These four features help make the 2018 Honda Odyssey safe

May 15th, 2018 by

The 2018 Honda Odyssey is a great minivan with innovative features that make family life easier (case in point: the HondaVAC®), a stylish interior for parents to enjoy, and available rear-seat entertainment to keep the kiddos occupied.

Back in February we blogged about the Honda Odyssey and its features. Today, we're going to delve into a more specific area: safety. Safety is key on all vehicles, but that's especially the case with minivans as they are regularly carrying precious cargo. Here are some of safety features you can find on the Odyssey.

Honda Sensing®: this is a suite of advanced safety technologies and is standard from the EX trim and up. Honda Sensing® includes the following — Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Braking System, and Forward Collision Warning.

Blind-Spot Monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert: just like Honda Sensing®, this technology is standard on all trims except for the base model. It's especially useful when passing on the highway, because you know how cars can sneak up into your blind spot!

CabinTalk™: this in-car "PA" system lets you easily communicate with second- and third-row passengers, even if they have headphones in and are watching a DVD. Now you don’t need to go hoarse and work yourself up when you want to relay something, which means better road concentration.

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™: how can smartphone integrations make for safer travel? Any measures you can take to reduce the learning curve of an infotainment system are appreciated and seeing familiar smartphone icons makes the system easier to use when you're in a parking lot or traveling across the State to see family!
