On the hunt for a passenger van that has more to offer than just interior space? There are two such vehicles for shoppers in Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle to choose from. In this comparison, we at Faulkner Toyota Harrisburg will show you how the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey stack up against each other.
Read ahead to see how they compare when it comes to performance, interior space, and features!
As competitively capable passenger vans, the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey have a few things in common under the hood. Both models are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that pairs with a standard front-wheel drivetrain. These standard drivetrains can be swapped out for an available all-wheel drive system, though, for enhanced control and confidence.
You’ll see these two models begin to differ when it comes to how this equipment performs. The Sienna manufactures an impressive 296 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque, which allows this model to tow 3,500 pounds of trailer weight without any additional equipment. You won’t get quite as much power with the Odyssey so you’ll only be able to tow 3,000 pounds unless you opt for additional equipment.
Inside the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey, you’ll have seven seats and 164 cubic feet of passenger space to share. However, when it comes to cargo space, you’ll find that the Sienna goes above and beyond.
With all seven seats up right and in place, the Sienna offers a whopping 39.1 cubic feet cargo space for you to take advantage of. Still need more? Utilize the split-folding second and third rows of seats to get the perfect passenger-to-cargo ratio. You can even put all five rear seats down to unleash the Sienna’s incredible 150 total cubic feet of available cargo space.
The Odyssey, unfortunately, does not offer the same amount of space. Without folding any seats down, you’ll only have 32.8 cubic feet of cargo space. On the same note, folding all five seats down will still only get you 144.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
On top of being spacious, the interior of the Toyota Sienna offers all the comfort and convenience features you need to keep everyone happy. Standardly, this model sports a dual-zone automatic climate control system that includes rear controls so back-seat passengers can easily get comfortable.
The Sienna also offers an array of top-notch technology features including an available Wi-Fi® hotspot and an available Bird’s Eye View Camera. The former feature allows you to wirelessly stream and surf on-the-go while the latter feature let’s you see a 360-degree view of your vehicle’s surroundings right on the infotainment screen.
As for the Honda Odyssey, you’ll have access to an available Wi-Fi® hotspot. Though you’ll have to upgrade for an automatic climate control system and you’ll have to live without the 360-degree camera as the Odyssey doesn’t offer it in any trim level.
The Honda Odyssey offers some good features but the Toyota Sienna provides the whole package. Get the full experience at Faulkner Toyota Harrisburg by coming down for a test drive. Shoppers in Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle should give us a call today to schedule one!
