Toyota Sienna vs Honda Odyssey
If you want a family vehicle that marries utility with style, you’re probably a good match for either the Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey. However only one of these vans can give you exactly what you need for your drives through Trevose, Philadelphia, and Bensalem.
To help you determine which one that is, the team at Faulkner Toyota Trevose compared the Sienna vs Odyssey.
Toyota Sienna vs Honda Odyssey Dimensions and Seating
Drivers who lead the carpool to baseball practice will like that both the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey have enough seating for up to eight passengers. This means that you can fit almost the whole team as you head to your next away game.
Even with the full car, both vans have more than 38 cubic feet of trunk space behind the third row where you can fit baseball bats, gloves, cleats, and even a cooler full of water and orange slices.
When you hit the road, rear seat passengers may find a bit more comfort in the Sienna, which has a unique feature called lounge seating. This available feature equips the available second-row captain’s chairs with a recline feature, adjustable footrests, and arm rests.
Unfortunately, the Odyssey doesn’t offer a similar level of comfort.
Driver-Assist Features for the Sienna and Odyssey
When you’re carrying precious cargo in the back seat, it’s nice to feel like you have a second set of eyes on the road. The Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey understand that and provide a suite of smart safety features designed to improve driver awareness.
This includes features like forward collision warning, which scans up ahead for potential hazards. If detected, it’ll provide an alert to slow down and can even automatically hit the brakes to try to avoid an impending impact.
They also both have a lane keeping system that detects when you’re swaying from your intended lane of travel and gently steers you back between the lines.
One big difference here is that the Toyota Sienna makes all these features standard while the Honda Odyssey requires you to upgrade before this level of safety is available.
2019 Sienna vs Odyssey Infotainment Systems
As you and your family hit the road for your next vacation, you want to have the right infotainment features to keep everyone entertained and connected along the way. Both the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey deliver here.
They both come standard with Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity, which allows you to wirelessly stream music from your phone through the car’s speakers. It also lets you answer or make important phone calls without taking your hands off the wheel.
If you need to get the kids’ attention, both vans also feature an in-car PA system that lets you speak through the vehicle’s speakers. This way, you can make sure that everyone hears you without having to turn around or raise your voice.
They also keep kids entertained in the back seat with an available rear-seat entertainment system. In the Honda Odyssey, this includes a 10.2-inch display screen where kids can watch Blu-ray™ discs.
The Toyota Sienna, however, has an available 16.4-inch split-screen display. Not only is this a larger screen for movie-viewing, the split-screen feature lets passengers view multiple movies at once. This means no arguing over what to watch.
