The tested model of Honda Odyssey was introduced in Australia during 2005. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 will require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.
Dual front airbags, side airbags and ABS/EBD brakes are standard equipment on both variants. Head-protecting side curtains are standard on the Luxury variant. Electronic stability control is not available. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
