Safety Features: The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country or 2014 Honda Odyssey?

February 7th, 2014 by

2014-Odyssey-Slider-2Drivers that look at minivans are rarely looking for something other than a family vehicle, and that means that if you’ve got your eye on the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, you’re probably concerned about the safety features, right?

We wouldn’t blame you; keeping your family safe in your new minivan should be a priority. And that’s why we think you should check out the 2014 Honda Odyssey. Not only does it give more in the way of features, but it’s the only minivan to be named a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Top Safety Pick+

While we don’t doubt that the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is a safe vehicle, the fact is that the Odyssey is still the only vehicle in its class to receive this high recognition from the IIHS. It’s not an easy award to get, either.

Not only must a vehicle score “good,” the highest score available from the IIHS, in traditional tests, but the new front overlap crash test has to have either an “acceptable” or “good,” and the vehicle has to have some form of frontal crash protection system available.

The Odyssey has all of this and more.

New Standard Features Keep Drivers Attentive

One of the biggest causes of accidents on the road is driver inattention. Whether you’re distracted by the kids, your phone, or the radio, if you aren’t paying attention to the road, it becomes easy to get into an accident.

We can’t do anything about the kids, but Honda has given the Odyssey new standard features like Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and steering wheel-mounted controls that help you focus more on your surroundings while still staying connected. It’s a win-win.
