2016 Honda Odyssey vs. 2016 Toyota Sienna
The 2016 Honda Odyssey and the 2016 Toyota Sienna are both top picks for Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area families looking to upgrade to a three-row vehicle. Nothing can match the sheer versatility and space that a minivan affords. Take a look at how these two models stack up to make sure you’re making the best choice for your family!
Performance and Efficiency
Fuel economy is probably your first concern when shopping for your family road trip vehicle, but you also don’t want to struggle up to highway speeds when loaded with passengers and luggage. Take a look at how the powertrains compare in these two models.
The 3.5L V6 engine in the 2016 Honda Odyssey makes 250 hp and earns an EPA estimated 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined* when equipped with standard front-wheel drive and six-speed automatic transmission.
The 3.5L V6 in the 2016 Toyota Sienna makes only 245 hp, and with an identical drivetrain it is rated at 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway/21 mpg combined by the EPA.
It’s easy to see that the Sienna lags behind the Odyssey when it comes to both fuel economy and power output. The Odyssey even has a bigger gas tank, so it should be able to travel farther without fueling up.
Features and Options
While these similarly priced minivans both come with many of the up-to-date features you want, there are some important differences. For example, the 2016 Honda Odyssey comes standard with features like:
A vehicle theft deterrent system
A power driver seat
A stereo anti-theft system
None of those features are standard in the 2016 Toyota Sienna.
When it comes down to safety both of these models do well. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ratings they both get five-star overall ratings. In specific tests there are some differences however, with the 2016 Honda Odyssey earning five-star ratings in the Front Passenger Crash test and the Overall Frontal Crash Safety test, and the 2016 Toyota Sienna only receiving four-star ratings on both of those important tests. The Sienna also only received an ‘Acceptable’ rating in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Small Front Overlap test, while the Odyssey earned a ‘Good’ rating.
