It is obvious that 2016 Honda Odyssey and 2016 Toyota Sienna are main competitors on the American mini-vans market and something every soccer mum should drive. It will be quite hard to decide between these two since both come with very similar interior features and specs. Odyssey always had a little advantage, although Toyota is a much more popular brand in the US at this moment. Anyway, this is definitely going to be one though competition.
When it comes to exterior look it is obvious that Honda wanted its vehicle to look much sportier than a regular MVP. It looks sleek and it follows today’s trends when it comes to exterior design. Sometimes people mix it with a very futuristic looking station wagon, or even a tall sedan. Sienna on the other hand looks like a real mummy’s vehicle. It’s boxy with some curves in the front and back and last year it received a new front fascia design, with somewhat different grille and headlights.
When it comes to MPV class the most important segment in 2016 Honda Odyssey vs 2016 Toyota Sienna comparison is definitely the interior styling and features. Sienna comes with seven or eight seats and it is proud of its layout and seat mobility which gives owners the ability to change the amount of legroom in different seat rows. Honda’s model comes with mobile second row, biggest cargo area in the class and some almost luxury touches when it comes to cabin materials and surround sound system.
2016 Honda Odyssey Vs 2016 Toyota Sienna
One of the things Sienna comes with and it can’t be found almost in any other MPV is the driver’s microphone and of course no less than 12 cup holders. This model also offers a lot of cargo room, although it still falls behind Odyssey. Some more pricey hi-tech features like back seat entertainment display can be purchased as the additional options. Same goes for Honda’s model which comes with 7 inch infotainment display, Pandora compatibility and three zone climate controls. It also brings some better safety features if buyers choose one of the higher trim levels, so you might get forward collision warning and parking sensors as standard.
When it comes to performance Sienna has the advantage with 268 horsepower in contrast of the 248 ponies Honda model comes with. Under the hood of 2016 Honda Odyssey we are getting 3.5 liter V6 that can reach 19 mpg in city conditions and 28 mpg on the highway. Sienna comes with similar engine but much worse fuel efficiency of 15 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway. It also comes with 245 pound feet of torque and it can reach higher maximum speed than the Honda’s model, but this characteristic is not really important as much fuel economy is, at least for this class.
Until now both models are almost equal so the price will probably decide 2016 Honda Odyssey vs 2016 Toyota Sienna race. While Honda’s model can be bought for about $29,000 for the standard version, Toyota’s MPV’s price is set to $28,600. So with almost the same prices we would definitely choose Sienna, since it comes with slightly more power and with just a little bit worse fuel efficiency.
