The restyled 2021 Honda Odyssey has has received the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety – its highest rating possible. The 2021 Odyssey is also the first minivan to receive the 2020 TSP+ rating and the only minivan to earn a top rating for ease of use of its LATCH child seat attachment hardware.
To qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must earn good ratings in six crashworthiness tests, 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.
The 2021 Honda Odyssey has a new standard front crash prevention system, which received a superior rating from the IIHS. Also its new LED headlights earn an acceptable rating, which is an improvement over the 2020 version’s headlights, which were rated as marginal and poor.
