Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Honda Odyssey was introduced in the 1995 model year, and the Isuzu Oasis was introduced in 1996 (the Oasis continued through the 1999 model year).

Injury measures

Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be likely.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. After moving forward into the airbag, the dummy's head moved to the left, sliding off the airbag toward the driver door as the steering wheel moved upward.
