MODERATE OVERLAP FRONT TEST

Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Honda Odyssey was redesigned for the 1999 model year.
Restraints/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.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The driver's survival space was maintained reasonably well, although there was more steering wheel movement than is desirable.
- Dummy movement was well controlled. The dummy settled straight back into the driver seat after the impact.
- This view of the Odyssey's underside shows that the engine cradle (green) and side rails (yellow) bent and absorbed much of the crash energy, reducing intrusion into the driver space.
- Side airbags: front seat-mounted torso airbags (beginning with 2002 models)
- Antilock brakes
