2015 Honda Odyssey vs 2015 Toyota Sienna
Many families have been faced with choosing between the 2015 Honda Odyssey and the 2015 Toyota Sienna this year. These two minivans are basically the leaders when it comes to providing safe, comfortable, big-family transportation. They’re reliable, they pack plenty of efficiency, and they’re exactly what many drivers here in the Schaumburg and Elgin, IL area are looking for. So which one is for you? Read on to find out!
Performance and Efficiency
On the surface, the powertrains in these two minivans might look roughly equivalent. They both get a 3.5L V6 engine and an automatic transmission standard, but they’re far from equal. The 2015 Honda Odyssey makes 250 hp while the 2015 Toyota Sienna lags behind with 245 hp. And according to the EPA, the Sienna is rated at 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway/21 mpg combined*. The Honda Odyssey gets a 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined from the EPA*. You can see that the Odyssey is the easy choice here.
Features and Options
Both of these minivans are packed with convenient features, but what sets them apart? Well, there are quite a few features that are absent from the 2015 Toyota Sienna and standard on the 2015 Honda Odyssey. Those include:
- A rear-view camera
- A stereo anti-theft system
- Privacy glass
- A power driver seat
- A roof rack
- Seatback storage
You can see that the Odyssey is simply better equipped!
When it comes down to safety the 2015 Honda Odyssey wins out with the best possible Top Safety Pick + rating from the IIHS. While the Odyssey does receive good scores in crash tests from the IIHS, it does not have the option of frontal collision prevention systems, so it can not rank as a Top Safety Pick +. At this point the Sienna has yet to be completely tested by the NHTSA, but it did rank at four stars in rollover tests. The Odyssey has been completely tested and received a best possible five-star overall ranking.
