Loading up the family for a road trip shouldn’t be scary, but with the wrong minivan, it can be! Thankfully, the 2019 Honda Odyssey in Clear Lake is here to save the day, but what makes it so unique? We compared the Honda Odyssey to the Chrysler Pacifica, so you can easily decide which vehicle is perfect for your family the next time you’re out car shopping…
Making Each Drive Safer
The Honda Odyssey takes safety seriously, and this minivan is prepared for any situation that might arise with Honda Sensing®. This is a collection of safety features and driver-assistive technologies that work together to help prevent accidents, keep you on the road, and adjust to changing
Ergonomics and Economic Advantages
Besides having prominent features throughout the Odyssey, there are a few smaller ergonomic functions that will help with simplicity. With just the touch of a button, the front power windows can fully open and close making it more convenient when you go through toll booths or drive-up windows. To add a little more room for third-row passengers, the center armrest can fold making them more comfortable, and the Pacifica doesn’t even have an armrest for the third row. On top of these ergonomic functions, driving the Honda Odyssey has its economic advantages as well like insurance that will cost less, and the incredible resale value by retaining 44.5% to 48.99% of its original price after five years.
Fun Technology For All
We have explained the fantastic safety features and ergonomics of the Odyssey, now let’s dive into the entertaining technology that’s sure to keep everyone in the cabin occupied. The 8-inch Display Audio Touch-Screen allows you to swipe through your favorite music, podcasts, and directions on a stunning display, and can also tap into your iPhone® or Android™ devices for directions, text messages and your music library if NPR isn’t cutting it for today. For those in the back, the available Rear Entertainment System can stream DVD, or Blu-ray™ Discs to entertain even the rowdiest bunch, and if you need to make an announcement, you can activate Honda CabinTalk™ which allows you to override the RES and talk directly to passengers in the back.
