Families in search of a new car often have many requirements in their prospective vehicle. From safety and comfort to strength and efficiency, there are standards family vehicles must meet in order to make the cut. When comparing two of the most popular family-centric vehicles on the market - the 2016 Toyota Sienna and 2016 Honda Odyssey - drivers will be able to choose the ride that offers more of what they want and need behind the wheel.
The 2016 Honda Odyssey is a staple in the minivan segment. Coming in with an estimated 28 mpg highway fuel economy, the Odyssey is one of the more efficient models in its class. With a similar amount of cargo space as the Sienna at 148.5 cubic feet, the Odyssey is undoubtedly spacious. However, it does fall behind in the categories of strength power, as it only offers 248 horsepower under the hood and does not come equipped with all-wheel drive.
In addition to being incredibly powerful with a 266-horsepower performance, the Sienna is also the only family minivan offering all-wheel drive. While the Toyota model only comes in with an estimated 25 mpg highway fuel economy, it delivers strength on the road that protects and accommodates larger families and passenger groups. Inside its cabin is space for up to eight passengers or 150.0 cubic feet of cargo, and the upgraded Sienna will be available with new Siri Eyes Free mode and the Navigation Scout GPS App Link for Entune Audio Plus models. In the areas of comfort, strength and efficiency, the Sienna ticks all of the boxes for growing families. Once the 2016 Toyota Sienna arrives at the dealership, drivers will be able to experience all the vehicle has to offer in person.
