As you may have heard, the IIHS recently added a new component to their vehicle testing, making it harder than ever to earn a perfect score. All vehicles must now pass a roof strength test, in addition to the previously instituted frontal offset-, side impact-, and rear crash tests. The stringent addition didn't catch the 2011 Honda Odyssey off guard, though. Quite the opposite... It earned perfect "Good ratings across the board.
The 2011 Honda Odyssey is, in fact, only the second minivan named an IIHS Top Safety Pick, since the organization added the roof-strength requirement. Even more impressive: The new Honda Odyssey's roof is able to withstand a force greater than five times the minivan's weight. To put this into perspective, federal testing standards mandate that vehicle roofs be able to withstand 1.5 times the vehicles overall weight.
So you see, the 2011 Honda Odyssey doesn't just meet the IIHS's discriminating safety standards, it far exceeds them. What makes the Odyssey even more impressive is its suite of state-of-the-art safety technologies designed to prevent accidents from happening in the first place.
