2021 Honda Odyssey Crash Test Rating Shows Safety is Standard

Christian Wardlaw | Sep 28, 2020

The refreshed 2021 Honda Odyssey receives changes designed to ensure maximum safety ratings. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the latest version of the Odyssey earns a Top Safety Pick+ rating for the 2020 calendar year.

Changes to the 2021 Honda Odyssey include standard LED headlights with automatic high-beam activation, and standard Honda Sensing advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) that prevent collisions from occurring. Additionally, the Odyssey earns the highest crash-protection ratings in each collision assessment.

The most popular minivan among retail customers, the Odyssey faces new competition. Last year, the low-priced Chrysler Voyager debuted. This year, the Chrysler Pacifica gets significant updates, including an optional all-wheel-drive system. Also, the 2021 Toyota Sienna arrives with a standard hybrid powertrain and dramatic new styling, while retaining its AWD option. In 2022, a new Kia Sedona is due, aiming to reinvent what a minivan can be.

In the meantime, the 2021 Odyssey continues to offer what has made it a success for two decades. From its handy second-row seating configurations and roomy cargo area to its powerful 3.5-liter V-6 engine and rewarding (for a minivan) driving dynamics, there remains plenty of reason to choose this Honda. Not the least of which is safety, especially important in a vehicle designed to haul the most precious cargo: your family.

Multiple trim levels are available, starting at just $31,790. The 2021 Honda Odyssey is on sale now.
