Popular Science has awarded the 2018 Honda Odyssey CabinWatch™ with the Best of What’s New Award. This innovative, family-friendly feature uses a ceiling-mounted camera so parents have a birds-eye view into the second and third-row seats to make it the clear choice for your family [1].

How CabinWatch™ Helps Families

This birds-eye view gives you a top-down view of your loved ones in the backseat, including kids occupying rear-facing car-seats thanks to its angle. Images are displayed on the front-mounted 8-inch display audio touchscreen system. Thanks to infrared capability, you can see the children whether it is day or night, perfect for when you need to monitor a sleeping child. In addition, simple smartphone-like gestures mean you can zoom in or out for better views.
This award-winning minivan also offers some of the highest safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It also is a 5-star Overall Vehicle from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) [2].
