Honda Odyssey vs. Toyota Sienna
What are drivers looking for when they’re in the market for their next family car? Three things: spaciousness, dependability, and capability. The Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna offer all three. That’s why our team at Braman Honda of Palm Beach wrote this informative vehicle comparison. We’d like to help our friends in Wellington, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach, and the surrounding Florida communities find the best option for their families. Read more below.
In the Honda Odyssey, everybody will have enough space to stretch out and relax, regardless of whether it’s you, your spouse, your kids, or your friends, and regardless of whether it’s the first row, the second row, or the third row. Let’s take a closer look at the interior cabin dimensions of this minivan.
- Front row: 40.7 inches of headroom, 40.9 inches of legroom, 63.1 inches of shoulder room.
- Second row: 39.5 inches of headroom, 40.9 inches of legroom, 61.6 inches of shoulder room.
- Third row: 38.3 inches of headroom, 38.1 inches of legroom, 60.0 inches of shoulder room.
All in all, you (and everybody else) can enjoy a capacious passenger volume of 172.6 cubic feet. You could also customize the cabin to make more space for your cargo. We’re talking about 39 cubic feet, 93.1 cubic feet, or even as much as 158 cubic feet, depending on how you set up and stow the seats.
One thing’s for certain: Although the Toyota Sienna is generally a pretty roomy minivan, your legs will feel very cramped. That’s because it offers very little in terms of legroom: only 40.5 inches for front-seat passengers, 37.6 inches for back-seat passengers, and 36.3 inches for back-back-seat passengers. Boo!
The 2019 Odyssey also offers several driver-assistive technologies that can either help prevent a collision or significantly reduce the severity of the consequences should one happen to occur.
We’re talking about available systems like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Electronic Brake Distribution, Anti-Lock Braking System, Blind Spot Information System, and more.
While the 2019 Sienna also has many of the same advanced features, it doesn’t come with Lane Departure Warning. That’s a shame because it’s such a valuable feature on the highway.
This one is simple: We’ll just look at engine specs and fuel economy ratings. The Honda Odyssey comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque while maintaining fuel efficiency estimates of 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.1 The Toyota Sienna gives you the exact same fuel economy numbers, so they’re well-matched in that way.
The 2019 Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna are both great minivans. If you want something that can keep your family comfortable and safe, then there’s only one choice for you.
