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

The Honda Odyssey was redesigned for the 1999 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any hard structures that could cause injury. There was too much upward movement of the steering wheel.
