2011 Honda Odyssey Earns 5 Star Overall Vehicle Score

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s best-possible overall vehicle score or five stars has been given to the all-new 2011 Honda Odyssey. The Odyssey is one of the first two vehicles ever to earn all five stars in all of the seating positions for every crash test, crash test category and the overall rating.

Very few vehicles have achieved the federal government’s best-possible overall vehicle score and five stars in the combined frontal and side crash safety ratings, but Honda has now scored twice with the Odyssey and the Accord.

The Overall Vehicle Score is a new system that is a part of the federal government’s New Car Assessment Program which is being applied to 2011 models. An overall score is a combined score from frontal crash tests, side crash tests and rollover-resistance.

The 2011 Honda Odyssey Sedan received five stars in the following categories, overall vehicle rating, overall frontal crash safety rating for male and female, overall side crash safety rating for all of the seats, and rollover rating.

The 2011 Odyssey offers higher fuel economy than previous models, as well as a more unique style. The new 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management which comes standard with every 2011 model. The new V-6 can produce 248 horsepower and an EPA estimated fuel economy of 19mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

A rear entertainment system that offers a 16.2 inch ultra wide split-screen display along with HDMI video input is available on certain models of the 2011 Odyssey. Other upgrades are available on certain models, and Benson Honda can make sure you go home with the one that is perfect for your family and your budget.

Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States in Alabama, the Honda Odyssey is unarguably an American Made Vehicle. Benson Honda is proud to offer this safe, fun and well-built vehicle in our lot.

Please stop by Benson Honda in San Antonio, Texas to check out a few of our brand new Honda Odysseys. We would love to send you home with one.

The 2011 Honda Accord is known for its phenomenal fuel economy, receiving 20 miles per gallon city and also 30 miles per gallon highway, but it has also been known as one of the top value cars of its time.

The Honda Accord was recently named , for a record twenty-fifth time, one of Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars. “Accord”ing to Car and Driver, “the Accord remains inscrutably excellent. It manages to combine all the practical virtues you need in a family sedan—plenty of interior space, lots of available infotainment and trim choices, a quiet and relaxed ride, subdued engines, and effortless transmissions—with a fluid chassis that urges a driver to wring it out on back roads and off-ramps.”

If you are a driver concerned about your well-being as well as other “precious cargo” look no further than the new Accord. The brand new Accord received nothing lower than five-stars in all of the NCAP’s safety standards tests. Also Accords come standard with Advanced Compatibility Engineering, also known as ACE, body frame, Vehicle Stability Assist, and also traction control. The entire car is packed tight with more airbags than most car manufacturers would know what to do with, including front, front side, and side curtain airbags to keep all passengers safe.

With times being a little tougher financially as of late all car shoppers are looking for a great value when purchasing a new car, look no further than the ’11 Honda Accord. Kelley Blue Book honored the new Honda Accord with the “Best Resale Value Award in the Mid-Size Car” category. This award is essentially given out to cars that are anticipated to have the best resale value five years after purchasing.

The new Honda Accord is everything that a driver could possibly need and then some. Its sleek look and overall versatility make driving the Accord a treat for anyone. The fuel economy makes driving it affordable for all budgets and will help keep your hard earned money in your pocket. Make sure you hurry on down to Tom Benson Honda, your San Antonio Honda headquarters, and check out our selection of Accords and find the one that fits your needs.
