Bigger is definitely better, and the 2019 Honda Odyssey can handle it all with seating for eight, configurable seats for expanded cargo space and advanced technology for the whole family to enjoy! Don’t just take our word for it, check out the article below where we compared the Odyssey to the 2020 Toyota Sienna, and make your judgments about which minivan is better.
Saving you a bundle at the pump has always been a sought after feature when shopping for a new vehicle, and the Odyssey doesn’t disappoint with a better fuel economy of 19 city and 28 highway* mpg, versus the Sienna FWD’s 19 city and 26 highway mpg. And when you’re filling up at the pump, you won’t have to worry about messing with a gas-cap, because this minivan has a cap-less fueling system which reduced fuel evaporation that causes pollution. The Odyssey also hosts an engine control system to shut down half of its cylinders for more improved fuel efficiency, and it can even automatically turn off when the minivan is in heavy traffic or stopped at stoplights. But don’t worry, once you’re ready to go, the engine will roar back to life so you won’t miss a beat. The Sienna doesn’t offer any of these three features, making it quite evident that it isn’t as eco-friendly.
The way the Odyssey is constructed does more than provide an updated look. Inside the cabin, you’ll notice there is less engine vibration coming from the passenger area, due to the electronically controlled liquid-filled main engine mount. This system uses an electric current to change the liquid’s viscosity, which dampens the engine entirely at all RPMs. On top of this, the Odyssey also uses computer-generated active noise cancellation technology to remove any additional noise, making the cabin a quiet oasis. The Sienna doesn’t offer active noise cancellation and only uses conventional solid rubber engine mounts to dampen any vibrations.
While the Odyssey comes with plenty of benefits, you can take advantage of indirectly, there are also ergonomic features to make your drive more convenient. Instead of a traditional lever for the brake, the Odyssey’s power break can be activated and released with one touch and even automatically. To ensure that everyone’s smartphones and other compatible devices are fully charged, the Odyssey Elite has a wireless phone charging system located in the center console. Both features aren’t available on the Sienna, so you would still have to manually operate the brake and use a cord to charge your smart devices.
