

Odyssey qualifies as a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick when equipped with available Honda Sensing and LED headlights.

A small overlap crash occurs when just the front corner of the vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object such as a tree or utility pole.

IIHS began rating vehicles for occupant protection in a driver-side small overlap front crash in 2012 and added the passenger-side test in 2017 to make sure occupants on both sides of the vehicle get equal protection.

Among 2018-19 minivans evaluated, the Odyssey was the only one to earn a “Good+” rating for Latch ease of use.

The “Good+” rating is for vehicles that meet the criteria for a “Good” rating and provide additional seating positions with easy-to-use Latch hardware.

The eight-passenger 2019 Odyssey offers five Latch-equipped seating positions, three in the second row and two in the third row.
