Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. The ACE™ design utilizes a network of connected structural elements and high-strength steel to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup. This helps the driver retain steering control during hard braking. The Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) system balances the front/rear braking forces during dynamic loading.
Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
The Odyssey enhances its visibility to other drivers by incorporating Daytime Running Lights (DRL) up front.
Driver's and Front Passenger's Active Head Restraints
In a sufficient rear-end impact, the active head restraints move forward and up, helping reduce the likelihood of neck injury.
Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
The vehicle is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). One or both of these airbags will be deployed only in the event of a sufficient frontal impact. If deployed, these airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seatbelt usage and/or other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seatbelts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal collisions.

Note: Airbags inflated for display purposes.
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
Part of the braking system, EBD is a more exacting method of ensuring that proportionate braking forces are applied to the brakes. In order to avoid needless ABS cycling during a non-emergency stop, EBD uses the ABS sensors to detect impending rear-wheel lockup. Then it signals an additional ABS solenoid to reduce braking force to the rear and add more to the front.
Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
Front 3-point seat belts with automatic tensioners ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact.
Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the side airbag inflates to help protect the driver's or front passenger's upper body. The Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) utilizes sensors in the front passenger's seatback to detect the height and seating position of the occupant. If a child or small-statured adult is leaning into the deployment path of the side airbag, sensors deactivate it.
Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH): Lower Anchors (2nd-Row All, 3rd-Row Outboard), Tether Anchors (2nd-Row All, 3rd-Row All)
For 2011, Odyssey models are available with up to five Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH), three in the second-row seating positions (EX and above) and two in the outboard third-row seat positions. The LATCH system provides two lower anchors and an upper tether anchor. When used with a compatible child seat, the LATCH system provides attachment points between the child seat and the vehicle seat.
Three-Row Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
The side curtain airbag module is positioned along the side of the headliner. In the event of a sufficient side impact or rollover, this system will activate to help provide protection for front and outboard rear occupants.

Note: Airbags inflated for display purposes.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
This system monitors the pressure in all four tires, and alerts the driver when pressure loss in any tire becomes significantly low[1].

[1] For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
Working with ABS and the Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control[1] enhances stability by detecting oversteer or understeer, and by then braking individual wheels and/or reducing throttle to help restore the driver's intended path of travel.

[1] VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle's course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
