    Third Row of the 2016 Volvo XC90 vs. 2016 Honda Odyssey-which is safer?

    Hi,
    I need to use the third row of my car. Does anyone know if the third row of the 2016 Volvo XC90 or the Honda Odessey third row is safer? Thank you.

    If you're looking to put a harnessed child back there, the Volvo doesn't have tether anchors. The Honda does.

    In addition, there is more space between the back of the vehicle and the occupants in the Odyssey than in the 2016 XC90. The third row of the 2016 XC90 will also have any occupants taller than 5'9" or so with their heads touching the ceiling. I didn't see any official restrictions/warnings in the manual on height of the third row occupants, however (unlike with the Mitsubishi Outlander).

    The 2016 XC90 has great head support in both 3rd row positions. I don't know about the Odyssey, but the Honda Pilot IMO did not have adequate head support for a taller child or adult in the middle seat of the 3rd row. The seat belt fit in that position was also less than ideal.
