Choosing from among the many 8 seater cars on the market can be hard, since there are so many out there. One thing that many people look at when choosing a new car is safety ratings. Some of the top raters of cars include U.S. News and World Report, Consumer Reports, and Edmunds. Typically, the eight passenger vehicles that make the cut are the Honda Odyssey, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, and the Honda Pilot. Oftentimes the ratings for safety on any vehicle are taken from data that is compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA. This agency actually developed the safety ratings system that is based on front crash, side crash, and rollover resistance ratings. The very safest car on the road among 8 seaters according to the NHTSA is the Honda Odyssey.
