Peace of Mind with the 2018 Honda Odyssey Safety Features

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is a minivan with capacity, performance, and features like no other, but what truly sets the Odyssey apart from the competition is its focus on active and passive safety features, as well as advanced driver-assistance systems that make it a popular choice for Wisconsin families. Read on and learn why The Car Connection said, “The redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey is exceptionally well thought out, brimming with cool tech, spacious, comfortable, and well controlled on the road. Add in plenty of safety features, and it’s a smart way to carry the family.”

Active Safety

Vehicle Stability Assist: When understeering or oversteering is detected, this system helps to stabilize the Odyssey and maintain traction on slippery, loose, or wet roads by applying brake force and adjusting the engine’s output intelligently.

Superior Braking: The anti-lock braking system prevents the Odyssey’s wheels from locking up while maintaining traction and reducing braking distance, helping you stop faster and keep control. The amount of force applied to each wheel is varied by the electronic brake distribution system based on road conditions, speed, and other road factors. These systems, working with brake assist, allows drivers to come to a stop more quickly in situations where emergency braking is detected.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The rearview camera provides you with three views to help you navigate out of tight spots like parking lots or driveways on busy roads—wide, normal, and top-down. With the included guidelines, you’ll be able to steer your Odyssey easily to safety. On the EX and above models, dynamic guidelines adjust automatically to your surroundings to show the best path.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Over- or underinflated tires can cause loss of traction, control, and performance. This system helps you avoid this with an indicator light that notifies you of any issues with the pressure in your tires.

Daytime Running Lights: The Odyssey is more visible to pedestrians and other motorists during the day with brilliant lights that turn on automatically. More efficient LED daytime running lights are available on the EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite models.

Honda Sensing

Honda used their best engineers in designing the highly advanced Honda Sensing suite of technologies. These systems, standard on the Odyssey EX model and above, give you an extra set of eyes and a copilot to keep you informed on the road.

Forward Collision Warning: A visual and audible warning is engaged with the camera mounted between the rearview mirror and the windshield detects a vehicle in front of the Odyssey, and if action is not taken, it will beep repeatedly and blink until your Odyssey is on a safer path or the vehicle is no longer detected.

Lane Departure Warning: Separate audio and visual warnings are engaged when the Odyssey moves out of its lane without a turn signal being activated.

Collision Mitigation Braking System: To prevent collisions or minimize the damage inflicted by an unavoidable one, the CMBS will apply the brakes when a vehicle heading toward you is detected by the radar sensor.

Road Departure Mitigation System: When drifting is detected without a turn signal being engaged, steering torque is applied to assist the driver in staying on the road. The RDM also applies brake pressure to help keep the Odyssey from moving out of its lane.

Driver-Assistance Technology

Driver-assistance technology has come a long way over the past few years, and the Odyssey is equipped with the latest in the segment. Driver-assistance technology is meant to take some of the manual hassle out of driving. These systems are standard on the EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite trim options.

Adaptive Cruise Control: ACC adjusts your speed when a slower-moving vehicle is detected in front of your Odyssey. When the vehicle is no longer present, the system will increase your speed to the one you initially set.

Auto High-Beam Headlights: Your high beams are automatically engaged in darker environments and lower when vehicles are detected approaching or in front of the Odyssey.

Blind Spot Information System: Sensors in the rear bumper detect vehicles and objects in the blind spot and provide a warning to help you avoid collisions when changing lanes.

Cross Traffic Monitor: When in reverse, the cross traffic monitor will alert the driver to any approaching traffic coming from the sides of the Odyssey.

Passive Safety

Minivans are some of the best options for large families and growing families alike. The 2018 Odyssey is loaded with passive safety features to keep your family safe should the unthinkable happen.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure: Honda’s signature ACE body design minimizes the effects of a collision by driving energy away from the driver and passengers.

Airbags: Advanced front, SmartVent front side, third-row side curtain, and driver and front passenger knee airbags give you protection where you need it most.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH): Honda’s LATCH system allows you to securely and easily install child safety seats.

Child-Proof Rear Door Locks: All rear doors include an option to disable unlocking of the Odyssey from the inside, preventing little ones from inadvertently exiting the vehicle.
