The IIHS Names the Odyssey one of the Safety Vehicles on the Road

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released data that indicates that the Honda Odyssey is one of the safest vehicles on the road right now. The Odyssey was one of only nine vehicles that recorded zero fatalities per million registered vehicles on the road for model years 2009 to 2012. This is the first time that the IIHS has ever recorded vehicles with zero deaths in the organization’s history. Read on to learn more about these impressive and important statistics and to find out just where the Honda Odyssey fits in!

The Odyssey Among the Safest Vehicles

In its studies of mass-market vehicles from 2009 to 2012, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recorded that the industry-wide average for traffic fatalities was 28 deaths per one million, based on registered 2011 models in 2012. The good news is that industry-wide that’s a huge improvement from earlier statistics. In fact, the IIHS estimates that if safety technology remained at the levels of vehicles back in 1985, about 7,700 more people would have died in traffic accidents – luckily, that was not the case.

The statistics recorded by the IIHS show that the Honda Odyssey was among the nine top vehicles that recorded zero deaths per million registered vehicles. It’s worth noting that the Honda Pilot also narrowly missed making the mark, with just two traffic fatalities per million registered vehicle years.

David Zuby, IIHS executive vice president and chief research officer said, “The complete elimination of traffic deaths is still many decades away, and, along with vehicle improvements, getting there will require changes in road design and public policy that can help protect all road users. Still, the rise in the number of vehicles with zero driver deaths shows what’s possible.”

The Honda Odyssey currently offers features like antilock disc brakes, electronic traction and stability control, a long list of standard airbags, including side curtain airbags, and a standard rearview camera. The 2015 Honda Odyssey also received top marks in IIHS crash test ratings, earning a Good crash test score in all categories.
