At the heart of every Honda Odyssey are two basic features that stand above the rest: safety and reliability. An unrelenting focus on these two features is part of what makes the Odyssey among the most popular minivans, year after year. To help you understand why these features are so important, we at King Auto Center in Lihue, HI want to take a moment to look at what sets the safety and powertrain of the Odyssey apart from the competition.

Powertrain

All Honda Odyssey vans are outfitted with a 280-horsepower V6 engine that produces 262 pound-feet of torque. This is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that is available with Honda's exceptional front-wheel-drive. The durable components in each Odyssey powertrain are covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, proving Honda's confidence in its product.

Safety

Long known as safety juggernauts, Honda vehicles consistently earn high rankings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, also known as the IIHS.* The Honda Odyssey is no exception. Each Odyssey model, including the LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims offer a large range of active and passive safety features to help you avoid accidents and survive accidents if they do occur.

EX and above trims feature a Blind Spot Warning System, ensuring that you're always aware of the vehicles that are around you. The Touring and Elite trims add a post-collision safety system as well as LED headlights to help light your way and avoid an accident at night. All Odyssey models offer daytime running lights, dual front side-mounted airbags, tire pressure monitoring, and emergency braking assist, among a host of other safety features.

The optional crash avoidance features on the Odyssey received a "Superior" rating from the IIHS, while the vehicle earned top-rated "Good" scores in all of the crash protection tests. Therefore, when you're hauling precious cargo, there's no better van to do the job than the Honda Odyssey.
