Default 2011 Honda Odyssey Safety Features?

I am thinking about buying a car. I want to know the safety featues that the car has.

What safety features does it have? ABS brakes? Air bags? Automatic locking seatbelts? Traction Control? Electronic Stability Control? Head Restraints?

Impact Absorbing Interior Material? Back Up Sensing? Blind Spot Detection? Side Assist/Collision Warning? Tire Pressure Monitoring? Rollover Mitigation?

Emergency Response? Rearview Camera? Adaptive Headlights &/or Night Vision Assist? Occupant Sensitive/ Dual-Stage Airbags? Lane-Departure Warning? Wake-U-Up Safety?

What is the car's braking distance at different velocities? How does speed affect braking distance?

Sooo manny questions!!

Just kidding.

-It has ABS, Driver/Passenger Airbag With Dual Threshold Dual Stage Deployment, Seat Mounted Front Side Airbags, Front Second and Third Row Side Head Curtain Airbags Located In Headliner, Traction Control, Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist (AKA Electronic Stability Control), and Front Active Head Restraints.

-Not sure about impact absorbing interior material, maybe the roof liner for rollovers but you shouldn't need to as long as the passengers are wearing their seat belts since all modern vehicles these days have seat belt pretensioner (retracts and locks the passenger in their seat) during a mild or major accident. Back-up sensors I believe are only available on their EX-L w/ Nav & Touring models only. I don't think they have blind spot detection as standard, possibly for an option though as well as side assist/collision warning. Tire pressure monitoring is standard and it does have a Rollover Sensor.

-No Emergency Response standard. Emergency response is an aftermarket equipment. Like On-Star. Rear-view camera I believe are only available for the EX-L & Touring models with the navigation. Driver/Passenger Airbag With Dual Threshold Dual Stage Deployment is standard. Lane-Departure Warning and 'Wake-U-Up Safety' is definitely not standard on the Odyssey, however it possibly may have it as an option.

Breaking distance varies. However according to InsideLine, braking for 30-0mph is 33 feet, 60-0mph is 129 feet however this in the best case scenario and does not include passengers and brake fade.

Braking distance will always increase if there is passengers and heavy cargo in the vehicle, and speed DOES affect braking distance. From 60-0mph @ 129 feet is good, but from 70-0mph, a 10mph differences can balloon up to 200feet. The Odyssey does have Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assistance standard so it is keeping up with modern braking technology.
