2016 Honda Odyssey vs 2016 Dodge Caravan
The 2016 Honda Odyssey and the 2016 Dodge Caravan both provide families here in the Crystal Lake and Elgin, IL area with a three-row minivan platform that can tackle any daily adventure or errand. They might look similar on the surface, but the devil is in the details, so read on to see how they really stack up side by side!
We’re sure that fuel costs and carbon emissions are among your top concerns when shopping for a new minivan. According to EPA estimates, the 2016 Dodge Caravan is rated at 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway/20 mpg combined in the base trim level. The 2016 Honda Odyssey earns an EPA rating of 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined* with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. You can see that the Honda Odyssey is going to save you money long term on your fuel bill.
Cargo and Seating
Another top priority for minivan shoppers is space. Why else would you be shopping for a minivan if you didn’t put a premium on seating and cargo? With the 2016 Dodge Caravan you’ll find plenty of space with up to 33.0 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in place and up to 143.8 cubic feet of cargo space total. That might sound impressive, but the 2016 Honda Odyssey is simply better, with 38.4 cubic feet behind the back seats and up to 148.5 cubic feet of cargo space total. The Odyssey also offers about ten percent more passenger volume, with more room for almost every passenger in the car.
Features and Options
When it comes to comfort and convenience features you’ll find that the 2016 Honda Odyssey is simply better equipped. The Odyssey offers key standard features such as:
Rear seat climate controls
A power driver seat
A rearview camera
Whiplash preventing head restraints in all positions
The 2016 Dodge Caravan is missing all of those features in its base trim level.
