Honda used an MMC to improve how the Odyssey handled small-offset crash

The Odyssey has always scored far better than the Sienna. In 2010 the odyssey got 5 stars the sienna only 3. The difference is probably just as great now. Remember Toyota withdrew the 2014 RAV4 from the latest round of offset tests. The Camry and Prius were just so bad in prior tests. Toyota has a lot more to do than Honda to get a top safety pick plus rating. Their oft mentioned claim of having more top safety pick ratings is simply as they have more models period.

Nevermind the vacuum, the Odyssey Touring does not have lane watch. Unlike lesser models. Sure its got blind spot warning but so does a Kia Forte. Bizarre feature deletion.

Good to see it has an aluminum hood. The accord needs one too - just about the heaviest hood I have ever experienced...

Those two comments under the automotive news piece...funny.

Just to clarify A77X above,

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 was re-submitted to the IIHS for small overlap testing - even with some minor improvements, the new RAV4 scored poorly - see:
