Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2014-17 models

Tested vehicle: 2014 Honda Odyssey LX

The Honda Odyssey was re-engineered for the 2014 model year with an emphasis on improving occupant protection in small overlap frontal crashes.

Action shot taken during the small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained reasonably well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

Intrusion into the driver's space was reasonably well controlled, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low.
